our holiday – a photo a day

Last year, I challenged myself to tell the story of our summer holiday by choosing just one photo per day. (You can see the result here.) This year, imaginative being that I am, I’ve decided to do the same. I didn’t think you’d want to see the hundreds of near-identical holiday snaps we took in order to practise using our exciting new camera – but I thought some of you would probably be nosey enough to want to see some of what we got up to. So here it is.

(And the fact we returned four weeks ago is neither here nor there. This week I’m playing blog catch-up, remember?)

Day 11: spent mainly in a paddling pool. Despite cropping the photo I wanted to use so that it shows only the kids’ legs, WordPress still deems it too naughty to appear on my blog. Sorry.
