Both of my girls are massive My Little Pony fans, they have most of the toys and are always watching it on TV. They both have their favourites and at the moment they have a list of new My Little Pony toys on their Christmas lists.
When the chance to review a new DVD came along they told me I had to do it. This one is called My Little Pony Spooktacular Pony Tales which is available this October.
Even though all the signs are slowing that it's actually Autumn the weather has been very Spring like. It's been blue skies with the sun beaming down, even though there has been a chill in the air it's still be pretty beautiful.
This week's #MySundayPhoto comes from a little walk that me and Mia went on the other day and it seemed to sum it all up.
Sometimes you forget just how lucky you are. You forget that where you live is beautiful and that there are far worse places in the World to be. Just down the road from us we have a small but beautiful area of woodland and while Aly was working on her homework (making a cave and iron age house) me and Mia went for a little walk.
Warming soups, crunchy leaves, homemade stews, and of course: Halloween and Bonfire Night!
Summer is drawing to a close and autumn is here, with all of the pleasures that the season brings. It’s exciting to be able to dig those chunky scarves, snuggly jumpers and winter coats out of the wardrobe. As the temperature drops, it’s also a good idea to make sure that those doors and windows are in top condition.
Ever since the girls have been young they have enjoyed travelling, whether in the UK or travelling in Europe. For the most part of this they have been pretty good with just a few issues along the way.
Often for holidays or weekend breaks we travel around the UK and this often means driving for a good few hours or in some cases 7 hours, in the past couple of years while travelling in the car Mia has started to get car sick. We’ve tried several things to stop this such as wristbands, not eating before travelling but these didn’t work so as a last resort we tried sitting her in the front and this worked a treat. It seems problem solved.
This week's photo isn't the most technically brilliant photo or anything like that but it was a sky that impressed me the other evening. This was taken just by our house and I noticed the glow lighting up the sky and it was just asking to the photographed.
This is the resulting photo that hasn't been edited, this was the colour but only for a few minutes.
Photography has changed so much over the last 20 years or so, it used to be all about film cameras and waiting for ages to get the film developed. Next came the Polaroid and I remember when I received a Polaroid camera one Christmas and that blew my mind. You got the photo straightaway and it was amazing.
Years later it was the turn of digital cameras with memory cards which we transferred to computers and shared them with friends and printed the odd few out. This turned into the World of mobile and phones that can capture beautiful photos and allow us to edit photos on the go and share them instantly with the World.
