A Day Of Design & Planning For Potty Palava.

As the title suggests, the past twenty-four hours have literally been filled with ‘design time’. I decided to get all creative and try to make my own blog logo. Do you like it? Drop me a comment at the bottom of this post and let me know. I wish I wasn’t so blinking particular, otherwise I might have spent less time with my head stuck in my Macbook fiddling with Photoshop. Oh the joys of being an arty geek and suffering with perfectionist OCD issues…

Anyhow, less of the technical twaddle and back to the basics, that being the usual hum-drum of my day-to-day existence.…

#LivingArrows- Making Monday Memories

As a fellow blogger I greatly enjoy reading other blogs, especially parenting blogs like my own. One of the amazing things that I have found about being a vlogger and blogger over the years is the amazing online community that you become part of. I have to say that I have a great group of online friends and whilst I have may not have met them all individually, I can say that each and every one of them have contributed somehow or other towards my life as a blogger, vlogger, parent and individual.

Each Sunday my ‘online tribe’ and I share our favourite photos from the week, it’s something that I have taken part in for over two years.…

Ninny Noo Noo AKA Richie the Rabbit, A Forever Friend.

For those of you that have the pleasure of knowing our beautiful little girl, you will be well aware that she has a bit of a thing for her ‘Ninny Noo Noo’ aka the soft rabbit that she carries everywhere without fail.

Whilst this super soft bunny is known to us (and all of our family and friends) as ‘Ninny’, which was E’s first attempt at sounding out the word ‘bunny’. Whilst E is now more than capable of saying the word ‘bunny’ she still refers to her furry little friend as ‘Ninny’ or occasionally when the poor bunny is probably in trouble of some sort E will refer to the rabbit in full as ‘Ninny Noo-Noo’.…

Jack of All Trades, Master of Jack Shizz

It has been a rough couple of years for me in terms of my career, since being made redundant back in 2011 I have bumbled along doing what I need to do for myself and my family to get by. There isn’t a great amount of opportunities in terms of employment within our local area, so I’ve tried to stick with what I know in terms of part-time jobs, sometimes it might be teaching and at other times it might be pulling pints behind the local bar. Mainly though, I have tried to make positive use of the time by simply enjoying parenthood.…
