I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'


With the Christmas season pretty much (nearly) upon us it's meant the children have been involved in all sorts of activities - including partying......a lot!

Honestly, they have a better social life then me (not that it was full in the first place) these days and the need to be constantly on the go, chaperoned to events and ferried around from one function or another is starting to take its toll on this poor old mama.

I'm full of cold - again - and I'm feeling very sorry for myself.

And if another person says to me 'well best get it out of the way before Christmas' I think I will go 'aaarrrrggghhhhhh!'..........very loudly! Best not get ill in the first place would be the better thing to do.

But hey ho, tis that time of year again and having little ones means getting ill goes hand in hand I'm afraid. Still doesn't do much for my grumps though.

Anyhoo. I think maybe I should just slope off quietly now and leave you with the pictures of some tasty little cakes I helped make with our smallest at the weekend for one of her 'occasions'

Chocolate and Peppermint (kind of) cupcakes.

She's turning into a right little baker and can always be found perched on a chair beside me in the kitchen when I'm cooking either asking 'what you doing and can I help?' or having a jolly good stir of a mixture (for good luck) adding her own little personal touch.

Have a fabulous day and sorry for the grumbles - anyone would think I have man flu or something!
