A New Direction For Days In Bed

I have made a big decision for the blog!

I have decided to move in a new direction for days in bed and start writing more Journal style posts which I enjoy. I also want to share quality photos of Sylvia and family and “our dogs” or whatever I fancy as I write. This is going to be my new style inspired by Ana De Jesus from Faded Spring, a blog I loveΒ and I’m looking forward to incorporating the ideas I have into the blog. I think I know how I want this blog to work in future. So today I shall trial it today.

I’m not a massive photographer and I give all credit to my husband who is amazing at photography. When We married John had a dream and a desire to learn photography and I told him to follow his dream. One step at a time he has studied and practised and he is getting so much better and I’m proud of his achievements.

So I shall be doing more Journal style as well as reviews and sprinkled “How To” posts. I just know this is what I prefer and what I like best and I think the combination of my writing and Johns Photos is going to make the blog even better. I am excited to try this out and hope it works well.

I’m currently in hospital and glad my hubby can take pictures and share them with me. I’m grateful for modern technology and although I don’t often get to go out and share in my daughter’s out of home experiences I get to see them. On this occasion however a few weeks ago we went to the park for 20 minutes and I loved every minute of it.

Sylvia loved it too but suddenly the rain began to fall and we had to rush back to the car and head back home, by which time i was ill anyway but it was nice to get out and sit on a park bench for a while.


  1. Lovely photos! Your husband is really talented.
    I like the sound of the new direction….You do right writing about whatever you want to!
    I hope you feel better & get home soon x
    P.S Ana De Jesus is a fantastic blogger…She has amazing style!

    1. Thanks Kim. I agree…I have finally figured how I want to roll and yes Ana is fantastic and seeing how she does things helped me see, this is how I want to do things too- with a health twist of course and a “kids fun, toys, activities and fashion perspective” etc I’m excited about this.

  2. Good luck with the new direction, and hope you’re well enough to come home soon. Take care and keep doing what makes you happy xx

  3. I love Ana’s blog too, she’s very inspiring πŸ™‚
    Your new blogging ideas sound great! I post a lot of journal style posts and photos, I’m still learning to use my camera properly though. πŸ™‚ xx

  4. Good luck with the new direction Angela, I hope it works out for you πŸ™‚ I love Sylvia’s coat by the way!

    1. Oh thanks Debbie. πŸ™‚ I think i was headed this way for a while. I love her coat too. We have done some red riding hood shots which i hope to share soon!

  5. I love Ana’s blog too her pictures really draw you in don’t they. Good luck with your change of directions, I am wanting to change the direction of my blog lately too (less reviews etc) John takes some lovely photos. I am looking forward to seeing your blog change and grow. I hope that you start to feel better soon so you can enjoy more time at the park with your family xx

  6. Aw Ange this made me cry honestly to hear you say that is such a big compliment because you know that I am a massive fan of you and your blog ( also I am the worst at replying to messages sorry hun!) and I have loved your new direction. The photography is stunning and Sylvia is the perfect model, you look really good as well lovely. I am so glad that your husband got to pursue his dream because he is extremely talented! When do you come out of hospital? Take care will message soon my shifts have been insanely long! xxx

  7. Great idea on the new direction – very exciting! The photographs are lovely, and I agree that more of them will be a great addition to the blog! This looks like a fun day too.

  8. The wonderful thing about blogging is that when it comes to writing and expressing yourself there are no rules. It’s your blog, do what you want! πŸ™‚ Good luck with the new style, and I hope you are out of hospital soon.
