Tomorrows Athletes?

We all love to run. Me my husband and two oldest children run so far. It is something we are now getting our youngest children into. 

We are lucky to live near a running track. When we visit the park we also like to have a run around the track!

The Gallery: Week 51:Education.

This week over at The Gallery blog hop, the theme is Education.

First thing that I thought of was...

"Oh no"

 It has been a long, long time since I went to school....

So for me Education means to me; Learning something new...

I hold my hands up when I say I've never been interested in taking photos . The reason being, I've never been any good  at taking them!!

Ice-Cream ...

Ice creams always look and taste yummy.

My kids make them look so nice!!


London Taxi's...

I have never seen these taxi's before we went to visit Lonon.  All the ones around us are either white or black. A little bit Same-ish and boring. 

I could not stop looking at these Black Cab's and spotting all the different ones. They look so much fun. 

In London, they all seem to look different. I kept trying to take pictures of them but they move so quickly. As soon as I took a picture, they had gone. Leaving a plain picture of the road, lol. 

I manage to snap a few pictures of these cabs when the traffic had come to a stand still. So much easier. Not sure why I did not think of this sooner!

I would love to take a ride in one of these. I must go back again soon and think of where we would need to travel too. 

Why is it I never see cool taxis like this where we live????

Have you been in one of the London Taxi's?


My Family...

My family:

Hello and welcome to an introduction to my rather big family.

There is a few of us. With 4 children 6 of us in total, there is never a dull moment!

What better place to take pictures than on a family day out!?

We love family fun days out together on the train. Always plenty of things to see and do when we all have time off together. School holidays and my husband's holiday off work are the best days for us to travel together. 

Love these photo's I took of the four of us in London on a day out. We have not got too many to share as we are always rushing around but here goes:

Snuggles with my baby girl. I have 3 boys and my daughter is the youngest. I love this picture of us two together.

The Gallery: Trees..


I am finding my way around the world wide web and all things blog related. How lovely is it to find all these blogs in blog land!? I love discovering new blogs and reading blogs from all around the world.

It is my first ever week of joining in with The Gallery photo blog hop and just hope I do this right :) Ha!!

This week's theme is Tree:

My tree photo is of The Table Top Tree. A tree in between Nottingham and Worksop.

It is on the A60 road from Nottingham and near to the town of  Mansfield. Have you heard of this tree before?

I really would like a seasonal picture of this tree.4 seasons would be great!!

Six Items Or Less......

Have you heard of the Six Items Or Less Challenge?

I have just registered for the 3rd cycle. I missed the 1st one and joined in the 2nd one.

Could you only wear 6 items of clothing for 30 days?

Here's the experiment of the clothing experiment: 

  • Participants, aka us Sixers, you, me or anyone who wants to join in the fun choose six, and only six items of clothing to wear for 30 days. 
  • Blog about their experience together as a community on the Six Items Or Less website. 
Don't fret, there are exceptions to your six: shoes, underwear, pyjamas, workout clothes, work uniforms and accessories don't count towards your six items.

I mentioned I did cycle 2 but did not pick my six wisely!! I pick a pair of jeans, 2 sweatshirts, a black jumper, a jumpsuit and a polka dot dress. Also, my first choice was very safe and boring!! *Yawns*

Last times outfits, above...
