2015 Week 12 Day 6 – Yesterday at the show I bought an xrite ColorChecker passport to help with white balance, as it was reduced a lot. I am not really sire how to use it! Certainly not like this. Hard to get a 2 year old to hold it properly!!! So we tried outside, […]
2015 Week 12 Day 5 – Today I went up to The Photography Show in Birmingham, where I met up with a friend and together we listed to a couple of talks and wandered around the stands to see what was on offer. Thankfully, I did not get too tempted to spend lots of money; […]
2015 Week 12 Day 4 – My husband went off to run a half marathon this morning leaving me with the 4 kids and another little friend. They had a slow start and amused themselves over breakfast with some crafts. Before taking themselves out to the garden to sit on deck chairs and partake of […]
2015 Week 12 Day 3 – This guy will be 9 in a week and so I thought he had better have a hair cut before the big day!
2015 Week 12 Day 2 – Today we experienced a solar eclipse when the Moon more or less lined up between the Sun and the Earth and blocked out the Sun’s light. Well, we sort of experienced it, but it was so cloudy that we didn’t actually see anything! Anyway, even for this partial eclipse, […]
2015 Week 12 Day 1 – Willow’s Willow tree, looking very strong and healthy. We will have to show Aunt Fiona, who gave it to her when she was born.

2015 Week 11 Day 6 – Alexei decided to do extra homework today, having also got ready for bed unprompted. Wonder what’s got into him? Then Felix decided to tidy up and clean the kitchen table. Wonder what’s got into him? Meanwhile, I know what’s got into Willow. The rage!
2015 Week 11 Day 4 – Mother’s Day, for us in the UK. Here are the lovely cards that I received from my kiddies. Barnaby drew me a picture of his cabin bed (as you do), Felix an apple tree in blossom, Alexei a cup of tea card with a real teabag and Willow, A […]
2015 Week 11 Day 5 – Willow decided to help me make my supper tonight – I wanted to chop these vegetables to add to a curry. She sat and patiently peeled cabbage leaves off one by one! I think she found it therapeutic. I found it immensely helpful. She then found a coat that […]
