It hasn’t been the most eventful month what with all the isolation and Covid testing issues! We’ve still had fun though, as always – finding joy where we can and keeping busy…
Such a relief! For them and me – they’re loving being back at school with their friends and real teachers!
Well, it was inevitable really, after being quarantined for so long, keeping our germs to ourselves, as soon as the kids went back to school sharing all their germs with everyone else, many of them have some down with the cold and other viruses, although thankfully no Covid-19 as yet!
Kalyan spiked a temperature with a cold on day 4 back at school (a Thursday) so we isolated, got a test and he was thankfully back by Monday (after being perfectly fine on his Friday off school of course!)
With the kids back in school I was able to get my editing head on and deliver this beautiful gallery to the winner of my giveaway after her session was delayed from May due to lockdown. It was so lovely going through these summery photos again which we managed to squeeze in when the rules started to relax.
Another lovely Sunday al fresco dinner, complete with a haircut for Ma by the lovely Priya! 😉
We sat on their terrace as it was a lovely day and received excellent service. The starters were excellent and our roasts very good too.
I’m SO excited to be open again now the kids are back in school, I am currently taking bookings for Autumn photo shoots for families and brands and I’m building up to my big gift voucher offer in time for Christmas which you can sign up for here.
September’s Daily Photos:
I am absolutely in love with this client photo framed HUGE and up on their bedroom wall! It’s so exciting to see my art displayed so beautifully – this one’s from an underwater session I did last summer in their pool. It really makes a statement and I love that it’s an unconventional picture of their kids!
This is one we’ve done before but it’s even bigger and better this year with loads of photo ops set up around the field and entrance area. They have food vans and seating so you can make a day of it if you like. They’re charging entry this year, from £3-£5 depending on the day and of course you can choose your pumpkins straight from the field or from crates dotted around. A great October activity with the kids!
We’ll be having lots of Halloween fun, decorating the house, crafts and playing spooky games at home since we can’t go trick or treating this year. During half term I’m planning on carving our pumpkins and other Halloween activities and on Halloween itself, Nik’s parents are joining us for a Halloween Feast followed by apple picking at Oast Farm (or a spooky movie if it’s raining).
If you want more inspiration, I’ve already written a blog post of 13 ideas for a Covid Safe Halloween including a link to all my favourite child-friendly spooky films, I’ll be telling all about what we get up to after half term.
