Wimpole. Yep. Another picnic. 

Another weekend.  More scorching hot weather (so hot in fact we left Wimpole early as there was no shade which made it unbearable).  We made the most of it thought and visited Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire.  We took a picnic (this time with lovely fresh English strawberries) and enjoyed our lunch in a shady patch…

A lovely* experience

Well, I have to confess that even though I have not received my OnePlus 5 yet, nor have I started my new role as OnePlus Photographer, I am still having a lovely experience. The response from Social Media has been very nice and people have been kind and pleasant. I have received notes on Instagram, Twitter…

How we spend our days…

Another picnic at Ickworth

Well why not?  The weather has been glorious so why not get out and enjoy it! Also gives me another excuse to take the camera out 🙂 Oh, the rare shot of me is because Richard bought himself a Canon M3 today! Take a look at my previous photos from Ickworth House. 

A photography day in Lincolnshire

Richard and I took a drive to Lincolnshire today to visit Belton House. The day started quite thundery but thankfully by the time we got there the weather was glorious. We decided to pack our cameras and have a day of gentle walks and shooting whatever caught our eye. It gave me an opportunity to…

It had to happen…

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog as I have been rather busier than normal.  Coupled with the glorious weather, I haven’t really wanted to stay indoors on the laptop. I also have a paper to write for my photography course and that is taking some of my free time. I must confess there is…

Active week

It may have only been a four day week (which is not over yet), but it has felt quite long and challenging.   I’ve circumvented that with ensuring I have squeezed in some activity to keep my body and mind focussed on things other than work.  Monday I completed a session on the exercise bike…

A lovely weekend
