Me and Mine {March}

Me and Mine - March

 March has been a funny old month. At the end of February, my father in law had a heart attack which then led to him having open heart surgery and being in hospital for 2 weeks. As you can imagine, this was really tough on all the family.
The first couple of weeks in March were a bit of a blur of working, visiting hospital's, taking it in turns to look after Alfie around working (my in-laws have Alfie 4 morning's a week whilst I work) and trying to stay positive. Alan is back home and on the mend now but he's still got a long way to go.
At the back of my mind each weekend during March has been my 'Me & Mine' photo. There just never seemed to be the perfect time to take it and the weather hasn't really been on our side at the weekends. So last weekend after I'd got in from work and we were just getting ready to go out for the afternoon, I found the perfect opportunity to balance my camera on the sideboard and set it to self timer and I managed to snap these photo's of the three of us in our little home and you know what, I love them. They perfectly capture us as a family, a three, all snuggled up which we do as often as Alfie will sit still for long enough ;)

I'm by no means perfect at taking photo's and I've a heck of a lot to learn, but I'm just glad that I'm managing to capture a picture of the three of us every month. (Even if I do post it late). I really must learn how to use my camera!
We are away in the Lake District for an over night stay this weekend and I'm praying that the weather is on side so I can get a picture of us in the great outdoors.
I'm so pleased Lucy opened this linky as it really does make me remember every month that I must get a photo of the 3 of us. I know it is something which will be treasured and looked back on for many years to come.


  1. Oh these photos are so lovely. They are so natural and relaxed, and you look so terribly proud of your little family which is adorable. x

    1. Thanks Lucy. You've hit the nail on the head - I could not be more proud :) xx

  2. These are really lovely. I love the relaxed feel to them x

    1. Thank you Lauren :) I actually really like them considering it was such a rushed job! xx
