It’s April…the middle of April in fact, which means that it’s been over two months since my last blog entry. Shocking… In those two months lots has happened, photos have been taken and time has just sped by so quickly. Is that a symptom of getting older? I feel like it was years since we were on holiday in the USA, when in reality it’s only six months…

So what’s happening…well…we decided to move house! It wasn’t something we ever thought we would be doing this year or maybe even next year, but we started viewing houses just to ‘see’ and the third house was just perfect. I think it’s safe to write about now because we are far far down the line with paperwork, searches, mortgage applications and transfer deeds e.t.c but you just never know what might happen. So fingers crossed… The house we are moving to is only ten minutes away from where we are now, but a different side of town heading towards the village that I grew up in. It’s bigger…four bedrooms, more space and just in the best condition to move into which is good when things are so hectic in other areas of our lives!

I’m halfway through my first year as a Social Work Student, courtesy of my employer who is footing the bill… That has been a challenge in itself, getting back into essay writing, balancing deadlines, going to tutorials…but it’s fun and I love being back on the education scene. We’ve already done a Wedding this year (sneak peak below) at a new location for us which was a great adventure, and we have a couple more lined up but we’re much quieter this year as I want to focus on the fun photography (and studying!)

So there we go…a few photos taken here and there, meadow trips, garden improvements….it still amazes me how in three years we’ve gone from a blank slate of a garden, a small patch of dirt…to an established amount of plants and shrubs. I think that’s one of the sadder things about moving, for us, although we’re moving upwards on the housing ladder, we’re not moving to a brand new house where we can decide how everything is going to be. Regardless though, we’ve done that once – don’t want to go back to the days of snagging and decorating cracks again!

“Hello Spring”

I don’t know why I’ve found it harder to blog weekly this year compared to when I was blogging daily last year! It has been a while – but I have taken lots of photographs I just haven’t had the time to share them. I’ve been battling a cold and whilst that was attacking me the flu decided to hit on Friday night giving me a delightful bank holiday weekend of minimal sleep – what hurt even more was that chocolate is making me cough so no Easter eggs here (sort of!)


I ended up trying to sleep on the sofa which didn’t really work out especially when Maisy thought it would be great fun to join me…


Today however I decided it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself and as the temperature hit 16 degrees c it was perfect weather for getting out there and enjoying the sun. We took Maisy to the meadow where she met up with Buddy and they tore around like crazy pretending that they hadn’t seen each other the day before. Buddy taught her how to get confident with the water and with a lot of tennis ball coaxing she was in and out of it constantly!

We’ve worked a bit on the garden, our Rhubarb is growing nicely and even waves at us when we look out the bedroom window (it is a bit windy!) We have a Clematis left to plant and just finished planting our Bay Tree yesterday..

Maisy has more or less behaved herself although there have been a few dubious moments. She has adopted a new chair, one we more or less use for putting things on. It’s the smallest chair in the house but she insists on squishing her butt into it..

And that’s about it for the last few weeks photographs. We photographed my Parents open day and likely if you follow facebook you will have seen a few updates about that. Bring on the sunshine for more outdoors photography – and Happy Easter!
