Siblings {January}

Brilliant, I thought. There's a new linky going round, set up by ten beautiful people, which I'd really like to join in with. It's all about siblings. The idea is to capture your siblings on the 10th day of every month this year (mental note: must add to calendar) and publish the photo(s).

Whoops, I thought, at 7pm this evening when I first saw the linky idea. Today is the 10th! So with a sense of foreboding in my heart, I thought I'd give it a go anyway, after our youngest got out of the bath.

Unsurprisingly, it wasn't the biggest of successes. The usual 16 photos in succession (well, I don't always stop at that number..) with requests to 'Please look at the camera', 'Please stay still for a second so you're not blurred', 'Please smile... naturally, no, not that forced grimace' were all met with total disregard. Hey ho, at least they're consistent.

If I'd have used my crystal ball I could have seen that this exercise would pretty much end in tears but it's all OK, they said sorry to each other (there was a misunderstanding over what constituted a dance pose, with Sasha insisting that was Superhero and Tamsin really should have plumped for something more like Irish Dance pose number two...) and are now sleeping soundly.

Phew. Glad that's over for another month!
