Once upon a time, we only used to have 5 TV channels and I'm pretty sure we could always find something to watch. Now we have dozens of channels, with everything being repeated endlessly... and I don't know about you, but we are constantly saying that there is nothing on TV!!
So the other week, my husband decided we should try watching a series on Netflix, and settled on "Vikings".
I am actually a massive fan of shows like this - I love Game of Thrones (he doesn't) and I love period movies with lots of big medieval battles and violence and blood. But I didn't anticipate how much I would get into it, hubby included - and we've become a little bit addicted to the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok and friends.
But the one BIG problem is that, although we've tried to pace ourselves and just watch one episode a night, we're now coming to the end... - so WHAT THEN??
What do we watch next? Any suggestions will be gratefully received!
Fibi and her gorgeous little man Ryan came to Tamborine for a mini session recently - this very handsome little guy was a little shy at first, but once he started to have fun we were rewarded with that gorgeous big smile! He told me the most amazing stories too - it was so much fun!
Here are a few of the favourites from this session:
I've come to the conclusion that Master 6 dislikes having teeth... he keeps knocking them out!
After his previous episode of face-meets-trampoline two years ago where he knocked out two top teeth, we've had a pretty good run. He's an energetic boy, he throws himself off things, climbs, jumps and has no fear - just a typical rough and tumble boy right?
So how do you think this latest knocked-out tooth came about? Falling off something? Running into something? You'd think so, right? But no, nothing so dramatic - he was simply getting ready for his shower the other night and dancing around like crazy. He squatted down too quickly and his knee collided with his face. He didn't even cry. That front top left tooth hung on for a few days, but didn't last long. To be fair, he did say that tooth had started getting wobbly a few days prior, but it certainly wasn't ready to come out just yet.
So the tooth fairy has visited yet again, and that big gappy smile just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I'm hoping he gets all this out of his system before his adult teeth start arriving, or I'm going to have to start making him wear a mouth-guard!
I was very privileged to be involved in Norfolk Village C&K's fundraising mini sessions again this year! These fast paced sessions are super fun so the kids don't get bored and super quick so that the dads don't have to endure a long photoshoot haha!
I love meeting new families and the kids are always so cute! Its also awesome catching up with families who have come back several years in a row too, and marvelling over how much the kids have changed and grown.
Once again these were held over a couple of weekends to ensure we could fit everyone in - here's some of the favourites from these sessions for Norfolk Village for 2018!

Some of you might remember that I ran a half marathon recently (and yes I HAVE stopped going on about it, actually!) - well someone recently asked me how my running is going - well the short answer is, ITS NOT!
I've had injury problems ever since the race, and rehab has been slow. I have sought professional help, and there seems to be a number of different issues going on, but the primary problem is plain old ITBS... But because its been ongoing for 8 weeks now, its become chronic - made worse by continually trying to run through the pain... so now I'm paying the price and even walking down stairs is often painful.
Anyway the result of this is no real running for the time being, along with foam rolling, physio rehab and gait analysis/correction - so my brain interprets that as instruction to stop doing ANY exercise altogether and eat your body-weight in chocolate every night... hmmm not a great idea. My jeans are starting to get a bit tight!
I've decided I'm done feeling sorry for myself and I'm getting back into training, NOW. Obviously I still wont be running, but there is no reason I cant do other stuff, right?
Time to get back into it!
We had a beautiful session with gorgeous newborn Bea in the studio at Tamborine, including some gorgeous "wide awake" moments!
Jessie & Chris had some cool ideas for their poses too which I loved incorporating into their session. Little Bea was over 4 weeks old on the day, but she was still quite content to be wrapped and stayed sleepy as I moved her around - isn't she sweet?
