Home Life Project – March

by Clare Mansell
Home Life Project – March

At lunchtime yesterday I paused my photo taking to look back on the pictures from the Home Life Project a year ago and I was reminded that it was muddy, the weather was miserable and everyone was itching for spring to start. Does that sound at all familiar? There was one picture in particular where Alice’s buggy was parked in a sea of mud and I remember when I took it thinking, I just can’t deal with this any more. By April though we were barefoot in the garden and hunting Easter eggs at a family lunch. These next few weeks of early spring will make a lot of difference.

So if finding inspiration this weekend was a struggle, you are not alone. I took my photos yesterday and the weather was beastly. We delayed our morning dog walk by an hour hoping for a forecast break in the weather, but got caught in a downpour anyway! Alice faired better than most of us, as after several dog walks where she has returned caked in mud, we ordered her a splashsuit and it’s brilliant. The water and mud just falls off it and despite these photos she was dry underneath it all when we got back to the car.

When Theo and Jim disappeared to the driving range in the afternoon I got the tripod out to get some photos and Alice made her first photographic contribution to this project, can you spot the picture where she fired the remote?!


As always I’m looking forward to seeing what you captured. If you share your posts and photos on social media don’t forget to tag them with #homelifeproject

What a shame the weather was so bad. We had quite a spring like day on Saturday and today. Yesterday was miserable though. I love your collection of photos. I love the puddle suit and the picture of your daughter in the muddy puddle is great.

You are so right… Spring is just around the corner! We just need to hang on a few more weeks!! A gorgeous set of pictures, despite the weather… And little Alice in her waterproofs- so cute! Thank you for hosting!

Oh your photos are beautiful. I need to get better at focusing on the detail, not framing the whole scene and just looking at one aspect. LOVE the puddlesuit! Thanks for hosting and inspiring me to take more, better photos x

I love Alice’s little face in the muddy puddle. I wish I had pics of M in puddles like this but he was never a fan.
