Cheeky Smiles {Living Arrows 2017 – 10/4/17}

The girl and her curls. The one who tries her hardest not to show you she has a handful of crisps from daddy and then stands there laughing with him at her cheekiness whilst mummy pretends not to notice

Best Friends {My Sunday Photo – 9/4/17}

We’ve spent the last week getting back into routine and going through photos after our week away and this one stands out and takes my breath away every time I look at it. These two had so much fun splashing about and running around in the sea on our holiday

Freckles {Living Arrows 2017 – 3/4/17}

Last week I was getting dressed when a very excited little girl came running in screaming with excitement at having freckles from the sun. I don’t think I’ve seen her so excited about something for a long time and she was running from room to room yelling about her freckles from the sun

Waterfalls {My Sunday Photo – 2/4/17}

We visited several waterfalls during our recent holiday to Devon and on one occasion I remembered to take my tripod and remote and practice with the shutter speed settings to create the effect many photographers have achieved and I have always lusted after

For a first attempt (and one that I was trying to take as fast as possible whilst J and the hubster were waiting) I’m really pleased with it. I think I’ll be investing in a couple of ND filters to help with prevention of over exposure as I just about got away with 2 second shutter speed but couldn’t have any longer.

Me and Mine {March 2017}

We are a quarter of the way through 2017, resolutions are progressing and we are currently on holiday in Devon, our first family holiday just the 4 of us since J came along. It’s funny, the hubster and I have only had 1 other holiday in the 9 years we’ve been together which didn’t involve other people and that was also in Devon. It’s so nice being able to relax and be a unit revisiting places from pre J, and the age that J is right now has been perfect for this holiday

Beach Days {Living Arrows 2017 – 27/3/17}

Oh England you are just beautiful, you provide us with the most spectacular spring time sun (although we always want more) and you have the most gorgeous sandy beaches and rugged coastlines. We made the most of the sun on Saturday and visited Woolacombe Beach, a firm favourite of mine and it would seem it’s now one of J’s favourites too

My Family Adventures {March 2017}

As you’re reading this I’m in Devon with my little crew for a much needed family holiday as March has just been a whirlwind of busy days and weekends. It doesn’t mean that we haven’t stopped and caught our breath, in fact there has been a lot of quality family time, but with really hectic work schedules, weekend and evening working, a weekend away for me and back to back birthday parties it’s just been one of those months Β when we knew a holiday would be welcomed at the end of it

A Child Free Trip to Bath

I have driven through Bath many times and every time I have said I wanted to stop and visit it. From the car it always looked majestic and one of those places I knew I would fall in love with. In February the hubster surprised me with a grown up trip to visit this beautiful city without the stresses of a 4yo in a city and my oh my it didn’t disappoint

Pausing {Living Arrows 2017 – 20/3/17}

It’s been a long, hard few days but a successful week as well. I started to prepare my photos for my monthly round up and realised whilst there have been lots of adventures as a household we have barely seen or spent any quality time together. This weekend we decided to change that and reset and pause our hectic schedules as a household

Winchester Cathedral – My Sunday Photo {19/3/17}

This week my colleagues from America and Europe joined us for work and once the working week had wrapped up we took them for a short tour around Winchester before heading for dinner
