Gosh, it’s so lovely to finally get back into the swing of blogging again. I’ve still got a fair amount of posts, reviews and other things to catch up with but there’s no rush. I’m no longer putting any pressure on myself to do anything, I plan to take life one step at a time and to enjoy the here and the now as much as I possibly can.
Our little lady is such a diva, she’s recently started dance lessons at the local dance school and already we’ve collected her a leotard, ballet shoes and as of tomorrow evening we should be able to complete her collection with a brand, spanking new pair of tap shoes all ready for her next lesson.…
With the kids being that bit older and the summer evenings allowing us a few extra hours of sunshine, we decided to seize the opportunity and to take a trip to the Ski Bar for a couple of cold ones and some cookies for the kids.
I’d like to get the kids accustomed to getting out and about of an evening, whether it’s for a stroll along the shore, a kick about in the park or socialising in an adult setting. Our kids seem to behave pretty well when we take them out and with a little luck I’m hoping that we may be able to include them within our social lives a little more by taking them along for evenings out with our adult friends.…
We met up with our good friends Vicky, Mike, Viv and Derick for a BBQ over the weekend. It was once again fabulous weather and whilst the sun was shining we barbecued our burgers, sizzled our sausages and I apparently sizzled myself.
Given that the UK seems to be in the height of a heatwave, I really ought to start using a little more sun tan lotion on my shoulders as I’m beginning to resemble a lobster – my children on the other hand are covered in suncream!
Heres a couple of snaps which I shot whilst the kids were busy playing in Vic and Mike’s garden, I say playing but in J’s case I actually mean reading.…
It feels as if life has been on fast forward for the past fortnight, J was busy out and about with his class down in York the other week and whilst I haven’t had the chance to write about his residential I thought I’d take this opportunity to share a picture of our Prince outside York Minster.
J had an amazing few days touring York with his class friends, I on the other hand spent most of my time worried sick as to whether he’d eat, wash, sleep and all the other things which I needn’t have worried about whatsoever as he absoloutly fine!…
It was J’s ninth birthday earlier this week, I cannot believe our boy is only one year away from double figures! He was spoilt rotten with gifts galore and celebrated with friends by having a pool party at the local leisure centre.

Meanwhile our little lady seems to have it sorted when it comes to ‘dressing up’, as her costume collection seems to consist of almost every Disney Diva imaginable including an Elsa outfit which she has spent the past week waltzing about it whilst pulling random faces when a camera comes out.

Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.…
