week 4

week 4 was monotone week - 95% had to be one colour and the photo either black/white, sepia or tinted in one colour.
Journaling: “step through a door...realise the possibilities” inspired by “As you walk through this door” by nochance

Kit used is Shine Like A Star by Krazy Mary

week 3

I am a bit late with this post. I got through week 2 and this was my lo for week 3. The theme was journalling - we had to do 200 words and 1 picture without people or animals. my photo had a few ducks and a couple of rowing boats that i had to remove. but I got through so was quite chuffed!

Journaling reads:
You were our first child – a longed for little boy with lots and lots of dark hair.
When you were three weeks old you began to cry and cry and cry. You didn’t want to feed. Your tummy became blue and you were sleepy and floppy. You were three weeks old when an ambulance took you to hospital – little did we know that it would be 14 months before you would be back at home!
You were transferred to Great Ormond Street under police escort, with sirens sounding, where you were diagnosed with a heart defect. Next came long operations and complications and infections and more infections and more complications and more long operations.
We then fast forward over 10 years to a family holiday in the Lake District where you climbed a mountain – a proper mountain. This was a real achievement as you have severely reduced oxygen levels. We went back the following year and you climbed another, harder, mountain.
This picture is Derwent Water which looks very calm and peaceful in contrast to the wild unpredictable mountains behind. There are dark clouds but through these clouds the sun is fighting to shine through. Even in those dark unpredictable days in hospital there where rays of hope while you fought and fought and fought.

I miss…
…the sound of the wrapper being
torn frantically from the chocolate,
the sweet smell that hints of the pleasure
to come, the chocolate melting on my
tongue and filling that craving
and the thought of the next bite
