1st May 2017: Emily and I doing early morning colouring together

Allensford. This may have quickly become one of our favourite family places. Nothing flash, at all, just a lovely space for running around (or watching younger, more energetic, members of the family running around!) and BREATHING.

Is this a little woodland creature (at Allensford)?

So guess where we were today! Emily has wanted to go here for so long. We took a picnic but it was so windy and chilly we just ate it in the car; there are a surprisingly large number of picnics best eaten in the car around here! But it doesn’t take away from the experience, the sense of fun and adventure.

Dandelion-blowing

Me and my girl. This is in the woods around the Angel of the North.

Climbing trees

5th: A picture to cheer me up. Little flower girl in the garden yesterday.

15th: Daniel, proudly sitting behind the wheel of a Corvette Stingray at the car show (Chester-le-Street Riverside Park) yesterday! That cheered him up (he’s suffering badly with mouth ulcers and a nasty infection).

Emily at the splash pad at Riverside Park. You couldn’t call it a heatwave, by any stretch of the imagination, but there’s a definite feel in the air that summer is on its way.

26th: Emily at the window

Cartwheels in Grandma’s garden

Summery little girl!

One of the great things about working from home with your own business: Bailey’s in coffee for elevenses (or ten-ses). The credit for this stroke of genius has to go to my cousin Sarah, though.

28th: Capturing everyday detail – sleepy girl. I love capturing tiny details that may evoke a gut reaction, a lost memory, when we look at them in twenty years. Assuming the internet hasn’t imploded by then of course (must get prints made!)
