Here's a round-up of my August photo-a-day challenge results! I found this much easier and more enjoyable than the 30-Day Self-Portrait Challenge. That is largely down to the fact that none of the photos had to be of myself, so I wasn't thrown out of my comfort zone quite as much. It was still challenging to remember and find time every day, but I loved the treasure-hunt element that the prompts bring. I used the Fat Mum Slim prompt list, there is a new one every month and I recommend giving it a try.
1. Something beginning with N
A magnetic Cath Kidson notepad that my friend bought for my birthday.
My bathroom decor (so far).
I was unable to catch one on the 3rd, but here's one I snapped later in the month.
Basil. Smells and tastes amazing.
When the light peers through the blinds but you aren't ready to let it in.
6. This means a lot to me
I only had a few years with one of my Grandads. This key ring is very special to me because it used to belong to him and it has a photo of a young me inside it.
7. A sign
9. 2 o'clock
Sometimes this is exactly what I need. Often, in fact.
11. I love doing this!
Eating Almonds! I've actually become pretty hooked on them.
Nothing is as fast as time sometimes.
15. The best
...things in life are free.
Making a sandwich was the closest I came on the 16th.
18. Someone you spoke to today
Quickly snapped post-rehearsal.
An outfit for a slow day.
22. A room
Post cake party.
24. In the background
On the 24th I was at a hen party, the bride is in the background.
Window gardens along the Thames on the Southbank.
27. 10 minutes from home
My parents live about 10 minutes away from my house, I called over for a few hours and made a crumble with the blackberries from their garden. It was delicious.
Taken after my first ever attempt at acting for audio. I hope it turns out sounding OK!
Photos from Glastonbury Festival 2005. Our party were very lucky that this flooding didn't travel another few metres.
If you follow the blog, you may have noticed I love Wigan Athletic. I loved even more knowing they beat the local team last weekend! I'm looking forward to travelling up to Wigan this weekend to see family.
August was a pretty relaxing month for me, I hope you found some moments to cherish too.
