Things that I have liked and loved in May 2020

I don’t always find it easy writing lists of the things that I have ‘liked and loved’ throughout the month, especially so during 2020. This year has brought so much sorrow and upset, it’s often difficult to dredge through the despair to find the light within the dark.

However, this month I have made a concerted effort (not only for the kids but also for myself) to smile and to celebrate the magic moments where and when possible – Here are a few of the moments which I have ‘liked and loved’ throughout the month of May.

Js 11th Birthday

Despite being stuck living in ‘lockdown limbo’ J had one of the best birthdays yet.…

Things that I have Liked and Loved in April 2020

At last, April is over and we are through yet another month of lockdown. I suspect that we will have at least another three weeks if not more being stuck inside, though it’s all for our own safety and therefore I must not moan… (moan moan moan).

Despite being stuck within the same four walls, we’ve made the most of our time together – here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout April.

Paul Turned Thirty-Something

Though we tend to celebrate birthdays by enjoying trips and treats out and about, this year we were forced to celebrate Paul’s birthday in ‘sitting room style’ aka – we had yet another day in lockdown.…

Things that I have Liked and Loved in March 2020

I feel almost guilty for writing a ‘positive post’ as the past three months or so have been pure hell, yet here I am trying to look on the bright side – it doesn’t seem nor feel right considering current circumstances (by which I am not referring to the pandemic nor the lockdown). I, however, feel that I owe it to my kids to wear a brave face and for that reason alone, I will continue to blog upon the brighter aspects of what is an incredibly dark time.

So without further ado, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout March…

Kitchen Blinds

Having repainted our dining room and kitchen with a beautiful shade of sage green, I could no longer cope with the straggly, stained roller blinds – they weren’t fit for purpose nevermind presentation!…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in February 2020

I’ll be honest, I don’t really feel much like celebrating the ‘highs from February’, it’s been a terrible month and not one which I ever wish to repeat. Nevertheless, I’ll give it a shot and try to list a few of the things which I have  #LikedandLoved throughout the past 29 days.

Celebrating Valentines Day & Fifteen Years Together

Paul and I have now been together for fifteen years in total, it doesn’t actually feel that long but then time seems to fly by once you are an adult. We didn’t go out or celebrate the occasion as we would usually do, things here are a bit hectic so we were quite happy to sit on the sofa with the television sharing a few sweet treats.…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in January 2020

Jee Wizz January has felt like it has gone on forever! The dark, dank winter days seem to have dragged, I’m not a fan of the cold nor January, to be honest.

On a positive note, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout the past thirty-one, long, dull days.

New Year

As always we brought in the new year at home and for the first time this year our son stayed up to share the celebrations with us. I rather enjoyed watching the fireworks from London with the little man in tow, though I’m not sure that he was all that keen on joining us in dancing to Auld Langs Syne.…
