Things I Have Liked And Loved In February 2017

Welcome to my second instalment of the ‘Liked And Loved’ series which I plan to maintain on a monthly basis in an attempt to create a kind of ‘happy list’ to reflect upon the positives throughout the year.

February is technically one of the shortest months of the year yet somehow it feels like it has been never-ending. Here are some of the things I have ‘Liked and Loved’ this month.


Twelve Years Together

Paul and I celebrated twelve years together as a couple on February 13th, we had planned to go out for a meal together but the restaurant at which we usually dine wasn’t serving meals that night.…

Celebrating Pancake Day With The #WhatsYourFlavour Num Noms Campaign

We may have accidentally celebrated Pancake Day a week early in this household but that means only one thing, we can do it all over again this week!

The NumNoms #WhatsYourFlavour Campaign

Num Noms are also celebrating this Pancake Day with the release of their new wacky stackables and we were very kindly offered the chance to take part in their latest #WhatsYourFlavour campaign.

What better way to celebrate Shrove Tuesday than to get the kids into the kitchen and get a little creative with their favourite figures, foods and flavours?


What Are Num Noms?

Num Noms became hugely popular in 2016 with their collectible, food based, scented figures proving to be a big hit with children across the UK.…

#LivingArrows – Taking Cover In The Tub 9/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a photo or two of my children. These weekly posts give me the chance to record fond memories of my children as they grow which I can look back upon in years to come.

I have been a bit lax on the old photography recently with one thing or another. I will get my snap-happy mojo back no doubt when the sun starts shining and I have more chance to stand back and photograph the kids as they play. It’s easy to forget to take photos when you are in the midst of playing with the kids indoors, it somehow gets overlooked as you yourself become engrossed in a board game or lego building…

Somehow though I managed to snap this beauty whilst the kids were enjoying playing Peek A Boo during their nightly bath time and thought it was too good to keep to myself.…

#MySundayPhoto – Sibling Sofa Surfing

As part of our Sunday routine we spend time together as a family playing board games, watching movies or generally just being together, all four of us having fun.

Unfortunately I have been somewhat under the weather for the past few days and if I am totally honest I am really struggling this time. Usually when I contract a cold, stomach bug or whatever else I bounce back a few days later but this time my body is that run down that I have been knocked for six and completely wiped out.

As I’m currently firing with only one cylinder I took the weekend off work to rest and recuperate and insisted that this evening we sat together and watched a movie.…
