Welcome to my first #LittleLoves post for 2018, if you haven’t read my blog before now then I’ll quickly explain that #LittleLoves is a weekly linky hosted by Morgana over at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat reflecting upon six (or more) things which fall under set headings that you have loved throughout the week.

I have been taking part in this linky for almost two years now each and every Friday, it is something which I look forward to doing as it gives me chance to reflect upon my week in a positive light.

So without further ado, here is my first #LittleLoves post for the new year, here’s hoping that 2018 is filled with many #LittleLoves all of which I look forward to sharing with you.…

I would like to begin this post by wishing you all a Happy New Year. The #LivingArrows linky is something which I joined almost two years ago now and have continued to take part in on a weekly basis. This project originally took its name from a Kahil Gibran poem “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and the point of this project is quite simply to celebrate childhood.

Each week (on a Monday) I share one or two pictures of our little ones taken throughout the week, this has proved to be a fantastic way in which to capture memories and to keep a record of our children over time.…

These days I try to look at things from a new perspective, absorbing all angles whilst appreciating the bigger picture.…

2017 has been one heck of a year, the past twelve months has been action packed for both the children and us adults. 2017 has certainly flown by that’s for sure as time seems to when you’re busy having fun.

Having kept a record of my #LittleLoves each week alongside the things which I have #LikedandLoved each month has made looking back over the year a little easier. Here are a few of our highlights from 2017…

We completed building J’s new ‘high-sleeper’ which was then placed into his new bedroom which we then painted and carpeted in a brilliant shade of blue.… View Post

With less than fifty days to go before the big day arrives I have finally got my arse into gear in terms of Christmas. I’ve spent this afternoon pulling the contents of my wardrobe tops down to get an idea of the bits and pieces which I have managed to collect in the run up to the chaos which is Christmas.

Meanwhile the kids were busy at School no doubt sharing their stories from Bonfire Night. Here are a couple of pictures of the children which were taken yesterday at the local Fireworks display. It was certainly brisk outside but we made sure that we each wore many layers, staying wrapped up with warm rosy cheeks as we stood by the fire.…
