#LivingArrows – Happy 10th Birthday J 20/52 (2019)

It’s official, our little man is now double digits. I’m not entirely sure where those ten years went but they’ve certainly passed as out little man ain’t all that little anymore!

Happy 10th Birthday J

Despite spending his birthday at school, J has had a brilliant birthday. We got up early so that he had plenty of time to open his many cards and presents, he then spent the day with his friends having fun at the local Museum before coming home and opening yet more presents, blowing out his candles and eating shed loads of cake. Having waited for over an hour for Paul and I to assemble his new drum kit, he eventually had time playing with that too.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Happy Double Digit Eve To Our Little Man

As our beautiful boy is about to turn the grand age of ten, we have spent almost the entire weekend celebrating. We’ve obviously partied a little too hard as the kids are both worn out: E came down with some sort of sickness bug last night and J barely has a voice left thus they are both in bed early tonight.

This time ten years ago I was busy sucking on gas and air whilst begging for a c section, I can barely believe it’s been a decade since our little man made an arrival into this World. TEN YEARS! Where on earth has that time gone?!…

#MySundaySnapshot – Swan Lake 20/52 (2019)

Welcome to this weeks edition of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a blog-linky which I’d love for you to join and share your photos with. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

With our son about to turn double digits this week, we loaded the car with spare clothes, a first aid kit, a rather heavy picnic and plenty of drinks then headed out with two of his friends for the day to the Tree Top Nets. Having bounced ourselves into a sweaty stupor, we eventually ran out of energy and time so took a stroll to the lakeside for lunch.…

#LiverpoolGuide2019 – Something To Add To The List

With half term fast approaching (followed shortly by the summer holidays) I’ve made a start on putting together a list of activity ideas to keep the kids entertained. Being based in the North West, we have plenty of options for places and cities to visit, which are relatively, close by.

Although we visit Liverpool annually it’s only ever to make user of their airport, which seems a shame considering how much is happening in the city. It’s about time therefore that we added Liverpool to our list…

Liverpool One has a number of awesome events lined up for the next few months, some of which both my husband and I quite fancy attending.…

The Siblings Project – May 2019

Life as a parent ain’t always plain sailing, it’s much like a rollercoaster really – there’s ups, downs, plenty of adrenalin and a whole lot of screaming but it’s thrilling, exhilarating, breath taking and one heck of an experience. Much like a rollercoaster ride, it’s a whole heap of fun but time whizzes by far too fast…

This time next week I’ll have a ten year old – it doesn’t feel as if it’s been a decade since I was waddling about the size of a small house. I can barely believe that J will be double digits, where on earth has the time gone?…
