Blogging // BBC Radio Humberside & more awards!

Gosh, what a busy week we’ve had! We’ve just got back from a lovely stay in Hampshire, with a small trip to the homeland tagged onto the end of our little holiday. We had a fab time – and I can’t wait to share it with you in the next week or so. In the meantime, today has been quite crazy! I was on BBC Radio Humberside this afternoon chatting all things blogging, photography and awards – I LOVED it! Well, once I got past the terror of being live on the  ...

Blogging // I’m a BritMums BiBs Finalist!?!

Monday was a good day. This post made it onto the Mumsnet Front Page (and they used my photo rather than a stock photo, which made me rather happy!), I received two exciting parcels in the post (I love a good post day) and, after finally settling H-Bear for his nap, I came downstairs to discover that I had made it as a finalist in the Photography category for the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging (BiBs) Awards!

After six months of parenting two children under four. Six months of not sleeping for more than 3 hours in a row. Six months of daily tears. After the months of surviving with a poor baby who was suffering from silent reflux. With his allergies that were only just being discovered. My anxiety and fear that people would  ...

Review // Panasonic LUMIX GX80 Camera

Before Christmas I was invited to the British Wildlife Centre to take part in a blogger event hosted by Panasonic (you can read more about my morning here). I was gifted a LUMIX GX80 camera and had such a wonderful time in the autumnal sunshine, capturing photos of the beautiful animals. Since then I’ve been putting the Panasonic LUMIX GX80 through its paces and I’m looking forward to sharing this review with you, as it’s really a fantastic piece of technology.  ...
