I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
Today has been a bit of a shitty / odd one, so here’s a picture of Katie taken when she was getting ready for a wedding last month, that I only just found today, when Sophie wanted to look through photos.
Sophie and Katie were dressed in their finest today, for the BFN Christmas Party, so I grabbed a photo of them when I got home from a terrible, long, boring day at work.
Today, we took Sophie to the Glasgow Science Centre, all thanks to the ever wonderful Rosie, and Soph loved it! Here she is being all nautical.
Yarrrr! Ye scurvy bilge rats! Captain Sophie-pie and her band of motley misfits, sail the high seas in search of treasure and of course, bananas. #pirate #babygram #baby #instababy #cute #sophie #katie #kittwalker @katiemorag #ahoy #avast #yarr (Taken with Instagram at Home Base Alpha)
See this…this is a photo from 10 years ago. This is what Katie and I looked like 10 years ago.
This is a photo from the night Katie and I started going out, September 23rd 2002 ( well, 22nd into 23rd…but we call it the 23rd, because it was after night-clubbing that I asked her to be mine. Which was waaaaay after midnight )
Now, some people, go out with each other, and then break up, and then get back together again. Katie and I….we’ve been together, solid, contiguous, unbroken for 10 years.
10 years of stories and injokes and laughs and misunderstandings and harvest moon and halloweens and friends and cakes and burlesque and that-one-time-we-tried-to-make-sushi-at-home and moving houses and starting a family and planning our wedding.
That’s not too shabby, if you ask me.
it also marks Katie’s achievement of breast-feeding for a whole year.
Most people give up after 3 months or so. Some mothers don’t even make it 3 days.
But Katie has persevered. Ups and downs, highs and lows, she nearly quit once or twice. But she didn’t.
Sophie has not once been fed formula. And because she’s a fussy bastard, she wouldn’t even take expressed milk, meaning, every single feed…every single feed….through the day and through the night…has come directly from Katie.
It’s an enormous achievement and I’m super proud of her. And I want to mark how much effort she has put in…a present.
But what? Any ideas, citizens of Tumblr / Mum-blr?
40 Weeks of Sophie
( Spoiler: She’s in Katie’s belly )
And she doesn’t want anything.
I’ve tried out right asking, I’ve tried getting her to make a Wishlistr, I’ve tried subtly inquiring to find out if there is anything she wants but doesn’t realise…but to no joy.
I don’t know what to get for her.
And I can’t *do* things, like I would in previous years. Like, we can’t really go for a meal, just the two of us, because Sophie would need watched and would need breastfed ever 2 hours or so.
I’m not gonna give her coupons for her to redeem to have me take Soph off her hands sometimes, because, well, I do that anyway.
She doesn’t wear jewellery at the minute because it might scratch Soph.
This is tough. It’s never been this difficult before. And soon, her sisters and mum are gonna start asking me what she wants, and I’m not gonna have any answers.
So……….if anyone has an ideas…even just half an idea that I can work on and finish….an unpolished thought….I’ll take it.
ACTIVE TUMBLR BRAINSTORM / MINDMAP GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Katie, Sophie and I were all dressed up, the sun was out, and we had a person to hold the camera ( Ciara ) so figured it was a good time for some photos, since there is never any of the three of us.
So. How was your weekend? I went to a fancy dress party where Katie won a trophy for best costume. lol. I should think so..she made it from scratch!
Sophie isn’t well. Ear infection hasn’t shifted and now she’s scratching the other ear :(
poor wee lamb.
Katie just text me, and I thought it was funny enough to share. lol
( but I blanked out her phone number, because you internet people are creepy ¬_¬ )
