Me

Life in 52: {2018}

Anyone who meets me for the first time quickly recognises just how important photography is to me.  My camera is very rarely out of my hands – it’s pretty much an extension of me and I take it almost everywhere I go.  I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember, though the…

2018: My Year In Numbers

Last January I read this post by Suzanne from Inside, Outside and Beyond and loved the idea of summing up the year in numbers (I can’t help it, I just love lists).  I ended up putting my own post together (here) which measured 2017 according to all the things that were important to me and…

Little Loves: December 2018

December has been the usual jam-packed and busy month of co-ordinating birthdays, school events and extra work alongside preparing for Christmas and making the magic happen.  It’s always chaotic, noisy, messy, more than a little bit stressful (and I don’t tend to sleep very much) but I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.  There…

Little Loves: November 2018

Gosh it’s the end of November already.  This month has felt both long and short simultaneously.  I’m not normally a fan of November – it’s a bit of an in between month full of dark, damp, cold weather and I tend to just keep my head down and get on with things.  This year we…

Your Heart Knows The Way

I’ve been feeling a little bit lost recently.  Maybe even a lot lost. Up until recently, we hadn’t been on an adventure for weeks – the girls have been pretty much refusing to leave the house (other than to go to school of course) and whole weekends were being spent either stuck indoors or simply…

Little Loves: October 2018

I’m not quite sure how we’re suddenly at the end of October?  The first half term stretch of the new school year is finally over alnd we’re all looking forward to a week off just pootling around the house and enjoying a few fun autumnal adventures because there haven’t been very many of those recently…

Little Loves: September 2018

September is my favourite month of the year and it feels like it has zoomed by.  I always see September as my ‘new year’ and begin the month full of ideas and with plenty of grand plans I want to put into action.  It takes me until we’re a couple of weeks in to finally…

Little Loves: August 2018

In direct contrast to July, August has been a much-needed slow month.  We’ve not done a lot during the summer holidays, mostly spending plenty of time at home just pottering about the house and running errands locally in town.  It’s been wonderful in many ways (spending so much time with the girls just reading, playing…

They’re Not Who They’re Going To Be Yet

I’ve been keeping a secret. I don’t like secrets.  Surprises, yes.  But not secrets.  Secrets feel untrustworthy and trust is important in any relationship, even that relationship between reader and writer.  Secrets feel like they’re something to be ashamed of, and what I’m about to share is definitely nothing to be ashamed of.  It’s time…
