This Little Big Life | Playing Lotto

Well It’s Friday again and time to share another weekend moment from our life. This Little Big Life is a project I have started with Sarah from Sarah Rooftops to capture our weekends, every week. Whether that’s in the form of a photo post or video, the whole weekend or just one little moment, we are focussing on recording those small, normal, family moments that could so quickly and easily be forgotten with the passing of time before you’ve realised that actually, they are the big moments. You can find my first post in the project here.

I’ve decided to use video to create a short 1 minute film each week, firstly because I don’t think people make enough home movies these days and I want to encourage everyone to get their phones out and have a play with iMovie. It really is so easy and fairly quick to make a short video from a few clips, and so effective, I think I’m a bit addicted to making little films! And secondly because I want to get better at making videos, and everyone knows the more you practice the better you get.

Sarah and I would really love it if you would like to join in with our little project and share your own weekend moments with us. We’ve opened it up as a linky so please come and link up your posts, I’m really looking forward to little gimpses into other people’s weekends. All we ask is that you pop by each other’s posts and share the love a little bit, I’m really hoping that over time we can build a lovely supportive and creative community that we can all benefit from being a part of. If you want to use #ThisLittleBigLife on Instagram or when you’re sharing your posts on Twitter then please do, if you want to tag us in your tweets I will retweet them, (@blueberriesblog and @sarahrooftops) but there’s no hard and fast rules.

So anyway, last weekend started very slowly after a full on week at Butlins, we all really needed a PJ day to recharge a bit, so Saturday was spent doing a whole lot of nothing except eating, lounging around, watching TV and playing games. I made this little video of the girls playing Lotto together, which is always a bit of a spectacle. Mabel trying to twist the rules so that she wins, Greta cheating too but only because she doesn’t completely understand how to play…. It definitely wasn’t the easiest thing to video. Still, although I didn’t get all the shots I wanted, I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out and it’s another memory in the bank, and that’s what it’s all about!


So, link up your posts bellow, give me a bell if you have any trouble and don’t forget to pop over to Sarah’s post and say hi if you haven’t already!

    It’s lovely watching them play together. Thank you for getting me into iMovies! I think a mini movie once a week is achievable and I think the grandparents are going to love it! Lol! We’re going to a tea party this weekend, so much scope!!
