Day 216 – Shhhh it’s a secret! Wow what a day! I have had some requests in my time but this one was the most fun. Quentin and Liz had arranged a surprised intimate wedding with their family, except the only people that knew about it was myself and the lovely couple. My mission […]
Day 191 – Young love. Before Hugo was born we joined a NCT group to meet other parents to be and to grab some advice on what to expect. In the time we attended the course we met some amazing people and hopefully now some lifelong friends, today was the birthday of one of […]
Day 214 – My fail safe As you will know if you have been following my blog that I have to take one picture everyday for a year, easier said than done, especially if it’s to have any substance! This does lack on occasions, but a picture is a picture and that meets the […]
Day 213 – If I could turn back slime. Snails! These things are the bane of my life. When I was around twenty I decided to get a tattoo, of what you ask? A SNAIL, yes that’s right a snail, what was i thinking? Well… There is a little more to it than just […]
Day 212 – Loving the greenery. So time to head back to the shire after a lovely weekend with family, but before I go had to snap the wooden hearts in the window, its such a lovely place it’s almost paneful to go !!
Day 211 – Watching your crops grow. Nothing beats spending time with your family and little ones. today is no exception. After a storming drive down to Plymouth last night we woke to a glorious day, good thing really as we had planned a nature walk around Buckland Abbey, topped off with a canoe […]
Day 209 – Little Princess Today the gorgeous little Issy came over for her photo to be taken, it was nice to take a picture of this cute baby girl so that little Hugo could retire for the night, she was a well behaved little princess.
Day 208 – Green Sleeves Try not to hum the song now that you have seen the title! It seemed very apt as I would imagine a big country house or stately home on huge beautiful grounds to go along with this song. This must be the inspiration for the title as I was […]
Day 207 – Clouds full of water So my training for the Cheltenham half gets back on track, haven’t run for a while so managed just under 5 miles, but at about 3 and half miles in I had to stop, put the water down, take a few breathers and take in the view, […]
Day 206 – Sunset high-rise Today I wanted to get out and catch one of the lovely sunsets I keep missing, so poised at the door trying to see if the sun and clouds were going to dance together to give us a closing show performance I waited with camera, hugo and baby car […]
Day 204 – Come rain or shine. Today my step father was over from Dubai and is quite possibly the king of BBQ’s, so it was only fair I rose to the challenge, I think it is clear to see I lost! Six sausages, rain and a gazebo doesn’t match the Dubai Sun, endless […]
Day 203 – The cats whiskers! This cat is a cute cat but don’t be fooled but its sweet looks! This picture does look like the cat has some attitude, almost to the point of asking me what am I doing in my own garden, but this cat is brave and has some serious […]
Day 201 – Village People Why em see hay! Actually this is probably the last last place you’ll see a group of guys dressed as a camp police man, indian, soldier, salior, cowboy, although you may see a few dodgy farmers! On a serious note I love this village this really is the the Heart […]
Day 200 – Royal Baby So today the nation went mental at the announcement of the baby of Kate and William, the press went crazy, the TV stations stopped everything and showed nothing baby chat, Buckingham Palace and theories, scenarios and chats with randoms. The film crews and photographers are all now waiting for […]
Day 199 – Neighbourly love. Today the neighbours came over to see the latest addition to the street, the first baby in 22 years, so you can imagine they couldn’t wait to give our Hugo a loving hug, it’s ok we have nicknamed him huggy and hugsy already so it’s very apt! They were […]
Day 198 – Tub of love Today I got to use my newly acquired prop for the gorgeous Lily, this bargain old metal tub makes great pictures, hopefully people will think the same as me so I can clean up!
Day 196 – Pedal power Today is a contrast from yesterday, i was strolling round a Cheltenham landmark in the lovely sunshine admiring hundreds of motorbike and snapping pictures. Today I am struggling up a hill in my quest to get fit again, i’m starting to think it would be easier to get fat […]
Day 195 – Look twice for bikers. I had popped out to get some baby milk for the little one, and on my journey through the centre of Cheltenham I had to double take as I drove past one of the main gardens here, the Imperial Garden outside the very Regent Queens Hotel. There […]
