{Ten on Ten} March 2016

Today has been a gorgeous Spring’s day, the sort of day that makes you want to get out in the garden, so I did! But first I had a play school drop off, post to send and then a surprise party to attend – all before lunch!

Today I’m linking up with Rebekah Gough again for Ten on Ten and here are my ten shots trying to capture the beauty in the ordinary.

Outgoing mail to a mummy and her son in Ukraine.
We’re officially welcoming in Spring now that our Easter wreath is up.
A spot of mail art for the birthday girl.
All the space to play but would rather sit under her Daddy’s chair!
Only at Trinity Cafe can you make your own hideout to have lunch in!
Postcrossing inspiration on my very own doorstep… “You Can Do It!”
Sorting through my birthday stash now that the final orders have arrived.
Our Easter display is now in full bloom.
My thoughtful spot.
Gardening with my girl.


What beauty did you find in the ordinary today?

{Ten on Ten} January 2016

Today was a wet, windy and blustery day here in the Channel Islands so me and my girls stayed home ALL day! We were actually pretty productive and also managed to squeeze in lots of play time and cuddles before some of the youth from church dropped by after school. I’m going to continue linking up with Rebekah Gough during 2016 as I try to capture the beauty in the ordinary. Here are my (almost!) ten shots…
