A day out shopping in the city of Nottingham with my Mom.  These are a few snaps of things I noticed while having a wander around the city today.  The town hall is obvious but I often think if we just look up one level, above all the shop fronts, you often see some really beautiful older building hidden behind the usual mind-numbing high-street blur.

See if you can find something more interesting above your usual high-street haunts.

Last weekend I went home to spend time with my family while J and his fellow stags went on a stag weekend to Wales.  They had a predictably crazy(ish) time while I had a very chilled out weekend with my family.

I took some interesting photos (as you can see) of my parent’s very pretty garden and of my absolutely nutty cat (who does tend to come with me wherever I go - she travels extremely well!).  There was a spell of boredom where my sisters-in-law-to-be-very-soon and I decorated some of their folders to take to uni with them in a couple of weeks.  And I very slightly branched into taking pictures of people - Lauren being my first and only subject so far.  I think this has worked really well and is something I’m quite keen to continue - it’s just a case of catching people unawares, as I think we tend to photograph better when we don’t know it’s happening!

These photos are a great little insight to my world at home in Stamford with the family.  Very relaxed, fun, and a chance to unwind and catch up!

Enjoy.

So bored I’m helping my sisters-in-law decorate their folders for uni! Doodling is fun. We’re using photos, tipex, nail varnish and good old-fashioned fineliners! Fun times! ;-)
