5th: home made. One of our first home made christmas decorations, made by Daniel at the church toddler group when he was a tot and Emily wasn’t even a spark in our eyes
7th: best time of day. In winter, the evening when you’re tucked up (in this case, in the King’s Head in lanchester, celebrating another fantastic report at parent’s evening) and the lights are just something special.
9th: snack. It’s nearly christmas, of course it’s got to be tiny clementines!
10th: breakfast. 1. These are oat and banana pancakes from Madeline Shaw’s Ready Steady Glow and they are YUMMY. 2. Lesson learned: check the day’s prompt earlier in the day, this is actually the only scrap left (they’re really filling or it would have been none left!) so had to scrape together all my composition skills to make it look half decent!

Back on track, with a #decemberphotoaday project called #sparktheseason. 1st: Lights
2nd: tradition. Had the Mice on Ice and advent tree since I was in school and now my kids love them!
3rd: Morning. Durham, on a cold and wintry morning with blinding low sun
4th: winter beauty. Winter stars.
An Emily for all seasons
Low winter sun, setting at 3pm
Ready for the start of the Christmas parade at #beamishmuseum this year… Singing Jingle Bells on the back of a vintage fire engine with Santa following behind! Kids loved every minute.
Homework time. Love Emmy’s tongue sticking out!
Yeah I’ve missed loads. More like #project234.
First snow of the year. Distracting myself from US election news.
