A Family Portrait in June {The Me and Mine Project}


For the first time this year I’ve been prepared with my monthly family portrait. Every other month we’ve rushed to get some pictures done in the last day or so – but this month I’ve been organised and got these shots taken last weekend while we were away celebrating my mum’s 65th birthday.

When I think back over the month all I can think about it the crazy rain we’ve had here in London. I honestly don’t remember a time when it’s been so wet and humid. However, this hasn’t stopped it from being a really busy month for us. We’ve had a few weekends away and celebrated Lili’s 6th birthday with a party at a local children’s farm.

It’s also been a month of Game of Thrones! I can’t believe it’s now over for another year. Seriously, I don’t know how I’m going to wait ten whole months before it’s back on our TV. Dom and I are talking about going back and watching it again from the start, so we can enjoy it all over again. Obsessed? Yeah, just a little!

We’ve also started watching Billions, a new series on Sky Atlantic starting Damien Lewis, which we’re really enjoying. Honestly, I don’t know what we’d do without our NOW TV box!

I’m now busy trying to organise our summer plans. We’ll have a few weeks in Wales staying with my parents but I’d also like to take the girls to France, Spain or maybe Portugal. I’m just researching some options and trying to decide what would work best for our us as a family of five. We also need to wait to get Iris’ passport back and then I can finalise our plan. Please do let me know if you have any suggestions or recommendations.

Here is our family in June... (it really is so hard to get everyone looking at the camera)
