Photo of the Week 17: My Girl

This is my girl doing what she does best – entering a dressage competition without telling her mum! You will know by now that The Teenager loves nothing better than a challenge.  Bearing in mind that last time, her naughty pony threw her off mid-course resulting in a disqualification, this was going to be some […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 16 / Cry Me a River

I’ve hardly taken any photographs this week. Not ideal when I scroll through my phone to choose my ‘Photo of the Week’, to find a pretty lousy selection! I sat there this morning, wondering why I hadn’t taken any photos. The truth? I’ve been busy, preoccupied with all of the things going on in our world and we’ve not really […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 14 / My Crew

  I took this photograph today; look at that empty slope! I reckon Les Gets has to be the best kept secret in the French Alps this week.  If you can see beyond that breath-taking back drop, at the very heart of this picture is my ‘crew’ – my four favourite people in the world. […] Read more…

Day Out at Thorpe Park

Photo of the Week 12 / Reality Bites

We don’t very often get family days out, all five of us. At the beginning of every new year we have the best intentions for the 12 months ahead, then things get in the way – football matches, birthday parties and various other commitments. Last Sunday, we went to Thorpe Park. It was a day that had been planned for […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 11 / Friendship

I love friendship. Careful choice of words there. I could have said ‘I love my friends’ (which of course I do) but there’s something very special about friendship in general, which makes it worth pursuing, treasuring, and nurturing. At all costs. I’m lucky enough to have picked up some wonderful friends over the years, some I’ve known […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 10 / On Top of the World 

We are coming to the end of an amazing weekend. Scrolling through my phone, I have photos of snow angels on our walk home from an evening out, us standing proudly next to a sign that proves we conquered a black run, our beautiful roast dinner on Mother’s Day, my friend posing next to a […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 9 – Spring is on the way.

My new year goal for 2015, was to improve my photography. Being a disciplined soul, I refuse to set a goal unless I am sure that I will act upon it. It’s probably for this reason that 2016s ‘goals’ are still in my head and not confirmed in writing – it’s not looking good for the next 12 months, is […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 8 / No More Mourning

Our house has been very quiet this week. The Drama Queen has been in Italy on the school ski trip and The Boy spent the first half of the week with his grandparents. For most of the week, it has been just The Teenager and I. When my kids were younger, I would have given my right arm […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 6 / Being the Baby

 I watched my boy get ready for a sleepover party this afternoon – hair gel on, deodorant packed, phone charger ready to go – and I realised that he’s growing up. Makes sense of course but sometimes we just don’t see it. Especially with the third child. I swore that I would never ‘baby’ my last […] Read more…

Penny Boarding

Photo of the Week 5 / Space

Last weekend, the OH was in France for 5 days. I’m all for encouraging a break away, as you know, but it does mean that the parent left at home is saddled with all the lifts, responsibilities and…teenage hormones. And boy, were we entrenched in the latter last weekend! Do you ever feel like you […] Read more…

Photo of the Week 4 / A Stillness

 I’ve loved the frosty mornings this week. So refreshing to take ‘It’ for a walk and have my boot-clad foot rest firmly on top of the crunchy mud, instead of sinking underneath it, in the squelchy manner we’ve become accustomed to of late. On Wednesday morning I had arranged to meet a friend for a dog […] Read more…

Dog Walk

Photo of the Week 3 / Can I Go Now?

It was such a lovely morning that I couldn’t resist taking my camera out on our dog walk today. The Drama Queen is often reluctant to participate in both of these activities but I seem to have struck gold today. We’ve had such a busy week, most of which has been building up to our company’s […] Read more…
