When Lego Explorer Visits Killerton, a National Trust property near Exeter in Devon.
Moments are fleeting, blink or not pay attention, and the moment becomes a memory. One reason why we take photos, is to try and keep hold of those memories, as clearly as possible. While I love digital photography, as much as the next iPhone photo addict, the nature of digital photography can also become fleeting.
The nature of digital also means it can be intangible. Just like how services like Netflix and Amazon Prime are becoming the new way of watching videos, it feels that looking at a screen is the way of viewing photos.
All our photos become part of one folder, a library of our own creation. Yet not to be held, passed to another, or shown as something other.
Photobooks really are the old style photo albums, which have been dragged into this century. And by that, I mean. They look good.
Or at least they can look good.
The photos show a photo book from Saal-Digital. You have a number of options to customize your book how you like, so my number one advice while ordering… TAKE YOUR TIME!
Take your time to work out not only what photos you’d like included, but the layout of the photos, any text you’d like to include, the style of the paper, style of the covers… what style you’d like the covers to be – THE LIST GOES ON.
Saal Digital are currently offering a £15 welcome voucher, which makes this a cheap option for anyone looking for a photobook.
In short, lots of options, good quality results, and better customer service then a lot of others out there.
But one final note about the photo book, I’ve featured. Our little one could pick out which Lego minifigure she was in the photos – no problems.
Now excuse me. I’m going to go and take some more pictures of small people in the big world out there.
(I was given a voucher from Saal Digital towards the cost of the above – but opinions expressed above are mine – ALL MINE!)
She was given an option. Go shopping in Tesco, or look for a local nearby Geocache.
Thankfully we didn’t end up running around Tesco, but went geocaching instead. Geocaching… which involved lots and lots of puddle jumping!
Thank goodness for wellies…
A random Monday mornings school ran led to being dropped a short distance away from where I live.
This was the view of Exeter from where I began my walk.
The other day, we finally decided to take the leap.
With National Trust – Killerton just down the road, we figured it was about time.
We finally signed up to National Trust membership, and explored Killerton on Sunday evening .
I had forgotten how beautiful that area is, and its just down the road.
“Someone” didn’t want to walk home with Daddy.
Until she realised she was tired… and wanted a carry…
Taken during a blowly wonder along the River Exe in Exeter.
We’ve managed to have a rare event this Christmas, as between the two of us we’ve been able to get a good amount of time off AT THE SAME TIME AS EACH OTHER between Christmas and New Years… Other wise known as Limbo time.
This was taken at the start of a walk along the Canal towards the Double Locks pub here in Exeter.
If you’ve had the last few days off, I hope you’ve had a good and relaxing time. If you’ve been at work, I hope you know you are awesome.
Three lessons of the week.
- Small one finds driving around looking at lights fairly boring. Walking and looking lights is entirely different.
- Taking a short cut over a park in the dark can seem fun. Letting small one go on the zip wire in the dark is also a nice fun “holiday thing” to do, but and this is the important bit, if you decide to go on the zip wire yourself, remember one simple trick. Hold On.
- Hitting your head as you fall off a zip wire isn’t a cool, hip, or trendy look on any Dad.
Spent a bit of time today feeding, and being a bit gobsmacked at the amount of Chickens at Greendale Farm.
For the record they were all free range, and they had plenty of space… they just didn’t want to use it…
(Side note, Greendale was also visited by Santa while we were there. The only one that the LO has ever really been happy with!)
