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'

Stepping, offering & treats

Firstly I'd like to say a big thank you for all the get well soon wishes, it was really touching of you all to say so - even if I was just poking my head in with a cough and a splutter....atichoo!

We are all on the mend now (touch wood or the very tippy top of my head) and not contagious any more 'thank phew!' 

Secondly it's with a great big 'oh my' that I'm stepping into my fifth year of blogging.  Four years - where has the time gone.  That's a rhetorical question by the way.

Who'd of thought when my smallest was still only a wee babe and I very nervously decided to dip my toe into the amazing world we're all a part in creating that I would still be going. Waffling on and digesting the bits of my daily life, much to the bafflement of some, I'm sure.

But with blogging not only have I found a voice - my voice - and a passion for photography but many, many lovely and wonderful people that I dearly refer to as my friends.  For we all are I think - no matter of distance and miles.

And I can't even begin to imagine the amount of tea and biscuits I've consumed over all these past four years whilst blog hopping.  Quite a few I would imagine judging from my hips.

So I in return would like to make an offering to say thank you to all my followers {how ever you follow} and commenter's of course a like.  For all your support over these years - the good and the bad - watching with me my little ones grow and my confidence that has flourished with them.

I have delicious tea and biscuits (and they are delicious - trust me) plus a little vintage apron with cup & saucer - both a little rough around the edges being the nature of their age, but beautiful nonetheless - a chocolate lolly (made locally) and three of my postcards (hand picked) to give away in honour and celebration of this momentous occasion so that you may (virtually) join me in tea drinking and biscuit eating.

If you fancy any of the above then please let me know by leaving a comment - so I know who to contact if you are the lucky recipient of my little giveaway.  And if you fancy becoming a new follower of my ramblings then please do join in - the more the merrier.  I had secretly hoped to reach 500 by this date, but hey ho what's in a figure 'eh!'.

And on that thought I best let you know that I'll leave my 'little' giveaway open until midnight this Saturday (2nd Feb) UK time - I'll announce the winner on Sunday.  And if you want to share the tea love then just let me know and I'll put extra chances in the hat - how does that sound?.

Anyway, thanks for listening - a bit of a long one...I know.  Nina x

Happy blog birthday to me!
