#TheOrdinaryMoments – Unpack & Play

Every now and then we are sent products to review; usually toys, games and such-like for the kids, which they love to open and to share their thoughts upon – what kid wouldn’t? Whilst this photo will be used as part of an upcoming review, I thought I’d share it as part of the ‘ordinary moments’ series, as this has become something which they have grown used to over the years, yet something they still get incredibly excited about each and every time we receive a package to put to the test…

My kids are experts in unboxing and package peeling, they make swift work of the job that’s for sure.…

Spring is in the air, which is about time as I’m done with winter weather! I’ve had it with being stuck indoors – whilst I love my house and the comforts which it contains, I cannot cope with being hostage to the weather.

As I stood, wrapped in a chunky-knit cardigan, watching the children as they played on the park, I noticed that my feet were surrounded by daisies.…

#LivingArrows – Working For The Weekend 11/52 (2019)

As I said in my previous post, weekends simply aren’t long enough! It doesn’t matter how hard we try to get everything done and dusted there’s always appointments, places to be and things to do either in or out of the house.

If I were to list of all the things that we do over the weekend, I’d either bore you to tears or waste quite a few sheets of A4 paper. I am well aware that our schedule is a little squeezed over the weekend yet the kids are quite happy to muck in and to do their bit.

Having taken our little lady to her swimming lesson (which is a fifty-minute drive away), I was suddenly aware that I was driving what felt like a skip on wheels.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Rest, Reflect & Recharge

How is it that weekends go by in the blink of an eye? Two days simply just aren’t enough!

Whilst I was lucky to be left to laze in bed for an extra few hours yesterday, it didn’t seem to make a jot of difference, as I still feel completely and utterly exhausted no matter how much rest I seem to get. I really ought to get to bed earlier but I’m a night owl or perhaps a vampire, as I function far better in the darkness than the daylight.

By the time that the kids have had their tea, finished their homework, had a bath, read a story and are tucked up in bed, there’s only an hour or two before it’s bedtime for us.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Scenic Stop 11/52 (2019)

Welcome to this weeks #MySundaySnapshot post, a recently launched blog-linky that you are more than welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you fancy taking part.

Having a child with travel sickness can be stressful for both the child and the parent, especially if you happen to the one behind the wheel. To avoid danger or disaster (by which I’m referring to my daughter plastering herself and the upholstery with puke) I’ve become accustomed to making a number of stops whilst on the road with my little lady.

Over the years I have found a number of scenic side-roads and stops at which our little lady can either have a short stroll, take a breather or empty the contents of her stomach whichever she pleases. …
