Happy Halloween! I hope you've been having a suitably spooky time today. I just wanted to quickly show you this photo tonight as I do like a bit of sparkle. I love the colours and shine of these pumpkins. A lovely Halloween photo which is completely different to yesterday's picture.

'Lonely at the Big Top' by Little Piggies

Is it just me or is Halloween becoming a bigger and bigger event every year? I'm not complaining, I just find it fascinating how the shops are full with people shopping for pumpkins and spooky party accessories. The costumes are getting more and more elaborate as well. My daughter is excited about it being Halloween tomorrow but I'm not really sure why. I said we'd eat Halloween chocolates and make a spider cake though so I guess that's reason for a four year old to celebrate!

I've never taken part in trick or treating and always hope that no one will knock on my door demanding whatever it is kids demand at Halloween these days. I do however like the idea of doing organised trick or treating where are all the neighbours get together and decide which houses are going to take part. This is such a cute trick or treating photo. Nothing scary about this costume by the looks of it. I hope the little one got a huge bucket full of goodies!

I seriously seem to spend my life tidying up. Just as I think I am on top of it all the house just gets messy all over again. Sometimes I wish I could take everything out of the house and start again from scratch with brand new furniture which included fantastic storage. I'd also like to find places for things like in this photo. Books and cameras are two of my favourite things so how lovely would it be to have a cute display like this?

'Autumn colours' by Me

Well I couldn't put it off any longer, I had to leave the house today. I'd only had one day indoors but it was almost as if I'd been inside for months as the weather had really changed. It's fair to say autumn is properly here now and the winter coat has been liberated from the back of the wardrobe.

Here is a very colourful autumn image. I've been dying to take a photo of colourful autumn leaves for ages now so when my daughter collected these on her way home from pre-school the other day I knew I had to take a few quick shots.

Hope you're all managing to stay warm this weekend!

I decided after a really busy week that a snuggly day indoors was in order and it appears I made the right choice. Hubby said it was freezing out and Facebook has been full of people saying how cold it is. I feel very smug that I've spent the day in my nice warm house in just a t-shirt. I am sure the weather will catch up with me as soon as I step outside tomorrow but for now I am going to stay in my snuggly little world and pretend it's summer.

I thought this was a perfect photo to accompany today's weather. It makes me feel cold just looking at it but I do like the idea of all the fantastic knitwear. I hope the photographer wasn't too cold. This reminds me I need to dig out my camera friendly fingerless gloves.

Hope you all have a lovely and not too cold weekend!

'Birthday girl' by Me

This week was a very special week for my children as my daughter turned four and my son was six months old.

I can't believe my baby girl is so grown up. The past four years have gone so fast and I really do love her more and more each day. She is so beautiful and clever and funny and happy and basically amazing.

Six months feels like an important milestone too. My son is a proper little boy now, not just a fragile newborn. Like all babies he has his grizzly moment but all is forgiven with one flash of that beautiful smile of his. He's already proving to be such a charming and bright little fella. And I also love him a bit more with every passing day.

I am so lucky to have such fantastic children who make my heart swell with pride. Here is a picture of my daughter dressed as a fairy chilling out after her birthday party! It was a fabulous day!

'Aurora Borealis, the ts seen incolored ligh the skies around the NorthPole, the Northern Lights, from Bear Lake, Alaska, Beautiful ChristmasScene, Winter Star Filled Skies, Scenic Nature' by Beverly & Pack

I won't accompany this photo with many words because I've said on here before - more than once I would imagine - how much I really want to see the northern lights. I can't resist showing you this magical photo though as the light and the colours are just beyond beautiful. The purple glow on the snow is just amazing.

'I am wishing' by malinamelone

I don't think there is much rain forecast for the next week so I can post a fabulous rainy day photo and not feel too depressed by it. And this picture really is fun and fabulous. It looks like there must have been a lot rain before this was taken but then rain cleared up, the sun came out and the welly boots went on. What fun jumping in puddles as big as this!

Do you know what I hate about the rain? Being stuck in a downpour when out with the pushair and no way of carrying an umbrella at the same time. And then having to stay stuck in the wet clothes for hours afterwards. Do you know what I love about the rain? Lying in bed listening to the rain hammering it down outside while I'm all tucked up warm and cosy.

What do you think when you see rain forecast?

I can't believe it's the weekend again. This week has just flown by. I guess that's down to being a busy bee and not sitting around the house feeling sorry for myself! Have you got anything fun planned for the next couple of days? I shall mostly be party planning as my daughter will be turning four next week and serious celebrating needs to be done. I can't believe she's going to be four. That's so grown up!

As well as busying myself with birthdays I also should find a bit of time to lie down on the ground and take some fabuous photos of autumn leaves rather like this one! The colours in this are beautiful. Just vibrant, bright, and well, autumny.

Happy weekend to you all!

'Too many?' by Me

Too many? by PhotoPuddle
Too many?, a photo by PhotoPuddle on Flickr.
Well I seem to have completely recovered from the unsociable mood I was in and this week has been manic. But that's the way I like things. I like to be busy. I did find time to take some photos though. I wanted to take a few snaps of my ever growing Converse collection. I have called this 'Too many?' which was a daft question really as of course it's not too many. I need more!

It's late and I don't really have time for blogging tonight but I just thought I'd visit my blog briefly to post this lovely photo. I love this sort of image of Greek buildings and as a follow on from my last post really makes me want to go on holiday. I have been to Greece once, a place called Lefkas, and I really loved it there. I hope one day to go back and explore a bit more of the country.

