September

September is my most favourite month of the year.  And yet somehow today is already the first of October and I feel like I’ve quite literally blinked and missed it. I treat September as my New Year, far more than I do January.  I don’t do Spring-cleaning.  Instead I have what I call ‘Autumn clear-outs’.  I…

#32: Go to a gig

Having three children means that our house is constantly noisy.  Giggles and laughter, bickering and shouting, the TV, impromptu Sunday morning kitchen discos… it’s rarely quiet.

A little bit of Sunday silliness

Being open and honest about things is very important to me.  I often get comments from people on social media saying that my girls always look so happy, or that we always seem to do so many fun things as a family together.  And most of the time I’d agree with them – we do…

A brand new Blogger on the block

Hello! Welcome to my brand new blog ‘Picture Taker, Memory Maker’. I’ve been wanting to start my own family-based blog for a long time now, but wasn’t brave enough to take the plunge  – after all, who would want to read about little old me and my *slightly* crazy family? I’ve been taking photographs since I was…
