It’s the start of a brand new month and the start of a brand new Photo a Day Challenge. If you’re unfamiliar this is a photo a day challenge run on instagram by full time blogger, Aussie Chantelle aka Fat Mum Slim. She sets a topic every day and your task is to take a photo relating to the chosen topic for the day.
I’ve really enjoyed doing these challenges in the past and they re-ignite my passion for photography so I’m going to give it my best shot this month. I do try and take the photo on the day but sometimes I dig into my photo archives to find the perfect picture.
The photo topic today is ‘Something beginning with C’ and at almost 9pm at night, I’m struggling. As I sit here typing this, thinking of what to take a photo of I’m listening to the beautiful singing voice of one of my most cherished, loved, talented, oldest and most special friends Kate Chapman, or Chap-Ass as I have affectionately called her for the past 15 years. It’s appropriate to be listening to Chap-Ass right now because today is her 30th birthday and I’m very much looking forward to helping her celebrate this milestone age in style this weekend.
Kate is an amazing friend. She’s loyal, caring, generous, hilarious and she is ALWAYS there for me when I need her. I can’t quite believe today is her 30th birthday. It doesn’t seem two minutes ago since we were celebrating her 16th Birthday by watching The Lighthouse Family in concert. A concert that, believe it or not, was actually brilliant! Yes, yes I know you don’t believe me but it is true.
She’s beautiful, clever, sensitive and a diva and life is always more fun when she is around. So here is to you my darling friend. Today you are my ‘Something beginning with C’ – Chap-Ass. Happy Birthday gorgeous!
Love you xxx
PS – I suppose the ‘C’ could be Kate’s fabulous flared out ‘coat’ in the picture too.
