This Little Big Life

There's a new link up on the block.  Sarah of Sarah Rooftops and Louise of Squished Blueberries have created a fun photo sharing project documenting the little moments in a weekend that make up the bigger moments in life.  Since I've been feeling a bit uninspired with my Photo an Hour attempts recently, I thought I'd join in with this instead and see how things turned out.  Would I still remember to take pictures without the enforced regularity?  Read on to find out...

Tam came to visit and I set off to meet him at the train station, not anticipating much adventure and therefore not bothering to take my camera.  Oh, how foolish I was, not least because this happens on a regular basis.  We didn't do anything especially thrilling but we had a nice little wander and I would have liked to take nice little pictures of the places we went to.

There was lunch and ice cream cones, graveyards and 2p machines and another minion from another crane machine.  There was knitting and spaghetti hoops and lying on the living room floor, just to see what the view through the lens looked like from down there.  There were pictures taken for a post about a sheep, coming up later this week.  There was football.  Of course there was.

On Sunday, we actually had options of which event to attend in my wee little hometown.  There was a food festival nearby, but we went for live music on the promenade - listeners got to make use of the deck chairs, after all.  The seagulls were particularly lively that day, especially when a naive couple tried to unwrap their chippy lunch.  It was a cloudy but calm day, my favourite type of weather.  We did some yarn bombing with a few crochet animals I had sitting around at home - the mouse joined a lion statue, the whale was hung from a tree by the harbour and the duck found a place on the railings by the boating pond.  I'm planning to walk around town again this week and see if any of them are still there!

After walking Tam to the station, I did a few sewing jobs, including de-beading this top I found recently.  I save all my crafty rejects for Tam's auntie (she does all the crafts) and my face cream was finished just in time to provide a good bead home.

There's more info on the link up here and anyone can join in on social media too.  I doubt I'll remember to capture every weekend but it's fun to see what everyone else is up to!

How was everyone's weekend?  Full of chances to get out and embrace the summer?
