Me & Mine – January

by Clare Mansell
Me & Mine – January

It’s literally taken me years to finally get round to joining the Me & Mine project hampered by every excuse you can think of, but we’re off to a good start for 2017, it’s the beginning of a new year and we’ve got a photo of all of us!

Thinking about blogging this year it was very clear to me that I wanted to focus on creative projects and quality over quantity. I’m happier ignoring my stats, opting out of charts and working on a small number of collaborations, so the Me & Mine project fits nicely into that.

The idea is to capture one photo every month of all of us to have a record of our family throughout the year. Family photos with all of us together are rare so this will give us a great reason to make them happen.


Here’s what we’ve been up to in January…

Clare : Enjoying the challenge of a year of simplicity, loving listening to podcasts, particularly the Strangers series and really really looking forward to two weeks in France this summer.

Jim : Enjoying playing golf, looking forward to ditching coffee capsules and getting a proper new machine and looking fab in his new bright green trousers!

: Still singing the songs from his nativity play, carrying his two ‘babies’ everywhere, loving learning about dinosaurs at school and enjoying playing battleships with Jim

Alice : Making herself heard all the time and demanding what she wants! Loves Port Salut and satsumas or eating food that was prepared for someone else. Likes trying to steal Theo’s ‘babies’, swimming and sleeping.

This is such a gorgeous photo. I started to join in last year and was so sad I didn’t have many before then so even if it feels like a chore (mainly to my husband!) I am so happy we have so many now. And i relate to the simple life especially with blogging, I am trying to be passionate and less worried or comparing this year. Makes for a happier everyone x

It’s great that you are joining in this year, I really treasure my family photos from these posts as it forces you – or should I say reminds you! – to take them even if you’re not feeling like it! x
