My photo

I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.

Harriet enjoying a hot chocolate, her way.  We spend a lot of time in coffee shops, particularly Costa, which is cheap-ish, child-friendly and pays their taxes.  Hattie isn't a pensive child, she is very much a busy, doing things sort of child, and it's rare to catch her in a thoughtful mood.

There's a striking similarity between the girls in these two pictures I think.  This was taken at one of Lucy's friends birthday party.  Lucy is a pirate, with a five o'clock shadow of Bourjois brown eyeshadow and Benefit Bad Gal eyeliner.  Top and scarf, model's own.  She had a good time at the party; lots of little boys and girls running around dressed as pirates and Disney princesses.  The children were all her school friends, so I had people to talk to, and Hattie was able to play with the siblings, although that one has no trouble holding her own in all social situations, provided she is given a big lump of Camembert to carry around in her hot little fist.


  1. Yes, it's their eyes. Those dark mysterious eyes. Beautiful. xo m.

  2. Such big, beautiful, serious eyes...lovely photos :)

  3. Thank you so much, both of you. They are very pretty girls; although often appearances can be deceptive!

  4. Beautiful girls, I love hanging out in cafes with my little guy xx
