4/365 2017 First day back at school. Believe it or not, the eldest two were really excited – probably explains the apathy coming across in this photo, as they just wanted to race off and see friends!!
2016 Week 9 – I love the fact that my eldest is growing up so quickly, but he still has Winnie The Pooh posters in his bedroom! And I love the fact that my youngest takes delight in everything; especially boxes. She also likes posing! And whilst I can quite easily take my daughter out […]
2015 Week 34 Day 6 – I don’t have a studio, but I do have lights and so, with the help of the kids, I tried to create a ‘back to school’ scene in our living room! Willow and Barnaby had fun with me, trying out some new looks. Alexei and Felix did briefly join […]
2015 Week 25 Day 6 – Sport’s day at the school. I tried to refrain from taking too many photos – but then loads of people asked me to take some pictures of their kids! Anyway, here are my own; Barnaby coming third in the long distance – not bad going with his little legs! […]
2015 Week 9 Day 7 – Today Barnaby and his mixed school football team played in the next round of the district competition, having won last week’s tournament. They played very well again and came runners up in their group. They then played the winners and losers of the other group and though they fought […]
2015 Week 8 Day 7 – Barnaby played in a school mixed 5-a-side tournament today and guess what? They won! He did some fantastic saves and his team mates scored some great goals too and played so well together, especially considering they had never played as a team before.
2014 Week 50 Day 3 – After a month or so of rehearsals on a Friday morning (ugh), the concert morning finally came. A series of Christmas carols were beautifully performed by the school orchestra and Barnaby and Alexei really enjoyed themselves. And speaking on behalf of the audience, we loved it! After school, they […]
2014 Week 50 Day 1 – Twinkle the Elf is showing us her mischievous side as today she helped herself to some skittles! At first, Alexei was upset as they are from his packet, but he soon saw the funny side, and even took those that had spilled out the side and shared them round. […]
2014 Week 49 Day 7 – Phew, Twinkle came back again and she does have some sparkle now the kids have got over touching her: she was up high on the window having decorated the tree (and herself) with a few baubles. Willow, of course, decided to copy! She’s a bit of a climber that […]
2014 Week 49 Day 5 – Today the two younger boys had a drama performance in Wallingford, a market town in South Oxfordshire. Their amazing drama teacher coordinated over 90 students and put on a production depicting the first word war. My little two were evacuees. It was so sweet. Whist they were rehearsing, the rest […]
