It's so true! This time the photography mission was aimed at my Belle and my niece and nephew in aid of lighting up the dark days of their Great Nan. Nanna Bet has ...get this...Tuberculosis (and not Pneumonia after all). What is that all about? One had thought it had been eradicated in the 60's but no. Thanks to illegal immigrants the disease is back and preying on the elderly. So off we went to my local park to take pics of the kids in this blistering heat (and that was at 1900hrs!). Daniel was loving it and asking me if I preferred "this pose" or "shall I climb this tree, auntie Kirsty?". I loved his keen eye for composition - the kid is a natural.
Even Belle was up for climbing little trees..... bonkers or what? The kids really wanted to delight their great nan and were so good for me but I think the main attraction was, of course, the park. Im absolutely overjoyed that both photo sessions this week have been good fun plus it was so good to get out of the house - its stifling with the heat and there is not a drop of breezy breeziness.
As well as a good night shooting, it was Belle's sports afternoon today. She didn't compete as this year all the heats were running races - egg and spoon, backwards race, hopping, skipping etc. There was no way I was letting Ellie be humiliated and although the teachers knew that they had to include her I bit the bullet and asked for her to be involved somehow (my heart was breaking inside) So they gave her the first aid job with Mrs Atherton and Ellie truly thought she was a nurse. She attended to 8 injuries but still swears that she will be a massuese when she is older. She so delicately puts that nurses are are Doctors slaves!
I hope you give your mother freebie indian head massages Ellie or else!
