Snapshots

Well hello there. I don’t really know how to begin a post after so long! It's quite difficult to summarise 6 months.......

Here are some snapshots of what we have been up to - lots of sunny days filled with laughing but I wanted to address a couple of comments I have received of late accusing me of airbrushing my life. It is true all my pictures are edited in that I choose the best shots and try to paint a positive picture because essentially I am an optimist and choose to look at the good rather than the bad. That said my life is just like everyone else - filled with the daily struggle to find the elixir of 'balance', constantly worrying that my kids are not getting enough attention as I juggle too many balls and are we allowed to mention the 'unmentionable' black cloud of money (or lack there of?) Life with 3 kids, a job and a household to run with no extra help leaves me so damn time poor. I know I shouldn’t complain because let's face it I am beyond lucky - a great husband, lovely home and 3 beautiful, creative, independent children. Yet truth be told our daily life aint easy. I am just trying my best to mix the cocktail right and praying to god I am not screwing up our kids in the process! What was it Philip Larkin said? They fuck you up your mum and dad.......

So yes, I guess the snapshots do paint a very rosy picture but isn't life way more fun that way? 
Space. SO much of it.

I know it sounds like I work for Longleat (I don't) but really if you haven't taken your kids there, do. It is magical. monkey roam over you car, lions saunter past you and tigers roar 10 metres away...... a kids HEAVEN.
