Week in Photos #16

22 January 2018

Dear Friend,

Welcome to my Photo series #PointShoot. A look back at our week in photos. I love capturing the ordinary moments and special times with my camera, looking at our life through a lens gives me a clearer focus.



The word for this week has to be Change. There has been such a lot of change for our family so far this year. The boys are adapting well to the changes in their carers, in particular our big lad has thrived with having some extra responsibility. Being back in the routine of school and work has also helped us all cope with the changes. 

The big lad started his tests this week and so far so good! We have kept things very quiet and stayed in the routine at home to enable him to feel as safe and secure as possible. 

You may remember that one of my goals this year was to practice more self care and I did fit in a trip to the hairdresser this week. I plucked up the courage to go for the chop and had some highlights added too. It was nice to be pampered!

On Saturday my mum celebrated her birthday. Being an EXPAT is sometimes hard, I would have loved to have been able to celebrate with her. My in-laws also celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary on Saturday and Pa was well enough for us to join him in a piece of cake. These occasions are taking on a more significant meaning for us all now. 

There is also Change occurring on the blogging front. Due to my current difficult family circumstances and then an upsetting online experience, I have reassessed my commitment to blogging. I have decided to stop hosting #MummyShot and #ablogginggoodtime. 

Despite this being a really, upsetting and difficult week there have been moments I have been grateful for:
  • Hubby making egg sandwiches for breakfast
  • The support of wonderful blogging friends
  • Daffodils and tulips
  • Southern Comfort
  • My son saying; 'Mummy you look younger' when I returned from my haircut
  • The dishwasher being fixed
  • Cuddles from big lad (these are very rare)
  • The kind gesture of a colleague
  • Time with family
  • Time for me
