As promised, here’s what 2009 was looking like for me..!
It was a white December (!) which is pretty exciting here (or at least, I think it is!). We don’t get snow that frequently, and often it’s so thin you may as well call it ice, but in 2009 it was thick enough to prance about it and go out to shoot photos especially! Steve took Caroline and myself out for a spot of photography…
A rather tiny Barnabee was excited and confused to discover snow. His favourite game was chasing the water as it dripped off of the trees when the snow was melting. That gorgeous dog enjoying the snow belongs to my mum’s neighbour – isn’t she adorable?!
In the lead up to Christmas, I was working at the Natural History Museum, decorating presents for my FSPASG secret santa, Maria, watching Rumford Morris and going to see the fabulous St Agnes Fountain…
As well as coming to terms with the concept of snow, Barnabee was exploring everything he could, including Squirrel’s patch of the garden, and the Christmas tree. He was also getting used to being photographed constantly and being involved in lots of my daily self-portraits!
Speaking of which, I was in my second year of my self-portrait project, and still enjoying doing crazy things with make-up and candles… Sounds pretty similar to now, doesn’t it?
I also got to spend time with some of my favourite ladies, including the lovelies Caroline and Avalon. I was lucky enough to dance about in the snow with Avalon just as it started falling, and I performed at a barn dance with Caroline, as well as seeing in 2010 with her and some lovely bubbly..!
Phew! 2009 was a pretty awesome year, all round. Hope you guys are having a grand week so far… And have you realised, it’s only 17 days until Christmas day itself?! Ahhh!
