It has been fourteen years since Paul and I ventured out on what would become ‘our first date’. Fourteen years sounds like an incredibly long time, Yet two kids, two dogs and two houses down the line, it doesn’t really feel all that long in reality.
Each day I look at my beautiful children and I realise just how lucky we are, they are our everything and I couldn’t imagine my World without them. Fourteen years ago I would never have imagined that I’d be where I am right now, where we are right now. We’ve made some amazing memories not just as a couple but as a family.
Happy Fourteen Years!…
The notion of the perfect parent is nothing more than a wild goose chase! In fact, it is something that does much more harm than good, because even the parents that are getting things right most of the time can use it to beat themselves over the head with! Instead, we need to accept that parenting, just like any other experience in life will be a mixed bag where you get some things wrong, even if you are trying your hardest to do the best you can. In fact, what is far more important here is that we aim to be good instead of perfect, something that is attainable with the advice below.…
With less than a week to go until half term the kids are more than ready for a holiday. It doesn’t feel like all that long ago since we were off for Christmas, yet the kids and I are both in much-need of a well-earned rest. We haven’t a huge amount planned for the half term, I’ve a few appointments written in the diary but other than that, I’m trying to keep our schedule fairly clear.
Our Little Lego Lover
Having watched the Lego Movie 2 over the weekend, J is now set upon adding to his ever-growing Lego collection with yet more plastic-fantastic sets.…
It feels like forever since we’ve been to the flicks, it was therefore a welcome treat to watch a movie at the local cinema earlier this morning. The kids were both eager to see Lego Movie 2 which as it happens was fairly enjoyable.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind taking the kids to the cinema but HOW MUCH?! In total with tickets, food and drinks we managed to make our way through at least £40! It may have cost us an arm and a leg but the kids enjoyed every moment and that’s what it’s all about.
I must sound like such a whining, cheap-skate, I realise that trips out are an expensive affair but I was rather shocked and surprised by how steep a quick trip to the flicks was.…
Three years ago, I began a rather interesting online journey in the form of a blog. Never for a second did I imagine than my writing would be anything other than a hobby, three years later though I have made a whole group of new friends, have met some incredible people and I have experienced some amazing opportunities all thanks to being a blogger.
What is a blogger? I’m not entirely sure. I may have spent the past three years sharing posts online, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m just a girl with a laptop that likes to share some parts of her life online. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging but it hasn’t come without its issues.…
