#MySundaySnapshot – Deep Purple 24/52 (2019)

Welcome to this weeks #MySundaySnapshot blog post, a regular, weekly linky which you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Whilst I’d intended to write numerous blog posts throughout the week, I haven’t really been in the mood nor the frame of mind to do so. It’s been a really tough time if I’m honest and whilst I won’t go into details regarding the matter, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to my family and friends who took the time to support and chivvy me through a difficult few days.…

The Siblings Project – June 2019

This time tomorrow it will be Fathers Day here in the UK – a day entirely dedicated to the Dads, Grandads, Great-Grandads and all the blokes that have chosen to take on the role of ‘parent’.

Whilst sharing my monthly ‘siblings snapshot’, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Paul (my ever-patient and hard-working husband) a very Happy Fathers Day (for tomorrow). He truly is the most amazing Father with two very lucky little kids that worship the ground that he walks upon.

Here is a simply stunning shot of J, E, Paul and of course – our beloved basset hound Maisy which they took together whilst having a walk along the beach.…

#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.

#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.…

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

Gosh I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired! I hate taking time off, I hate letting anyone down especially so when it’s last minute. This week however I found myself in a situation where I had no other option as my body took control.

It’s not the first time that it’s happened either – One moment I was going about my business, washing my face and from what I remember I was about to brush my teeth when there was an almighty thud – it was me … I’d passed out and I had hit the deck.…
