One Saturday afternoon earlier in the summer, we rocked up to Granny's house looking for some fun. Lucky, then, that Little E had got there before us. he was helping Granny enjoy the Great Outdoors, bringing the outside in, he was camping in the living room. With a pop up tent and a kit of essential equipment, carefully arranged for maximum enjoyment,
I didn't even try to fight the urge to join him, so I crawled through the tunnel to find him wrapped in a blanket, pondering a plate of sandwiches and blowing the dust off his borrowed dried flower arrangement. He's a tidy housekeeper, is Little E: likes to keep the place nice.
Ah, we are just so cosy in here he sighed, offering me his hand (Have one of these sweets Auntie Sian. Nobody else likes them) and ringing his Great Ideas Bell. It was time to settle down for a bit of Despicable Me. The Minions said so. And we watched together until we were ready to crawl out again (backwards), in time for tea.
On the way back home in the car, I made a list of the things Little E had been enjoying in his tent. I was in an inventory frame of mind after a call from get It Scrapped and I already had an "inventory" page half finished on my desk.
|The work of the Christmas label maker here points to a winter photo - 2012- as the sunrise alarm clock sheds light on dad's bedside collection. The seeds and the seeds - little starters, little snatches of life. Edited, but accurate.|
The idea for this one started with a photo I had taken last year as part of Photo365. Now I'm remembering that I wanted to go back and photograph everyone else's bedside tables too. I wonder if I did it regularly would the collections change? or are we such creatures of habit that they would pretty much stay the same?
