Taking a break from my usual psycho-waffle, I’ve joined this awesome little circle, whereby on the 10th of each month we each post 10 photos of anything we like- life as it is for that month. When I’m not banging on about green thinking and hanging out on beanbags with kidlets, I love taking photos. I have an unhealthy love for Instagram, but damn work gets in the way of me becoming fully obsessive. I’m still learning (A LOT! Gosh I take some shockers!), but it’s just so good to have something that’s for me, you know? It’s important for all of us to have something we like to do, something that’s just for us. You know, outside of being all the other roles we have to be for others. We have to do something for us and put ourselves first at times (oh yeah I have a whole post about that coming up!) But without further ado, please indulge me as I take you through just a typical afternoon in our ‘hood.
10 on 10 March
It was a bit of a slow moving weekend. With the exception of #parentsgonewild at Soundwave. Well, as wild as one can get when pregnant! So I totes got down with my water and rocked out. It was a sight to behold.
The day before though we headed to the park to run off some steam. It’s a nice small one down the road, easy to trek to. It’s usually quiet and empty. But of course it was busy when we headed down. And so taking pictures without looking like that creepy stage Mom all over her children’s shit, or trying to avoid accidentally snapping other kids in the picture and then looking like a creepy stalker was a mission. I could’ve just said I was a psych and gotten away with it. We’re pretty messed up.
Miss DP of course takes after her Mama and cares not for rules or regulations. In some aspects, but then hates getting in trouble. It’s a conundrum. I’m pretty sure this isn’t a mountain climbing set-up, honey.
But she climbed like a monkey anyway.
Miss SP and her expressions. All splashed across her face. I see an Oscar in her future. I’m sure someone wasn’t following the rules here. She’s such a policewoman!
While one lass is demure, the other is a firecracker, taking to every piece of play equipment like a bat out of hell.
Seriously. They kill me with the cute.
Best of friends, trying to herd poor Brucey. He has grey hairs for a reason.
We live in this pocket of town that is so leafy and filled with creatures galore. It feels like we’re stuck in a nature documentary sometimes.
And although we’ve seen the sun go down on summer, some of the pretty flowers are still holding on.
Thanks for indulging me. Do you have a little hobby you love to dabble in? If you’re enjoying checking out some pictures, then go check out the rest of the lovely ladies in the 10 on 10 circle. They’re a bit of alright. Follow along to Ellen over at Potential Psychology, and you’ll get taken through all the group by clicking through. Mucho fun!
