#MySundayPhoto – Practice Makes Perfect

So it’s Sunday once again, yet another week has flown by and we have literally days left before my little man finishes his time at school as an ‘Infant’. I was warned by many of my family and friends that kids grow up quickly but I didn’t realise how right they were.

My little man is doing so well, he still has the occasional wobble every now and then and it’s during those times like this weekend in the midst of being assessed for his ‘yellow belt’ that I have to remind myself he is still only seven years old! It worries me that there is far too much pressure put onto our kids these days from such an early age, I want J to do well don’t get me wrong but I don’t want him to feel the weight of the World on his shoulders, I want him to enjoy his childhood!…

#LittleLoves – Those Proud Mummy Moments

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LittleLoves, it is soooo almost the summer holidays and we are all on ‘wind down’ to prepare for some quality family time without the daily school regime and random after school clubs. I am looking forward to the free time together without commitments to kick back, relax and just be a family.

I would hazard a guess that this weeks #LittleLoves aren’t anything particularly inspiring or even interesting but for me they are moments that have raised a smile and made my heart swell over the past seven days or so.

Transforming Our Dreams Into Realities

I swear to god the last few weeks before the end of the summer term are crazy busy, I don’t seem to be able to differentiate between my ass and my elbow at this present moment as there is so much going on. First things first the kids are great, E is completely back to normal following her recent fall which is super-duper. J has managed to blow me away with his willingness to partake in his school fun run and this morning he made my heart swell with pride as he crossed the finish line full of smiles.

Now for the more complicated matters, we have finally pushed the gigantic bowling bowl down ‘extension alley’ following receiving planning permission for the build to take place.…

One Of My Worst Nightmares Became A Reality

One of my biggest fears became a reality yesterday, I have always worried about my children’s safety when using the stairs and yesterday my fears became a reality as my little girl took a tumble from the very top to the very bottom of our stairs.

It was early morning following breakfast, E and I were upstairs getting ready for the day. I had piled up the washing basket, the waste paper bin and some pots to bring downstairs to sort and clean as I do each day. We were just as we were about to venture downstairs, I had opened the baby gate ready for us to do our usual ‘counting the steps’ as E sits on her bum and goes down each one. …

THE BLOG WITH THE BOOTY

Each week one post which has been added to the #TuesdayTreasures linky is selected by myself to share with you all. This week I really enjoyed reading a post written by Charlotte from HappyGoMummy sharing her reflections upon her first month of blogging.  ‘One Month Of Blogging‘ was an interesting read, especially for myself as I have now been blogging for six months and love to hear how other bloggers feel about the whole ‘blogging thing’, I found myself nodding and agreeing with Charlotte as I read “Blogging is addictive, it consumes you like a tidal wave.…
