The Siblings Project – October 2019

So here we are, halfway through October already! I don’t know about you but I’m ready for a rest, bring on that half-term holiday, I’m more than ready for a break.

With the darker nights starting to set in, we have been eeking out ever hour of sunlight we have before the curtains are closed and we settle down for the evening. Whether it’s a short walk, a quick scoot or a bike ride, it makes all the difference to the day.

Work Hard – PLAY HARD!

With all the rain we’ve had of late, it’s hard to believe that this photo was taken just last weekend whilst enjoying a play at the park.…

#LivingArrows – Make Every Moment Count 41/52 (2019)

Life is short, so be sure to spend it with those that matter and to make every moment count.

Kids seem to know exactly how to live life to the max, they don’t care so much whether people are watching, laughing or commenting upon their antics. They are happy in their bodies, free spirits without the burden of the anxieties and worries that the adult society seems to carry like a heavy shroud.

Childhood is a time to be savoured, enjoyed and to be reflected upon fondly. These two kids of mine are a living reminder to live life for the moment and to savour every second.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Soggy Sundays

It’s most definitely been a soggy Sunday! We’ve had non-stop rain for the past twenty-four hours and whilst I’d usually suggest that it’s the weather for ducks – I’m pretty sure that even they are fed up with the forecast!

E and I drove through to town earlier for her weekly swimming lessons. Unfortunately, the spa facilities were shut, leaving me to watch from the window rather than spectate from the sauna. To be honest, I wasn’t all that fussed as I didn’t really feel like getting wet today, I didn’t really feel like doing much of anything other than wrapping up warm and keeping comfortable.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Paint Me Red 41/52 (2019)

Welcome to this week’s rather red themed #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

This time next week it’ll be the half-term holidays, Although I have nothing planned as of yet (other than to rest and to relax) I cannot wait for a few days downtime.

I’ve spent the past few weeks worrying myself silly over things far out of my control. As a result, I’m now utterly exhausted and a rather run-down, hence I’ve stocked up on tissues and am currently sporting a Rudolf red nose and an air hostess-style nasal voice.…

Just Another Autumn Weekend

Autumn is upon us and there are just three weeks to go until Halloween arrives. Despite telling my daughter E this information, almost everyday she will ask us how much longer she must wait until we go out trick or treating. Bless her, I know she’s excited but there are only so many times you can cope with being asked the same question before your patience starts wearing thin.

My kids go crazy for Halloween, it is most probably their favourite holiday/ celebration of the year. I must admit I myself quite like Halloween, it’s the one occasion I don’t really need to dress for, what with my heavy eye-liner, dark clothing and wavy red hair, the only thing I’m missing is a broomstick! …
