Things that I have #LikedandLoved in September 2020

So here we are at the end of September and I won’t lie – it’s not been the easiest nor the most pleasant month but still, I’ll do my best to list a few of the things which I guess that I have #LikedandLoved¬†over the past thirty days.

Starting School

Both J & E moved up a stage as E transferred from the infants to the juniors, whilst J moved from being a junior to a senior school student. It feels weird seeing my ‘not so little man’ dressed in an entirely different uniform, catching school buses and all that malarkey.…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in August 2020

Sadly, August has come to an end, summer is no longer… School is about to start for September and whilst I’m not entirely sure as to whether or not I’m ready to commence with the chaos, the time is nigh. So without further ado, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout August.

Thirteen Years Wed

As of this month, Paul and I have been married for thirteen years. It doesn’t feel like thirteen years have passed since we walked down the aisle but I guess time flies both when you’re having fun and when you’ve got kids – I seriously believe that time flicked to double speed the moment that the kids came along.…

So here we are at the end of July already – it’s strange how quickly time flies by despite us having to battle the boredom of being stuck in lockdown limbo. So without further ado, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout July.

The End Of Term & The End of An Era

School (or should I say homeschool?) came to a close for the academic year. J is no longer a junior, he has now finished primary school entirely, and come September will be moving on to senior school, whereas E has now finished in the infants and come autumn will be a junior.…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in June 2020

Here we are, halfway through the year from hell – what I’d do to wake up one morning and to discover that the past six months have been nothing but a nightmare, sadly that’s not the case and so I continue to try and look at the lighter side of things. So without further ado, here are some of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout June.

Fun In The Sun

Every now and then (like once in a blue moon) us Northerners get to see the yellowy-orangy ball in the sky and though it’s often hidden behind a cloud, this week there were no clouds to be seen and the temperature shot up to a whopping thirty-something-degrees, leaving us with no other option other than to laze around like Brits abroad.…

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.…
