seasons of change

January 12, 2015 at 8:00 am 3 comments

Some people have a tradition of taking a photo each New Year’s day to mark the changing faces of their growing family.  I’m not one of those forward thinking people, though I really like the idea of it.  We didn’t even think to get the camera out much at Christmas or during our traditional New Years day walk. It was quite refreshing in fact not to be documenting the simplicity of quiet moments together or time spent with friends.  We do have a changing-face-of-E measure of sorts; sitting inside the sculpture at our favourite gardens.  This frosty walk was the last of our Hillfield Garden visits for 2014.

    Recently came across this:

    It gives me a (nice) chill every time I go back and look at the pictures. The life, the experiences, the connections which the images portray – amazing!

    So, how about an annual picture of you, G and E? The lady who took the lovely 3rd birthday portraits might be a good place to start?

      that is a great article and love the foresight they had to do that every year!
      Yes we do need to do an annual pic! We have the lovely photos our friend took when E was 10 months old and then not much in between! At E’s birthday party last week we didn’t even get one of the 3 of us, too busy playing host! Perhaps I should reignite the ”Me and Mine” monthly family portrait posts for 2015!

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
