My new photo diary.

This week has been a great week. 

It started off with very very exciting news of the unveiling of Attic 24 new venture.  For several years I have followed Luce's blog and not only admired her incredible work but also loved her photography.  Now I get to stay in The Woolly Sheep Inn but I can take my own photographs of Skipton for myself.

This excitement has spurred me into wanting to resurrect my love of photography as I am taking my faithful 35mm Canon camera with me with just a standard 50mm lens on. So I have decided to start photographing everyday things around me again in the hope I can do Yarndale trip and other adventures justice rather than just using my ipad and phone camera to make a blog.

So here is what happened this week....

I decided that it is lovely to try and have fresh flowers in the house where possible and put to good use the vessel we found on our trip last year to Preston-on-Wye.

Next my son is an incredible book worm once he finds books he enjoys and has read a 300 page book in a day and half.  His current favourite author is Robert Muchamore.

Along with reading and many many other hobbies Harry loves to cook.  He is entering the Scout cooking competition again this year and has started his 12 week term at school learning cooking.  So Penny (the resident cook in our house) decided to teach him how to make Spaghetti Bolognise, it was so lovely seeing them working together and can not wait to taste the end result.

On the knitting front I am making a shawl using Easy Knits Yarn I love the variety of colours he produces.

Finally I can not go without showing the beautiful Indie and bless tired Willow.  We have a local butchers we use for all our meat buying and it is win win as it is locally sourced free range meat and they give away the bones for free which Indie loves.

Then the final part of excitement was Danielle aka "A Stash Addict" posted answers I gave for her blog today My interview unfortunately I sent her the wrong link to my shawl design but she is kindly going to amend but here it is incase you would like it Shawl design.

Now I am off to watch son play football then get to do more knitting and read The Knitter Issue 53 which is great on many levels as it has a pattern by Kaffee Fassett shows Jeni from Fyberspates at work in Peru and features many lovely designs.  Not only that but Penny does not "do" magazines so for her to buy me one was very special.

The break is over.

Looking back on my blog my last entry was October, so a long break of 6 months!

A dear friend suggested I get back into blogging. I was unsure as I am a private person and wondered whether too.

So over the past week I have been going through the reading list of people I follow and really enjoy the ability to read and view image's.

I started this blog as a type of diary to be able to look back. I am definately not they tyle of person to do a "visual" blog and admire people who can sit in front of a camera and do that and I do so love to watch. So from the safety net of words and picture's I will share my love of photography, which is all done on my phone. My passion for knitting, my garden and what ever else I want to record for "safe keeping ".

So if you have a spare bit of time please do enjoy with me and let me know what you think.

I'm kicking off the blog with some of the trips I have had.

My first trip out was in Decmeber to my special place Slimbri…

Trip to Tewkesbury

This morning I woke to this poignant message having being sent to me by a good friend. I was unsure what to do with my day as I had no plans and the weather was set to be nice. 
So I decided to heed the advice and set off to Tewkesbury. 
On Friday I had treated myself to a nice new pair of walking shoes so this would be a great first outing for them.

Not even five minutes into my walk I spotted this beautiful Bluebells.

My first stop was a place called Lower Lode, Tewkesbury  you come down to the River Severn and the viewing point looks over to the 13th Century B&B/pup/campsite which was very popular today.

I decided to sit and people watch and listen to the bird's singing for 5 minutes whilst knitting a little of my new sock.

I then headed back the same way and walked across the park with the majestic Tewkesbury Abbey as the backdrop .

Here I sat for a little longer and listened to the bell ringing and watched as a coach load of visitors from Nottingham came to look around t…

Road to happiness photo session.

I live in the cotswold town of Cheltenham.  It is a very multi cultural town with some great area's for photography.

Today I decided to cycle along a route called the Honeybourne line which is an old disused railway line.

In 2017 #cheltenhampaintfestival create an amazing event that meant many area's were painted by incredible street artists.

One of who was done by Vanesa Long Champ an incredible artist based in London who has travelled widely.

Inspired hughly by Laine magazine I took photographs of my newly completed garment which I have called Road to Happiness.  One is a short sleeve top and the other is a love sleeve jumper. 

The garment is a boxy style comprising of lace, cables and moss stitch. I love the garment so much I will be making another and am going to design socks, cowl and wrap to complete the design idea's. 

Please do enjoy the picture's .
