10 things

Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers classmates have received some additional lessons and instructions from Shimelle this week which has been a huge bonus! It is always great to see an email from Shimelle waiting to be read in my inbox, they are packed full of information in PDF or video format (or both) and a fab source of inspiration.

Today Shimelle is hosting a new venture, hopefully the first of many, a monthly blog event on the 10th of each month aptly named '10 Things'. I love joining in with fun bloggy based adventures especially when they are international and I will get to see what all my classmates have posted from across the globe (there are some amazing people from this class and I have loved finding and following their blogs, so I can't wait to get home from work and start hopping around the world visitng them all!)

I knew immediately what I would share with you all, I just hope you don't find it tooooo boring! Recently I came across this blog announcing a 30 day photography challenge for the month of June. I decided it would be fun to join in and so far, I have managed to take a photograph from the list each day as instructed. So here are my 10 photos for the first 10 days of June......

Day 1 self portrait

slightly blurry but at least I am smiling (I really do not like pics of me!)

Day 2 what you wore today

took a snap of my work wear (nursing without a uniform)


and my evening wear (drinks with the girls)

Day 3 clouds simple

Day 4 something green
plant bought as a house warming present for a friend

Day 5 from a high angle

view down to back garden in the rain

Day 6 view from low angle


almost forgot to take this one, so took it late at night on the floor on a hopscotch rug, number 6 for the 6th photo!

Day 7 fruitfamily favourite bananas

Day 8 a bad habit
there are so many but I went for wine!


Day 9 someone you love


the girl (hiding as usual!)

and the boy

Day 10 a childhood memory


currently reading this book and it is set when I was at school and talks a lot about David Cassidy who I really had a huge crush on (I'm just a day dreamer, walking in the rain..... tra la la la la) I also liked the Osmonds, Bay City Rollers etc etc ( remember I was very young!!!)


I hope you have managed to stick with this long post, thank you if you have survived to the end!! Please join me in visiting Shimelle's amazing inspirational blog to see everyone elses '10 things'.
