Blogging in brief.

                                 
There are a couple of factors that have affected my lack of frequency in blogging lately. One of these is that I trod on my laptop and consequently broke the screen. Until it is fixed, I have no way to upload the photos that I take on my DSLR, and rhek Blogger app for the ipad is somewhat limiting compared to the normal format. 

The second reason is that in the last couple of months, Ruby's sleeping pattern in the day has completely changed, and she has gone from sleeping for hours at a time, to having naps that last 40 minute. Without fail, I can guarantee that she will wake up 40 minutes after she has fallen asleep. The only exception to this is when we are out walking, when she will sleep for hours on end. As you can imagine, the time I have whirl a Ruby sleeps is quite previous, and there is a very limited number of things I can do in that time. Writing a comprehensive blog post us sadly not one of them. 

While I am limited as to how much photo taking and editing I can do with my DSLR, and he time I have to write, something that is very achieveable for me and that I love, is Instagram. One of the things that I have always wanted this blog to be, is a celebration of what I love and the beauty I see around me. Instagram provides me with the perfect outlet to capture and share life and beauty. So, my plan is to share some of the photos from my Instagram feed in this space. If you already follow me on Instagram, feel free to skip these posts, and I apologise for the repetition. 
                                    
Lately, Ruby and I have spent a lot of time enjoying the sunshine in the garden, and taking full advantage of the opportunity to dry multiple loads of laundry in one day. Ruby's at a stage where she is so curious and interested in exploring things, but is not yet able to sit, or tolerate much time on her tummy. This makes playing independently a slight challenge when we are outside, so I have been using the Bumbo to enable her to sit upright and explore some of her toys freely while I hang washing or dig up our garden. 

So having written this post before adding photos to it, it turns out I cannot for the life of me work out how to copy my Instagram photos into my blog posts using an ipad. If anyone knows how to do this, feel free to help me out in the comments section! The photos in this post are ones I have shared on Instagram in their pre-edited state.
