COLLINS BIG CAT READING LIONS REVIEW WITH "MR" JENSEN
Jensen loves to read everything, everywhere at the moment [which has had its embarrassing moments no thanks to people who like to write in the dirt on the back of cars]- and as it's the Summer holidays, I don't want his passion for books to take a backseat ...

LIGHTROOM FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: MY PHOTO SCHOOL
Today I'm playing catch up with a little review of a photography course I took a few months ago.  Things have piled up in my inbox and I never got around to finishing the course or writing my thoughts about it, but it was a fantastic course and I do recomme...

A TALE OF TWO KAFTANS
It's when the weather is this hot that I'm especially grateful to be living on the South Coast of England.  We have silky soft, sandy beaches to spend the day lay on [or chasing children on], hand dipped, home farmed ice creams to dine on and lush, breezy m...

FIRST SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPH: RECEPTION CLASS
Three weeks and he's completed the year - his first year of formal education.  It's bittersweet - the sad part?  He's growing up.  The happy part?  A new milestone; the school photograph, and it's gorgeously handsome. On a side note - £18 for a download?  R...

DON'T FEAR THE MESS - #PAMPERSPOOFACE
Babies are beautiful - from the first glance at birth, we’re captivated.  Their exquisite little features render us helpless and we fall head over heels, secretly thinking that whilst other babies are a little odd, in an angry-old-man-looking manner, someho...

CHERRY GOOD PICNIC ON NATIONAL CHERRY DAY
I had never picked cherries.  When I was a little girl, cherries magically appeared to me, in a crinkled and scrunched up brown paper bag with the top rolled down, proffered by my beautiful granny on a Saturday afternoon after her mid-morning trip to the gr...

3, 2.... HE'S GOING TO TURN ONE.
This lazy Summer photo has absolutely nothing in common with the post I'm writing, but I love it. In truth, I'm sat in my Primark cotton pyjamas, crunched over the body of an 11 month old baby who has drifted sweetly to dreamland, as I mentally try to organ...

SPORTING SUCCESS: TRUTEX SCHOOL UNIFORM REVIEW
In a few weeks, Jensen will reach the finale of his first year of school.  Even though I'm a teacher myself, having my own children reach school age was quite a hullabaloo.  You'd think I'd be more prepared -but I wasn't. Like birthday cards and grocery sho...
