sunday stills ...

Do you try to be still on a Sunday - you know, one of those folk that just stays at home to recharge and relax? I can't stand those folk. Not because I think your Sunday should be action packed and to do list smashing - it's a simple jealousy thing. Never will I post about spending all day on a boat relaxing, or in the sun reading a book. Who are these people and what do they do during the week to make their Sundays so magical. I must find out why they don't have mountains of washing to deal with, lost school notices to find and work to catch up on - I'll be sure to share my finding with you xx

2 years ....

Oh yeah ... it's been that long since my last blog post but I'm back.

What's been happening? Well lots, buts not lots of bad stuff, just crazy fun busy work / life / family stuff.

Janis House Photography has grown more than I could have imagined and 2016 sees even more development (stay tuned!).

Life in Somers is still fab, things have changed around here a little as they do but we're all chugging along nicely. 

Thanks for been part of the fun xx

woosh ...

... there it goes, another year. My first as a school mum, the forth for this blog, the seventh for my little one and the sixtieth for my father - the most generous, kind and caring dad anyone could ever ask for.

Janis House Photography has this year continued to grow with the 2014 wedding season nearly booked up and with an extended family of followers and supporters thanks to social media.

Each year I always to resolve to run more and eat less but well that usually goes by the wayside by around January 2nd so I'll simply resolve to post pictures more here, to enjoy more of the little things and to make the most of our planned adventure north later in 2014.

Thanks again for your support and encouragement - Happy New Year

Janis xx

again ...


And once again Christmas has come and gone. This year saw us having lunch at home combined with a couple of visits to the beach - the first early in the morning to walk the four legged furry family member and then another after lunch to test out the new boards. Thank goodness for this fabulous weather - I think the excitement over the new pink surfboard would have had us at the beach regardless of the conditions! 

Wishing you all a fabulous Christmas xx

quickly quickly...

...with December fast approaching I guess it's time that I get started on the pic for my Christmas cards - oh yeah I'm on old fashioned stay up late card writing kind of girl. My original vision of a snowman made of sand didn't quite come to fruition but some other ideas have popped up - I'll be sure to share as the season approaches xx

to travel...

I don't feel that I have done a massive amount of travel however every little bit that I have done I have very much loved. These little jars hold a few bits and pieces from each of my adventures, some of course when I was young and carefree and now from travels to destinations that have kids club! 

Taking pride of place on my new bookshelf I can't help but look at them and wonder where will be next...

Cup Craze

Cup weekend is fast becoming my favourite of all the long weekends. I love the feeling of excited anticipation for the coming festive season without the actual madness that the coming months bring. Although this weekend marks the start of a crazy busy period of both work and family commitments it was great to seriously just sit about and relax today. Apparently somewhere there was a horse race on, not that the furry locals who stopped by for a visit could have cared xx

an eggcelent time

nothing says Somers Arts Fair now quite like the Eggathon - put simply a chicken walks around the fair selling "eggs" that will be later thrown between teams of two over an ever-increasing distance - the team who lasts the longest without breaking their egg as the distance increases wins! I didn't capture a pic of the egg shaped perpetual trophy but believe me it's impressive - something a few Somers folk are keen to get their name on to xx

tropical vibe...

I think I was designed for a warmer climate, one where the day starts with a swim in the pool and with breakfast on the deck, where your washing drys in a matter of minutes and where the orchids and frangipani naturally bloom xx

trouble makers...



...just a little community watch report about these two trouble makers spotted on Lord Somers Rd today where falling pinecones were a plenty! 

It's really not too bad when this is all we have to report xx
