We were in Darling Harbour the other day with the most beautiful winter sunshine.  I took the opportunity to practice at taking my camera off the automatic setting.  I just wish I could remember what I did each time I like the shots!!   Sydney whale season 7

I’m still really struggling to get my focus right, it’s very hit and miss.  If anyone has any tips for a Canon 70D on how to manually focus I would LOVE to hear them.

  1. Looks beautiful – I would love to visit Australia one day – hard to believe its winter!!!!!!!

    I wrote this a couple of weeks ago but not sure if you had a chance to read 🙂 xo

    Hi Robyn,

    Fairly new to your blog and facebook page, you have a gorgeous little family and a great fun writing style! I absolutely love the new layout too. I saw the pic of your lovely sister and niece, and wondered if you minded me asking what route she took into teaching? I’ve wanted to take the plunge to train for a while but I also have a daughter (and a full time job), so it’s tricky to get the practical experience required!!

    Keep on doing what you’re doing – it’s fabulous!

    Sophie xoxo

  2. I’m so sorry, I must have missed your last message. So lovely to have you onboard – thanks for reading! I don’t know all the details of my sister route to teaching but I can certainly find out for you. I know that she did a marketing degree when she finished school and only recently decided to teach. She went to Cambridge to do her PGCE(I think that’s what it’s called) which was a 9 month course and involved quite a bit of practical work. She also has a little bub and I know it was pretty tough going, but totally possible and she loves it. Xxx

    • Hi lovely so sorry for the delayed reply I’ve just been away with limited internet access!

      Thanks so much for responding, there’s obviously advice available online but it’s great to hear a personal story especially of someone with a little one! That’s exactly my journey so far – business degree and recently decided to teach – how strange 🙂 Did she have enough of the hard faced world of business like me hehe

      If you were able to find out how much classroom experience your sis had when she got accepted onto the course that would be really useful to know as that’s my main concern with a full time job and a daughter!! You read different things about that online, and did her degree not being related to teaching hold her back at all? Has she managed to get a job now? I’m so glad she’s enjoying it and wish her the best of luck! 🙂

      Keep writing Robyn as you are so talented and I love reading your stories, your blog is such a funny true and honest reflection of life and parenting and your little family is gorgeous xoxo

  3. Beautiful pics and a beautiful spot – we were there last week too!
    If you want to remember what settings you had your camera on, you should be able to call up the metadata in your photo editing program. In Photoshop it’s Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I for example. Hope that helps…
