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?
I know it’s a million years “ahead of schedule” but Sophie wanted to put the Christmas tree up, and decorate it. So we did.
Here she is dressed as one of Santa’s elves / little helpers and she managed to hang a grand total of 2 decorations ( one of which fell down 30 seconds later ) before she got bored and wanted to watch Peppa Pig instead.
Still, you can’t deny she looks cute as fuck thou.
Well, one part of it. Since we’re doing the
Something you want / Something you didn’t know you wanted / Something homemade / Something chocolate
thing, I’ve had an idea for the HOMEMADE aspect.
Well, I’ve had half an idea.
See, for our wedding, we had to come up with “5 things you love about the other” and submit them to our registrar in secret, without the other knowing the 5 things.
So, I was going to make a thing, with *my* five things that I love about Katie!
I’m not sure what form it’ll take yet….I’ve seen some things on Pinterest, but nothing perfect.
( mostly I’m just writing this here so I have it written down and dont forget it in a hour….which I’m always likely to do )
Katie and I are working on a 4 point present attack, with regards to what we are getting each other.
The plan is that we must get each other a present from each of these categories:
Not limited to just one of each category, but all categories must be fulfilled.
And since we’re poor, we’ve put a budget cap on it.
£60, all in.
On the one hand, I’m hoping Katie gets me:
That would cover all bases just perfectly for me hahahaha
Sophie, dressed as a christmas pudding, with the surprise hit toy of the day:
Some wooden pegs and wooden disks. You stack the disks on the pegs. Rinse. Repeat.
In her world, it’s hilarious and exciting and magical and she just wanted to play with it all day. Bless her little pudding face.
Cynical Sophie doesn’t give a shit about your iPhone 5 or your oversized-jumper-that-your-mum-actually-bought-in-your-size or any of that bullshit.
Today, Sophie had a Christmas Party at her nursery.
Not only did they play games ( when I went to pick her up, there was an epic looking den in the corner, made from an upturned table and some sheets ) and dance about to music all day, they also found time to make some kickass art!
Check these motherfuckers out!
Tonight, we took Sophie to see Santa and a real live Rudolf!
Look at how fluffy wuffy he is!
Overall, Soph didn’t really give a shit about a silly old man with a cheap beard. But she does do a cracking Santa impression ( she slaps her belly and say “Ho ho” and sometimes, she’s even do a third “Ho!” but it’s rare )
Sophie giving Miss Bunny Flatfoots a big slobbery hug, while wearing her Christmas cracker crown, at Neal and Gael’s wedding.
But this year is set to be a good ‘un.
Tonight, we’re having our annual Christmas Eve Eve party, which gathers all the lost souls of our group, who have wandered far and wide, and welcomes them home. I’m possibly putting too much sap on that, but you get the point.
Then, on the 27th, which is typically our annual Day of Drinking, we shall instead be celebrating the wedding of two of our group. By drinking. For the whole day. ¬_¬
New Year….I dunno. I don’t know what’s been planned for that yet.
So, in short, expect lots of photos of my friends and other people you don’t know over the coming week or two. Most of them are beautiful, so they shouldn’t offend your eyes. I can’t imagine I’ll be in many pics, so you’ll be safe lol
You’re doing it right
This is how my children will celebrate Christmas.
I love waking up on Christmas morning, running out to the living room, and seeing piles of gifts under the Christmas Dalek. :3
THE CHRISTMAS DALEK.
OH MY GOD.
BUT DALEKS HAVE NO CONCEPTION OF ELEGANCE.
this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen
I have to do this now.
