#TheOrdinaryMoments – My Seasonal Sacred Space

We are now in September and autumn has officially arrived as what were once luscious, green leaves are now casting from the trees in the most beautiful shades of yellow, orange, red, and brown. Autumn is my favourite season of the year as there’s so much to celebrate what with Halloween, Bonfire Night and the run-up to Christmas – it’s a majestically magical time of year though I sadly suspect that 2020 may be somewhat different.

I imagine that there will be no trick or treating nor public firework displays to attend this year. I worry that come October we’ll most likely be back in lockdown, but needs must – we must do whatever we possibly can in order to protect ourselves and others from this vicious virus, which I hope and pray that we can combat somehow or other.…

#MySundaySnapshot – The Daily Commute 36/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Well, I am officially back at work; though I am now in a new role working within a new setting, which requires a thirty-minute commute each way along some of the most scenic roads that I have ever driven.

Though the early mornings still feel a little alien at present, I’m sure that with time I’ll soon adapt to the new routine, though whether I’ll adapt to ‘the new normal’ is another issue entirely…

Thanks for reading my #MySundaySnapshot post, I look forward to catching up and sharing your #MySundaySnapshot pictures either through your own posts, social media shares or comments upon this post.…

#LivingArrows – So Long Summer 35/52 (2020)

Summer has come to a close and whilst I’m rather sad to kiss goodbye to our time together as a family, I’m also rather relieved to return to a routine and to nestle into a little normality…

The kids have spent their final week off enjoying time with family and friends, taking trips to the park, having a hair cut (in J’s case), going for strolls along the shore, and relaxing whenever and wherever possible prior to chaos commencing as September arrives and school begins.

Park Play


And so that’s it – summer is officially over! Here’s hoping that we move onto an into September safely.…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in August 2020

Sadly, August has come to an end, summer is no longer… School is about to start for September and whilst I’m not entirely sure as to whether or not I’m ready to commence with the chaos, the time is nigh. So without further ado, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout August.

Thirteen Years Wed

As of this month, Paul and I have been married for thirteen years. It doesn’t feel like thirteen years have passed since we walked down the aisle but I guess time flies both when you’re having fun and when you’ve got kids – I seriously believe that time flicked to double speed the moment that the kids came along.…
