Sitting under a tree in Central Park, New York. It is an old memory. The city was so overwhelming. I just needed some time to pause and reflect. I didn’t know how much nature meant to me until that moment. Via the old Daily Post Photo Challenge #159: Reflections


So much of life happens on the inside. Or so an old Daily Post Photo Challenge post tells me. This is our boy. Inside our home on a bright sunny London day. He is a million miles away inside his head when he’s researching stories for Dungeons and Dragons or playing computer games. At least... Continue Reading →

First trip to Tate post lockdown

It was a glorious London day. Our son and I made our way to the Tate Modern to see an exhibition of Rodin’s plaster models. His rough drafts so to speak. I found it beautiful. I think my teenage son was a little bored.


Looking up at a tree in full bloom on our street. The old Daily Post Photo Challenge from 7 March 2014 was on perspective. There were some interesting tips there by Ash. If you have time, please do check it out!

Spotted this huge flower on my way back from church. I have no idea what it is, but it was about as big as my face with a beautiful scent. I filtered it three ways (using Hipstamatic of course!) to meet the old Daily Post brief. Via the old Daily Post Photo Challenge #155: Threes

Hampton Court Visit To See Tulips

We saw the tulip festival at Hampton Court Palace this week. I had a wonderful time! Our teenage son, not so much. But he still came and didn’t grumble. Him: Are you happy mum?Me: Yes. Very much.Him: Good. If you’re happy, then it means I’m not in trouble. So that’s great for me. For Debbie’s... Continue Reading →


There were two things that came to me when my grandmother died. One was a sapphire and diamond ring my father bought for her. And the other was a small bundle of photos in a plastic bag. The photos were of our family when I was a child. My mother left my grandparents’ side when... Continue Reading →
