I know long time no see........ 4 months?! The bloggers cardinal sin. However, sometimes real life takes over and the cyber world takes a side step and I am happy with that. Life here has been go go go as always and time is hard to find - as the kids grow so does their energy and needs and I have also started working again part time which has been fantastic. As much as I love being at home with the brood, and I know how very lucky I am to have that choice, it has been a breath of fresh air to get some time in a different environment with my 'grown up' hat on! Like everything it is all about that holy grail we are forever searching for - balance.

I've always had a thing about birds of prey. Dorky it may be but they are magic. Magic I tell you. This is a Harris Hawk at Escot Park. Sadly not wild.....

This is definitely going to end in tears!

What happens to little boys who run off and cannot be found......



Hope's birthday. Was so proud of the team - they walked from the bottom right the way up to Culmstock Beacon with the promise of brownies at the top. This is NO mean feet (scuse the pun) for a 2 and 4 year old!



nappy wedgy. Again, this is at the amazing Boheme. Got a party to organise? Or large family holiday to book? The ideal location.
