Lacking Sleep

I am totally and utterly knackered following yet another sleepless night looking after the kids. I’m not alone in my suffering as both Paul and I are like walking zombies having had next to no sleep.

Poor J suffers with terrible nightmares from time to time and last night he was apparently visited by spiders, bees and god knows what other random terrifying visions. Obviously we encourage our children to come to us for reassurance should they ever feel worried or upset but 3am isn’t the best time to be woken by a screaming child.

An hour later J was finally settled in bed with us, sprawled out like an octopus between Paul and I.…

#LivingArrows Sand Dune Strolls 13/52 (2017)

What wonderful weather we’ve been having this week, the kids have shed their winter coats, the Ugg boots have been put back into the wardrobe and the shades are firmly back in place following what felt like a really long winter.

It’s been blue skies all weekend and the kids made the very best of the good weather by spending their time out and about in the garden digging mud pools which I wont mention and taking long strolls upon the sand dunes with their Daddy.

Here are a few pictures that Paul snapped one-handed whilst simultaneously yanking the dog along and chasing the kids.…

Going To The Dark Side With The Aquabeads Star Wars Kylo Ren & Stormtrooper Set

Both of my boys (both J and the hubby) are rather partial to anything Sci-Fi based, J was therefore rather pleased when we were recently sent the Aquabeads Star Wars Kylo Ren & Stormtrooper Set to put to the test and to review.

What Are Aquabeads?

For those of you that aren’t aware, Aquabeads are small, coloured beads which can be placed upon a crafting board and when sprayed with water stick together to create a range of 2D designs. There are a wide range of similar products also available on the market but most of these require either a hot iron to bond the beads or simply fall apart after use.…

#MySundayPhoto – Loving The Lakes

Firstly may I begin this weeks #MySundayPhoto post by wishing Mothers UK wide a very Happy Mothers Day!

I woke earlyish this morning to a mahoosive card, and an array of flowers and chocolates from the kids. Following being spoilt rotten I dragged myself out of bed an hour earlier than usual thanks to the clocks changing and got myself ready for yet another day behind the bar.

Following what must have been one of the busiest Sunday shifts this year so far, I returned home to find the hubby had been busy in the kitchen making a fabulous Sunday Roast which we all enjoyed.…
