Bouquets — On the Hunt for Joy Challenge

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Put Flowers by the Bed.

I always have small bouquets of flowers about the house to brighten the day; they also get me through Cee’s FOTD challenge during the winter, when wild flowers are scarce.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #112 — Pick a Word…

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for this weeks LAPC: Pick a Word set by Leya.

I’ve gone with the word comfortable, and in this case footwear.

My wife & I, almost 10 years ago, made the decision to live our lives without a car. This was for many different reasons; not least environmental, economic, & health. We, therefore, go everywhere on foot where possible. Obviously, travel involves public transport, but once at our destination, it’s back to good old fashioned (& free) foot power.

Even our weekly shopping trips are on foot, with the aid of our two stair climbing trolleys (featured in myย Fan Of… #64 post).

So back to footwear; by necessity, this has to be comfortable & capable of withstanding long distances (often our days out will see 10 miles or more covered). To become comfortable, I’ve found that shoes or boots need to be durable to attain the right level of comfort. These old Vans have certainly made the grade, to the point that they virtually have no tread left & the uppers are almost worn through in places — but comfortable, you’d better believe it!!!

Below are the new pair, barely a mark on the sole or uppers, but a lot to live up to.

Next are my everyday, go to footwear — my Merrels.

…and finally, for those tougher treks, my Trespass go anywhere, through anything boots.

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is taking a break. I’ve been running this challenge for nearly a year now and have 73 posts under my belt (need to get a bigger belt ๐Ÿ˜‚). With many of my colleagues at work taking holidays (I hear the livingroom’s lovely this time of year ๐Ÿ˜‚) my work load is on the increase over the next few weeks, with little spare time.

To that end, I’m taking a short break from Fan Of…. A huge thank you to all you awesome folks out there who follow & join in my weekly enjoyment of life. This is not the end, I will be back with more Fan Of… posts in August. I will also see many of you on various other challenges, & Water Water Everywhere will continue to run as normal ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.
