Where has the time gone?!?!! So what have we been up to…
On Monday I drove down to Stoke to photograph this little bundle of newborn loveliness


I had sooooo much fun.  It was my first newborn shoot and Jenny (the mom) was super sweet and I hope she enjoys the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.  I’m still in the middle of processing.  I had forgotten how teeny newborns are.  You should have seen the tiny little bum this one has!  Not like the big girl bum that comes my way after it goes potty!!

The rest of the week has been pretty boring.  Went to the library on Tuesday, which was good since we missed our normal Monday story time.  On Wednesday I didn’t do much of anything.  Thursday we went swimming and Squidge was sooo freaking good!  It was like we had our swim loving Squidge back!  I’ve been talking to her for 2 weeks about swimming and not crying and how when she cries water goes up her nose and she doesn’t like that and she needs to not cry and and AND!!!  And I think it finally worked!!  Thursday Wal went down to London for work and when he got back we went out for a curry.  Only thing was we had to wait until it got dark!  It made us laugh because Squidge associates going for a curry as something that only happens at night.  Not that we go out for curries much so I don’t know why that has stuck.  I wonder what would happen if we went to a different restaurant?  Hmm probably a lot of tears.

So that has been my week in a nutshell.  Hmmm did I forget anything?  Oh yes the bath is in. I repeat the BATH IS IN!  Well at least temporarily, we need to make some adjustments and then we can start tiling.  Oh, I am SOOOO looking forward to that- not!  I absolutely loathe DIY but Wal is happy puttering around so hey whatever as long as I sell this fecking place by the Summer. Oh I also sold all but one of my lenses (kept my 50mm) and have ordered a Nikon 24-85 f/2.8.  It wasn’t my first choice lens but at £1100 that lens was NEVER going to happen.  At least not yet.  The new lens should be arriving tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to it as it’s supposed to be a fantastic lens.  

Anyhoo enough of my boring jibber jabber- here are some random photos from the past week.

    I’m glad your fist baby shoot went well and even more so that the darn bath is now in.

    I had an outing this weekend where I just realised even more that I want to do photography on a professional basis. I need to make a plan.
