"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2014"

31/52: The week she moved from her cot into a big bed. And she definitely looks big in this double bed - my childhood bed which was passed down to me from my great grandmother, Mollie. As a little girl I loved knowing that my bed had history. It felt special, and it still feels special, knowing that my own daughter will sleep in it too. And she'll have sleepovers in it with friends, and maybe she'll pretend it's a boat and save all her teddies from drowning, and maybe one day she'll lay on it and listen to awful music that her parents don't understand while she writes in her diary. So many of my childhood and teenage memories involve this bed and I love that it's now going to join me in motherhood too.
