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!
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.
We left the house just before 9:00 and we arrived early enough at the station to hop on the train when it goes to Lymington pier and back and the two of you had lots of fun running around. Once we got to brockenhurst we changed trains and about 15 min later we arrived at our destination: Christchurch
I had a shower and when I was standing in front of the mirror you were fascinated by my lopsided boobs and wouldn't stop jiggling the bigger one! It's a good three or four times bigger. You said, "it was like a trampoline. And so fat and big!" When we came downstairs you surprised me by wanting some boob and Forrest wasn't impressed!
It took us about two hours to arrive, daddy had already booked parking at at a hotel in kensington which made it super easy and then we walked for about 20 min or so to the natural history museum. Forrest you fell asleep right as we arrived and slept through our whole tour of the dinosaurs which you, Nixie, really loved...
I looked up into the tree and saw a lone crow staring back at me. I have always loved crows and got really happy and took a few steps closer and looked into her eyes and invited her to come down to us, I even said to you Nixie how I wished she would just come down and say hi to us! And I kid you not about 10 seconds later that is exactly what she did (you insisted this crow was a she)! You had some crumbs in your hands from Forrest's biscotti which the crow loved, she was even eating directly out of your hands!
It’s our third year coming to Stonehenge for the Solstice and there’s always such a magical feeling in the air walking towards them in the dark. I had goosebumps and felt a little emotional, I felt a deep sense of peace and was surrounded by such beautiful energies. When we arrived at the stones we laid out our blanket and had a little picnic.
