Bienvenue en Ecosse Rémy

Well actually it’s very nearly time to say “Au Revoir”…. Rémy is our son’s French Exchange student over from Pessac, Bordeaux.  He’s a great kid and has worked really hard at improving his English over the past week.  It’s been great fun having him with us and I think his most used phrases right now […]

15 years today! Happy Anniversary Yvonne!

Happy Anniversary to us!   This is where it all began…. well actually it was a good few years before that day, but this picture shows the view we had when I ‘popped the question’ to Yvonne and that day led to the most amazing 17 years in Edinburgh together! I know it’s unoriginal to […]

Family Pix – Nairn Beach July 2011

While we were up north for the lovely wedding of Gina & Suresh at Dunphail we stayed in Nairn for a couple of days and had a fab time together just ‘hanging out’. After lunch in Elgin we had a wander along the beach and Nairn and so out came the camera for some posing […]

Paris Trip – this time with Yvonne

It was Yvonne’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and for once I decided to plan something a little more special! The week leading up to her birthday co-incided nicely with helping Callum prepare for a big French test at school. So at the end of an intensive French speaking week at home (thankfully Yvonne […]

Well the past few days have seen some frantic editing (outwith normal working hours!) and the completion of the main short film.  All just in time for our superb Paris showcase, held yesterday afternoon at Elemental Towers […]

Paris. La bande annonce du film

Bon Jour! Firstly, I have to admit my French is pretty lacking and I managed to get by with some basic polite conversation, but after the past few days I have totally fallen in love with Paris.  A wonderful city. Stuart and I spent a fabulous few days with Niels & Alie (plus Jed & […]

Not So Lazy Sunday

With the Summer Wedding season in full flow and after an incredibly hectic week it’s just brilliant to take a proper day off and spend a fun day with Yvonne and Callum. With the weather being so fab we once again trooped off to The Meadows for a game of Tennis, followed by coffee and […]

Friday Rewind Film

Got some superb wedding films to post very soon, but for now let’s go back a couple of years… Every once in a while I’m taken back to our amazing trips to New Zealand, and how close we came to emigrating back in 2007-2008. We were chatting last night and reminiscing about our awesome months […]

My boy is growing up

It’s the week where all the P7’s first start to transition from Primary to ‘Big School’ and moving into S1.  He’s had an exciting week and tomorrow gets to spend the whole day in the Senior school. Before all that though, today was a pretty packed one starting […]

Yes I know a lot of people were stuck and severely disrupted all over the world, and I know it’s caused terrible financial issues for a lot of companies the world over…er…but…thanks to the Icelandic volcano with the unpronouncable name, we benefited from a 4 day extension to our Easter holidays in the fabulous Costa […]

Happy Mothers Day (Now with Added Video)

Happy Mothers Day! Callum wanted to cook Yvonne a nice breakfast in bed, so I took the chance to capture this momentous occasion (our 11yr old ‘cooking’!!) on film! Here is the result…. quickly edited in the style of Gordon Ramsay’s ‘F Word’. (Oh and I PROMISE it was ‘fudge’.  You’ll see.) Here’s to mum’s […]

Valentines Day pt 1

OK I’m a bit of a soppy sod, I’ll admit it! I do like the opportunity to show Yvonne how much I love her, but this year she has blown me away with the thought that she’s shown and I know it’s a rather public place to say it but heck I really do love […]

Yeay, Callum’s home!
