(WARNING: Photo heavy post) I am THE worst at getting out my proper camera, mainly because its bulky, also because I don’t really know how to use it properly (helloooooo auto mode), and finally because my iPhone is always there. When we were in Cornwall I made a conscious effort to try and take some – I have loads of empty frames at the moment that need filling. Below are some of the photos I took whilst on holiday in Cornwall in August 2016….you can never have too many seaside photos right? (These photos were taken between Looe, Praa Sands…

We are so lucky to live a very short distance from the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, and as we have an annual membership, we spend a lot of time there, walking the dog, or meeting friends as they have a great play area. If you are in the Cotswolds, its beautiful for a day out, but in Autumn, gets incredibly busy. In March, we visited, and I had my ‘big camera’ and managed to get a few shots of the little Brushneens amongst the bluebells.                              …

Monday started off quiet, but within two hours of breakfast, Izzie had given Ollie a black eye (accidentally). The rest of the day was spent having a catch up with one of my best friends and…

The plan this summer was to have a quiet and lazy one. By the end of the summer term, both kids were exhausted and zombie like and I was dreaming of a break from the school run (made especially harder by kids who didn’t want to go as they were worn out). We had a family holiday planned for a week in Cornwall, and a little day trip to London and a week of intensive swimming lessons for Izzie, but otherwise the plan was to go with the flow. Week 1 25th-31st July This week was the week of swimming…
