Hudson (5) and Reilly (2) reminding me why I keep them around… Sometimes watching the two of them play together I actually get a lump in my throat. There is something so special about the bond between siblings.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
