The Most Versatile Style EVER….. Confidence!

Yep, It really is as easy as that. Or maybe less so for some people. As I can very well understand. But I’m serious, there really is nothing more attractive than confidence. And I’m not saying it just makes you attractive in a sexual way either. Yes, of course you’ll be more attractive to potential suiters, but more than that, you’ll be admired by your friends, your family, onlookers, contemporaries and peers too. People will look up to you, they’ll respect you, admire you and sometimes even want to be you!  If you give off an air of confidence, people will flock… View Post

We’ve finally booked our new kitchen!

Yes, we’ve finally done it. We’ve booked and paid the deposit for the kitchen of our dreams, which personally I’ve been lusting after probably since the age of two. And I can’t tell you how excited I am. Actually, I’m beyond excited. The last time I provided you with a kitchen update, I must admit, I was feeling pretty darned deflated. To be honest it was a little reminiscent of the whole house buying and selling process, which nearly tipped me over the edge I must say! One moment I was up and all excited and whatnot, but the next I was… View Post

My Sunday Photo | Beautiful Spring

Today I’ve decided to share a little snap I took in the week, as I returned from a beautiful Spring morning, school run. I seriously wonder what the other mums and dads must think of me as I dawdle along the pavement, while all the other parents rush off in different directions to their cars or back to their homes. I’m always looking around me, into peoples gardens, looking up at the top of trees and out to the sky beyond and then I’ll suddenly stop, put the little scooter down which I have to carry back home, and out comes my… View Post

A Family Photo – My Captured Moment

 It’s a pretty rare occurrence in my life to capture a photo of all four of us together at once, as invariably I’m the one holding the camera. So, when we had the opportunity to have our friends take one of us on a recent walk, I well and truly seized the moment! The morning walk was so wonderfully calm, complete with good company, happy smiling children and beautifully tranquil surroundings through fields and along the waters edge. So it really did make the perfect backdrop for our family photo! Linking up with the lovely Heledd of Running In Lavender for this weeks’ My Captured… View Post

Bank Holiday Fun at Wellington Country Park

  I’ve been looking back through some of my photos of the wonderful recent bank holiday weekend his bank holiday weekend so I just thought I’d share some of my highlights. Some of my friends had seized the chance of the three day weekend as the perfect opportunity to disappear off somewhere nice for a little holiday break, but with us travelling off to Texas in only a week, we stayed home to save our pennies. So instead, we pottered around in the back garden, we took the children off to their usual weekend classes and to friends birthday parties,… View Post

a few of my favourite things…. April

  Oh I do love a good bank holiday. Though I just wish every weekend was three days long. So I suppose it was a lovely relaxing way to leave the month of April behind us, as we welcomed in May. When I look back through my photos of the last month, and of the little things we’ve been up, and the memories we’ve captured along the way, it’s hard to remember half of it. But I suppose that’s the joy of photography isn’t it. Our everyday lives are just so hectic as we flit from one day to the… View Post

Easy ways to update your home for Spring…

Well, we’re fully into the throngs of Spring, but even though many of us are still gazing out of our windows at dull and dreary landscapes, with April showers, grey skies and sometimes the odd snow flurry or two, I for one am going to be all optimistic and put it out there that very soon, we’ll all be basking in bright daytime sunshine and dining out on fresh balmy evenings. But, whilst we’re not out and about, still hiding away a little bit from the rain (and hail!), I’m going to try and prepare for the warm months to come… View Post

Colour Schemes for a Bright Spring Home

Spring is such a delightfully exciting season don’t you agree. I find it so full of cheer, optimism and anticipation. With the days becoming longer and longer, the evenings turning lighter and the weather progressively growing a little warmer, I just can’t help but look forward to new and exciting plans, projects and activities. One thing I’m thoroughly looking forward to is sprucing up our little home, giving it a new lease of life and a good old-fashioned Spring clean. This, after all, is the season where we all don our marigolds and dust off the cobwebs and sluggishness of… View Post

A simple walk to work

I normally drive to work every single day. Which is silly really, as I only work at the other end of our town, and it’s a perfectly reasonable distance to walk. I suppose the main reason for this is ease. Each day, as I like to start work as early as possible, I generally pick up the nursery run, and Mikey takes Holly an hour later for school. With the nursery across the other side of town, it’s generally easier and much faster to drive her there and then to carry straight on to work afterwards. So, this is what… View Post
