Week 15 Photo 2016 – Blackpool 

Blackpool at high tide sea

I love this photo. It was taken in Blackpool this week after a fantastic day in the Blackpool Tower.

The sun came out late in the day and we spent an hour or so down on the seafront here before we went home.

The tide was high and at this particular spot the beach had literally disappeared.. all that was visible were these steps going down to the sea where the children played. The steps are part of a regeneration project that’s taken place at this part of the seafront and I think it looks great.

We’ve had a fantastic little break over the school holidays at my Dad’s. I’m driving home today, back to Hertfordshire ready for the kids going back to school on Tuesday.

Hope you’ve all had a great week x

Week 1 Photo – 2016


So this is the first full week of 2016. I’ve decided to take part in Project 365 (or 366 as it will be this year!) again but I’m doing the alternative Project 52 side instead, which means I only have to think about 1 photo per week instead of every single day. Hopefully this will work better for us. This week however, I kind of forgot I was going to join in and didn’t take many pics!

I managed to nab this photo when I went out with Teen on Wednesday evening to celebrate his old swimming coaches 80th birthday. It was a surprise little party at a local restaurant and it was lovely to see some old faces from Teen’s old swimming club. How cool is this cake? I thought it was brilliant, such a lot of clever detailing… love it! His coach, Terry has enjoyed a very successful career, coaching Olympians and National Champions, but later in life inspiring youngsters like my son…. who he took all the way to the English Nationals as well as securing his place in the Talent Camps more than once!

It was a lovely evening, apart from Teen had a few sneaky drinks too many which didn’t bode too well when he got home! I was NOT happy about this but I suppose that’s the result of letting him go off to the bar area with the other teens (most are of legal drinking age or almost, by the way). Even at this age though they need constant supervision… it doesn’t get any easier you know!

In other news, this week saw my younger three children all start back at school for the Spring term. None of them wanted to go and it was horrible waking them up. But it was only a four day week so they counted down the days till the weekend 🙂

How was your week?
