#LittleLoves – Catalogues, Christmas and Cardigans

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LittleLoves, apologies for the late post but my children have both been absent from school due to a random outbreak of gastroenteritis which seems to have bypassed my children thank god but has shut the school resulting in an unplanned family day rendering me exhausted.


You can tell Christmas is coming when the Smyths catalogue lands on your mat. Not only do the kids both love looking through all the amazing toys in this catalogue but I too get a little giddy too! I can’t wait for Christmas this year, partly because the extension should be done and dusted by then but mainly because Christmas is just magic isn’t it?…

Diagnosis Delivered

The Waiting Game

It’s been almost five and half years since I first suspected that our son may be on the spectrum.

Since then we have battled our way through endless appointments, travelled hundreds of miles and have spent what feels like forever waiting for a diagnosis.

It doesn’t seem right that diagnosing a child with any issue should take five years, whilst ASD may be a complex disorder it isn’t something which I myself see as particularly difficult in identifying. It is simply the lack of services that seems to cause the hold up and that is not just local but a national issue.…

Perfectly Pretty With The Sue Ryder Pink Children’s Dressing Table

My daughter is a total Princess, she loves anything pink or girly. Whilst E is only three years of age, she already enjoys having her hair styled, nails painted and most recently dabbling with Mummy’s makeup.

Being the total Diva that she is, E would love her very own ‘dressing table’ at which she can sit and perfect being pretty. I was therefore over the moon when Sue Ryder offered us the opportunity to review one of their snazzy Pink Children’s Dressing Tables.

#LivingArrows – Beautiful In Black And White

Welcome to this weeks ‘not very colourful’ edition of #LivingArrows. I am not sure about you but I love old fashioned photos, some pictures are simply beautiful in black and white.

Life is colourful, chaotic and darn right crazy at times. I find that black and white images can simplify the subject matter and often bring more meaning and sentiment to the portrait.

My children are beautiful with or without colour, there is something so timeless about these two images, both of which I plan to print, frame and display in the house at some point soon.

My Boy – Beautiful In Black And White

My Perfect Princess

I love these two kids with my everything, they are my entire World and I am so very proud of how each of them are growing and becoming such amazing little people.…
