This weeks theme on the Gallery is Self Portrait. Yeahh I know, it’s most narcissistic and whatevs but I actually really wanted to join in with this as I’m having epic self-confidence ishoos atm. I wanted to prove to myself I could post a picture of meself on the interwebz without lashings of slap on me face, a few sneaky filters to make me look all glam and mysterious and a clever camera angle to make me look 8 stone.
Anyway. This is me. Face on. About five minutes prior to writing this. No filters. No trickery. No fancy angles. No taking 1,374 different photos and selecting the best one.
But obvs I couldn’t NOT do a stupid face. Soz about that.

Hello campers! What time is it? It’s SATCAP TIME! *waves pants in the air*
This weeks offering is a drawing by the Bean, which I thought was too comical not to use. I’m a sharer, what can I say? C’mon, I DARE you to think of a witty / whimsical / disturbing caption for it. DARE YOU.
For more #SatCap frivolity and giggles, please pay the red-haired vixen Mammasaurus a visit and get stuck into some jolly good captioning!
Ready? #SatCap AWAAAAAAY!
First week of The Boy and Me’s 365 Project, done. SHAZAM. It is a slight challenge for me, as I don’t tend to take photos daily, I usually just take LOADS every couple of days, sporadic photo orgies if you will, but I’m saving meself now. Although, I can’t quite claim I’m going for quality rather than quantity here… Ahem.
1. Bean showing off his glorious eyelashes again. (Get your minds from the gutters, that’s a faux fur blanket he’s snuggled in!)
2. Bean with his cousins. He is absolutely besotted with them.
3. The cat. Poking her tongue out.
4. Bean. Poking his tongue out. I live in a classy house.
5. My favourite, taken today, Bean, in some Mexican wrestling looking mask. I told ya didn’t I? Pure class.
And that’s this week, done!
Take a look at the Boy and Me for a linky of all the other pics for this week.
BOO YA. Next week’s challenge, use my actual camera, rather than my iPhone. Hm. Yes.
So I discovered something new, cats and Christmas trees ARE NOT FRIENDS. Well, the cats want to be friends, I on the other hand have a mini panic attack whenever they are within spitting distance of one another. Chewing fairy light cables, climbing up the middle of the darn thing and getting stuck at the top, carrying baubles and trinkets around in their mouths proudly like little dead mice. And I’m certain you will be delighted to know, whilst lazily surfing about on these crazy waters of the interweb, I have found a flawless, cunning solution!
TA – DA!! Problem officially solved. Now excuse me, please, I must now go and rummage around in the shed for the drill.
