homemade/my baby boy/eeee awwwww!!

This is my throw it all together curry: Use whatever veg/meat/meat substitute you can find. I used Realeat pieces, onion, peas, carrot and spinach, various beans and pulses, and some good curry paste. Throw it all in a pan and serve with rice.

A morning at Barleylands with my mum. Cream tea and button buying (My friend is going to make me a button bracelet).

My little boy got Pupil of the week!!! This is Billy the dog, who he has to look after for a week.

Peppa Pig, Peppa pig oink!!!


Hmmm this picture doesn't look that great!! But these homemade double choc chip cookies are huge and very yummy.

How indulgent!! A bath in the daytime. I haven't done this for at least 10 years!! Incase your wondering, the book i am reading is The world according to Joan.

All black and white

I have been playing around with the black and white and sepia on my camera:
Its not actually a great camera but i quite like the effects. 
I really enjoy taking photos and would love to take a course one day. I bought a book a few years ago all about digital photography, i must start reading it and i really want to make some time to play around with photoshop too. At the moment what i take isn't messed around with at all, not cropped or anything. I would love to take more photos, even start selling them, but i have alot to learn. But i think with a better camera, photoshop, frames and borders i could produce some good shots. What do you think??
