So the past week has been all about Halloween and Bonfire night. Seeing as though I am incapable of taking a decent picture of fireworks, here is Katie on Halloween with her stash of sweets, dressed as Harley Quinn. Hope you had a great Halloween and enjoyed the fireworks this evening.
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.
One of the many activities you could do on our recent holiday to Ikos Olivia in Greece, was to hire a bike. On our second day the husband and the teen went off and explored the surrounding area. They came across this beautiful yet tiny church. I wonder how many they manage to fit in for Sunday Service ?
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.
This is my husband wrapped up in what I like to call a large piece of tin foil. It was just after he had finished his second competitive 10k last week, at Oulton Park in the beautiful Cheshire countryside. He came a very impressive 34th out of 400 runners with a time of 43 minutes and 32 seconds. Well done love.
The husband and I have just returned from a fantastic break away in the city of Chester. This photo sums up Chester for me. The city is full of beautiful buildings steeped in so much history.
I am cheating a little with having 2 Sunday photos this week. Both of this pictures were taken last Sunday at Centerparcs when husband and I went for a gorgeous snowy walk in the forest.
With Christmas fast approaching, I have been thinking about all the times we have visited Father Christmas. This picture was taken at Centerparcs on Christmas Eve in 2011. Every trip to see Father Christmas is special to a child, but this trip had the extra sparkle.
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 we would be waking up on Christmas day in Centerparcs.… 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 a picture.… Continue reading
