One photo every day in 2014 - MYproject365. Every Wednesday I updated this page with photos from the week that was... and now it's done, wohoo!
This page has now been split in two. For the first half of the year, please click here.
My last week!... 24-31 December 2014
Wohoo. Cannot believe a whole year has been and gone. I have loved but also disliked this project equally each week, but I am so pleased I have done it. Not only did I have a baby this year, I also had a two year old and my husband ;-) to look after, plus we had a big move. My main goal was to ensure I continued to use my camera during this busy year, and although I've used my iPhone occasionally, I've still achieved the goal and now feel very relieved it's over.
Holiday time, again... 17-23 December 2014
We're all packed and ready for a holiday. Auckland for a few days and then down to Tauranga and some of Grandma's Peanut Brownies especially for me. Oh, yeah.
Getting ready to holiday!... 10-16 December 2014
I always find at this time of year, most people are tired and grumpy, in need of a break, or maybe it's just me! Such a busy time of year with so much to do. Not that I'm complaining cause it's all good stuff.
The countdown is on... 3-9 December 2014
With only three more weeks to go on MYproject365, the countdown is most definitely on. Especially after technical difficulties this week. Grrr. We're gearing up for Christmas with present wrapping happening this week, and I'm feeling it's a lot like home with flowering Pohutukawa - New Zealand's Christmas tree!
It's officially Summer... 26 November - 2 December 2014
And what a beautiful first day of Summer it was too. Love how we can just grab our beach bag and in minutes be at the beach. This week we also celebrated a third birthday (which meant lots of baking). Oh, and we put up the Christmas tree!
I love Mango season... 19-25 November 2014
I love this time of year, not only is summer around the corner, but Mangoes are in season. Yummy. Just realised they would have been good in my delicious Wild Rice and Chicken Salad.
An entertaining week... 12-18 November 2014
This week we had friends over for dinners, lunches and sleep-overs. A sign of our summer ahead I hope! My photos however, have continued to be whatever catches my eye.
Sleepless nights and early mornings... 5-11 November 2014
I haven't had enough sleep this week thanks to a teething nine month old, but I have seen some beautiful sunrises and Dan has cooked delicious most nights. Yum! Oh and we all got a special treat after Master Two completed a very major milestone. No more nappies for him. Wohoo!
A grey week at the beach... 29 October - 4 November 2014
It has been a pretty grey week at the beach but a trip back to Melbourne for good friends, food and coffee, and the weather didn't matter one bit.
A week at home... 22-28 October 2014
Baking, playing with lego, planting our summer veggie garden and collecting too much junk mail (what is with that?), it was a week spent hanging out at home.
A few days in the city... 15-21 October 2014
This week I spent a few days in the city, and as you'll guess, stayed in South Melbourne.
Typical Spring... 8-14 October 2014
We've had a week of typical Spring weather, warm one day, freezing and very windy the next. Just like my photos which are a bit of a mix as well this week.
Over three quarters of the way through... 1-7 October 2014
Cannot believe we're in October already, this year is flying by!
Still can't believe we live here... 24-30 September 2014
What an amazing week of weather which has made living at the beach even better. We are so lucky, still can't believe it.
From one beach to another... 17-23 September 2014
The sand may not be as white and the water not as warm, but we're pretty lucky to be saying goodbye to the beautiful Sunshine Coast and going home to Torquay.
Holiday time… 10-16 September 2014
Hello Queensland, it's been too long. A couple of days in Brissie and then up to the beautiful Sunshine Coast and Sunshine Beach in particular. Amazing weather, amazing beaches, amazing house, amazing company… we're pretty much having an amazing time and it's very much well deserved.
Hello Torquay… 3-9 September 2014
What a week, a very stressful week and I can't believe we're here. We actually live by the coast, just a ten minute walk to the beach in Torquay. So lucky. And so glad that week is over.
Goodbye Brunswick... 27 August - 2 September 2014
After seven and a half years in Melbourne we're moving, not only out of Brunswick but out of Melbourne. Where to? Well you'll just have to check back next week to find out.
My first and only selfie... 20-26 August 2014
This week we've been making the most of Melbourne including celebrating my upcoming birthday! Thought I'd take a selfie for a change while I was out, the only one you'll be seeing in my year of photos, and it got photo-bombed!
Out and about... 13-19 August 2014
Nothing too exciting going on this week in my photos, but lots going on otherwise.
Changes are coming... 6-12 August 2014
From the craziness of my Wednesday morning exercise class (the popcorn is for the kids, not the dog!), through to another sign of spring. Life is good, especially with something big about to happen. Stay tuned.
A very wintery week... 30 July - 5 August 2014
It was cold in Melbourne this week. With hail, rain and strong wind through to freezing overnight temperatures, frosts and crisp clear days. Brrr.
It started and ended with good food... 23-29 July 2014
I've had a week of really good food, starting out with someone's birthday celebrations (lunch out, dinner at home) and another lunch out again at the end of my week. I was in the city a few times this week, back down the coast and my littlest man had his first taste of banana (and loved it!).
From Torquay to Glenrowan... 16-22 July 2014
From Torquay to Glenrowan with an awesome broccoli at the end. This week I headed out of Melbourne twice in one week, whoa! Check out Ned Kelly's 'smoking gun', the picturesque scene which could be from the South Island of NZ plus a couple of pics closer to home.
Hooray, we're half way through winter... 9-15 July 2014
I really dislike winter. I hate being cold, I hate the warm clothes we have to wear, I hate the weather. So, I'm pretty happy that we're half way through. Roll on summer!
I'm over half way!... 2-8 July 2014
Can't believe I'm half way through this project, which means we're half way through the year already! This week I had a family photoshoot (and the balloons used as a prop blew away into a tree), I did my usual baking, went into the city, got given some beautiful flowers and took Oliver to the park. I can't get over how good he is on his balance bike, it kinda scares me.
