This is my personal project and one that is very close to my heart: Photographing one whole day in my life, it began a couple of years ago on Monday Jan 1, 2018 when I did 1 day a week but now I am in my third year and am only doing them on every full moon. I hope you enjoy following along!
What an incredible day we had!! It was a day of beautiful adventures and our first proper bike ride in the forest just the three of us. We had an amazing home ed meet-up in the woods and did a lot of exploring and hanging out with friends. It was pretty much the perfect day.
Nixie had forest school which meant me and daddy got to have some one on one time with Forrest. We ended up going on a beautiful walk amongst the heath-land and once Nixie was back with us we ended up having an impromptu play in one of the streams while we released some more of our frogs.
This was a beautiful day. We had a relaxed day at home working on projects and then we headed for an evening adventure where everyone got covered in the smelliest of mud! This is also my entry for Artefact Motherhood a project shared with other international female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words.
This marks the first entry for year three! This time I'm doing them every full moon and this day of the full moon was an emotional one but a day where so many memories were made. Both happy ones and sad ones. We spent time in the forest and had magical experiences but Forrest also got hurt which shook us up (luckily he was OK) but we also spent a beautiful evening by the sea.
As soon as I got back you were ready with your basket. We were on a mission to pick dandelions so that we could make some dandelion bread. We thought the idea of making bread with dandelions was very exciting and so did others who we passed on our walk who were intrigued by our basket full of dandelions.
We decided to go on a walk to our little beach and you wanted to ride your bike...You had always said you weren't going to take your stabilisers off until you are all grown up, until you are twenty but for some amazing reason you wanted to try without them and you did amazingly!! It made me all emotional, and the tears began to flow.
We're on our second week of lock down and we're really missing the forest. We stopped going there last Thu and haven’t left the house at all since then. The sunny weather makes me feel so restless but we’ve been spending time in our tiny garden getting it ready for all of our seedlings that will soon be ready to go outside.
Things seem to be changing so fast in our world at the moment and everything is feeling more and more surreal. Since last week things have escalated so quickly with this whole coronavirus epidemic....We headed to our special place in the woods today, it’s our magic place and always makes everything better...
Nixie, you were poorly yesterday and we weren't sure if we were going to take you to forest school but you seemed much better this morning so we decided to take you. Forrest, you on the other hand was still pretty poorly, we started off the morning with trying to get you to breathe in some oils that we had put on a tissue to help you clear your chest a little but you just thought we were being strange.
