A photoshoot with added “Boing”

Guppy-01-010 blog

I am the co-founder of a networking group for working parents here in Dorset called Lemur Linkup and at our last meeting we arranged for a local photographer to come and take some head-shots. During my session I got chatting to David from DK Capture about the photo shoots he offers and mentioned that I wanted to get some images of the kids done.   We have had sessions done with him before and one of my favourite photo’s of… Continue Reading “A photoshoot with added “Boing””

Our Mermaid Experience with Mayim Mermaid Academy – Bournemouth

Mayim Mermaid Academy

Eliza adores mermaids and one of her highlights of Walt Disney World was meeting Ariel. For the last couple of years she has been asking for a mermaid tail and for Christmas 2016, my friend crocheted her a blanket one which she adores, but she still wanted one she could swim with.

Chicken Pox has landed!!

Chicken Pox

Having had 6 children, our family is very familiar with childhood diseases and the treatments that help and the ones that don’t. Chicken Pox was last in the house in September 2012 when Eliza caught it and subsequently passed it onto Isaac, who suffered very badly. At this point Sebastian wasn’t around, so each time it has gone round nursery I have been expecting him to pick it up, but he managed to avoid it every time. Poor Sebby has… Continue Reading “Chicken Pox has landed!!”
