new photo tricks

I have just been reading through the posts I've missed lately & found this site Dumpr as suggested by Sian. I have had a quick go with one of my favourite photos of Jake & I love it!! I will be playing some more on this site soon :)
Thanks Sian :))

I need this holiday!

At last its finally time for us to go on our trip to South Wales! We have been looking forward to this for so long. Its been a stressful couple of months & I am completely drained of energy & enthusiasm so keep your fingers crossed I find some mojo while I'm down there :)
We are staying in Tenby for 4 nights next week but before than we are travelling to Swansea tomorrow to see Neils daughter Michelle & her fiance Gareth whom we haven't seen for months! They have kindly offered to put us up for a couple of nights to extend our break.
I am so looking forward to getting to a beach & just relaxing (weather permitting of course!!) & Jake can't wait to see his big Sis!
The only downside is that I will miss the beginning of Shimelles "Learn Something New in September" class. I did this class last year & thoroughly enjoyed it ... and I actually finished it!! I will be taking lots of photos & notes though so it won't take too long to catch up when I get home :)

See you next week (I'll bring you a stick of rock)

Hello blog

...............still here? lol

Me & my boy went to Ironbridge yesterday. I had promised him we could go while he was on school hols because he didn't go on the school trip in June (I didn't think he was ready for an overnight trip yet). Its only 10 mins away so we hopped on the bus, another of Jakes fave things to do, and went to Enginuity for some interactive fun. It was a fair old walk down to Ironbridge itself so we stopped at a pub for lunch! The rest of the afternoon was a lovely wander around the bridge & Jake was chuffed to find a couple of books in a charity shop.

mmmmm........... really should think about losing weight!!

My little bookworm :-))

I love perspectives
