Slap my hand for I am a bad Mother blogger, I realise that I have barely blogged this week but in all honesty I’ve had far too much to do and very little to say. Life has been hectic much like my head which seems to be swimming with information most of which isn’t of interest nor worth writing about.

I may have been running around like a headless chicken for the past week or so but I’ve certainly enjoyed doing so. Given that Friday has once again landed upon us I am now sat at my Mac with a Martini in my mits ready to share my #LittleLoves from the past seven days.…

Prior to having our son J, my parents very kindly bought us a JVC HD Everio video camera on which we spent hours recording footage of our little man as he grew before our eyes.

Back then almost nine years ago the JVC video camera was top of the range, it was fairly bulky and required many cables to either charge, connect to a computer or send images to a television screen. I kept the camera along with its cables and many cards within a rather large bag which I carried almost everywhere with me.

It’s hard to believe how technology has advanced since back then as these days I capture almost all of our video footage using my trusty IPhone which is compact, light and can do far more than shoot video.…

As a family we are quite into puzzles especially in the jigsaw form. Whilst we are fairly of-fey with 2D puzzles we’ve only ever encountered 3D puzzles once before prior to receiving the ‘Ravensburger Big Ben 3D Jigsaw‘ that we were recently to sent to piece together and to review.

According to the news today just so happens to be ‘Blue Monday’ as apparently today is the most depressing day of the year. I have to say that I disagree entirely as today has pretty productive in terms of housework, that and I’ve just finished up an interview with a new supply agency so with a little luck I should be back in the classroom within the next month or two.

The kids however seem to be wired, they came home full of beans and have spent every moment since bouncing from the ceiling. I’m not sure why or how they have so much energy but I’ve spent the past few hours desperately trying to deter them from devastation as sibling rivalry was rife.…

Theres so much more to fire than heat; the glow of the burning embers, the smell of the smoke, the sound of crackling as the fire burns. It's mesmerising and I could spend hours seated by the fireside warming myself or simply soaking in the atmosphere as the flames cast shadow and light around the room. If there's one thing that really, truly relaxes my mind, it's simply to sit myself by a fire and to gaze into it making patterns, shapes and forms from the flames. View Post
