I have totally failed with not sharing my Sunday photo for about 4 months now, and I hope Darren from Photalife forgives me. So I am back and hoping to share a photo each week, that reflects something that has happened in the past 7 days.

This photo was taken last Saturday in Scotland on my husband’s birthday. Who an earth would celebrate turning 45 by rolling down a hill, in a large hamster ball filled with freezing cold water. Oh and dressed in his swimming trunks. Happy birthday husband.

Imagine waking up on Easter morning to this delightful display of Eggs. I would love to say this is our Easter breakfast, but this wonderful display of eggs have all been donated to the leisure club where we are members.  Every single egg will then go to a local children’s charity for under privileged children. Well done to the members of David Lloyd who have donated over 250 eggs to this worthwhile cause.

Happy Easter everyone and I hope you have a wonderful chocolate filled day.

He came a very impressive 34th out of 400 runners with a time of 43 minutes and 32 seconds. Well done love.

It was 4pm on Christmas Eve, which has to be the most magical time to see Father Christmas, before he sets off on his travels around the world. We walked through the forest in the fading light, until we came to his woodland lodge. After seeing him, we returned to our lodge knowing that … Continue reading

This pictures proves that no two children are the same.

My eldest would sit for hours, quietly doing his puzzles and playing with his huge collection of dinosaurs.

He would never throw any food from his highchair. He hated his hands getting messy.

As you can see from this picture, no two children are the same. This is Katie, taken around 7 years ago.

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I was faced with this. So I did what any parent would do. I grabbed the camera (there were no iPhones 7 years ago) and I took … Continue reading
