snapshots of my week | 31st march

snapshots, photography by

camellia and book page

magnolia and tree branches

a year or two ago, missing out on a few ‘snapshots’ posts would have annoyed me a bit. i always enjoy putting them together, as i love taking photos throughout the week, and even if all i say for some time comes across as negative and whingey – it’s nice to have a place where i can do that. i do try and have a good balance of positive and happy here, and realness too ..which, yes, can mean showing my pessimistic side as well as just generally being upfront about how i’m feeling, or have felt.

snapshots of my week – 13th march

snapshots, photography by

blossom and clouds

pink and green leaves

i feel like i’ve been on and off ill for the past month now. or, beyond the tiredness and pain i usually feel. i’ve had moments or a day or two of clarity which is good enough to get me through, but i really want to feel ‘myself’ again. hoping that will come with spring, which definitely seems to be taking its grips in the UK. pretty sure it helps everyone.

rainbow shadows on wall

oh, this week. this damn week. i’ve had a pretty bad cold & subsequent chest infection – with extra gross hacking cough included. having asthma, this tends to make things worse so there’s been a fair bit of gasping for air and genuinely feeling like i could easily die (luckily a short round of steroids have helped, i will probably need antibiotics too). i’ve broken a tooth that was already partly broken, had a few panic attacks and moments of general ‘what is the point’, our new to us boiler briefly broke …and jeez, the list just goes on. on top of everything else i’m stressed and worried about, i feel like i’m on the very edge of completely losing it.

i fell in love this week. despite having lived in cardiff for almost 7 years now, i’ve never been to bath. which is a bit silly really, as it’s so close, and about the same distance away from me as bristol. pretty much everyone i told this to had a look of disbelief on their faces, ha. but it was so worth the wait. despite the cold and dull (and at times rainy) day, i instantly fell for this city. i can’t even imagine how excitable i’d get about it on a sunny day.

though i had a few suggestions of places to visit, i decided i’d rather wonder around slightly aimlessly and see where my feet and my camera would take me. my main reason for being there was to visit the fashion museum, for a special preview of their latest exhibition, but i’ll talk about that in a bit.
