Interests

I really do not have any business that I
do avidly. I spend a lot of hours in front of this computer because I absolutely
love what I do on the internet. People really enjoy and learn from my website,
and I find that very gratifying
Since I spent the better part of my
life trading physical labor for money just to pay the bills, using technology to
supplement my income really intrigues me
I Have developed a lifetime love affair
with Dogs and Dog Agility. I truly enjoy this very fast growing Sport Here in
the U.K.. It gets you out and about in all weathers and of course in the winter
there are venues Indoors,so it is an all year round persuit! and good excercise
for you and your doggies
I enjoy combining MotorCaravanning with
doggie jumping and that makes the most out of the Weekends and sometimes Weeks
away from home.

A Picture of Perfection

Jan 20th 2011 at 1:50 AM

 

Children

 

Never work with children or animals... easier said than done when you're a parent. Over the last few years I have tried many times to get the perfect photograph. With one child, trial and error often results in an image you are happy with. And with the advent of the digital camera, dud photos are a thing of the past. However, with three children, I've finally realised it's not possible to get the perfect picture, even with the help of a professional photographer!

 

I recently enlisted the help of such a man for the all-important christening photos. All dressed up and looking the picture of perfection, my husband and I set off with our adorable little troop to the studio!

 

Upon arrival our eldest took off upstairs with his eldest, our middle one trailing behind.

 

The baby then decided he absolutely had to be fed! As a breastfeeding mum it was no mean feat undoing my not very practical top to quite literally feed his demand! Eyes averted and a hastily placed teacloth spared some blushes, as we all waited until baby had his fill.

 

Finally, everyone gathered together, we were ushered into the studio, only for our eldest daughter to put on a display worthy of a two year old - and she is six! Tempers fraying we waited, coaxed and encouraged her to act her age!

 

Needless to say the session ran into overtime, the photos were hastily shot and as we left we vowed never to put ourselves or any photographer through such an ordeal again!

 

They say every picture tells a story. We received our pictures with trepidation. Amazingly the photographer had captured some wonderful angelic moments - although we still have some trouble believing the children in the pictures are ours. Maybe some new photographic wizardry replaced sullen angry little people with little shiny happy people.

 

However it happened, neither of us can look at the pictures without being transported right back to the stress of the day itself.

 

And so the beautiful photographs languish at the back of the wardrobe until such a time as we can laugh about the situation and our own naivety as parents. We thought it would be easy...
