After complaining that I always come too late to the blogging party to join in with all the fun, my luck has changed as (thanks to the ever beautiful Start Up Wife blog) I found out about a brilliant August blog event in enough time to participate. Hoorah!
August Break is the brainchild of Susannah Conway. The idea is that for the month of August you post a photo every day on your blog and don’t worry too much about writing the posts…
Now, the only trouble for me, is that I find writing the posts infinitely easier than I do taking a decent photo that I actually want to post here and share with people, so I’m going to cheat a little / adapt the idea and not necessarily post a photo that I’ve taken on that actual day, but maybe just something from the preceding week. Otherwise, I’d spend every single day not remotely living in the moment — which is the whole point of the August Break — but completely stressing out that I’d failed to take a single good photo.
Here then, is my first photo, a butterfly from the Natural History Museum’s butterfly exhibition that we visited yesterday. The exhibition closes in September; if you’re based somewhere near this way and haven’t yet been, I definitely recommend a visit. I can proudly report butterfly landings on me, my partner, the baby and my niece. More excitement than you could possibly get in an average museum visit, I feel.

Beautiful picture! By the way, there’s a massive London Sewing Blogger meet-up this Saturday at Goldhawk Road. I’ll be attending, thought you might want to join?
I’m in Shropshire this weekend, unfortunately, otherwise I’d have loved to come. (Well, it’s not unfortunate I’m in Shropshire, just that it clashes!)
Yay!! You too 🙂
