Photo Challenge: family

This week’s photo challenge got me thinking about what emotions family puts us through. We all have our ups and downs within our family unit – individuals can’t live in a group together without some conflict, however small and sometimes these moments of strain grow bigger in our heads than all the moments of love put together.

But occasionally there is a moment of pure joy. A moment that makes you laugh until you cry. A moment that helps me remember how good it is to be a mum and share that moment with the two amazing human beings that I helped to create.


Now that’s memory making:  “remember when we cleared out the craft boxes…?”


weekly photo challenge: Beginning


This is the time of year that lovely Husband and I talk about the allotment and the garden. The year seems full of possibilities and endless time to spend making them both productive and beautiful. I love to look at seed catalogues and go through the seeds we’ve saved and these nasturtium seeds are my favourite. Perfectly formed capsules filled with potential.

Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week) JOY


Joy is playing in the leaves on a gorgeous autumn day and catching that glorious ray of light on your camera.

Well, you’ve got to find some entertainment when you’re cleaning the fridge…

I have been overwhelmed by homework – year 7 takes a lot of getting used to! In addition we have more to do in Year 4 than last year and I have started a course myself – which has homework.

In an attempt to make creative space I am posting these photos I took in Asda car park last Friday. You never know where inspiration is going to strike…


It reminded me of some lines from Suzanne Vega’s ‘The Queen and the Soldier’:

‘the sun it was gold, though the sky it was grey and she wanted more than she ever could say

but she knew how it frightened her and she turned away and would not look at his face again’

It’s a great song.



the rarely seen ketchup bird

I went to make a sandwich the other day and I was about to curse Oldest daughter for not tidying up after her cheese and ketchup toastie when, on closer inspection, I realised the splot she’d left behind was actually a beautifully stylised bird. So cute
