There are lots of bugs going round our village and many people are feeling poorly. We are all tired, but no sickness as yet, though the kids are rather pleased at my almost loss of voice. Still upset at the loss of Charlie and feeling under the weather meant that I didn’t take any pictures, apart from a test snow portrait scene in preparation for the pre school Christmas fayre, where I have promised to take portraits. Getting my hands on a sledge, and trying out new studio lights my husband bought for me (as he needs some professional shots taken of various things in the near future so I am onto a winner there – taking shots for him and getting lights as a result), I set Tigger and Big Bear on the sledge and practised some poses. These are completely unedited as you can see, but I have an idea of what I can achieve on that day.
