Ouch and shoot

Oh dear, things weren't going according to plan for my son's girlfriend bless her. The hairdresser took so long with her and her friend that they were running so behind time, it was a mad dash to be ready in time.

I was supposed to take some photographs at 4.30pm, head to the drs for my shot, then back to take a few more photographs of all the girls leaving in the HumV Limmo.

Russ phoned at 4.45pm to say the girls were still at the hairdressers. So I went straight to the drs. Russ, bless him, came with me. He said he'd watch Isabelle whilst I had the steroid shot. Of course, little madam wouldn't wait in the play area, so they both came in with me. I had to be brave. It hurt like mad! but I braved it. Isabelle was a bit shocked and had eyes on stalks when she saw blood on my shoulder. The dr had made me bleed! he told her I'd been very brave and she was ok again LOL

We headed off to take the photographs, my shoulder aching and throbbing! Eventually at 5.45 my son's girlfriend showed up. A mad dash and a major panic and she was in her dress. I managed to sneak upstairs and take a few shots of her but I think I only got three and that's because I stopped her on the way out. I had no time to get any decent shots and the only full length ones were outside with her gran's house behind her. I was so disappointed. I might try and talk her into getting laced into her dress again (a major performance!) and might try to get her to Flint Castle or somewhere like that with a decent backdrop.

This is one of my favourites from the very few I got, plus one of her and Russ together. She looked beautiful.


I have posted this on my photography blog but it's just too cute not to post here too.

Oh to be a 2 year old again. She just loves splashing in puddles, as you can probably tell.

Well it's steroid shot day today! I'm not looking forward to it in the slightest. So much for the Dr doing it on a Friday because 'someone will be around over the weekend'. Mark has to work the weekend AGAIN! He's already worked 12 days straight. It's driving me potty now to be honest. He goes to work, gets home around 7, eats his dinner then falls asleep on the sofa, usually between 8 and 9 pm. I'm spending so much time on my own. No adult company at all. There is a limit as to how much fun there is when you only have a 2 year old to talk to all day. It's a bit tough on me too because I have to do everything here at home by myself, including dealing with Isabelle. No good wallowing in self pity though I guess. Life goes on.

I've also got to take photographs of my son's girlfriend tonight in her prom gear. I'm really not comfortable taking these photographs. I'm hopeless at people photos :( I'm not looking forward to it at all to be honest, but I promised.

We have to go to the library later today to return Isabelle's books and DVD's. She really enjoys going but the problem is, she likes to play with the toys there rather than choose new books and DVD's LOL. I have to practically drag her out of there. She does love it though.
