#LivingArrows – The Little Things 27/52 (2019)

More often than not it’s the little things which matter the most in life, the little things which you enjoy, the little things which you love and the little things which get you through each day…

You know that age-old phrase “the world doesn’t revolve around you”, well that is certainly the case once you’ve had children. My life revolves around these two little things, well they aren’t so little these days but still, they are my World and what matters to them matters to me.

E has a great passion for reading, the very moment that she steps foot through the door from school, she’s desperate to read me her book.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Ship Shaped

A few weeks back J came home with a set of instructions for how to create his very own Viking ship, the deadline was officially meant to be this Friday just gone but his teacher very kindly extended this until Tuesday which allowed us an extra weekend to put a little more effort into our endeavours.

I have to say having looked at the design ideas, I wasn’t really fancying building a boat. I’m quite the crafty type but making a Viking ship seemed a little beyond my ability, thus I left it up to the Dad ‘n’ Lad team to sort out.…

Girl With A Passion For Planning

We are now over half way through the year and being the over-organised chick that I so happen to be, I’ve already started putting plans together for the next academic year. I’ve bought myself a rather spang-dangly, glitzy planner and have started penciling dates into the diary, all I need now is a new bag and I’m all set for September! Don’t get me wrong, I’m far from wishing time away, I just like to be ready and prepared well before required. 

We’ve got our overall calendar in the office upstairs which I like to tick off as time goes by, I also have our family diary filled with appointments and such-like in the kitchen as well as a weekly planner which goes on the wall for us to follow.…

Welcome to another week of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a photo-based 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.

With less than a fortnight to go until the summer holidays arrive, I am beginning to wind down ready for the ‘big break’. We have so much planned over the summer that already I’ve started putting lists together of things that I need to do, need to buy, need to sort and whilst it’s all very well getting organised, I really need to stop stressing so much about the small things and to focus on the bigger picture – it’s time for less lists and more living!…

Fun Ways To Enjoy Your Garden With Your Family This Summer

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s not hard to see why. It’s where we come together to cook and enjoy food or to catch up on the events of the day. It’s where we go to enjoy each other’s company, sit, dine and laugh without the TV demanding our attention. All that said… Who wants to spend their summer sitting around in a hot, stuffy kitchen? The sun is out and we should be, too. The garden is a wonderful place for all the family to get together. It combines the benefits of being in the natural world with the benefits of being around the people who are closest to you in the world. …
