About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

May Bank Holiday Road Run

It's that time of year {again} when I am either dressed like an Inuit freezing in Hail, Sleet, Snow and ice to photograph tractors or I'm in a flimsy summer dress turning a delightful shade of cooked lobster!  Today we were blessed with sun...so yes I'm turning into a cooked Lobster. Actually as this is going to be scheduled to appear the day after the road run it was yesterday not today.  

I often wonder quite how I end up doing this and then I realised it's quite simple...my Dad participates and therefore I turn up to photograph it.  It is all in aid of Charity and whatever the weather a lot of people turn out.  An appearance from spectators is always welcome by those driving the tractors and as this is a relatively small number of participants {approx 50 to 60} it is all over relatively quickly. 

 This year I forgot though and it was all a last minute thing, to be honest the whole bank holiday has snuck up on me and I am not at all prepared for it.  I don't know why or how but I guess things have been really busy for quite some time now and time especially the weeks have escaped me.  Because it was a last minute take off with the camera there was no picnic to be enjoyed whilst waiting for them to get to the spot on the route chosen for the best photography options.  However the weather meant that it wasn't too much of a hardship waiting and the heat wave meant I wasn't reliant on a flask of hot drinks to keep me warm!

So without further waffling here are the forty odd photos I took whilst they made it past our point on the route.
