Linky Lovin' Friday {20th February 2015} | Reading

Yesterday we had a lazy day. We stayed in our PJs for most of it, ate toast, watched TV, played the devices and had pancakes for dinner. It was really lovely to spend the day doing nothing and just hanging out. Not having to be anywhere, do anything.  I think the girls enjoyed the unlimited freedom to just be, to watch TV, to play in Punky's room. I think we need to do it more often!

On Saturday my sister and I are taking the girls to search for fairies at the Botanic Gardens. Punky is super excited and has been asking me "Is is Saturday today?" all week. I'm excited to have my sister along for the ride so I'll have a chance to take some pictures with the big camera, seeing as we'll be using my iPhone to track those fairies down.

Everyone I know who's taken their kids has had a great time so I think it will be good. I'm going to make some more pancakes tonight to take for snacks and after we've found all the fairies we're planning on having a nice lunch somewhere. Dave is on night shift so I'm sure he'll be happy to have us out of the house so he can sleep in peace!

Once again I haven't had a huge amount of time for leisure reading, but I think I have to get used to that. Tafe has really ramped up this week, we've got the details of our first proper assignment and we really jumped in to the technical side of studio lighting and ratios. I've been thinking a lot about my 5 year plan that we have to present at the end of the course and I've got a few big ideas brewing. One of them, if I find the guts to actually apply and be accepted will see me even more busy with photography work and I'm super excited. I just have to find the nerve to actually hit send ont he application!

I know that's really cryptic, but I will definitely share more about it later once I figure out the logistics and if it will actually work! But for now, I'll leave you with my favourite links of the week...

Google Boss warns of 'forgotten century' with email and photos at risk via The Guardian
This was a really interesting read and something I'm going to keep in mind moving forward.

I photographed my children at all the wrong times via Scary Mommy
I can totally relate to this, and it's why I tend to take a lot of photos of the girls around the house, just doing everyday things. I don't share a lot of those on the blog, but I'm thinking I really need to do a bit of a photographic Day in the Life style project that I can have printed in to a little book for each girl.

The Secret Diary of an Australian Threenager by Toilets Aren't for Turtles (Mumma McD Blogs)
Sometimes you read something and it's like the person writing it has crawled in to your brain and pulled the words straight from it. Either that or Mumma McD is actually the weirdo I was pretty sure was living in our roof and stealing our teaspoons back in 2012. Either way, she absolutely nails this post, and it made me feel so much better reading it. Maybe I'm not just a shit parent and it's actually just 3 year olds in general!

10 photography "mistakes" I made when just starting out by Lacey Meyers
Another photography related post, I know I have made every "mistake" on this list and then some!

Dear ABC by Essentially Jess
Loved this post from Jess on Tuesday. And I totally agree, bloody Norman would totally be in juvie by now if he was a real child!

So that's my reading list for the week. Make sure you take notes because I'll be asking questions about them next week. Haha, only kidding.

Or maybe I'm not?!

Have you read anything awesome this week? Hit me up with your pick of the links in the comments and anything else awesome that you've seen around the web this week.

  1. I am intrigued by your application. Life can be busy once you're studying. Loved Jess's post and yes to taking photos of my kids at the wrong time, that really hit home with me. Have a great weekend x

  3. Apply apply apply! Have no regrets! I haven't had time to read much hence why I now have a dreaded cold because I think I've dug myself into the ground. Love days of doing nothing. I think we're set to have a few of those in a row from today considering this weather...but I do love the rain. Oh fairies, love little fairies.

    I say hit send on that application otherwise you'll always wonder "what if?". Jess's ABC post was one of my favourites this month. I'm with you on Norman Price - juvie or military school should be his only options.
