#BWphotoproject – Escalators

  

These are the escalators in Birmingham New Street station. And for some reason on my way home from BlogCamp I thought the would look amazing in Black and White. So I snapped this picture when I got to bottom and I must agree I like it. 

What do you think?

#Project365 – Week 15

This week has been the start of half term and although I have tired to stay busy with the kids. I haven’t always remembered to take snaps of what we have been up to.

But here is my week minus a few really awesome pictures I wish I had taken. 

Day 96 

 Here is Baby, enjoying the sun and her first time on a trampoline. She isn’t normally in just a vest but in the midday sun it was really warm. I must say I love his the static has affected her hair, she looks so cute!

Day 97 

This was my attempt at a healthy breakfast after to chocolate fest that was Easter Sunday. I know it’s not really healthy but it has fruit in it. 

Day 98 

Tuesday I thought I would share how amazed I was that baby could sleep in such I weird positions on a regular basis. I know this is all part and parcel on her low muscle tone, which cause hypermobility, which is part of her Down syndrome but it’s still amazing watching her do the splits or sleep hugging her legs etc. 

What do you think? 

Day 99 

I love flowers and I buy myself a bunch every week when I do the shopping, just because they make me happy  and my house smell lovely. Plus they are amazing to snap a quick photo of, if I’m in a pinch and need a bit of inspiration. 

Day 100 

The boys wanted to go camping but because it was short notice, I don’t drive and it was after 6pm, they had to settle for a night of sleeping with me in a tent in the garden. 

I only agreed because I thought they would give up and say they wanted to go inside after a hour or so. But they didn’t and they adored the whole night and slept outside on the hard ground, much to my dismay. I coped by dreaming of my bed.

Day 101 

 I realise I take far too many pictures of food but this one was actually for #snaphappybritmums and it’s #betterwithcake prompt. I know it’s not cake but it had to do.

Day 102 

Here is Baby enjoying her first trip out on her sisters hand me down smart trike. I would have brought her, her own but E is much happier with her peddle bike which means I can save money and they both can enjoy the fun.

So that’s my week, how was yours?

#MySundayPhoto 5/4/15

  

While the girls and I were out wild daffodil picking on Thursday afternoon. We found this really cute little garden that had its own little beck running through it and a little bridge. It was surrounded by flowers and trees.

It was magical!

I loved it

#Project365 – week 14 

Day 89 

On Sunday we finally saw the sung or the first time in ages. So we put on our wellies and went for play at the park p, bumping into some friends on the way. The kids had great fun.

Day 90  

 We got invited back to Brewers Fayre at Old Brickworks. So I invited my mum along. Sadly the boys were still at school and hadn’t broke up yet. It was just Me, Grandma, E and Baby. As you can tell we had fun 🙂 

Day 91 

The hubby lovely treated me to a rather big breakfast in bed! It wasn’t even my birthday or Mother’s Day. It was just because he loves me.

Day 92 

The hubby was sulking a little because he tired to April fools me but I didn’t fall for it. What can I say I’m use to him being a fool so I wasn’t going to fall for it.  

Day 93 

It was another beautiful day and I spotted some daisies growing in the field next to the park. I hade to get a snap of them because I love daisies ❤️. They always make me think of my childhood and long summer days sitting in the garden making daisy chains. 

Day 94 

 I decided to get in the Easter mood for my #snaphappybritmums photo. The prompt was “hat”. So I thought a selfie wearing Baby’s rabbit hat would be prefect. 

Day 95 

 Another selfie I know but it’s not often me and the hubby manage to get a snap together. And I have to say I really love this picture. 

So there’s my week in pictures. 

I hope you will let me know what you think in the comments.

#BWphotoproject, #MySundayPhoto 29/3/15

I saw this tree when I was out with the children. I found it fascinating and had to take a quick snap.

I knew the instant I saw the tree it would look amazing when I tried some different colour effects on it

I loved the way all the branches hung and how the tree trunk bent and twisted.

I thought it looked amazing, but I was really surprised how dark the sky went with the black and white effect. It made is look very eerie but still really  beautiful. 

This is why this is my #BWphotoproject and #MySundayPhoto.

#Project365 – Week 13

We haven’t done very much this week as I haven’t been at my best and now the kids are ill too. But here’s my week 13. 

Day 81

On Sunday we went to the Sunshine and Smiles World Down syndrome celebration. It was a great day and they had Singing Hands perform which was amazing too. I must say I was rather star struck when they tried talking to me and Baby and just didn’t know what to say. 

Day 82

My kids completely adore Lego and where so happy that these cane in the post while they were at school. 

Day 83

On Tuesday while I snapped this pretty cool picture of the clouds and the way the sun was shine and light them all up. I though it was beautiful. The amazing little things you see while on the school run. 

Day 84

I went into to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed and while I was waiting to go down the theatre I thought I would share my sexy hospital stockings. 

Day 85

They said I should expect some swelling and bruising but I was shocked at how much my face has swelled up. They did explain that they had complications removing my bottom 2 wisdom teeth and had to actually chip away some of my jaw bone. It’s safe to say I look like a character from a beano comic. 

Day 86

We received this beautiful personalised apron for Baby from Isabella Peters in honour of World Down Syndrome week. I was so blown away when she offered to send Baby something and I must say it’s absolutely gorgeous and I am completely in love. 

Day 87

Last night I was tagged in a #widn post on Instagram. So I thought I would share my diet of the week. Soup! My face is really swollen and sore so eating isn’t easy, then add the stitches and I have no plans to be trying to chew anything for a while yet.

Day 88

The boys decided to build a Den/fort in their bedroom. I must say I’m rather impressed as they have done it all on their own. I had told them, if their really well behaved they can leave it up and both sleep inside it tonight.

So there you go that’s my week in pictures.  

How’s your week been?
