Gosh, it's been a long time since I blogged. I started out with that initial flurry of posts, and then life got in the way. So lets try again, although maybe less frequent! First of all, I want to share some recent family fun :). Yesterday saw us taking a trip down to see sister... Continue Reading →


This week has finally seen an improvement in the weather, and we've all made the most of it. Esme managed to combine some warm summer sun with a drying dog blanket.... Nanny & Grandad came to visit for Sunday tea and a relaxing bank holiday Monday. Nobby was very glad of someone new to sit... Continue Reading →

This gave me the opportunity to finally go out and buy myself a camera. It's not to the same standard as... Continue Reading →
