Nicky jumps for Joey
LMJ has moved house and is now a proud resident of Abingdon-on-Thames. Well, for the next two months anyway, before she moves back to her beloved Oxford. These will be two months of photographical exploration and food feasts and bootcamp and Big Bang Theory overdose (if such things is even possible!).
Moving house is a traumatic exciting opportunity to shake things up a bit and declutter and experiment with living off a box (or several) for a few weeks. It is also a great opportunity to look around you and see how lucky you are to have amazing friends that are there for you when you need them. I had a lot of help moving and I had a lot of help keeping calm and happy for most of it and I have a place to stay where the sight of my boxes is accepted and taken with humour. Every cloud has a silver lining, as they say, and feeling this lucky is mine, and I wouldn't swap it, ta mucho!
On the note of friends, rain can also provide you with a lovely insight into your friendship levels. Take the Erratic Photographer and LMJ, for example. LMJ wanted to photograph people jumping; she wanted this desperately but the weather wasn't playing ball. And so the Erratic Photographer put on his wellies and braved the heavy rain and a few puddles to help her out. Now, that's what I call putting yourself out there for your friends 😀
:: Little Brother taking the day off to spend time with me in Lisbon.

:: L'Atelier. it is simply BRILLIANT!
:: Oxford. Blimey this city is pretty!
:: My sweet Nikon D90. Aren't you cute? Yes, you are!
:: socialising over food. some things are just great!
:: my classmates over at L'Atelier. so lovely and chatty!
:: the thought of a kindle. I'm warming to it!
:: no rain for almost a full day. oh yeah!
:: my Yoda-to-be. makes me laugh every single time I look at it!
What a happy Monday this is! I'm tempted to print this post and carry it around… just in case. How's your Monday going? Happy and dry? Happy and wet? Let me know 🙂
Little note: Nicky and I went out again to jump today. Well, he jumped and I lay on the grass photographing him from below. Life is good!
