* getting back into reading.

Mummy is loving

* Smash! Hands down best programme on television at the moment. I love it!
* wearing scarves and knitwear and boots again.
* how cheeky and funny the beautiful girl is becoming.

The beautiful boy is loving
* singing the alphabet song.
* playing with his Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
* stickers, stickers and more stickers.

The Me & Mine project,
to get a family photo each month,
is into double figures as of now.
Ten months of portraits
that I know I wouldn't have otherwise.
Ten months of recording our family,
and that makes me really glad.

It's never too late to join the project
and to start capturing the memories of your family
as you are in this moment in time.
You don't need to wait for the perfect time
to get the perfect family shot;
you are perfect right now!

This month I am sending you to visit Katie.
I would think she needs to introduction from me,
she even took some of my Me and Mine photos from last month.
But if you go and check out her blog,
I can promise you'll find gorgeous photos of her gorgeous girls,
her monthly family photos are always lovely.


You've seen me and mine,
now we want to see you and yours...

dear beautiful

    1. Thanks lovely. I absolutely love Smash (about to watch this weeks episode in fact) but I'm not sure it would be Mr E's kind of thing. Mr R is certainly not a fan. x

  20. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!
    I'm glad Homeland is back too.

    I've been meaning to come onto your blog for the past couple of weeks to apologise for not joining in this month. We had a lovely day at the local railway with Thomas too and took some nice little snaps of us but I haven't been blogging much lately. I'd like to try and join in this month though (and I'll probably post one of the Thomas photos as well to make it count for two months if that's okay?) xx
