Where has the month gone? I can’t believe it’s March tomorrow. More importantly it’s pancake day today – what do you have on yours? We had blueberry pancakes (the thick scottish type – also known as drop scones) for breakfast and they were just yum. They were eaten too quickly for me to take any photographs.
Anyway – it’s nearly the start of lent. I don’t normally bother much with it but this year I need to try and cut down on my sugar
addiction habit to proactively help prevent an expanding waist line. I don’t really need chocolate and biscuits and cake every day, especially with the wee one being fully weaned. So … for lent 2017 I will be aiming to abstain from chocolate and cake. I will however work my way steadily through the hot cross buns in the kitchen cupboard in the interest of them not being wasted. I’ve decided they’re a bread instead.
I also like the idea that instead of (or in my case as well as) giving something up, you can do something good. Have a look at #do1nicething or #40acts for ideas. I think I’m going to support the Trussell Trust with their 40p for 40 days campaign and then duplicate it for my local Nightshelter. If you are donating – remember to giftaid!
Anyway – onto photographs. I’ve had a bit of a floral and scenery thing going on. Primroses, snowdrops, daffodils and two randoms that I’ve completely forgotten the name of. I love this time of year onwards as things begin to bloom. The crocuses are just about to appear and then it’s tulips and blossom and spring!
I was off work for two weeks for one reason or another so the bottom two in the set above are from when I was away and had a lovely walk round a reservoir near Edinburgh. The advantage of being away meant very few images like the one below.
Instead – when not looking for flowers or scenery it was the local wildlife (and their wooden counterparts).
Or images of new shoes and Sunday morning stories while daddy is still asleep.
I didn’t quite manage a photograph a day – 19 days, 14 images or thereabouts. There’s a couple I just want to check about before posting here as they’ve got friend and family children in them so I may update the post later. I wonder what march will bring? More frost as on the car this morning (it was stunning)?
