Six Today




Today C turned six!  She was thrilled, the run up to her birthday she mentioned it to everyone we met!  Yesterday C remarked that she felt like she was getting older.  Then this morning, she was so excited that she blurted out with sheer delight that it felt like it is the first birthday she ever had.  My darling girl, you bring such a joy to our hearts.  We love how you observe life and share your thoughts so eloquently.  You love your dear friends, you are so caring towards them.  For some reason you have the need to change your outfits several times during the day!  Your a master of pretend play, have a connection with singing and love to talk about the things that pop into your mind.  Your love for Jesus is so pure, filled with songs.  You hate it when we get cross with you, but massively confident in our love for you.  It is easy for us to show compassion, as you do it daily.  Thank you for the comfort you give to all that touch your heart.  Today was about Birthday giggles.  Enjoy being six!

French Soap







Lately I have been trying to catch up with my errands.  But unexpectedly I had a home day, my eldest daughter L, has been fighting of a cold.  Being full of cold and having broken sleep with coughing, she had today off school to rest.  Whilst L returned to bed, I quickly snapped these rather lovely smelling french soaps.  Thinking about product photography....

C today










Today we had a small pocket when C was home whilst L was at an after school club.  It feels like a while since I could spend time snapping C.  Everyday I feel so aware that they grow ever time I blink.

Random Monday











Random Monday is all about my girls and our lovely village.  With the open houses keeping me busy, I felt like I hardly saw our girls.  The weekend went really well and I loved it, I got more sleep than last year and so it meant that I was less overwhelmed.  If you are wondering if you should exhibit your work or join a open house, I really recommend it.  The feedback, genuine support and encouragement has spurred me onto wanting to show and sell my work in different locations.

Flyer no.3

This week I have been lost in the world of countdown to Open Houses.  It is finally coming together.  I've been so excited seeing the new images, printed and framed that even though I have so much to do, I keep asking people to pop in and see them wrapped and sitting on my kitchen table.  Hopefully they will come back and see them unwrapped and hung!

Cheese & Biscuits





Truth be told I cannot really justify giving up nearly two hours today to shoot some food images.  But the sun was out, the ironing pile was way too high and I needed a distraction.  Also I found these lovely Arthur Price butter knives and cute pink jugs in the local charity and vintage shop that the temptation was too much!  Dreaming of shooting for a lovely food magazine.

Our Girls



Taken over the last week, as we have loved the warmer days.  These two really bless our lives and fill with happy days.
