10 years on.
10 years on.

Its hard not to think about the anniversary of September 11. Right now the news is full of recognised threats against New York and tragic reminders of how that day played out ten years ago. We all have our memories of how the terrorists attacks on the World Trade Center changed our worlds. My memories […]

I have said it before, I’ll say it again

(portrait by Amy) I am finding it hard to find the time to blog, which makes me sad. I am focusing what little spare time I have on the business right now, hoping that it will be ready to relaunch in the new year as a fully functioning, full priced business. My immediate problem is […]

The bad news

 The bad news is my laptop is slowly departing this mortal coil. And I need it for my business, in fact I can’t run my business without my laptop, sad but true. All my fancy camera equipment and talent are worthless if I can’t import, upload and edit my photographs. And I have two jobs […]

I would like to introduce you to my newest baby. There are still some little issues to work out and fiddle with but I am slowly getting there and thought it high time I launched the website and started to actually look for some business! Sarah White Images

On my mind

Amy’s illustration of our family, I drew ME second from left then she completed the picture. I am so exhausted. I am comparing this feeling of complete weariness to back when Stella was a newborn. I have had the same kind of broken, stressful sleep over the last week or so and now my body […]

I have had my new camera for nearly two weeks now and the love affair grows stronger everyday! I adore my new lenses and still feel like a kid on Christmas day when I get it out of my camera bag. I have yet to do an official photoshoot with a paying client using my […]

Slowing it right down

I am still struggling but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Would you believe that Ron has been on a course in the city for the last two days meaning he leaves at 7.30am and is only home at 6.30pm and then next week he is away for another night doing his […]

Four years ago, today

Four years ago today I walked out of my office for the last time. I stepped out into the London Spring and made my way to the tube station. I was carrying a bag with a few bits from my desk, a photo of Ron and I, some pens and a book filled with notes and […]

Big things are going to happen
Photographs – windows to my world

I haven’t spoken much about photography over the last few weeks. To be fair, I haven’t spoken much about anything over the last few weeks, just been very busy, living in the moment. Consumed by grocery shopping, meal planning, lunchbox making and nappy folding. But every now and again I have moments of pure, unadulterated […]

Stella travels to South Africa

Photos in this post are from the party we had for Mum’s 60th, my reason for travelling back to South Africa. It was a painting party held at a boutique hotel just outside of Johannesburg followed by a gourmet picnic in the hotel grounds! I was going to include this in Stella’s four month update […]

41 weeks pregnant

41 weeks pregnant We are just lounging around the house this morning getting ready for the arrival of my Mum. Her flight gets in later this afternoon and I am BESIDES myself with excitement! Amy made a friend at the Aquarium. A little boy with whom she played in front of the Great Barrier Reef […]

Still coughing

UPDATED: to add that Amy has bronchitis and some nasty sounding crackles in her left lung. There is a horrible whooping cough going round so the Dr has prescribed her a 5 day course of Erythromycin and recommended a cough treatment that actually works. Ten minutes after her first dose Amy started coughing up lovely […]

Pregnancy flashback

A little pregnancy flashback to when I was 33 weeks pregnant with Amy, still working in the Finance industry and living in London. Thursday 4th May 2006- 33 weeks and 2 days pregnant with Amy I didn’t want to get up this morning at all even though the weather forecast was for temperatures to hit […]

Mumbai part III

The last of my Mumbai photos. Above is the old taxi that I took a day tour of some temples in. No aircon but it was loads of fun! Water tanker truck. These were all over the city and beautifully decorated. Not sure how safe these trucks were but they looked gorgeous. Inside a temple. […]

Mumbai part II

Some more photos from my stay in Mumbai. This sunset is taken from the pool deck of the Hilton Hotel where I stayed. Looking the other way you can see the bay and the promenade which was flooded with people every night. I attempted to go for a walk one evening but the sheer volume […]


I mentioned before that Ron and I went to see Slumd0g Millionaire on the weekend. I have long had a fascination with all things Indian and this was raised to new levels in 2005 when I travelled to Mumbai on business. I spent two weeks in the city, working in our offices and living in […]

Feeling down

I am feeling a little depressed today. I just found out from my sister-in-law that the boss is shutting down the restaurant and so we are all out of work. Of course this is much more serious for my sister-in-law although I know she will find another job because she is a wonderful chef, but […]


I am not chefing as much at the tapas restaurant now that the weather has changed and winter is on its way. Its always a tough time for the hospitality industry and I am missing the money and the opportunity to get out of the house and do something for me. I am not sure […]

Blue mountains montage

Another flashback montage! Whilst Liv was here Ron had a rugby game up in the Blue Mountains against the same club as last year. We drove up early again because we weren’t going to stay over this time and we made it to the look out at the three sisters before the coaches arrived. The […]


Its late on Saturday night and I should be sleeping, instead I am listening to a mad man on the radio doing psychic readings for sad, lonely people. Work was busy but ended early which is a treat and I don’t have to work tomorrow. I am really looking forward to a quiet night in […]

Eating not working

I am exhausted! I worked Friday night and last night and both nights I didn’t get home until 11pm. What with showering and reading for a while to decompress, I haven’t been going to sleep before 12pm and it shows in the bags under my eyes! We have had a fun weekend so far and […]

Tannie Liv

We have had a fun weekend in the White household. On friday night we were out to dinner at the Tapas restaurant were my sister-in-law is the manager/chef. This meant that instead of working in the kitchen, I got to sit out front and enjoy the food! Unfortunately this meant that I left with less […]

Waking up with Amy and another bath *update*

This is what waking up with Amy should be about. Lots of gentle cuddles, maybe a kiss or two, and prehaps a story to ease us into our day. Instead this is what waking up with Amy tends to be like. Manic running around, attempts at jumping which she hasn’t quite mastered yet, and here […]
