Life Lately

Seems to have got away from me, its STILL February, surely this has been the longest 'short' month ever? We've had bouts of sickness in our house, even me who NEVER (as i was just telling my dad) gets bugs or colds, was smited (smitten?) and left unable to do anything but shiver and sweat and cough and sniff. It left me feeling lazy, hazy, down in the dumps and weepy. Thankfully it seems to be on the way out, and I've filled the fridge, (a measure of how I'm feeling) and planned our meals for the week. I've not really been photographing much either, so have decided just to share a few snapshots of the last couple of weeks.

                                                              Here's to March. Hurry up.

Romantic Getaway

So the plan was that Martha and her best boy Jack (from Jack's Paper Moon) were going to get dressed up and take these adorable little suitcases, (very kindly on loan from my dear friend Francis, of Francis MeaneyPhotography) and head down to Peatlands Park, to pose at the station and maybe get a go on the Peatlands Puffer, BUT would you believe, here in Ireland, that rain suspended play?!
So a quick re-think, and Cathy (Jacks mama) and I decided to go to our local Botanic Gardens, where there is a Palm House that is warm and dry and bright, photographer's dream yea? Martha and Jack still insisted on getting spivved up and taking their cases, so we obliged. They even did a little St.Valentines day smooch for us! Such a joy to photograph these guys, I know I may be biased, but I think they are just the cutest little curly headed couple ever. Also what about Martha's new 'do? And Jacks wee suit with his converse?! Class.

Happy Valentines Day!
Go give your best boy a smooch.

Date night!

Not for me unfortunately! I was working all day and Martha was visiting her wee chum, she ended up staying for dinner and a bath, and I came down to join them after work. I'm so pleased she will kiss and cuddle Ellie as she wasn't the most tactile for a while, but she has come on leaps and bounds and loves to hug and kiss her friends.

Soft Kitty, Warm kitty, little ball of fur.

Its so wet and cold here STILL, I'm running out of things to do indoors, if we bake I only eat the stuff, face painting has become a favourite activity, ever since halloween,only problem is our Martha always wants to be a cat. ALWAYS. I keep telling her we are dog people but she pays no attention....
