Back Through The Lens // Week 7

Happy Sunday guys!
Over the past 5 years, I have taken part in a little photo project called Project 365. Project 365 is simply taking a photo every day a year. Now I have 5 full years of photo memories to look back on and wanted to share a few here to reminisce. So here it is, week 7 of Back Through the Lens!

 February 16th, 2013.
 It's a shame that Song Thrushes are so rare because they are so very beautiful! Taken in Ridley Park, just along the road from our place when we lived in Blyth.

 Week 7, February 2014.
 Apparently back in 2014, Jake was turning 26! We weren't doing well for money so I made his birthday card and his cake (using one of these giant cupcake moulds, which aren't great). Can you believe he just turned 30 two days ago? haha Crazy!

 Eee my little blue munchkin! <3 I remember the day I was walking home, down West Street, and out the corner of my eye, I noticed a tiny blue bird huddled in a doorway. And as you can see by blue bird I mean a bird that was blue. This is a baby pigeon and he'd been spray painted blue :( I've looked after birds before but I had no idea where to start with the cleaning process, so I scooped him up in my scarf and carried him home, made him comfortable and waited for the local wildlife trust to pick him up! He was released a healthy, normal coloured pigeon a few weeks later.

With this week being Jake's birthday week, we usually like to go away somewhere and do something, seeing as we don't get out much. This year we went to York, somewhere I've loved to visit since my childhood but Jake had never been. Sadly it was not long after their floods so a lot of things were closed and the weather was terrible. Still, we had a great time at the National Railway Museum.
(Fun fact about me - I love trains!) Check out the blog posts from our visit here >

  1. Aww, poor pigeon, but you did save him. The two I tried to save weren't as lucky, both had to be euthanized. The National Railway Museum is great, I've been there with my husband for an anniversary (we've met in a train).

    1. He was so little and so scared, he literally just sat there and let me pick him up and take him home. How could anyone do that? Poor guy!
      Oh no, what a shame. Though I suppose it was better you saved them and gave them a shot - being put to sleep is better than suffering.

      Isn't it?! I love it there! Oh how amazing!!! So sweet.


  2. Lovely! How sweet of you to take care of that little bird ❤️. I love trains as well...they’re actually a major theme in the novel I’m currently writing ☺️

    1. Thank you :) I couldn't just walk past the poor thing.
      Yay for trains! That sounds super interesting indeed...hmmm!


  3. That poor pigeon! How awful :( I hope no one did that to it on purpose. Thank you for taking care of it and getting it proper care and attention. You're an angel to wildlife/animals. x x

    1. We think it was done on purpose sadly :/ Pure badness. Ah thank you very much, that's so sweet of you. I just physically can't go past an animal that needs help lol. It effects me and I make myself ill over it.


  4. I can't believe someone spray painted a pigeon, what is wrong with people? But well done you for rescuing him!
    I love the National Railway Museum - we went all the time when the kids were younger but haven't called in for a couple of years now, I'll have to make another visit soon!

    1. I know :/ There are some evil beings around!
      Aww do you?? I love it too. Only been a couple times but yay for trains!
