Wow where has September gone? Thanks to everyone who keeps linking up each month, this is one of my favourite things to reflect on the happy moments of the last month and read other people’s lovely moments too.
Big Job News
I guess the big news for our family that has caused a few sleepless nights this month is that my husband has a new job! It was such a hard decision for him to make as he has worked for the company he is currently with for 11 years and has made some very lovely friends. But this is a great opportunity for him and it is time for a new adventure. It does mean he will be travelling to the States quite regularly which is going to take my son in particular a little while to get used to – thanks heavens for Facetime, Skype and the wonders of modern technology!
Shiny New Toy
Talking of new technology, I am now in possession of an awesome new laptop. I have been using our old desktop computer to do the majority of my blogging for a while now. But it is quite old and has been struggling particularly with the image processing I have been doing and sometimes just freezes. It’s done it’s job, but my husband very kindly suggested that perhaps it is time to get me a new laptop. It feels a bit like Christmas! I now have a very beautiful new Macbook, I have become such an apple convert of recent years after wondering what all the fuss was about and now I just love all of their stuff!
My First Blogging Conference
Cake and a cuddle bell
Saturday saw me going to my very first blogging conference – Blog on Win, at Winchester Science Centre. I got to meet some bloggers that have chatted on Twitter to for a long time – some of them years. The lovely AK from My Buggy Junction, very kindly offered me a list and it was nice to have a new friend to chat to for the journey. There was some great presentations – I particularly enjoyed Annie Spratt from Mammasauras‘s session on photography, it has made me think about the direction I am going to take my imagery in in the future. And also that it maybe time to invest in and learn about Photoshop. There was cake, amazing goodie bags and I have to give a special mention to the Scummy Mummies who did a hilarious session to conclusion the day. I definitely hope to go to more in the future.

I had more handbag happiness this month, being sent this amazing Yoshi bag to review. I totally love it. You can read more about it here. But as you all know I adore handbags, so this made me a very happy lady.
