Two photos of Sian, from a recent photo-shoot. Thanks for modelling for me, Sian!

It's been a strange few days. Work has not been going well; in fact, I can't remember a time when it's been worse...... oh, how I wish I could turn the clock back and do things differently!

Phil has been wonderful: helping me make sense of things and keep a sense of proportion when all I really wanted to do was take up permanent residence under the duvet.

I was very busy most of last week, finishing off editing wedding photos. The couple have them now, and I'm really hoping they are happy. We gave them a complimentary DVD with a selection of images set to music. I just found these nice DVD presentation cases online to put the disks in; looks so much nicer than a plain jewel case!

Mothers Day was lovely; the girls bought me some toiletries and a charm for my bracelet. But the most emotional moment for me was when Sian came to tell me poor Jade Goody had died. She hugged me and told me she didn't know what she'd do without me! Bless her. I always miss my mum so much on Mothers Day.

Poor Jade! I wasn't a fan but the thought of her dying so young, leaving those two beautiful little boys, is heart-breaking, and on Mothers Day too.

Oh Sian is so pretty and those are lovely photos of her.

Sorry to hear work isn't the best place at the moment, I know what that's like having been there. ((Hug))

I wasn't a fan of Jade Goody but it's so tragic when people die so young, especially when they leave young children. :(

You have a beautiful daughter Julie. Great portrait shots too. I'm glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day and also have such a supportive family.
I read about Jade and was sad to learn how young she was, leaving the chidren behind.
All I can say is cherish each moment and love your family to pieces.