Anyway, must dash. Hope you like this photo as much as I do.

'Boing 747 -- 30.000 feets' by Joseph Ventura

Last week my husband went abroad for a couple of days with work and I took the kids up to the airport to wave him off. My daughter loved every minute of it. She even took her little wheely suitcase with her and pulled round the airport with her all the time we were there. I must admit I rather love airports and the excitement of being about jet off on holiday somewhere. Being at the airport really made me want a holiday abroad. We used to take holidays abroad all the time but now I just keep wondering how stressful it would be as a family of four which is silly really as people do it all the time!

I love this photo of an aeroplane especially the very fluffy looking vapour trails. The best bit is that deep blue sky though. How beautiful.

My awesome hubby bought me new Converse today to cheer me up as I've not had a great week. Job done, a new pair of Chucks is an instant mood lifter! I really need to get a photo of all my Converse trainers as I am sure it'd actually make for a rather cool image. I think the last time I did a group shot there were five pairs and I have seven pairs now! And before you ask, yes I do actually wear all of them regularly. You can tell by how bashed up they're all starting to look.

This fantastic photograph has help me make a decision. I am so buying my son a pair of red ones when he's able to walk! I'm not sure I actually fancy red for myself but they look so cool on kids!

Hope you all had a great weekend and have a fab week ahead to look forward to.

Well it turns out that my week of being unsociable didn't do me much good after all. I just ended up feeling stressed and a bit lonely! This meant that when a friend called to ask if I wanted to meet for a quick after school coffee this afternoon I couldn't get out the house quick enough! It's confirmed to me how much I appreciate my friends, especially the mummy ones. It's great being able to talk about all the silly things you've been fretting about. I am so lucky to have such a good group of freinds with children the same age as my little ones.

In other news - tonight is my little boy's first night in his own room and I must admit I'm a little bit sad. Going to miss him at the end of our bed.

Here's a lovely photo to kick off the weekend with. Love the retro colours and the chilled out vibe. And I love the hat!

Happy weekend everyone!

'Loves of my life' by Me

Loves of my life by PhotoPuddle
Loves of my life, a photo by PhotoPuddle on Flickr.
I love my children so much. That's a given when you are a parent though isn't it? You are meant to love your children more than words. I knew I would, I've always known I wanted children and that I would love them unconditionally but it's not until you actually have children that you realise what that love feels like. There are no words really are there? Makes it a bit daft trying to write a blog post about it then so here is a photo which I am so pleased I managed to capture and that will always make my heart swell. My son and my daughter already love each other to pieces and this makes me so happy.

'Rainbow Guard' by linh.ngan

Do you ever feel really unsociable and just want to hibernate for a few days? Well that's how I am feeling at the moment. I am usually a really sociable person and always up for meeting up with friends but this week I guess I am feeling like a bit of a loner. Unfortunately I can't go completely into hiding as I have school runs to do and places I have to take my daughter but other than that perhaps a few days at home with no plans might do me some good. I am sure I'll have snapped out of it by the weekend though and be planning all sorts again.

I thought this photo was great as it is a powerful photo which provokes mixed emotions. Is it a happy picture or a sad one? Positive or negative? Is obviously raining as there's a rainbow but could that be a bit of sunshine breaking though. Gorgeous light whatever though. Very well captured rainbow.

And for the record I'm not sad - just in need a of a bit of a breather. I think we all feel like that every now and again.

How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one. Birthday season continued here for us as we were at another 4th birthday party this afternoon. I have realised over the past few weekends that bouncy castles really make me nervous. I am convinced that my daughter will get bounced out onto the ground or someone will jump on her and squash her. I think the fear probably stems from an accident I had an university though. Alcohol, a bouncy castle and a hard student union floor - that could only end in tears.

The bouncy castle in this picture however looks nice and big and safe. And from a photographic point of view this image is really eye-catching because bouncy castles are always so bright and colourful. It's interesting so see one in just black and white.

I couldn't resist showing you this cute photo I took of my baby's hands and feet. I've got to take as many pictures like this as I can before he gets too big! Plus he's obsessed by his feet at the moment and nibbles on his toes at every opportunity. I wonder whether that's a sign of teething!

Happy weekend everyone. Hope you all have a lovely couple of days.

I've been dying to share this picture with you for a while as it's so cute. I love the idea of a pigeon just going for a stroll through the streets of Italy. I wonder if it's a tourist pigeon or if it lives there and is just taking an afternoon stroll. Anyway, I thought this would be a great photo to accompany some little anecdote about my life. However I don't seem to be doing anything with my life right now that fits this image. I can't wait any longer though so here it is! Hope you like it too!

'2/365 Scooter' by Shelba

2/365  Scooter by Shelba
2/365 Scooter, a photo by Shelba on Flickr.
Yesterday I saw the most brilliant thing - a mum on the school run taking a scooter for her child to scoot home on. Nothing particularly unusual or brilliant about that you might think but instead of struggling to carry it (we've all been there) she simply rode it down the road herself. How fantastic and care free - I love it! We should all take a leaf out of her book and refuse to grow up!

I looked for a scooter photo to go with this post and this was my favourite and you can guess why. Yes, that's right I love the bright colours! The point of view and light are also pretty special. And I'd better not show this picture to my daughter or she's sure to want a scooter like this. Hers is pink but sadly there's no Barbie on it!
