Looking Back: a year of blogging

Merry Christmas this year (as ever, we ended up being too busy to post!) but we’re just in time to offer you a very happy New Year!

E was displaying homemade jam jar planters, while B was sharing her favourite quotes


B was fossil hunting on the shores of Rutland Water and E was doodling with pancakes


B spent some time reflecting through a lens and E was reporting back from holidaying in East Sussex

    I love blog reviews at the end of the year – such a nice way to remind ourselves as writers of the adventures we’ve had, and a good chance as a reader to catch up on anything we might have missed. Happy New Year!
