Me & Mine – February 2018

Me & Mine – February 2018

by Clare Mansell

It’s our second year taking part in the Me & Mine project and looking back on the last 14 months of photos it is really lovely to see the changes in the kids… and also personally to remind myself how much I do not miss long hair! If you haven’t joined yet it really is worth a few minutes of effort and cajoling every month to create a special family record. This month Jim actually responded with “ok, no problem” when I asked to take the photo – that’s progress!

Home Life Project – February

Home Life Project – February

by Clare Mansell

As many of you will recall, this weekend was to be the first weekend since October when I was to have my Nikon D600 to take photos for the Home Life Project. I was feeling quite upbeat and had planned to see if I could shoot some video alongside the photos… all went well until about 10am yesterday when my camera (back from repair two weeks ago) started playing up again.

Having a faulty camera is problematic in many ways, but one of the many knock on effects is that it completely pours cold water on any creative spark you might have had… and so my day went rapidly downhill and my poor husband had to put up with me getting grumpier and grumpier.

So I guess it is kind of appropriate that this month I begin with a photo of Alice looking rather cross as she struggles to carry six books downstairs for breakfast… toddler logic!

I’m off to the camera shop again tomorrow <sigh> who knows what the state of play will be next month…

Me & Mine – January

Me & Mine – January

by Clare Mansell

I’m starting 2018’s Me & Mine project a little late as nearly half of January was lost to the flu! The children had mild doses of it, but I succumbed completely and had several days in bed (or on the sofa) and took 12 days to start feeling normal again, very unlike me as I’ve never had flu before. I don’t know if it makes it better or worse being ill in the most miserable month of the year, but I’m not sad to see the back of January… or the flu… roll on February!

Our photo was taken at Chichester Marina one of the few places where we can go for a mud free dog walk at this time of year… and was a couple of days late, but who’s counting!
