One Little Word | Pause – May and June 2020

It's only now, at the back end of July, that I've completed May and June's Pause pages. For May, I chose to record my birthday selfie - complete with a make up-free face and a nasty stye. I couldn't decide on patterned paper, so opted to go without. I blew the dust of a few … Continue reading One Little Word | Pause – May and June 2020

The Three of Us, Two Dogs and One Sister-in-Law | Photo Heavy

Since the easing of lockdown began a few weeks ago, we have been meeting up with my lovely sister-in-law weekly to walk our dogs together in the countryside near where she lives. We choose a route through the woods and around farmers' fields which keeps us away from other people. Not that we're anti-sociable, or … Continue reading The Three of Us, Two Dogs and One Sister-in-Law | Photo Heavy
