I missed last months Home life project and so this month I really wanted to work hard to get some good shots of our day. For April’s edition I decided to shoot our Saturday. We did have plans to go to a local farm (I was really looking forward to documenting that for the HLP), but its April and we live in the north-west of England, so obviously it rained all day long. Instead we decided on a relaxed morning at home followed by venturing out into our local town centre for a bit of shopping.
I planned on documenting our entire day, but for some reason (I suspect its something to do with age..) My camera is not dealing well with any low light situations at the minute. Over the course of the day I took around 200 photos, only eleven made the cut, all of which were before about 3pm, when the sky turned a dark shade of grey and nearly all natural light was gone.
Saturday 2nd April: Making the most of a rainy day.
It might not have been as much fun as going to snuggle newborn chicks for the day, but a trip into Lush – who were as fabulously accommodating with my girls, and their need to touch everything as they always are – followed by a stop off for cake at Patisserie Valerie wasn’t a bad way to spend the early afternoon at all.
