10 on 10 Photography Circle - February 2015



So by now you all know that I am pretty hopeless at doing things on a consistent basis.....you know like regular blog posts, or  routine house cleaning, or exercising more than once a month......so like ya do I've gone and joined me a monthly photography circle with some lovely blogging friends!!!!

Here's a little bit about how it works....

On the 10th of each month we will each share 10 photographs on our own blogs.....be it photos from one day or perhaps over the course of a few days....photos that were inspired by our day to day living, our everyday lives.  At the end of each blog post we will link to another of the blogs in the circle so you can pop by and check out their contribution for the month and hopefully find yourselves some great new blogs to love!

I am by no means a photographer and more often than not I take most of my photos on my trusty i-phone {where I then store them for so long that I end up deleting photos to take more photos lol !!}  But I'm willing to give it a go and learn a lot along the way.

For my first 10 on 10 photography circle project post I had some fabulous ideas for photos to take and share but then as usual I left it to the last minute and so decided that I'd take all of  my photos on the 9th and share them with you today....

So here's a glimpse of how my 9th of February looked!



Woke up...not to the sound of my alarm {I use my phone for my morning alarm}...but to sunlight much brighter than it should have been at 6.00am....grabbed my phone...battery flat!  Leapt (ok slight exaggeration!!)  out of bed to find that it was in actual fact 7.10am....quick calculation....20 minutes to get the three high school girls out of bed and out the door for the bus.........






Half ironed the school blouses whilst making toast and packing lunches {how many times have I told myself not to leave things til the morning...argh!!}





Having a luncheon date with my 3 sisters, which only happens about once a year at best, I was eager to get all of the girls off to school....so Miss 6 insisting that she had various ailments was not met with the highest level of patience....leaving home with not enough time to make a stop at the local chemist for throat lozenges we made a stop at the local chemist for throat lozenges...  go figure!





Arriving at school just after the bell rang we had the misfortune of running into the principal {figuratively speaking} as we rushed towards the class room...mummy fail!!

Then I was off to a quick appointment that would just allow me to be home in time to get dressed for lunch.....appointment ran 15-20 minutes behind schedule!!!!

Got picked up by my sister, picked up other two sisters along the way and went out to lunch where a bottle of coke helped to forget about the chaos of the morning!!







We caught up on the past few months that we hadn't seen each other for, reminisced about old times {most of which I don't remember or I wasn't even born for being the youngest by far in the family} and put on a few games of Keno...because how good would it have been to go home with a share of $73,689...!!!  Sadly that wasn't the case!!







Eventually we remembered that we had better order lunch....good idea considering I had 5 children to be at school pick up for lol !!  It was delicious....and I was sooo full......it'll be a get your own dinner night here!!







Back to school by 3.30pm for a meet the teacher afternoon at primary school.....and our first week of homework...and so it begins!!    :-(






Nearly forgot that Miss 10 had girl guides as it used to be Thursdays last year and is now Mondays....







A quick trip to the supermarket was unavoidable if there was to be any food in those lunchboxes the next day!!!!






Let's just say that I was more than a little thankful when it was time for the girls to brush their teeth and go to bed.  I will be checking that battery level multiple times before bed tonight...and maybe I should get a wake up call from hubby...just in case!!!






These were pretty quick snaps taken on the run.....not really a photography technique amongst them...but they are a pretty true glimpse into our crazy lives!!!

I look forward to participating again next month...and if I do that will probably be a personal best in sticking with a project from me!!!

  9. No wonder we fall into bed exhausted at the end of each day. Iron men have nothing on us. I hate that heart starting jolt to the system when you sleep through the alarm. Great shots.

  10. What a crazy day. There is nothing worse than when your alarm doesn't work. My husband is fanatical about charging our phones for that very reason. Jx
