Never knew it could be this cold in the U.K.

A very late happy new year and welcome to 2018!
Honestly, it’s too windy and cold where I’m located in the U.K. and it’s not very pleasant! I very much prefer the cold and snow of Sweden over this.

I’ve been very busy over the past few months, so obviously my blog became a bit… neglected. Not something that I had planned, but it just happened. I’ve been traveling, working, not being happy in work, and just trying to figure out what to do with my time. So, there are some exciting news.

I’ll be attending a workshop in September with one of my favourite photographers. Exciting!
I’ll be shooting a gig in Manchester soon, so keep an eye on this page and my Instagram.
As of February 2018 I’m focusing on my photography and setting up my Etsy shop unless some super exciting opportunity comes along.
I have several exciting photo sessions planned.

So, things are looking good for 2018! From February I’ll be available for bookings again.
Here are some photos from my newly created Instagram account:

Right. I’m going to have lunch now while studying some HTML and after that I’ll be going through my old photo archives. Wishing you all a lovely day and an amazing weekend!

More photos from a sunny Sefton Park.

Good evening!
Today I visited the girl who I met a few weeks ago. We had some tea/coffee and biscuits, chatted about dogs and other things and discussed tomorrow when I’ll be taking care of one of her super cute dogs while they’re away. It was so nice of her to give me a car ride downtown later on so that I wouldn’t have to take the bus! I always enjoy chatting with her and spending time with her and her dogs and I’m super excited about having her dog Roxio over at our place. ♡
I’ve possibly got a couple more pet sitting bookings coming up, which I’m excited about. I’m meeting one of the clients next week, it’ll be interesting!

While downtown, there was much shopping which had to be done.
Basically, we needed a lot of new items for the kitchen, such as cutting boards and a bread basket. Since J went to work today I decided to try to buy as many of the items as possible so that he wouldn’t have to worry about getting all of that shopping done during the weekend when (in my opinion) he should be resting. ♡
I’m quite pleased with everything that I bought today – now we just need to find a nice looking dish rack and then we’ve got most of the new stuff for the kitchen covered.

As promised, here are some more photos from our walk in the park yesterday!

Squirrels in Sefton Park.

Good evening from the U.K.!
J and I made American blueberry pancakes tonight, they were delicious. We ate them while watching ‘Modern Family’ on SKY and it was really nice to de-stress in front of the TV while being in eachother’s company.

I’ve been feeling restless most of the day and J was feeling a tiny bit better from his flu in the afternoon, so we decided to get some fresh air. This time I took my 70-200 mm f/2,8 lens with me. J was amazing in finding interesting things to take photos of, and even helping me bribe squirrels to get really close to us! ♡

At one point he was trying to herd some squirrels to get closer as I was hiding with my camera behind some bushes. For next time, we’ll be taking peanuts with us to give to the cute and fluffly little things!

I really want to get a better 70-200 lens, preferably with some image stabilisation on it because the lens is super heavy and it’s very difficult to keep my hands from shaking while trying to focus on a small animal such as a squirrel.

For tomorrow’s blog entry I have some photos of birds to show from our walk in the park.

But for now, it’s time for a shower before bed, and maybe a bit of shopping on Etsy/eBay – I’m ordering some items that will allow me to be creative in the shape of fake nail sets. I’ll talk more about this when I’m not so sleepy. Nighty night!
