Hello.  I’m a 39 year old mother of two (frankly beautiful) children and am married to the best husband in the world (Carlsberg don’t make husbands, but if they did……).  I started this blog in January 2008 with the following aims:

1.  To improve my photography

2.  To learn a new skill (the subtle art of blogging)

3.  To have a pictorial record to look back on at the end of the year.

4.  To prove to myself that once I’ve started something I can jolly well finish it!!

I think I achieved most of those things but I’ve enjoyed doing it so much that I’m just going to carry on.  The thing that could always use more work is my photography – I plan to make this the year that I use the manual a bit more!

The picture below isn’t very recent (2003) but shows me and him doing what we did best before we had children!

Look forward to hearing from you, Barbara xxx

  2. Hello,

    My name is Kathy, I work with Direct Buy and I am interested in purchasing a link on your fashion website.

    Your site looks great and, if possible, I would love to be part of your blogroll. Would you please let me know how much you would charge for a basic text link on your homepage?

    Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Kind regards,


  3. Hi Barbara,

    I am the lucky recipient of your first Secret Post Club parcel. I did laugh when I saw the postcode – you are just down the road!!

    Thank you very much for such a thoughtful gift, particularly the cook book. I love reading (and collecting, not necessarily using) cookbooks and the girls love to cook with me, but I have never bought a book for cooking with the kids – brilliant.

    Take care,

    Kate x

  4. I really enjoy your website and want to take a moment of your time to inquire about any guest posting opportunities that you may have on your blog. I’ve written an informational and educational article on the importance of early childhood education that I believe your readers of (https://bsouth.wordpress.com/) would be interested in.

    Thank you in advance for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.
