With hubby away for thesis work, and with the kids in tow, the self-timer had to do. I had to work quickly before the children got entirely fed up, especially Little One, who for most of the time was confined to his pram, so as not to get himself into trouble. We did go for a picnic in the play park when I was finished, so they were rewarded for their patience.
As I’d been putting so much focus on the decorations, I had to improvise my costume a bit – how disappointing is that for someone who loves costuming like I do?? Tut-tut... I wore my fuchsia dress combined with the Cinderella dress, new sleeves and all. I accessorised it with the witches’ bonnet I made last year, but have since given a minor makeover, and my wand. For the pictures I added a necklace I made years ago, and the old Jane Porter boots.
The weather was misty, which created a nice backdrop for the pictures. I like mist, unless I have to travel by car. I suppose it might be an introvert thing, to appreciate being hidden from the gaze of the rest of the world... Which might seem ironic, as I post pictures here - but they have all been carefully chosen, and don't really reflect my private life :)
