The End

That's it folks. I managed to complete the project. 365 days of taking pictures. I really enjoyed it. The benefits were great. I got some terrific pictures of the girls that I wouldn't have otherwise, it forced me out of the house and made me do things that I'd otherwise avoid, it reawakened my creative side and made me look at things differently. But the biggest reward was how much fun I had doing it and how much I enjoyed sharing it with friends and family. There were times when I was bored or feeling down and really had to push myself but in the end it was so worth it. I'm really glad I stuck with it.
I've started a new one today. I really hope it's as much fun the second year. It's been a great record of a year in our lives.

A picture I've been meaning to take all year. Guildford Cathedral. I meant to take it at night but it is rainy and foggy. True UK weather.

Twinkle managed to print out a picture of Charlton Heston all by herself. I thought he deserved to go up on the pin board with Jesus and Gazza.

Oh my good God. Emily brought home 37 pairs of knickers to be washed. Apparently her strategy was to buy new ones instead of doing laundry.

We went to see the Rock Choir perform today. I was trying to get myself in this picture but only managed to get Stacey and Molly. Oh, and Rich and Josh in the background.

My reward for cleaning the bedroom was this tiny ice cream van. Which was the first new thing to be added to the knick-knack shelf since about 1992.
