I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Order it from here!

Buy my book!!!!!

Yippeeee! The day I have always dreamed of! My novel, Be In The Place comes out officially on the book stands today. Please either order it by clicking on this link.

or get nice person at your local book shop to order it in for you. John Adams in Tonbridge will be stocking it, so if you’re local to me, pop in and buy it there! Feel free to tell all booksellers what a wonderful person I am and therefore their store would do very well by stocking Be In The Place by Helen Hobden!!! Thankyou!

So when I meet someone and they naturally say, “What do you do?” Instead of replying with, “Oh, well, I er…I um…well I sit at home and…um…well I write.” And then get a funny look. I can hold my head up high and momentarily get a bit of an ego and say, “Actually I am an author.”

hehe!

A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
photobook review
How to take control of all your photographs
November 6, 2017
About this time last year, I worked with a company called Printerpix – it’s one of those online places that print your photos on all manner of gifts as well as your standard prints. I actually had two photo books printed by them and was very pleased with the quality and ease of use of the website. My parents recently came to stay, and I produced my most recent one for them to have a look at, and Mum asked if I had seen her Italy holiday photos yet. I hadn’t; and I knew it would mean squashing up next to her while going through all her photography files on her small laptop. It got me thinking how strange it is that in a time when we are taking more photos than we ever have done before; we’re actually getting far less printed. They remain a fleeting post on Facebook or Instagram, but are rarely printed and displayed or treasured in a large and heavy book. Has our old family tradition of passing around the photo album at Christmas or after a Sunday roast been lost?….
