The weekend was warm, busy and a little intense
we found a place to live in Hastings – the first place we saw!
It has beautiful bay windows and original fireplaces,
I’m now dreaming of decorating it with all of our things
and cycling to work on the seafront.
Zissou is going to love the views of the park with all of the moorhens
Four weeks to go!
In the first few weeks of May I’ve snoozed on pebbled beaches,
had days out with friends,
somehow managed to avoid getting sunburn,
(or a tan for that matter)
and Illustrating little things I wouldn’t normally for my new job (!!!)
Its nice to be branching out and challenging myself
I can’t believe we’re already pretty much halfway through February…
The first week or so was spent finishing up an illustration commission and hanging out with my little shadow:
We also visited Nymans Gardens & Brighton over the weekend. We go to Lucky Beach for breakfast almost every time and it never fails so disappoint:
Also, yep, I’ve changed the name of this blog. I’m in the middle of designing my portfolio website and wanted to separate this out a bit. Nothings final in terms of platform yet, but the name definitely is!
Some moments from the past week.
Next week is the end of my month of daily photos. I’ve enjoyed it, so I think I might just carry on… but instead of doing weekly blog posts, I’ll make one a month with my favourites.
Can you tell it’s really dark in Suffolk right now? Feeling very lethargic at the moment and am boiling down to not having enough sunlight. I think my lethargy is probably showing through in my photos. There’s just no inspiration around right now!
On a more positive note, I’ve picked up my laptop and am getting back in to learning web design again, I’ve got two illustration commissions to complete and I’ve just bought myself a weekly planner to get my bum in gear. I tried using a bullet journal last year and found I just got too caught up in trying to make it look pretty, rather than actually completing anything on my to do lists. I do still love the concept of them, but for me a planner/diary with pre set out pages is the way to go! If anyone has any tips on how to keep on track when it comes to aspirations for the year, please say hello!
A throwback to warmer days – take me back to Dunwich beach in August…
This month I’m trying to take a photo a day and use the “panoramic”/multiple photo option on my instagram. These are from the first week (the first two are in my last post). I have to say though, I’m already getting tired of the multiple photo thing. I think it can look really interesting if done every now and again, but every day is a bit… boring?
My aim is to follow a monthly themed daily photo challenge on instagram for as many months as I can, with weekly updates here on the blog.
What kinds of monthly themes would you like to see?
