My Sunday Photo – December 3rd, 2017.


Whenever Freya asks to paint I know it won’t take long before the paper is cast aside and she starts decorating herself (luckily they are non-toxic). I couldn’t resist playing with the bright light on this particular day.

November was all about the words (as I was taking part in National Novel Writing Month) but I’m looking forward to getting out and about and taking some more photos again now it’s over.

I hope you have a great week.

My Sunday Photo – November 19th, 2017.


Apologies if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook and have already seen this photo but I couldn’t resist posting it here too so I have a record of it.

This is Freya and her “magic ring”. Apparently if you make a wish on it at sunrise it comes true. Her wish was for pizza for tea (if only they were all that easy). I got her a little pizza but I wasn’t sure if she would be able to eat it after receiving a call from the school to say she had face planted on concrete and had a fat lip and a grazed chin. Fortunately her need for pizza was strong (she takes after her dad) and despite her sore mouth she managed to eat it. In fact, whereas I would have milked the injury for all its worth, she hasn’t made a bit of fuss (even insisting on going back to school the next day).

Also, if you have an interest in writing or reading, please pop back tomorrow when I have a fabulous Behind The Book interview with another of my favourite authors, Carla Burgess. She even gives us a peek at her first ever book (it’s adorable, you won’t want to miss it).

Wishing you a great week.



My Sunday Photo – July 2nd, 2017.

curls rain

Even on a normal day Freya’s hair is pretty wild but when it’s humid it goes super curly, as you can see from this photo I snapped on Wednesday.

It only really started to grow in the last year and while I love it, I do wonder what she will make of it when she’d older, if it stays the same. Will she be trying to straighten it to within an inch of its life? Will she embrace the curls? Will she move to a country where there is low humidity? Time will tell, I guess.

Also, I have two new Behind The Book authors for you this month and they are FABULOUS. Pop back tomorrow and meet Jessica Redland who not only has a brilliant story behind her first book (I’m a proper fan girl) but also offers some inspiration for any writers who might be struggling to get published.

Wishing you a great week.
