Happy Mother’s Day. May you be treated royally throughout the day! Thinking of those for whom it’s not such a happy day too. x
I am taking you on a little London photo walk, starting off at the Tate Modern. This intimidating behemoth of a building started off life as a power station before joining the Tate Family, rising out of its once dilapidated state into something truly glorious – a little like Battersea Power Station is doing today.

Looking out of the window right now it’s hard to believe that we had a snow day this week and that school was cancelled for a day. The toddler took great delight in helping to put food out for our feathered friends, even if the squirrels were more likely to eat it…
We began our few days in London with my brother and sister in law in Kennington, with a visit to the ever brilliant Vauxhall City Farm (I have always been a fan. When you consider that some inner city kids haven’t ever seen a cow, places like this are vital!), followed by a fabulous Portuguese […]
I love a bit of concrete in architecture, so does the Toddler it seems… The entire space at the Tate Modern is fantastic. Don’t miss the new viewing gallery either!

The Journalist’s Church against the backdrop of a little perfect slice of London blue sky, taken a couple of days ago… Excuse the temporary absence of posts whilst a slightly hectic half term takes up one half of my brain, and trying to make a final decision on a house takes up the other (there’s […]
A break in the crowds – Cambridge. Waiting for a pause in the flag lead tour groups to capture the iconic backdrop of King’s College Chapel. This scene might look utterly peaceful, but don’t be fooled. It also had a closer backdrop (before I cropped him out!) of a tiny person utterly disgusted at my […]
“This Way”… A bitterly cold walk on what must be the tallest hill in Cambridgeshire this afternoon (possibly!?)… The best thing about that kind of cold winter walk? Coming back in to the warm again.
Favourite memories of time in Paris involve mornings meandering the ancient flea markets of St-Ouen or Vanves; or hours spent wandering the Jardin du Luxembourg watching families sailing miniature boats on the lake (probably whilst wondering how long until dinner time. You can’t help but endlessly think of food there can you?). The never ending […]
