This morning my husband forgot his “schoolbag” with his laptop and all his work stuff. He didn’t realize until he got to work. An hour away. So the twins and I drove it down and met him halfway. Miss I stayed home with Grandfather. She tends to get carsick on longer journeys, or is just plain whiney so this was a big help. I’ve suggested he set a silent alarm on his fitbit to use as a reminder from now on.
One of the cousins had a birthday last week which was fun. They love to hang out with their cousins. We got a picture with all of us in it. Even Grandfather and me. Featuring Master N’s bellybutton and Miss M’s whiney face.
And some backyard cricket was played.
I had a lovely surprise late last week when the parcel van pulled up and delivered me a sizable and heavy package. It was a prize from a competition I’d entered about a month ago. A gorgeous Ausfonte cast iron pan from solidteknics. It’s made in Australia from one solid piece and is SO heavy. I’ve never had a cast iron pan before but I think I’m going to love it. This is in no way sponsored, but you can buy it here.
I am also excited to say I have been accepted as a contributor to Shutterstock. You need to have 7 images accepted out of 10 to become a contributor. I’d heard it was a tough review process and my first batch had 9 rejections (out of 10). Mostly for model release errors, my bad. I just scraped through with my second try though, with 7 accepted! My images are not showing up in the gallery yet, but I’ll post a link as soon as they do. Now I can do something with all those files sitting on all my hard drives and maybe make a small amount of pocket money. I’ll keep you updated on whether I make any sales.
