#TheOrdinaryMoments – Another Fine Fest

Following a rather sudden change to our plans for this weekend, my husband and I found ourselves footloose and fancy-free to do as we pleased. Never the type to waste a weekend, we took the kids along to the annual gala where they feasted upon hotdogs and ice cream, bounced themselves silly on the inflatables, smashed a few plates for kicks and spent their pennies on books and toys before heading back home to get ready for a night with their Nana and Grandad.

After dropping the kids with my folks, Paul and I got our glad rags on, went out for a spot of tea at the pub then made our way to Ulverston to celebrate ‘Another Fine Fest’.…

Welcome to this weeks edition of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a weekly 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.

It hasn’t been the easiest week that I’ve ever had – whilst I do not wish to go into the finer details upon this matter, I would like to thank my family and friends who were nothing but supportive and understanding during a difficult time.

Whilst I may have spent the beginning of the week feeling pretty blue, by the end of the week I felt far more ‘purple’ shall we say.…

The Siblings Project – June 2019

With tomorrow being Fathers Day here in the UK – I thought that I would share a picture taken earlier this week of my wonderful husband and our two beautiful children, whilst out with our beloved basset for a walk along the shore.

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, Grandads, Great-Grandads, Soon To Be Dads, Step-Dads and to all those blokes who offer their love, support and influence to the next generation. May you have a fantastic Fathers Day whatever you chose to do.

I would like to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to my awesome husband, he is an incredible Dad and our two kids worship the ground that he walks upon, the dog quite likes him too!…

#LivingArrows- Back To Team Base 23/52 (2019)

Having spent three days needlessly worrying about my little man last week, I’m far happier now that he is back at base, here at home.

We function best as a team – when one or more of us is absent things just aren’t the same. Whilst I’m all for having the odd kid-free evening to spend some time as a couple, I’m far more at ease when the kids are sleeping soundly in their own beds.

Happy To Be Home – Hugs With The Hound

Lord knows how I’ll fare in however many years time when the kids grow up and decide its time to fly the nest, I don’t even wish to contemplate that concept at present.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Happy To Be Home

Our little lad spent half of the working week busy with his buddies on a residential trip, to say that I missed him is an understatement! I know fine well that J is more than capable of coping without us for a few days but I’m not sure that I feel quite the same…

I cannot tell you how glad I am to have our little guy back where he’s meant to be, he too seems pretty happy to be home. Having arrived back at base with what appeared to be an impressive tan, J then hopped into the shower for a serious scrub, where he/ we discovered that his brilliant bronzing was in fact dirt.…
