What were you like as a kid? I was a tomboy and that really shaped me. I’ll always treasure how my dad fought to get me into the scouts after I begged and begged him to go. Turned out my dad was a softie and managed to leverage it and so.. I was the first ever girl scout in my area!
It turned out that wanting to get involved in the kinda outdoor activities the scouts were known for helped me develop skills in knot making (cause that’s a life skill right!) specifically reef knots are my “one and only” fancy knot skills. I also kayaked the River Wye, went climbing, mountaineering & my fave! survival camps! (Not quite Bear Grylls but was darn close!) 🤣 Without that, I don’t think I’d be the girl boss I am today! I love a challenge! What shaped you most during your childhood? 🚣♂️🧗♀️🚴♀️🤸♀️📸

It was a privilege working and meeting Chris & Di as a volunteer photographer on behalf of Mencap Cymru's "Our Social Networks" project.
This project is about history and nature of friendships and intimate relationships experienced by people with a learning disability living in Wales today.
I learned about Chris & Di's journey, how they met each other and fell instantly in love. I was moved at how they both were gushing with affection for each other.
On a couple of these photos they are pictured outside the door Di's old residence a ground floor flat which has now been turned into a cafe, this is now the rear entrance.
She said that they'd often meet around there when they were both courting. They both affectionately reminisced about their first encounters, falling in love and getting married.
