Over with the lovely ladies at Truly Madly Kids the image of the week is all about pumpkins and the wonderful cause raised by World Vision called Carve A Heart. It would be wonderful if you could all dig deep and text HEART to 70060 and donate £5.
My pumpkin carving skills are limited to say the least so I have picked one ofmy favourite pumpkin themed images from our wonderful trip to Chessington World Of Adventure this week.
The theme for this weeks Image The Week over at Truly Madly Kids is ‘Everyday’ and this is one of my favourite weekly moments.
Now we are all back into the school routine and it’s just me and number five a home we love a weekly trip to our favourite cafe Art Rebellion for coffee and cake and a bit of quality time for just the two of us, we’ll sometimes we get Daddy joining in too!!
In our house breakfast is always a rushed event with several different sittings as we all leave the house at such different times. It usually consists of the usual cereal, fruit and toast as on the rare occasion we are all together we love to all sit down to some yummy waffles with fruit and maple syrup.
We had our first real taste of waffles a few years ago in Florida and couldn’t resist purchasing a Mickey Mouse waffle iron on our return so we could recreate our holiday breakfast every now and then.
Over the summer I’ve not linked up with the lovely ladies at Truly Madly Kids and have really missed their great linky.
This weeks subject is colour which is perfect to bring some sunshine into this miserable weather we are having today.
This was taken one evening at the beginning of the summer and is one of my favourite photos.
Until reading up on this weeks challange I had no idea what the wonderful blurring on photos was called!
It was something that I have always loved but only managed to create by chance.
I have a day trip planned with a photographer friend of mine soon so hopefully she will be able to give me some good tips on creating this effect.
Here is my image that was created by pure luck!!
Children are a challange at every age. Sleepless nights with newborns, tantrums with toddlers, strops and arguments with teenagers; but none of us would have it any other way.
Children growing is a learning curve for both the children and parents. They are experiencing things for the first time as we are as parents.
With my eldest turning 18 next month I can say that we have taken on every challange along the way and both got lots of them wrong!
I’m sure there are many more challenges to come but for the most part we have got through all the big milestones together and they given us the parent/daughter relationship we have today and I wouldn’t have it any other way X
