So why have we decided to have a new kitchen? … A tour of our current kitchen!

So then, it’s been rather a while since I last posted a kitchen update, though to be honest it’s rather a while since I posted at all after a bit of an impromptu break! Oops! Anyway, as I let you know in my last post, we finally booked our lovely new kitchen and are now just counting down the day until the work (and general mess and mayhem I’m told) begins. And the days are going by pretty darned quickly! The work is due to start at the end of July, which is only one month away now, and which… View Post

Make Time for the Great Outdoors with the Butterkist #GetCoated Campaign

So last weekend, despite a rather spotty little Ella, we hopped into the car and drove down to a local (ish) forest for a fabulously fun day out in the fresh country air. And as anyone knows, I do love a good day out. I love how there is such a wealth of exciting and incredible places for us and our families to go and explore in this little country of ours, such a vast variety of activities available to try and experience and how there really is something to suit each and everyone one us, no matter what our tastes and… View Post

a few of my favourite things… May

Well firstly, I can’t put into words how happy I am to actually be hitting publish on this simple little post, as it really does seem such a long time ago that I posted my last blog update. We’re nearly half way through June and my last post was the end of May! Oops! The thing is, I’ve found myself in a kind of blogging slump over the past month. Not entirely sure why or what may have changed, perhaps it’s been the humid weather making me feel all lethargic and lazy, or perhaps the lure of the glorious sun has been… View Post

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
