10 on 10 | March Each month, on the tenth day, a group of photographers post ten images from the previous month. Each photographer links to another in their post which in the end comes full circle back to the photographer you started with. This is my contribution for March, using a collection of images from February. Don’t forget to follow through the circle with a clickable link at the end. February was a pretty quiet month for us here yet full on lots of new things, firsts and getting settled in to the new routine. I attempted a Day in the Life of our family on 27 Feb but didn’t make it much past school drop off… Evie is definitely a book worm. Olive is becoming more independent The beach is where Evie belongs. Evie was pleased to learn she hadn’t forgotten how to do up the zip on her dress during school holidays. To keep moving your way around the circle and see what the other 10 on 10 photographers got up to, head over to Jessica Dherari‘s 10 on 10 post.
This year I am participating in a blog circle. I was unable to post for January due to my computer being in a box in a shipping container in a warehouse so here I am with my first contribution! I am proudly joining a group of photographers who either shoot ten images on the tenth day of each month or curate ten images from the previous month. Follow the link at the bottom of the post to keep making your way around the circle to the next photographer! My ten images for February are from the tenth of January. I wanted to document how we were spending our days living in the temporary apartment accommodation. While we tried to get out for a small adventure each day, this just happened to be a day we stayed in and looking back it seems that cabin fever was at its peak with emotions being high or low – there was no middle level. Don’t forget that this post is part of a monthly blog circle.

This post covers the period of time at our temporary accommodation. At this stage, we hadn’t secured a rental property so the length of stay here was unknown but to save space (and perhaps a touch of optimism) we packed a weeks worth of clothes, a few toys for the girls, a few books for me and Josh’s work clothes as he was due to start in a few days. It was a two bedroom serviced apartment and while the girls were excited to share and LOVE lifts, the lack of a backyard and lack of space meant cabin fever set in after days. So there were many emotional times and to keep it real, I shot through those as well. It mostly felt like a holiday to me initially as we were staying in what was effectively a hotel, going o the beach daily and exploring a new place. In hindsight (2.5 weeks in to unpacking a house), I am grateful for the temporary accommodation so I could enjoy the new area before feeling bogged down in the obligation of unpacking and the weight of all our stuff (seriously – I thought I had done a great job […]
