I'm attempting Project 365, a photo a day every day for 365 days a year

Week 16

15/04
The Boy at Donnington

The day after returning from a family holiday in Whitby, The Man and Boy were away again to spend the weekend at the British Touring Cars Championship while the rest of us stayed at home and in the girls' cases relaxed and in mine, did the cooking, the washing ....


16/04
Primula

...cleaned the grouting in the bathroom, and weeded the garden. Easter weekends are so relaxing don't you find*

17/04


Managed to escape the housework for a walk into town and all the cherry trees on the way (and there are a few) had blossomed while we were away.

18/04 
Teenagers and mobile phones

This has been The Teen's default position for most of the holiday. Today she was mostly looking at her phone at grandma's though we don't know if she actually noticed the change of scene.

19/04

Fresh homemade scones, homemade strawberry jam, clotted cream and fresh strawberries because, well, why not?

20/04
blue garden plant

New plants for the garden, I've been working on establishing perennials in the garden to cut down on bedding new plants in every year, Apparently these come back stronger and stronger each year, Hurrah.

21/04 
Smashing champagne bottles

Friday night and I went to a Wake, quite an unusual one celebrating the end of one chapter (and the start of another) for friends working at an arts company. A fun night with an auction of memorabilia and much champagne bottle smashing over heads (though they were made of sugar glass).

Wakefield Magistrates Court door

One of the doors at Wakefield Magistrates Court where I spent many happy hours covering cases when I was a probationary reporter. It's set to be closed down soon and no doubt turned into a restaurant or nightclub.

Where I Lead, Beyonce Follows

When Beyonce announced she was pregnant with twins last month, she all but broke the internet with an Instagram post posing in her floral, pregnant glory.

She followed the Instagram post up with the results of an entire photo shoot of her pregnant self; in lingerie, underwater, tastefully naked, or with daughter Blue Ivy (the results of which you can see in Time). And that too was glorious.

It made me feel deeply sad that when I was pregnant with my own twins way back in 1995, pregnancy photoshoots weren't a thing like they seem to be now. Unless of course you were Demi Moore, who'd gone naked on the front cover of Vanity Fair 4 years earlier. And that wasn't something that was ever going to be emulated in the depths of West Yorkshire in 1995.

Wakefield Rhubarb Festival bridal couple

Wakefield Rhubarb Festival was in full flow on Saturday and so busy that a young couple who were getting married in the Cathedral, slap bang in the middle of the Festival, decided to venture out into the visiting rhubarb fans for a few wedding photos.
