I’m Becky… and this is our blog.
We started our blog in 2009, we wanted to stay in touch with our family and friends who are scattered all over the world and give them an insight into a little bit of our soul. That way we need never be too far from sharing our special moments with those we love.
What we didn’t realise was that other people might like a sneaky peek too, so our new attitude is the more the merrier, if you enjoy our rambles then stay and have a look around for a while. Share some thoughts or just have a laugh. If you like it come back.
I’m a Primary Teacher by trade, I studied in Sheffield and boy oh boy did I work hard. I loved my job, but my NQT year was the hardest year of my life. For now taking care of Holly & Tom is my sole purpose, and I guess somewhere in the back of my head when I chose my degree I wanted to do something that would benefit my future children. I think I chose quite well.
In 2009 I married my wonderful tomtom. My world was never to be the same again, he opened my eyes to fantastic food, and places and music and photos and people and blogs! I’ve never looked back since. I have to say life is pretty good, can’t complain. There are hard days and harder days, but then there are wonderful days. I’m not a liar, I won’t sit here and write a “please envy my life” section. We all have moments no-one else would wish for, but on the whole I’d say we’re in a fine and dandy place. A lovely bunch of Arbers.
Some say I only have one eye… and I can blink 5 times in a second. They say that I remember everything I see… Ok the reality is I have a useless memory, by the time I’ve walked down the stairs I have to walk up again to trick my mind into telling me what I was going down stairs for. So I take pictures to remember how amazing every part of my life is with Mrs A and now Little H. My pictures are my diary, and the 2nd part of what you might see on this blog. I shoot weddings for a living and really love capturing what’s around me. It’s the best job in the world, and I get to work from home mostly… so I have the rare privilege of spending time with my best friends.
Argkgh… (Hello I’m Holly)
I can’t write yet, but here’s the low down on me.
Born late August, weighing in a lovely 7lbs 9oz. I’m a pretty lovable character with a cube head – or so my daddy says, I’ll grown into it at some point. Until then, for me, the best is all to come!
