1. Edit heaven
Or not...depending on how you look at it. With my book launch date creeping ever closer (I get the cover proofs this week, eek!) I have been reading and rereading my manuscript to make sure that I have all my bases covered. This has caused lots of stress and headaches on my part, especially when I start tweaking and pulling little bits apart. It's never that straightforward and I ended up rewriting the entire ending. Although my faithful test readers assured me it only made the storyline better. Here's hoping.
2. All the cuddles
On Wednesday we went to Rufford Old Hall and met up with the lovely Lisa from Hollybobbs and her two children. After we had said our goodbyes, Eli wanted to go for a walk, which we did but he didn't actually want to do much walking as he preferred to just clutch my legs and offer me lots of cuddles. He's not always the most tactile child (hugs and kisses have to be on his terms) so I made the most of them whilst they were on offer.
3. Spring flowers
I joined in with #capturingcolour for the first time this week and it was all about lovely spring blooms which gave me the ideal opportunity to test out the zoom on my new camera. I had to get right on the floor to get this shot but I love it. Something a little bit different for me.
4. Three musketeers
I captured this shot yesterday when we went for a day out at Brockholes Nature Reserve and I absolutely love it. The lighting, the setting...just everything.
This is also one from yesterday. Part of what I like is that there is a whole story behind the capture although obviously you don't know it from just the image. There was a massive (and I mean massive) upturned tree and the roots were standing about 10ft in the air. Meg scaled them and balanced herself precariously then leant down to let me take this picture. James was up next to her, all in a dither that she was going to topple sideways but she is so fearless...we had to stop her from going any further!
6. Rose-shaped goodies
Is it cheating to use a shot from today? I was inspired to make these after seeing a video doing the rounds on Facebook. You can see the original on my Facebook page here. Out of 6 we managed to get 2 or 3 decent ones but I think we've cracked it now and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. They taste yummy too.
Those are my favourite shots. Come join me on Instagram if you want to see more from this week.
