Living In A Bubble

As a fellow blogger and an avid blog reader, I realise that life is often painted to be far sweeter than reality.

It’s all very well sharing the picture perfect moments from your day but let’s be honest now, the majority of those photos use filters and if the photos themselves aren’t filtered or altered in some form then the accompanying blog posts most often are.

There are moments when I stand staring into space wondering what exactly it is that I’m doing and where it is that I’m heading. Those moments are never photographed nor caught on camera, yet somehow I feel as if I’m being observed during those times.…

#LivingArrows – Sleeping Beauty & Trouser Snakes 17/53 (2018)

Since starting School our little lady seems to be suffering with endless amounts of ailments. If it’s not stomach bugs, coughs, colds, asthma related issues or eczema related issues then it’s something else doing the rounds.

I swear to god we pack our kids full of fruit, vegetables and vitamins galore yet this seems to make absolutely no difference whatsoever when it comes to E. Bless her, she had almost a week off school prior to the Easter holidays and within a week of returning she’s back at home recuperating from yet another bug.

I feel as if I’m failing as a parent somehow, I’m well aware that kids catch bugs but this seems to be a never-ending cycle for E.…

#MySundayPhoto – Beach Ride

It’s been over a year since I last rode a horse, I’ve been meaning to book a ride for some time now but with working weekends I had little to no time in which to do much of anything. Thankfully working weekends is no longer an issue, I was therefore finally able to get back into the saddle and to make the best of yesterdays beautiful weather with a beach ride.

It was great to have a little time out to myself: being sat in the saddle has always given me the much-needed ‘peace’ which my mind seems to crave.

I was rather nervous about getting back on the horse, much-like riding a bike though – it all came flooding back.…

#LittleLoves – Summer Swagger, Beach Rides & Jumping Around

I feel as if I’m forever typing “I intended to write this sooner only…” and here I am yet again saying exactly that and for good reason as I’ve literally this moment, arrived back from hospital with my daughter. It’s been a lonnnnnng evening but we’ve finally got a diagnosis and it seems my darling daughter will be spending yet more time off school this week as she recovers from what is apparently ‘impetigo’.

How on earth she has caught such a thing I have no idea, I guess it’s just one of those things that spread rapidly and with being at school this week she’s most likely to have picked it up there.…

Conquering Canada

When thinking of the USA, a lot of people forget about little old Canada. It’s a gem that is often overlooked due to it being surrounded by the mainland USA. However, it’s important to remember that it’s completely separate from the US, so if you’re going to conquer Canada, there are different rules and regulations that you need to follow to get into the country.

Always make sure you have the right visa before travelling, and always make sure you’re not bringing anything into the country that they wouldn’t allow… they’re very very strict! So, without further ado, here’s how your can conquer Canada.…
