"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
- Marcus Aurelius
It's been AGES since I wrote a real journal with random pictures, words, and life things. Have you written one lately? Maybe it's time!
So where am I at the moment? I shall tell you. For the past six months or so, whenever I log on, my first stop is projecteducate
. I live and breathe, projecteducate
. Along with my fellow editing team (which is growing and is awesome) we plot and scheme and plan all sorts of weeks and if we're not running the weeks ourselves you'll often find us proof reading the articles or getting another week up and running and planned. We have Infrared, Macro, Still Life and much more coming up. I urge you to watch projecteducate
- want to write an article? Note projecteducate
- we want your articles!
A year has passed almost, since I moved into a brand shiny new house with TouchedD
. Our bare bones house and garden which was a patch of green and nothing more has sprouted into something with plants, flowers, runner beans and even rhubarb! The house has a fireplace, furnishings, pictures, art and even a sewing box which I have yet to use... We're complete right now with our little bundle of fluff - Maisy the crazy doggeh. 365 days almost and so much has changed and we've come so far.
Maisy keeps us on our toes - we've watched two films together this week. Marley and Me followed by Life of Pi...she looooves the animals...
Last weekend I bought a new car - brand brand new. I never thought I'd get another brand new car but work got me a brilliant discount (corporate perks!) and I now have built in maps, heated seats, cruise control, city steering
(which is pointless) and bluetooth! Spotify all the way! Sadly I've been grounded in the office at work due to so much paperwork to do and haven't had the chance to run it around too much....
Work..where do I begin! It's also been a year and the longest I've stayed in one place since 2013...I have said it before, but I will say it again, I LOVE it. The only thing that would make it better would be if they funded me through my next degree (Social Work) but I'm going to try for that next year. I've just been given my first Supervisee - which is great experience. I just love it. Being able to go out to someone's home, assess them and make suggestions and changes to better their lives is amazing.
Holibobs and Photogs...
This week I'm on Holiday and I have another wedding to photograph...this time, one of my best friends. Pressure! The hen party was hilarious so I'm expecting big things from the wedding... the Hen party was just made up of women, then we found a bath and THEN all these men walked past having got back from the races (so dressed up) and they launched themselves into the photo...priceless!
My Grandad moved into a nursing home on Tuesday after seven months in hospital... he has just gone from strength to strength in the home and is absolutely having the best time. Short of not being able to walk, everything is amazing...
And finally, that moment when the photographers stop being the photographers and use the photo-booth....first time ever!
