Emergence - My Sunday Photo 250617

Emergence – My Sunday Photo 250617 I went to Rousham House with my photography class on Friday.  It was my first visit, but it definitely won’t be my last. I spent a lot of time at the pond watching the emergence of a number of dragonflies.  It took me back… Continue reading »

A family day at Greys Court

When my parents were here during the half term holidays we wanted to take them out for the day to somewhere they’d not visited before.  We’d got a long road trip ahead of us, so we needed this day to be a little closer to home. Before they emigrated to… Continue reading »

Taking photographs at Crocodiles of the World

Luxury Towelling Dressing Gown from The Towel Shop

As a child, if I was poorly, I liked nothing better than to snuggle up under my Dad’s dressing gown.  It became a tradition if we needed a sofa day, that his dressing gown would keep me company.  These days I still like a dressing gown I can wrap myself… Continue reading »

Raindrops on Petals – My Sunday Photo 180617 Looking back through photos of my parents visit earlier this month, hoping we’ve seen the last of the rain for a while. Although raindrops on petals always look so pretty.   Don’t you think?

Project 365 2017 Week 24 Day 162 – 168 Sunday 11th June  – Day 162 We had a really fun, but relaxing kind of day.  We spent some time in our local park playing with Monkey’s new Air Hogs E-Charger Shark in the morning. After lunch we headed to a local farm… Continue reading »
