Photos of the Week

I take a lot of photographs and I don’t like to bombard social media with all of them so there are lots of pics that I love but don’t share. That’s one of the reasons why I am really enjoying doing these blog posts.

Here are just a few of my favourite photographs/moments from the last week.

Last Saturday we went to Tattershall Farm Park with my side of the family. It was a lovely day. The sun was shining and I just love seeing how Samuel and his cousin Henry interact with each other. Look at them here holding hands and walking so nicely with Nanna.

Samuel and I went to play at Nanna and Grandads house which of course meant getting in the sandpit. Samuel got wet through and covered in sand so we gave him a bowl bath. He loved it obviously.

Samuel and Henry again. This time they are watching the cars go past and waving to them. Two peas in a pod!

Samuel had the best nap when we went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Monday. Thankfully he didn’t miss too many of the animals as he slept during lunch. I don’t get many sleeping photos now as he prefers the room to be dark or he sleeps in the car so I just had to take a pic.

The sand fiend. Seriously he is obsessed. I think I have said that before but it’s true. Give the boy a sandpit and he is happy.

Playing football with Nanna. Of course Nanna is still in her heels. She once walked up the Heights of Abraham in Matlock in her heels.

There we go my weekly round up. See you next week!

Photos of the week

Here are some of the things we have been up to this week.

Samuels first sink bath. I love this in black and white especially because my Grandparents caravan is like something from the 70’s. Samuel loved it. I’m sure he could have stayed in there all night.

Mr chatterbox at it again telling Evvy a right tale. She clearly has no idea what has got him so animated but she entertains him anyway.

This is me as a toddler. My mum sent it to me as she said she could see a bit of Samuel in it. Lee said it’s because I look like a boy. Umm!!

Cheeky boy! He is obsessed with climbing up slides. He then lays on his tummy and slides back down legs first. He is such a daredevil and I hope he keeps his adventurous side.

When you live somewhere for most of your life you forget what a lovely place it can be. We had a nice walk round the castle grounds and down by the river. I think the sunshine helps make everything seem lovely.

I’m actually really enjoying doing these posts as I love looking through photos.

Photos of the week

A few days later than I originally planned but we have had a busy weekend. Here are some of the things we were up to last week.

Last Saturday Lee was at Pistons in the Park with our Mini club so Samuel and I went to meet him there. There were lots of cars on display as well as some quad bikes, which Samuel got to sit on. He absolutely loved it. His face in this picture just shows how interested he was.

Samuel loves ice-cream and here he is having a taste of my Jammy Dodger flavour gelato. It really was delicious and Samuel thought so too.

The sand fiend is at it again. He just can’t get enough of the stuff. Here he is at Whisby after we had had a play in their new soft play barn.

Samuel in a net swing with 2 of his best friends George and Evelyn. He loves other children especially older ones that he can follow around.

Having fish and chips with Samuels Great Nanna and Grandad. Samuel is eating fishcake here and he loved the mushy peas. We had such a lovely time with my Grandparents.

We are having such a lovely summer together I can’t believe it’s nearly over.


Holiday Week!

Playing catch up with my Filofax this week as it’s just been crazy since we got back off holiday. Just finished decorating my Cornwall page in my Paperchase planner.  


I have made use of those little pictures you get when you have your photographs printed online. I decided to cut them out and use them as stickers to add a more personal touch to the weeks page.  


Very happy with the results! 😀
