Hello 2018 and a little refresh (and my Me and Mine photo for December 17)
Firstly I should start by wishing you all a very happy 2018. Our Christmas and New year was quiet and relaxing, but just what we all needed. It was our first Christmas in our new home and the first time we have ever hosted, and it all went really well. In fact it was probably one of the nicest...

Yay for Snow Days
I genuinely don't remember the last time we had proper snow. We had a little bit back when I was 35 weeks pregnant with Lottie but I do remember it not being all that heavy. So I am sure like many children up and down the UK on Sunday morning, the girls were incredibly excited to wake up to...

Me and Mine: A Family Project 2017: November
It's that time of year again, I can already feel it happening. The time of year where everything starts to get a little intense, where you just feel that little bit busier, that little bit more overwhelmed than usual and where you feel like you need to get more organised but you don't know where to start. I think...

Me and Mine: A Family Project 2017: October
I'm a little bit late for my Me and Mine family photos this month, but it is for a very good reason. We are currently all feeling a little jet lagged as yesterday we arrived back in the UK after an amazing holiday in Orlando. It was truly the most incredible ten days and I am so sad it...

A Little Autumn Photoshoot

Me and Mine: A Family Project 2017: August & September
When I look back in years to come at this little online space one of the things that I reckon I will be most grateful for is that I took so many family photos. There's something so special about having photos of all us together to look back on, to see how our family changes and grows along the...

Has Blogging changed?
When I started this little blog six and a half years ago it was VERY different to how it was now. First of all there was just a small handful of parent bloggers in the UK blog world, most of them had come from a journalistic background and it was all about the writing. Photos didn't matter much back...

Me and Mine: A Family Project 2017: July
Some of my most favourite photos I have ever taken have been taken in the lavender. There's something about those beautiful purple flowers, they make the perfect backdrop. It has become a family tradition of sorts, we go every year. Inevitably the idea is met with a couple of groans nowadays from the girls (and Jon) as they turn...

Our Trip to the Lavender 2017
Since having little people I am definitely a sucker for a tradition, motherhood has made me even more sentimental than I was previously. That expression 'the days are long but the years are short', is such a cliche but it is so true. Sometimes I catch a look at my children and it almost winds me for a split...
