#TheOrdinaryMoments – Pooch Perils

If I should ever wonder where either of my children may be, I will usually find them wherever the dog happens to reside. The pooch adores the pair of them and would follow them to the moon and back if she could.

Sitting on the sofa is no longer an individual activity, Maisy will insist upon sitting either between or on people, she is either lacking the intelligence to understand the concept of personal space or simply cannot cope without being close to us.

The kids adore the dog, I on the other hand am not quite as impressed today. Our beautiful basset decided to jump at the table, knocking my coffee all over the floor.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Flower Power 3/52 (2019)

Welcome to the third week of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a brand new blog-linky which you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part. Thanks to all those that have taken part over the past fortnight, I have really enjoyed flicking through all the photos that have been shared so far.

Whilst I can cope with keeping two kids clothed, warm, fed, watered and healthy – it seems that I unable to care for and to keep a plant alive for more than week. I’ve had all kinds of house plants over the years and, none of which have made it for long.…

The Siblings Project – Cuddles On The Couch (January 2019)

I made a vow to take part in a range of linkies during 2019, one of which was the ‘The Siblings Project’, a monthly linky (run and hosted by Dear Beautiful) sharing snapshots of our children together. J & E have the most fantastic relationship and despite the odd squabble they get along like a house on fire.

It’s not often that J & E manage to share a snapshot together, they are forever playing together but that doesn’t always make for the perfect picture. This particular photo was taken by my Mum whilst our kids were out at a sleep over.…

#LivingArrows – Perfect In Pyjamas 2/52 (2018)

Having spent most of the holidays parading in our pyjamas, the kids seem to have stuck to the habit and who can blame them? I find so much comfort just from putting on a pair of slippers, it’s the first thing I do upon arriving home. I can therefore understand my little ones love for lounge wear. I’d happily wear my pyjamas and dressing gown all day long if I could, as for fluffy bed socks – I can’t get enough of them!

With it being winter and slightly on the chilly side, E decided to wear her ‘Ninny (her word for bunny) onesie’ over her leotard, whilst on the way to her dance class this evening.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Homework Hitler

It doesn’t feel as if it has only been a week since the kids returned back to school, we seem to have fallen back into routine with ease. As always, we spent our Sunday afternoon completing homework before sharing a board game. Both J & E have become so accustomed to having homework, there are never any complaints nor fussing, they just get on with it!

Sharing A Story

Spelling Investigation

The kids seem to enjoy and respect having structure in their life. We may have a rigid-ish routine but these are our ‘Ordinary Moments’. I’m aware that I may come across as a slave driver, I’m far from it though.…
