….is a brand new day and a brand new year.
Today: Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain.
There will be some of you out there thinking, ‘She shouldn’t have been doing her washing today.’ I know it’s supposed to mean that I’ll be doing it every day for the rest of the year, but with two children, a mechanic for a husband and being a very messy baker and soup maker myself, there’s nothing new there!
Perhaps you don’t do laundry today, because you believe in the more morbid superstition that says you will wash away a family member. Having grown up in a house with an extremely superstitious Father, I don’t subscribe to this theory either. Don’t worry though, this was washed yesterday, while it poured, just hung out today.
I’ve got a few shots of my washing line taken over the last couple of years. It may not seem like a very interesting subject for a photo, but it’s fun to see the different clothes that my children have worn. Clothes which haven’t necessarily appeared in photos taken of them. Especially now they are camera shy teens.
Above is a well loved outfit of my daughter’s: stripy top and skinny jeans. The pink (not a favourite colour but the top is turquoise) just showing, is the bottom half of some new pyjamas, that she had for Christmas, featuring Animal from the muppets. A nickname from when she was tiny (and loud) and had an abundance of wild curls.
Today, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to write about. I only managed two blog posts during December, but I’ve written before about what that time of year usually means for us. This photo a day challenge from Fat Mum Slim was my starting point and I digressed from there!
I’m not committing to taking a photo every single day, but I like the openness of the prompts and I will dip in whenever the fancy takes me. As for other challenges, I declared myself here on my blog last January and have failed epically with most of them, so we’ll see. What are you planning to participate in for 2013?
Wishing all my readers (if I have any left) and friends a happy and creative New Year.
