It’s been a while…

I’m back!

I’ve been away.

I’ve had an extended holiday from blog writing but I think I have taken part in enough craft / home projects to have something to write about now and what with the colder nights and lack of tv to watch, what better thing to do than get blogging!

I wonder what has been going on in the blogging world.

Camera Shy





Sitting here on this cold miserable day, trying to work, has resulted in causing my unproductive mind to wonder! For as long as I can remember I’ve been meaning to organise my photos and save them on to my computer. Obviously, not feeling very optimistic about the pictures as it’s taken me over 6 months to get round to it! 

Unsurprisingly though, it have spent a lovely hour or so reliving past memories of holidays from 2013.

The reason for my reluctant nature is due to the fact that as a birthday present, my boyfriend, brought me a photography course. I found the day very enjoyable and mind boggling at the same time! Since then I have tried to put all that I learnt in to practice, but with limited opportunities to practice and getting to grips with the settings saw a mixed bag of results. 

Here are a few from our trip to Rome in October;


I hold my hand up and say I’m not the best but I will endeavor to continue to keep working at it and I will not resort to auto however much it pains my boyfriend to watch!
