Happy Five Years From Forty To The Hubby!

It’s official, my hubby is only five years away from hitting the big 4-0, that said it won’t be long before I join him in being thirty-five years young.

As expected and deserved, Paul has been spoilt rotten with gifts and goodies galore. He woke first thing this morning to a pile of cards and presents (one of which happened to be from our rather haggard, old basset hound but I won’t go into detail upon that).

After making himself comfortable with a coffee on the couch Paul was then inundated with presents which the kids took great pleasure in helping him to open.…

Happy 2nd Blog Birthday To Me!

It doesn’t feel as if I’ve been blogging for two years but as of today this blog is officially two years old! I’ve had an amazing twenty-four months of blogging, I never really expected for my writing to amount to anything other than perhaps a couple of comments from family and friends.

Whilst my blog isn’t particularly popular in comparison with others online I try not to compare nor to take statistics or numbers to heart as popularity nor point scoring is the reason for which I blog. I blog simply because I enjoy writing, that and I feel that I have something to share from time to time which I hope others may find humorous or helpful.…

#LivingArrows – A Big Birthday & Magic Moments (47/52) 2017

It was the children’s Great Nana Margy’s ninety ninth Birthday today, can you Adam and Eve it? I certainly couldn’t imagine getting to ninety-nine and looking so blumming good for my age never mind getting to that age at all.

With just one year to go before Margy turns three figures I’m damned sure that she’s a family hero or a heroin should I say. I myself no longer have any Grandparents and haven’t for many years now, whereas my husband Paul still has his beloved Nana Margy and his Grandad Da which is wonderful to see and especially so for the children.…

#LivingArrows Birthday Takes & Cakes 34/52 (2017)

Although it is technically E’s fourth birthday tomorrow (how the hell is my little lady four-years old already?!) we celebrated slightly earlier, throwing a party in our garden with family and friends which was much-enjoyed by all.

Here are a few shots of the kids taken during the party which despite being low-key was a super shindig, E was spoilt rotten with gifts and had an amazing time bouncing on the castle, trampoline and god knows what else, running around the garden and the house and generally burning off some serious energy with her friends and family.

Rather than spend hours waffling on whilst I’m half-awake, I’ll save it for when I have a little more energy and a little less to do!…
