For my Sunday Photo this week is a shot of these truly beautiful hand painted candle holders that I found at the German Christmas Market in Essex this week. Don’t they look so pretty when lit up! You can read about our visit here, it is such a lovely festive place to visit with lots of wonderful handmade and traditional gifts. We got a brilliant Russian Doll there!My Sunday Photo German Christmas Market in EssexMy Sunday Photo German Christmas Market in EssexThank you did reading ‘My Sunday Photo – 19/11/17’.

My Sunday Photo

Well it’s bonfire night! It can only be a picture of fireworks today surely! We went to our local fireworks display last night and it was truly amazing. It consisted of two displays, an earlier one that was aimed at kids with no loud bangs and a second one set to a movie soundtrack.

Well it was loud and bright and amazing! The finale song was from Trolls and was a truly fabulous end to a great display! We had a brilliant time!

Here is my Sunday Photo:

And another little collage of our firework fun!

My Sunday Photo this week is of our favourite cosplayers we met at MCM Comic Con on Saturday.

We love going to Comic Con. Eden absolutely loves spotting all the characters she knows. This time it was really busy and so many people had dressed up! It was one of the best ones we have been to. See our review from a past visit to MCM Comic Con here.

We ate lots of yummy food, bought some cool memorabilia and collectibles, met lots of awesome characters and had a truly fab family day out!

Here is Eden with some brilliant cosplayers wearing costumes from Nightmare before Christmas.

And here we:

My Sunday Photo – 22/10/2017

My Sunday Photo

My Sunday Photo this week is a Christmas display at one of our local garden centres. We love to visit all the Christmas displays at this time of year… makes the build up even more exciting!

This was a beautiful display, a two tiered carousel, and although it doesn’t scream Christmas at me… I still think it deserves a spot on My Sunday Photo as it’s just magical. (It took a while to convince Eden it’s not a ride and sadly she couldn’t ride on the horses back!!).

Isn’t it stunning?

Thank you for reading My Sunday Photo this week!

Halloween, My Sunday Photo

My Sunday Photo – 15/10/2017

For My Sunday Photo this week it’s a picture of Eden at Cammas Hall Farm, we popped along for some Pumpkin fun and to get lost in the Maize Maze! As you can see from her face she had a whale of a time!

We love Halloween so are already getting prepared for it. Costumes have been bought, days out planned, pumpkin picked. We even like to decorate our house!

Thank you for reading ‘My Sunday Photo’.

My Sunday Photo this week is of mine and Eden’s milk carton elephants we decorated at Billericay Art Trail today. They were coloured in using Sharpies.

There were lots of free crafts to try and we had a fantastic time. There were lots of brilliant artist’s work on display and we met lots of talented and friendly people. A great day out for free in our local high street! We already can’t wait to get involved next year!

Please meet our colourful Elephants! Now I just need to find a home for them both!

My Sunday Photo – Trolls Party

My Sunday Photo

Well it’s been an action packed few weeks during the school holidays and whoops I seem to have missed a few of ‘My Sunday Photos’!

So one of the reasons things have been so chaotic is getting ready for my daughters 5th birthday. Not just her birthday but the birthday party that goes with it! This year Eden opted for a Trolls themed party!

Trolls Themed Party

I absolutely loved planning this one, everything bright and colourful, it was so much fun! What wasn’t fun was making the balloon tower. I stupidly watched a YouTube video, thought it looked easy. Some 2 hours later I was regretting the decision! Actually constructing the balloon tower was fine. It was tying up all those balloons and then tying them together that took off about 4 layers of skin on my fingers! Ouch!

Anyway I soldiered on and completely the bulgey, misshapen wonky thing! I also made a note to myself to not make that mistake again! Until the next time no doubt!

So ‘My Sunday Photo’ this week had to be one from the party (or maybe two). I took so many!

So this is Edens trolltastic birthday party!

Thank you for reading ‘My Sunday Photo – Trolls Party’.

Food, My Sunday Photo

My Sunday Photo – Tiptree Gin

For my Sunday Photo this week has to be one taken on National Cream Tea Day! It was a lovely surprise when we arrived at our local Tiptree Restaurant!

We ate scones while raising money for charity! I love scones with clotted cream and jam piled high! This time we tried Lavender scones! They were quite Floral tasting but it wasn’t too overpowering, the same can’t be said for the Lavender Tea though!

This shot was of the lovely gin’s they sell at Tiptree! The raspberry or strawberry ones are fabulous poured into a glass of Prosecco! A real treat!

My Sunday Photo – A Father’s love

I thought for My Sunday Photo this week I would honour Father’s Day and theme it ‘A Father’s Love’.

This is my favourite photo of Eden with her daddy. I think this photo truly depicts A Father’s Love. The look of joy on both their faces melts my heart every time I see it.

From a tiny baby until 4 years on, Eden and her Daddy still share an incredible bond. Sharing smiles, tickles and giggles aplenty.  They are both forever making each other laugh.

Happy Father’s Day to a wonderful Daddy to our little girl Eden.  Thank you for everything you do for us both.

My Sunday Photo – Enjoying our beautiful city London!

Well it’s a sad ‘My Sunday Photo’ day today, waking up and realising it wasn’t all just a bad dream. It was real, our beautiful city London, that we love and enjoy has come under attack. Scarier still when we were there ourselves just yesterday.

What an amazing day we had in London, travelling on the tube to see 42nd Street. A dazzling show we enjoyed every second of it. We meandered around Covent Garden and strolled through the stalls at the Jubilee Market. We people watched, we drank in the sights, smells and tastes of London, truly indulging in and enjoying our city.

Those people that seek to attack us and bring us down are cowards. They cannot stop us from living, loving and appreciating our beautiful city London.

My Sunday Photo is of a gorgeous family day we spent enjoying London. We had walked for miles soaking in the sights, followed the trail of the Dream Jars last August, celebrating the launch of The BFG. We had walked along the Southbank that day. It was bustling with people young and old. It was exciting and new for Eden, we showed her the sights and we hunted for dream jars and what a glorious day that was.

Dream Jar – Ship of Dreams

My Sunday Photo, dream jar at Tower bridge London You will never stop us from living our lives, there are those that will try and break us but we will overcome them, for they are the weak. The cowards that hide and plan in the shadows and then prey on our innocent and vulnerable. You are cowards, you are nothing.

I am linking up with Darren @Photalife for My Sunday Photo.
