I don't usually write posts where I complain all that much. But this is going to be one of those posts. Yesterday me and Rachel popped to a local Asda, and, with it being a Friday, it was rather busy. We drove around the car park and eventually saw someone leaving a parent and baby [...]

I love this photo for quite a few reasons. But most of those reasons have nothing to do with the actual photo itself. Sure, I think it's a great picture. The background looks awesome, and the two people at the front are the two most important people in my life. But there's more to it [...]
