#MySundaySnapshot – Winter Woodland 2/52 (2019)

Welcome to the second week of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a brand new blog-linky which you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Can I just say a huge thanks to all those that took part over this past week, I really enjoyed looking through all the stunning shots which you shared and I was surprised by how popular the linky seems already. Apologies if the text link for the badge didn’t work, I have since altered the code and hopefully there shouldn’t be any issues as of this week onwards.…

For the Love of Treeselets!

Having worked hard to lose almost three stone last year, I seem to have lost all desire to diet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m far from happy with my figure but I seem to lack the lustre to limit myself when it comes to food.

I really ought to cut out the crud, but I can’t help but to fill my face with whatever happens to be hanging around in the cupboards. Most recently I have discovered a love for Treeselets – a festive fad which I believed to be a seasonal sensation.

I was never really a fan of Cheeselets but having spent the day driving with my husband and his pack of Treeselets, I suffered a ‘hangry’ attack (hangry is where hunger evolves into anger).…

Living For The Weekend

The weekend has finally arrived, it’s therefore time to party like an animal and to live it large. In my case however that animal would be an over-tired sloth and the only thing I’m planning on getting a large amount of is SLEEP!

Gone are the days when I would arrive home from a Friday shift, jump in the shower and make a start on getting ready for a night out on the town. No longer do I search my wardrobe for possible party wear or bop along to the latest tunes on the radio whilst curling my eyelashes and ousting my hair with an extra-large can of hair spray.…

Routine Has Returned

The kids have been back at school for the past three days and already I feel like routine has returned. We are now back to helping with homework, emptying bags, shoe polishing, cleaning and filling lunch boxes and the wonders of the weekly chores. It feels as if Christmas and the new years celebrations were a million years ago, as my mind is now occupied with the day-to-day tasks and tribulations.

As I’d anticipated and expected, it’s been less than a week and already I am exhausted. To add to the exhaustion, I’ve also managed to injure myself somehow and am currently struggling with severe back pain.…

#LivingArrows – Taking A Gamble & Our Pampered Princess 1/52 (2019)

Welcome to the first #LivingArrows post for 2019. If you haven’t read my previous posts within this series #LivingArrows is a linky (run by Donna from What The Redhead Said) celebrating childhood. The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahil Gibran “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and each Monday I share moments from our week as part of this linky.

I’ll be honest, it hasn’t been the best Monday that I’ve ever had. I feel like I seem to be lacking purpose, motivation or something… I’m just not quite sure what I’m doing to be honest!…
