I am such a dork.
I bought helium to blow up balloons. kB was at first annoyed, then intregued, then came to accept that there will be a fairly large helium container in our house for the next couple of months.
Rather stupidly I’d forgotten to factor in the wind, and was too over-joyed with my floaty balloon to not go outside and shoot the shot I had dreamed up. So it turned out that for this shot I didn’t need helium at all, but whatevs. We had fun running around the field with a balloon.
Sometimes I do wonder how I got to be this cool at 28.
Do what makes you happy kids!
(Even if that is running around in your gym wear on a field surrounded by houses with your boyfriend, giggling and pulling a helium filled balloon behind you. Live. The Dream. :-P)
Of things that are fledged
Of things that flutter
I used to be really scared of butterflies. Then one day I decided to go to the butterfly house with my friend. And since that day I’ve been OK with them. Even if they land on me ^_^

Searching through the mist
Today it was misty. The mist kind of never went away, but it came back about tea time-ish. By this time I was in the peak district (countryside, so the mist is thicker) with my friend. This pleases me because I was wanting a shot in the mist the last time we had loads of smog, but I never made it out in it!

Day 16 / 16 – Photo in a different location every day challenge
Location 15: I have no idea what it’s called but it is part of the Trans Pennine Trail, UK
So, 16 days later and I managed to take a photo in 15 different places, weather being the only reason I didn’t make it to 16. The furthest away I ventured was my grandma’s house I think. She lives about 40 minutes away, most of these locations are really close to my house and for this I am grateful. I live in a great area for woodlands, parks and general nature-y stuff ^_^
I really wanted to do this my with bird cage rather than the lantern again, but I was going on my own and had enough to carry anyway without a massive birdcage. I was dubious about setting the smoke off, as I hadn’t realised how close these woods are to a golf course and I could hear some men talking, and see another man mowing the grass! It turns out that this smoke isn’t quite as bad as I’d anticipated, mainly because my only other experience with it was in a house where it was quite condensed. Glad that I eventually decided to bit the bullet and light it, though I am now out of smoke stuff until the other bath I ordered comes through the post.
Sadly though, day 16 also means that it is back to work tomorrow however there isn’t long to go until the next holiday!
I’ve also ordered a new prop which I am so so so excited about *flails arms about*.
