Operation vegetable update !

June 21st, 2012

The last time I blogged about ‘Operation Vegetable‘ was nearly 7 weeks ago. It was getting a bit tedious blogging every week about how our veg had grown by about 1 cm !

….but looking at how our garden has now turned into an overgrown mass of veg, I thought I would provide a quick update!

Our garden now looks like this…..

….spring onions, leeks, parsnips, spinach, Read more »

Weekly round up….

June 2nd, 2012

I love to blog. It gives me the chance to share what I’ve been up to, and sometimes get things off my chest. It’s like free therapy!

But these past few weeks, I feel like my blog has been really suffering. I know that sometimes, other things have to take priority, but it doesn’t change the fact that something else has to suffer in return. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I should be able to get things up and running properly. But for now, here’s my weekly round up 🙂

Last Sunday I was involved in a Prom shoot, which was to help promote some new photography packages. If you have your Prom coming up, please get in touch as Prom parties and Prom fashion shoots are now available. Click here for further details.

Weekly round up….

May 26th, 2012

As I was gathering everything together for todays post – I realised the last time I did a ‘weekly round up’ was 3 weeks ago. Oooopsie! Unfortunately my blogging duties have been neglected due to my workload, so I can’t complain! 🙂

I’m going to start with something that wasn’t technically within the last week BUT I just had to include it. On Friday 18th May, I second shot a wedding for photographer Matt Bowen. The venue was Hillbark Hotel, and it’s such an amazing place! Here is a sneaky peek shot of Rachel looking radiant as she walked into the ceremony room…..

We visited my parents last weekend and also Ian’s cousin. This meant Read more »

#Instagram Junkie

May 23rd, 2012

Okay I admit it. I’ve turned into an Instagram junkie.

Last year I started the ‘Day by Day’ project – which was basically taking ‘A photo a day’. I started with Read more »

Time out…..

May 16th, 2012

From time to time I’ll sit down with a pile of magazines, flick through them looking longingly at the photos of faraway places, and read the odd article. But you can guarantee that my mind is rarely fully concentrating on what’s in front of me. I’m a sucker for travel magazines, planning future trips that are probably way off in the distance – like a couple of years away at least. I know I need the time out, but I’m one of those people who just can’t switch off. If I’m doing one thing, you can guarantee I will be thinking about what I’m going to be doing next. It’s not very often I can sit and just be.

After a couple of car accidents over the past decade, I’ve been left with problems with my neck and back that flare up quite regularly. Trips to the physio are frequent, which in turn have made me more aware of the types of exercise that are good for my body and the types of exercise that aren’t. A few weeks ago my neck flared up, which in turn gave me an excruciating headache as well, and I ended up losing two days. At first I was determined to soldier on, and on day one I insisted it would be okay and I could keep going – when in actual fact I ended up getting nowhere fast and it would have been better to just give in. I couldn’t think straight or concentrate on anything, and I just pumped myself full of painkillers throughout the day.

When I finally managed to drag myself out of bed on day two, I decided to give myself the rest that I needed. I grabbed breakfast and a brew, got comfy downstairs on the settee and picked up my pile of travel magazines. I didn’t answer any emails, or phone calls and I didn’t get dressed until after lunch! …..and even then, once showered I put my comfy trackies and socks on and snuggled down into my hoody; for the first time in aaaaages, it actually felt good to let myself just be. The next day I was ready and raring to go, but if I hadn’t have given myself time out the day before, it could have been a different story…..

So from now on, when I feel like I need time out – I’m just going to go with the flow and take it. I’ve been stocking up on travel magazines, just in case……


Operation vegetable {week 8}

I’m starting to get quite impatient now ! I just want all the veg to grow faster so we can start to benefit from it and actually eat it !

In all fairness though – things are starting to look

Weekly round up….

May 5th, 2012

Soooooo, what’s been happening this week I hear you ask?!

Well…..my week started out a bit rubbish. I managed to trap something in my shoulder on Sunday morning – which meant I was in extreme pain and couldn’t move very well. So I eased myself into the week with painkillers, gentle stretches, the latest edition of Traveller magazine, and a BIG mug of spearmint green tea….!

Luckily by Monday my shoulder had eased up a lot, because Read more »

Being prepared…..

May 4th, 2012

The last two days of sunshine were very welcome after all the rain we’ve had – but then this afternoon it started raining….again! I don’t mind the rain, and if I’m dressed appropriately I quite like a rainy walk!

….but sometimes you just want the sun to shine.

A few weeks ago, the sun was shining brightly, the Read more »
