Happy 38th Birthday Paul

Not only is today Good Friday (or ‘Lucky Friday’ as my seven-year-old daughter calls it) it is also my husband’s thirty-eighth birthday. Though we are still living in lockdown, we’ve made the most of the new rules and the wonderful weather as over the past hour or two we’ve had a few family members pop by and pay us a visit.

The kids have worked so hard over the past few months both at ‘homeschool’ and whilst back at school following the lengthy lockdown, and are quite rightly looking forward to the upcoming Easter holidays – they most definitely deserve some time out without the worries of schoolwork and such-like. My Little Unicorn My Not So Little Merman Other than school, homework, and sticking to our regular routine, we’ve not done a huge amount this week but it’s about to get busier as… View Post

#MySundaySnapshot – Blooming Bright 13/52 (2021)

With the clocks leaping forward by an hour during the early hours, I’m more than ready to spring forward in time and to enjoy those lighter nights ahead. The past few days haven’t felt much like spring as we’ve been battered by rain, hale, and gale-force winds, which is about right for the weekend.
