We’re In The Mood For Dancing…


Well I’m not, me and dancing definitely don’t go together!

During half term we were invited along to Pineapple Dance studios to meet up with other bloggers and their children to learn a dance routine from the Annie movie,  choreographed by Richard Marcel.

MyPhotoSchool – Lightroom for Photographers

The topics over the next 4 weeks are as follows:
Week 1: Import and Organize
Week 2: Keep reading…
