Summer holiday catch up

Oh my word, the summer has just flown by! With visiting friends, days out, holidays and general living (cooking, cleaning, washing etc etc) I’ve been a very neglectful blogger. Time to catch up…

Maddfest

Each year some good friends are kind enough to invite us, along with other friends, for a long weekend at their house. This always leads to a lot of laughter, fun and games, accompanied by an amount of horseplay, good good and drink, and a hefty dose of catching up with old friends. There is always a fire, a walk along the river to the pub, and more often than not the games include some poker once the kids are in bed. This year had the added fun of a visit to Peterborough Cathedral and the local raft race, including a kids race for mini-rafts which the kids entered.

 

Arboretum

Had a fantastic morning out with friends visiting the Harcourt Arboretum, just South of Oxford. We had a sunny morning for a lovely walk, seeing piggies, building a den, looking for mushrooms and being badgered by peacocks.

 

Holiday

A holiday of two parts really. Part one was a visit to Arundel, including trips to the seaside (Littlehampton), the wetlands centre, the castle and cathedral. After a weekend back at home, daughter and I then went up to East Anglia, to go to Colchester Zoo with friends, then stayed with them (and celebrated a birthday) before going to Norwich to see family. All very lovely. Thankfully I had just got a new rucksack style camera bag, so I could carry kit around with ease and therefore take plenty of pictures.

I've been a keen photographer for many years now. I work hard to get good shots and build a collection of photos that help make a special set of memories. Whether you're having a party, a wedding, or any other kind of event I will focus on your needs.
