Clean Up And Clear Out

Paul finally managed to clean up and clear out the garage whoop whoop! Now we just need to work out how we are going to empty the utility room whilst temporarily using it for the washing facilities.

Being used to having so much space makes it so bleeding difficult when you are asked to make do with far less, it’s certainly given us the chance to sort through our belongings and get rid of a whole load of rubbish.

The kids stayed overnight at my parents house last night, I am hoping that they slept well and didn’t miss us too much.…

#LittleLoves – Family, Fun & New Beginnings

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LittleLoves filled with family, fun and new beginnings. I feel like the dark cloud that seemed to loom over our heads is slowly lifting and we are now able to move forward and to make a fresh start.

It’s Official, Our Extension Has Begun!

It’s official, our extension has begun! The builders arrived early this morning to begin prepping the utility room and the garage which isn’t quite empty yet. The scaffolders have now arrived along with their drills and rather loud radio which will of course make us the most popular neighbours in town.

I am rather excited about the whole shebackle other than having to spend the next six weeks squashed into half a kitchen with the dog and random accessories which were originally kept out of the way in the Utility room.

It is going to be chaos, it’s going to be messy and my little OCD voices will no doubt be screaming in the back of my mind through the whole build but it’ll be worth it.…

Blog On MSI Ice Breaker

In a couple of weeks I will be attending my first bloggers conference, ‘Blog On‘ in Manchester.

I’m feeling fairly nervous about the whole thing given that it’ll be my first time but if I’m totally honest my biggest worry is travelling two hours on my lonesome down the M6 and then having to navigate my way around Manchester without having a small melt down.

Zoe from Mama Geek has put together some ice breaker questions to enable bloggers attending to get to know each other a little better beforehand. I also thought that my readers may enjoy gaining a little insight into the ‘girl behind the blog’.…

#TuesdayTreasures 13/09/2016

Ahoy Matey! Welcome Aboard #TuesdayTreasures Welcome to this weeks #TuesdayTreasures blog linky share. #TuesdayTreasures is for bloggers from all walks of life, whether you are a parenting, lifestyle or any other type of blogger you are welcome to join in and to share your posts new and old. 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 read a post which struck me as relatable to how I once felt back in the early baby days. Having kids is a huge step and one which can sometimes leave us wondering about ourselves, our own identity and sometimes it can lead us to feeling insignificant, invisible almost. 'Oh Mummy Mia' documented precisely these feelings in her latest blog post 'Am I Invisible Or What?'. #TuesdayTreasures 13/09/2016 Oh Mummy Mia is a 29 year old Mother and Wife from Spalding, Oh Mummy Mia's blog is intended to be a diary and guidebook for other Mums, documenting family life, Motherly mishaps, product reviews, and travel.
