#TheOrdinaryMoments – Decorating For Christmas

It’s official – December is upon us and it’s finally time for the Christmas countdown.

The kids woke early this morning to find that Rocko (the Elf) had returned in style by wedging himself into a toilet roll and rolling from top to bottom down the stairs. He had apparently written “I’m back” along the toilet roll and attached to his hand was a letter from the North Pole and £2 from the Tooth Fairy who he’d obviously bumped into whilst on his travels…

Having finally cleared up the trail of toilet roll, the kids were eager to open their advent calendars.…

I can’t tell you how glad I am that it’s the weekend – this week has dragged and I’m in much need of some downtime.

The kids went to the beach this afternoon with their Dad, the dog, and their Grandad whilst I busied myself with Black Friday bargains ordering bits and bobs for Christmas.

#LittleLoves – November 2019

Excuse the rather late post, I’ve had an emotionally demanding day followed by a much-needed night out with my bestie thus have been somewhat occupied. However, I am now home, have had a hot bath and am curled up in my pj’s with my Macbook ready to write this months #LittleLoves. So – without further ado, here a few of my highlights from November.


I had seen and added ‘The Little Book of Hygge‘ to my Amazon wishlist many moons ago but wasn’t willing to part for £9.99 for the pleasure. Whilst at work, I had the chance to peruse a ‘Children In Need’ charity book sale and came across what appeared to a brand new copy of the book for only 50p!…
