Before returning back to walk, I had a sunset walk in the woods not too far from where I live. I had assumed the bluebells might be out, as they are out in my garden, and it was a lovely sunny day.
What a nice end to a great week off!
Yesterday was mine and kB’s 10 year anniversary. Mr Snooty Fox was one of the little presents he got me. Because I do indeed love foxes.

This year I started off purple. Then I let it fade back to blue. Then I spend a few months between being blue and purple. I decided to fade it out and go pastel purple. So I ended up green. Then after a few failed bleaching attempts I decided the blue/green wasn’t coming out so I went dark red. I did not like dark red (despite being dark red for years!). In order to make myself feel a bit better about the red I decided to bleach the ends out and put a brighter red on them. In the process of bleaching the ends they went…. Pastel pink. Which I loved! I was a bit shocked that it went that way.
So I bleached my whole head, and was pastel pink / purple for a while. There were still blue-y undertones though. When I went on holiday the sun bleached the purple out, leaving it grey. Which I *really* liked. But it only did this to the top, so underneath it was purple and greeny. So then I decided on Monday to bleach it all again, originally with the intention of going a very pastel pink (which I hated, so I bleach it again). And now here I am with blonde/silver hair.
AND I LOVE IT.
Whoever thought after all these years of being weird colours, I would end up blonde!
Disclaimer: If you plan on bleaching your hair, I would advice you use coconut oil. It does wonders to protect it from damage!

I have decided to put a bit more effort in for August whilst I am off work. I really enjoyed taking photos when I was on holiday, so I think I am trying to do too much on an average day with work, exercise and taking a photo every day. Seeing as I’m not at work until Sep this means I can work on the photos a bit more.
I’m going to try to get out and visit different places when I can, and shoot a variety of things. That is the plan anyway, it obviously depends on the weather and other commitments (like festivals!)
Today was the first day in a while that I fancied actually taking a photo. I’ve been shooting every day (obviously) but since being ill/grandad passing away my heart hasn’t really been in it.
This morning in a last attempt to spur myself into action I went out and bought a brand new sketch book, pencils and crayons so I could write down ideas. It seems to have worked a bit because I’ve had a few. I had to wait until the sun was low enough for this one, so I didn’t get out to shoot until after tea.
