Me & Mine | January 2017

This was something I was determined to join in with this year. As I’ve mentioned before, there are very few family photos and it’s something I hate not having. It’s quite tricky getting a photo of everyone – either needing to balance my camera on something or get someone passing to take a photo and hope they manage to get a fairly decent one. I decided just after Christmas to treat myself to a tripod so we could get more photos of us all together. This was the very first photo I took using my tripod at the beginning of January, at Dinas Dinlle beach. It was just before sunset and it was a beautiful backdrop for a family photo!

A Week on Instagram

A while back, before all the upheaval of moving, I started doing a little round up of my week on Instagram. I really enjoyed looking back at the photos I had posted, and I want to start doing this again.  I won’t share every photo with you – I post three times a day on there so this would be soooo long, but here are some of my favourites:

A Rare Family Photo | My Sunday Photo

We have very, very few photos of all five of us. In fact, I’m pretty sure that there are, including this one, a grand total of three pictures. I hate appearing in pictures and if there’s no one around to take one, it’s pretty difficult!

Yesterday we went to the top of the Great Orme in Llandudno. The views are incredible and you can see for miles in every direction. At the time of year, it’s pretty deserted which is lovely. We found a wall that we could balance the camera on and used the timer on their for the first time – pretty successfully I think!

A Quiet Coffee #MySundayPhoto

Yesterday, we went to Ikea to buy some bits and pieces for our new home. We ended up buying a desk and a toy storage bench for the kids, as well as a dinner set and new saucepans. When we had paid for the things, we took Harrison and Alex to the supervised creche there. We went over to the cafe and had a coffee, whilst Benjamin played happily in the little play area. It’s sometimes really difficult to get those few minutes of peace and quiet, but when they do happen, it’s lovely!! The kids came out of the creche full of smiles and telling us all about the friends they made there.

Through the eyes of a 4 year old |

Harrison has spent his life being photographed, and seeing me take photos. Whenever he had the chance, he would get our iPhones and take pictures.  I think photography is a fantastic skill to have, and we obviously wanted to encourage him, so we bought him a VTech Kiddy Zoom Digital Camera last Christmas.
