At the beginning of last year I said I was going to use film more in 2013 and it’s a resolution that I’m so happy to have kept (not eating biscuits all the time lasted about 4 days…). I really love the colours and tones that I can achieve with film and I love the whole process. It makes me think more about the kind of photos I’m taking and I think it’s helping me to become a better photographer. These are my favourite moments from 2013 on film.

Now the Country Kids┬áthing doesn’t just mean being in the countryside. Fiona, who by the way is an absolute superwoman – she’s a mother of 6, runs a beautiful holiday farm in Cornwall and writes an award winning blog! (She also has a cracking figure and great hair. I know, sickening isn’t it?). Anyway, she’s really passionate about getting outside with your kids and spending quality time together, whether it’s exploring a wood or playing in the paddling pool in your own garden (you might want to rethink that one at this this time of year) and that’s what this link-up is about.

We spent an afternoon at the beach with the smalls. Their grandparents live about 20 minutes from the coasts so most visits feature a beach trip. Our poor deprived children don’t know that white sandy beaches exist, they think the North Sea is it and that all beach trips are freezing. I love these visits and I think these are the days I will remember when they’re grown up.

I love Autumn, it’s my favourite. Apart from the getting dark early thing (rubbish), I’m happy when it cools down so we can dig out the knitwear and enjoy hot chocolates and cosy evenings in! The woods are my favourite place this time of year – all the colours. It’s going to be beautiful up there in a few weeks.
