Blake’s Birthday Party

It was Blake’s birthday last month. I can’t believe my nephew is 2 years old. He’s turned into a little chatterbox and I adore having him in my life, reading him books and being silly with him.

His 2nd birthday was the perfect excuse to go to soft play. As a 30 year old woman, I couldn’t resist taking off my shoes and diving about the ball pit with a bunch of toddlers.

 
 

Cheeky Face

It’s been a while since I’ve shared Blake’s cheeky face. He’s growing up fast and my sister is doing a wonderful job of being a mother. He’s definitely hitting the terrible twos!

 
 

Easter Egg Hunt

Having a nephew is fun. I planned an Easter Egg hunt for Blake at my Gran’s house.

Even though the kid can’t yet talk, he understood the premise perfectly. The face smeared with chocolate is evidence he enjoyed it.

 
 

Merry Christmas

This Christmas was exciting. My nephew is old enough to now interact with his presents. He loved unwrapping and exploring them. He was especially enamoured with his Thomas the Tank Engine bubble machine. LOOK AT THAT FACE.

 
 

Holiday Snaps From Berlin

Visited Berlin to speak at Hybrid Conf. Took my sister. Amazing city. One of my favourites, I think. Would love to go back. Bye.

 
 

Happy Birthday, Blake

I can’t believe it’s been a year since Blake, my nephew, was born. For his 1st birthday we took him to Edinburgh Zoo. He looked inquisitively at the animals, crying when they’d get too close. I love this little boy so much. 11 days until we go to Florida on a family holiday…

 
 

Special People

On Thursday I bought a lens. The first lens I’ve bought in 4 years! I now own Canon’s L series 24mm ƒ1.4. I don’t normally like wide lenses, but I find ’em handy for weddings and I’m way too comfortable with the 50mm.

I took a couple of test shots at my gran’s house, which turned out to be quite special as I caught her happily interacting with my nephew, Blake, after being upset about her ill health. I love my family.

 
 

My Nephew, Blake

Words can’t express my love for this little boy.

 
 

Gran’s 83rd Birthday

My Gran had a bad fall. We were all set to head to Mar Hall for afternoon tea (my favourite place for cake, coffee and sandwiches!), but at 83 the fall badly impacted her back. As a result, we celebrated my Gran’s 83rd birthday from her house.

There was still cake. Chocolate. And I got to see my nephew, Blake. Any day that involves chocolate cake and my nephew is a good day. Happy birthday, Gran.

 
 

Baby Blake

Once a week I will drive through to Edinburgh to spend the day with my nephew, Blake. Yesterday we visited Craigmillar Castle, Blake’s first history trip! Doesn’t he look happy?
