November Round Up

Last catch up! Now just need to keep on top of it ....... again :) Being 5 months behind I did think about just stopping, but then Joseph told me him and Kerrie were looking through it recently and how much they enjoyed it. And it reminded me that that's the number one reason I have a blog - for recording for the family.

Trip to seaside.
Seeing dad and Sandra.
Usual fostering stuff - meetings; HV; optician; Silsip; messy play;  LAC awards - actually, more fostering related appointments than anything else during November.
Ella's annual EHCP review.
Left the contract job earlier than planned.
Ella had an award ceremony.
Cinema with Jeff, Daddy's Home 2 - bloody funny!
Updated my Paediatric First Aid training.
Lots of pantomime rehearsals.
Interviews.
Had a whole day scrapbooking - yay!

7 Day Black & White Challenge

I was tagged by a friend to take part in the 7 day everyday life black and white photograph challenge. Couldn't refuse, love taking photo's. Wasn't told until half way through that it wasn't supposed to include human beans but whatever, I look on it as artistic licence ...... or isn't the very point of having rules to be able to break them :)

DAY 1 - I've been creating a monthly scrapbook album for baby.









DAY 2 - Trip to Durley Chine










DAY 3 - Love this simple photograph


DAY 4 - Reading train station. Actually impressed with this photo, every now and then I take a photo and think 'Wow, I could be a photographer ........ then I take another and remember why I couldn't!'







DAY 5 - Another everyday moment










DAY 6 - My bedside table! Which did have a tidy up before I took the photograph :)









DAY 7 - My craft room - severely neglected at the moment :(

Durley Chine, Dorset

I love the seaside.

I mean I don't love it as much as the mountains.

I wouldn't want to live by the sea.

But there is something that draws me. 

I don't like just sitting on the beach in the heat, it's so boring.

In fact, give me a sea front in autumn and winter any day over a hot sunny day.

Clear skies.

Fresh air.

And a lack of crowds is a huge plus.

So even though it was November we decided to go down to Durley Chine in Dorset for the day.

The skies were blue, lots of fresh air and no crowds.

And at the end of the day we surprised dad for dinner.

Perfect.
