It's been months since I shared any Instagram images on here. It will never supersede blogging for me, but I enjoy it enormously, especially on those occasions when I don't have my "big" camera with me. People seem to use Instagram for all kinds of reasons - to promote a business, or to showcase their photography - but I like it most when people use it to make friends and share their hobbies and passions, and to capture and share the everyday in an instant way, and that's how I like to use it too.
So here are a few snippets of May:
Row one, feeling blue:
Sunset. Bowling. The tiled floor in the Natural History Museum. A heart in the clouds.
Row two, spring greens:
Quilt drying on the line. Children in a maze. A gate on the way to school. Sandals and daisies.
Row three, everyday life:
Making jam tarts. A messy kitchen. A good day for washing. A sunny spot.
Row four, looking downwards:
Pancakes for breakfast. Sketching. Cake break. Angus turns five.
And a few from June:
Row one, out and about:
I've been into Leeds three times this month, that's unheard of! Shopping, lunch, theatre, you name it, I've been gallivanting.
Row two, looking downwards:
Map garland. Cake and a new book. Drinks in a friend's garden one evening. The makings of a Victoria sponge.
Row three, heat seeking:
The view from the school playground one hot morning. The kid's playhouse. Garden shadows. Blue skies.
Row four. family life:
Before the theatre. After the theatre. The loom band obsession begins. Father's Day tray.
I'm here if you want to come and find me. I love finding blogging friends on Instagram. Come and say hello!
Thank you so much for all your recent comments. I feel like I've neglected this space a bit lately. Well, not neglected it, but I don't feel that I'm as "present" as I usually am, if that makes sense. Life is just too hectic at the moment, but it will soon settle down again and I'll have more time to be here, to think, to craft and to visit your blogs too.
