Bidvine Review

Bidvine Review

Have you heard of Bidvine? If the answer is no or you are not sure, then don’t worry you are not alone.  I had heard of them but was not too sure about who or what they were about. Bidvine is the easiest way to find and hire local professionals  no matter what you are looking for.  I love trying new things, and you can access the site either through their website or by downloading the app. I decided to look for local photographers, it was so easy I typed in…

My Week – 27/02/2016

This week has been a mixture of very stressful and very exciting, grab yourself a cup of something as this is going to be a long one. I will start of with the stressful part. Monday morning and it is back to school, I manage to get my Daughter up and into school, she was already crying with pain but hoped she might be ok for a bit. I got called an hour or so later to pick her up. My Consultant rang me around lunchtime for an update, and…

Goodbye October – Hello November

Goodbye October – Hello November

Can not believe it is November already, this year has flown by. We had a better October than we did November, no nasty surprises thankfully I think we had a fair share already.  My husband who suffered an accident at work in May last year finally, after numerous hospital visits etc, has a date for an operation this month, so that was some good news we have waited a very long time for. We have just finished half term, which started off really well as we had a parents/teacher/student meeting…

My Week – 3/10/15

It has been a very different week for us this week. Last Saturday, I did my first professional photo shoot, I was so nervous as had only done shoots for friends before, but it went really well, you can see how I did here. Last Sunday we celebrated our 13th Wedding Anniversary, my husband cooked us a gorgeous meal on Saturday night, he is an amazing cook.  We had a lovely romantic candle lit dinner with the dog joining us as our gooseberry. Sunday was a lovely relaxing day, we…

How nervous was I?

How nervous was I?

Last week I wrote a post which you can read here, about my husband and myself starting our own photography business. I have only really done photo shoots on my family and friends, I have always got scared of taking charge of the camera and lights and actually do a proper photography session. This all changed on Saturday, I did my very first shoot, I was so nervous, you would not believe.  I am comfortable with the camera and the lights so that was not the problem. I was nervous…

My Week – 19/09/15

After all the stress of last week, we were hoping on a much easier week this week.  My Dad is getting stronger by the day which is great, he does just need to realise he can’t do everything he wants to at the minute. My daughter has really shown how much she is growing up and changed, since starting secondary school, as you would have seen from my previous post. This week has been very upsetting and also very excited, a lot of mixed emotions going on. Last Saturday, my…
