301 // 365
I had a lovely day planned; visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park in the morning, hair dyed in the afternoon… Which all fell through when I realised I had to wait in the house all afternoon (12 – 4) because a man was coming for the annual boiler service! So not only did I have to cancel all of my plans – I had to wait in the house for 4 hours with no working internet! :-O
I get a bit cabin feverish when I feel like I can’t leave, and today I was like a caged animal. It would have been better had I been able to take a photo in the morning, but with the promise of it clouding over (it was sunny in the morning) I knew I wanted to try and hold out to get to the woods and shoot a shot I’ve had in mind for months now. Besides, maybe the boiler man would come at 12…
I did the food shopping in the morning and then kind of paced around in the house until 3 when the boiler man arrived. By this time the weather forecast had changed to heavy rain at 4; so I was trying to mentally persuade him to hurry up. At 330 he was gone so I grabbed my pre-packed bag and tripod and drove to the woods at the bottom of the road. Drove. Somewhere which would have taken me about 5 minutes to walk. Lazy? Maybe, but it most certainly did look like rain.
At the woods I set up, giggling at how daft it all was and what on earth would I say if someone came across me, snapped the shots and at what I presume was exactly 4pm…. It started to rain. I quickly dragged down the rest of the props, packed up and dashed back to my car (wherein it is was 4:05).
So in the end, I got what I wanted once I knew I wasn’t going to see animals and dye my hair, but I feel like I’ve done nothing all day.
Plus I’ve had a headache all day 😦
