My Sunday Photo – June 10th, 2018.

I’m not here. Well, I am. Sort of. Half here, anyway. It’s my birthday today and we are out in the wilds with limited internet so please forgive me if I don’t respond to your comments until later.

I’m in two minds about this photo. Part of me likes the way that Norwich Cathedral is the focus and that Freya is in shadow but the other part of me thinks it’s neither one thing or the other. She’s not a full silhouette, she’s not full colour, so why is she there? Maybe it’s just a bad photo? I have others where she is darker and lighter but I like her hands on this one. What do you think?

My Sunday Photo – May 6th, 2018.


Just as the weather took a turn for the better both Freya and I came down with a bug. Typical!

Freya doesn’t really understand the concept of being ill and despite my repeated attempts to get her to rest, especially when she had a fever, she could manage it for about a minute before she wanted to do something. All I wanted to do was lie on the sofa but, of course, parents don’t get sick days.

I was beginning to suspect she wasn’t all that poorly when she put herself down for a nap on Friday afternoon, which is almost unheard of. I wouldn’t generally take a photo of her when she’s poorly but she was bathed in a gentle light from the window and looked so peaceful, I couldn’t resist. I’m happy to report she’s back to her old self again now.

My Sunday Photo – April 29th, 2018.


A rather predictable My Sunday Photo this week but who can resist bluebells? Certainly not me.


We were supposed to take a family trip to Strumpshaw Fen to see them yesterday but it was raining and neither Freya nor my parents wanted to tramp about in the wet so just Mark and I went for an hour.

Even in the rain, it was lovely.


This is the second year we’ve been to see them at the reserve and, just like last year, I frantically started taking photos of the few dotted about before we rounded a bend and there was just a carpet of blue. It was magical. And the smell! Oh, the smell.

One happy Tara.

I was on a path here (as was Mark). Don’t worry, no bluebells were trampled.
