The past few weeks, I have not felt like writing as much or taking photos of my life. August has seen a slower pace. And not just for myself, but for the world of social media too, where everyone is away or busy with school holiday activities. This is definitely the most lazy month I’ve had in terms of the 366 project. I’ve still been taking a photo a day, but most have been half-hearted iphone efforts. But over the last couple of days I’ve found myself picking up the camera more often, and I really want to give the last quarter of this project the best I can.
Like father like son.
We watched Thomas for a long while. Watched other children come and go, and it looked like fun.
Turns out that it wasn’t that fun.
Oh, and we finally got a table for the garden! My mum had been keeping this one for us for ages, but it wouldn’t fit in either her car or mine. Sam’s dad kindly collected it in his landrover a few weeks ago.
The bottom one is his face when he saw his favourite, Yojojo, walk onto the stage.
These photos were taken at Lollibop. Arlo’s auntie Jess was given some press tickets, so we got to go along.
The local aquatic shop was a big hit, we had tears when we left.
It started because he had finished his chocolate buttons. It carried on so long that I was sure he must have forgotten what he was so angry about. Then just like that, he said “Oooh choo choo!” and normal service was resumed.
We found it amusing that the aisles were full of packaging that Arlo wasn’t used to, but yet it took him no time at all to find his favourite thing (except it wasn’t actually a chocolate bar like on the picture, it was hot chocolate powder).
According to Sam, these guys are Stuart Silver and Rick Flame. They commit petty crime and household burglaries, hiding their loot in a sofa fort. Oh, and they are also in a band, ‘The Flamin’ Silvers’.
