Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together.

Saturday 8th July 2017 

After a slow morning we headed out to somewhere new, Selborne Common, which was a National Trust area. We wanted to explore somewhere new, and this gave us that. It was a lovely place to explore, we didn’t have a clue where we were going, and what route we were on, buy hey ho!!

Tylers face in this picture!! He said he was thinking about which route to take…..I’m not so sure!!

This was the view when you reached the top of the path, the rooftops of Selborne village. We sat here and had our lunch. 

Hubby captured this shot, here’s me capturing the kids and Gus had to be right near me at all times (unless he spots a squirrel!!) I didn’t even realise he was here. 

Here’s the result of my picture taking, I’m experimenting with a new lens, so bare with me on the picture front!!

These two have such a love hate relationship, one min they love each other and are having the biggest laugh together, the next minute it’s war!!! No child was hurting in this picture

This picture is showing Tyler peeping around the trees…..only to be greeted to a herd of cows hidden in the trees……..and a BULL!

So I got a chance to try out my new lens, which I love as it captures them so much sharper. 

Of course my furry beast couldn’t be left out! 

Lily wanted to get a picture of me and Kev, this was the result! She did good, and I love seeing them enjoy taking photos too.

My little ninjas, they came up with a great game, everyone was having fun, everyone was playing, but it nearly ended up with a child being blinded. I always hate moaning about them playing with sticks. Poor Lily who wasn’t even in the argument, nearly had her eye on the end of a stick after this game. She was millimetres away and I saw it happen. It was SO close. 

So if you saw my lovely family photo on Saturday, the walk wasn’t as idyllic than it looks!! 


However we will be back, and we will return to this pretty village, and explore some more. 

Sunday 9th July 2017

So today wasn’t as adventurous, we had loads of housework to do, and jobs to get done, so after swimming lessons were over with, and some coffee in my system we got on with it! 

I had cookies, the kids had ice cream, for some reason Gus was wishful thinking! 

Does anyone remember these? I had these when I was a child, and still taste as yummy and now the kids love them too! They come in a little yogurt pot, and taste of caramel. 


This afternoon the kids spotted the Project 365 photobook from 2015, so that had to be todays photo. Taking a photo a day is a hard work, but it is moments like this that make it all worth it.  They were looking through it together, remembering all the memories from 2015. I’ve been doing it 2.5 years now! Keep up with me on Instagram 

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.
