This week’s Sticky Fingers theme was Self Portrait – two words sure to strike fear into a woman’s heart. But since the rest of you were so bloody brave, throwing off the anonymity of your blog names & Twitter handles with wild abandon, I could hardly stay hiding behind my teeny profile pic, could I?
So here I am – Mummy, from Mummy’s Little Monkey!! (But you can call me Jax). I’m a huge fan of the ‘hold the camera phone at arm’s length’ style of photography, favoured by bored Mums all over the world. So, here’s me – not looking in the slightest bit cheesy:
This is me & the munchkin enjoying a lazy morning. She’s never been an overly affectionate kid,
so these rare cuddles are treasured (and immortalised on my camera phone, so I can relive the moment during the long gaps in between).
Finally, here I am freezing my patootie off in the Snow Hotel in Finland. I did a lot of solo travelling before Lucia was born. I loved exploring Europe on my own, doing what I wanted, when I wanted, but photos were a challenge without a travel companion conveniently on hand to wield the camera.
Hence a pile of fuzzy self portraits of me taken in front of a pile of blurry, indistinguishable landmarks. Just like this one, in fact!!
