5 things that annoy me {way more than they should!} | IBOT

So I had a post all ready to go for today, but then it fell through and I had to scramble at the last minute. I have a few posts in the works, but they still need images and finishing touches, so I decided to go with something completely trivial. Sometimes we all need a little banal ranting to blow off steam every now and then...

There are 5 things that have been annoying me lately, more than they should. So I thought I'd list them for you today...

Twenty-Six to Thirty {52 week project} | IBOT

Some of you may know that I've been working on some personal 52 week projects in 2016. The basic idea is that you take a photo a week. You can have a theme for the year, a theme for each week, or a subject that you photograph weekly for a year.

Last year I completed two 52 week projects, one for each of the girls. This year I decided to up my game a bit, and not only do a 52 week project for each of the girls, but to also do a Sisters 52 week project, as well as one that was just for me. I'm a member of a really great photography forum, Clickin' Moms, and this year I'm playing along with their guided 52 week project. Basically what that means, is that our leader, the wonderful Sue Bahen gives us a different brief to shoot each week.

Psychosomatic {addict insane!} | IBOT

It all started on Saturday evening when I noticed some gunk on Punky's eye. I didn't think much of it as I wiped it away. Until she woke up on Sunday with her eye practically crusted shut. A trip to the Doctor's yesterday confirmed what I'd been dreading. Conjunctivitis.

Now, every time I think about it my eyes start to water and feel itchy. When I have to clean Punky's eye or put the drops in, my eyes feel scratchy in sympathy and I'm convinced I'm going to wake up tomorrow morning with my own eyes crusted together.

Happy Anniversary {to the craziest man I know} | #IBOT

Today is a very special day, although if you were spying on my house you wouldn't know it.

Today is mine and Dave's anniversary. Not only is it the anniversary of the day we started going out, but it's also the anniversary of the day we got married.

Proving that he's not just a pretty face, when we first talked about getting married we decided that we should do it on our existing anniversary. That way we wouldn't have to remember another date.

Smart man!

Happy Birthday #IBOT {I blog on Tuesdays} | IBOT

Hello and welcome to the 5th birthday instalment of IBOT!

In case you missed it last week, the lovely Essentially Jess has entrusted me to look after her baby for a while so she can take a well deserved break. So between now and the end of the year I pledge to do my best to be the hostess with the mostess, and make sure IBOT continues to be the amazing community that Jess built.

What happens when you die {according to my 4-year-old} | Life

The other day the girls and I were in the car when Punky suddenly said from the back seat

"Mummy, people don't like dying."

I was a bit surprised by this conversational tidbit, as we hadn't been talking about death or anything even remotely close to it. So I asked her why she thought people didn't like dying.

"Because they are hurt."

That sounded like a fairly logical conclusion for a four-year-old to come to, so I asked her if she knew what happens when a person dies.

"You fall down, and then someone has to pick you up and put you in bed, and then you need a magical kiss."

Twenty-Four & Twenty-Five {2016 52 week project} | Photography

 {Twenty-Four - Sisters} They love it when the moon is out early and Daddy is home so he can pull out the telescope. They haven't quite figured out how to use it (Punky can sometimes manage to get close enough without bumping it to glimpse the moon) but it doesn't matter, just hearing Zee call it a "skelloscope" is enough reason to bring it out!
