    Me and Mine April 2015


    Me and Mine April 2015

    April has been a fun month with birthdays, Easter holidays and fun days out. We’ve had a lovely month filled with bursts of warm sunshine, afternoons in the garden playing with cars and family days out spending quality time with each other.

    Our Me and Mine photograph this month was taken on a visit to our local Forestry Commission as we went in search of the Gruffalo. We took the tripod with us and set it up around the forest to try and find the best spot for our family photograph. I’ve realised both Little Mr and I are wearing the same coats as last month which just goes to show how chilly it has been in between the bursts of sunshine. We’re desperate to get rid of the winter coats!
