Little Loves: February 2017

I can’t believe another month has flown by already, can you?  We’re almost at the end of February, almost at the end of half term, and Spring is just around the corner – yay!  I’m joining in with Little Loves again this month to document all the little things I’ve loved throughout February. Read I…

Why I Take Photos

A couple of days ago I went to visit my Dad’s wife Annie (my Stepmum).  I haven’t seen her for over a year for various reasons…partly my work schedule getting in the way but also, if I’m truthful, because I find it really difficult going to their flat.  Dad’s ashes are still there as we…

Dad: 2 Years

It’s crept up on me a bit this year.  I didn’t expect that.  Last year I was full of the anticipation of the day arriving, the anniversary of the day I got the phone call to say that you were gone.  I thought it would be the same this year, that I’d be waiting, in…

I still feel a little bit like ‘the new girl’.  I’m an introvert by nature, so I’m not that great naturally at…

Leap

A few days ago I wrote about my intention for 2017 and how it is going to be my year of letting go.  Within that post I described some of the reasons behind my choice of intention – the main one being winning a competition to attend a photography retreat in Colorado.  In the spirit of honesty…

2017: My Year Of…

It has taken me a while to formulate this post.  I’ve had thoughts going round and round in my head for days and days and days.  For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working with therapy clients and supervisees in my day job on helping them to set their intentions for the year ahead. …
