As the weather steadily grows colder and the days shorter, I have entered my winter stop for this year. I know some people may find it silly that I am willing to burn but not freeze – but I’ll remind those people of the accompanying increase of wind and rain within the season. My next wet plates will either be next spring, or if we our shed / garage in the next house will be big enough – in there. In the meanwhile I’ll have to keep myself entertained by developing a new smaller darkbox, a contact printing table/ frame and making some salt prints, as well as focusing on my Etsy shop, photography product development for said shop and organizing our first ever Christmas pop-up shop in the center of Cambridge! Expect location and date announcements in the next week or two! 😀
Which bring me to the next bit of news: we are moving house….again. We’re due to leave our sweet little apartment at the Cambridge cemetery at the end of November. At the time of writing, we applied for another apartment within the same area which is a bit bigger and hopefully more suited to our current needs. It will still not allow for pets though, which is a massive pain as we’re wanting a dog for a long time now, but it’ll have an additional bedroom, a separate kitchen, a bigger garden and a massive shed. Fingers crossed our application will be checked and approved within this week 🙂
And finally, Sean and I are engaged! After having been together for well over 13 years already, it still feels a little odd to know that we’ll actually be married at some point! We have not settled on the who’s and what’s, we have no date or location in mind as of yet but I’m sure that will come after having moved house.
