#LittleLoves – Everything Seems To Be Changing

It’s been a funny old week really, everything around me seems to be changing and nothing feels ‘normal’ as such. Give it time and I am sure that I will adjust, until then I will ride the waves as best as I can.

There’s so much in life to love and to be thankful for, recent events have certainly taught me that. With that in mind here are my #LittleLoves for this week.


With J having returned to school this week, the reading books have made a come back. J and I have been reacquainted with the good old ‘Biff, Chip and Kipper‘ and I have been reminded just how much I love listening to my little man read. I’m fairly certain that J finds reading to be more of a chore than a pleasure but I can see that he tries his best.…

Getting Into A Decent Routine

Things seem to be looking up, I feel a whole lot better generally and I think it’s all down to getting into a decent routine.

I have to admit that I was dreading E starting nursery as I worried that I would feel lonely each morning without her company, in reality the past three days have been great! I’ve managed to get a crap load of jobs done each morning that I would never have managed to get done whilst looking after a threenager.

It’s reassuring to know that E is being kept busy and no doubt having uggins of fun whilst I get all the usual household chores done and dusted.  …

#LivingArrows – Back To School Special 

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows back to school special edition.

I have to admit that whilst I was dreading E starting nursery and leaving me on my lonesome, today actually went pretty well all things considering.

At first I just wandered around the house wondering how E was settling in and whether J was enjoying his first day in the juniors.

After I gave my head a wobble, I made a start on the chores and let me tell you that it’s blumming amazing how much you can get done without a little helper in tow.

I managed to clean the house top to bottom, hoover, list thirty items on eBay, sort out all my photos and start uploading them for printing, wrap up birthday parcels, nip to town to pick up some shopping, get three loads of washing done, order the kids some new clothes and fit in a coffee or two along the way.…

#MySundayPhoto – Standing Strong

A few months back we had some photographs taken of us together as a family by the wonderful and rather talented Jenna Carpenter. I finally managed to get hold of my very own copy of said photographs this afternoon and thought I ought to share some snaps with you.

Flicking through the shots made me think back to that summer evening running around in the fields listening to the children giggle with glee as Jenna chased them around with her camera trying to get some decent shots of my buzz bombs.

I want to try to arrange a photo shoot at least every other year, the kids are growing so fast and trying to capture memories of us all together as a family is important to me.…
