I am a 37 year old mum of two boys. I have always wanted to pick up a camera and learn to use it, but life got in the way. In 2014 I was diagnosed with arthritis and lupus, this changed mine and my families life forever. I used to work full time as accountant, but since 2016 I have had to retire from work due to health problems. My husband had to give up work to be my full time carer in 2017 ! I now want to take my life back and try to find me again. Life won't be the same again, but I can take some control back. I've brought a new slr camera and I am determined to enjoy everyday and believe this challenge is my way back to it. Please be gentle with me till I get my feet on the ground, I am a complete novice at this ! Thanks and any advice greatly appreciated.
