I really dropped the ball on the photo a day challenge these past two months but after completing the first quarter, I was determined to keep it up.

So with some photo taking bursts here and some pinching from the archives there, I’ve managed to complete April.

When I get behind I don’t bother sending to Instagram, instead just uploading straight to flickr.

And such is the case with May, except I’m doing the up-to-date prompts on Instagram and catching up via flickr.

Another rush to the finish, completing the final week in one day, and then waiting another two days to take the last shot, and then realising I didn’t post the 30th.

But another month done, curse those odd-numbered months!

I blog, therefore I am

aboutme

life // about me

I thought it was a little overdue, a bit cart before the horse, to launch the more personal side the blog here and neglect to properly introduce myself.

Prompted by the “about me” prompt at the #fmsphotoaday challenge, I thought I would elaborate on my pictorial contribution, pictured top left, and tell you a little more about me.

So, on the image above:

  •  I like the colour lime, photography and cooking, and eating
  •  I like stationery and writing.
  • I’m an only child.
  • I am addicted to Snapseed and its Retrolux filters.
  • And I have this great big piece of ticking fabric for no apparent reason.
  • Married to a wonderful bloke who is very supportive of everything I do and happily joins in on any adventure
  • I work in the media.

Also:

  • I have two sons ~ aged 10 turning 11 and 8 turning 9. They are actually only 18 months apart, this is both good and bad.
  • I work full-time, in newspapers. When I’m not there, I’m here at Lime Lane or working with my other hat on as part of our freelancing company.
  • The ticking fabric is a mystery because I don’t sew, not a stitch. Thankfully the Mr can do buttons.
  • I’m more than happy with my own company, I’m a classic introvert and happily would spend the week at home with no place to go.

Feel free to introduce yourself in the comments and tell me a little bit about you!

After many a false start last year, I’ve actually managed to complete the photo a day challenge for January, which has spurred me on for the rest of the year.

Looking forward to having a year full of snippets.
