The End of Summer 2016

Last week on the 1st September 2016 we went out for a post dinner dog walk. The tide was out at the beach that we always go to and the sun was setting. I came home and looked and saw that exactly a year ago we did the same on the 1st September 2015. It’s so funny how you repeat certain things without even realising and then end up  ...

Discovering the World not Badly Behaved

I posted a photo last night to Instagram which basically said about how rubbish of a day it had been and how badly behaved Amelia had been during the day and then a few moments later my Mum sent me a photo from our day and it was the complete opposite of how I had just described it.
