it's a privilege, a renewal, to share in M's childhood. it's so much fun. the simple joys of cheap plastic disguises, advent calendars, eating raw biscuit dough and keeping pet hailstones in the freezer :D

it's swiftly becoming apparent that - especially at this time of the year - any time to myself during daylight hours is a rare pleasure. i'm going to find it hard to be happy with the aesthetic side of my pictures, so i guess i'll have to concentrate on trying to tell the story.
