#TheOrdinaryMoments – Feel The Sand Between Your Toes

If there’s one thing I love to do, it’s to feel the warmth of the sun on my face, the cool breeze through my hair and the sand between my toes.

You can’t beat taking five to sit at the beach: watching the water as it laps at the shore, soaking up the smells of the salty sea air with vague wafts of freshly cut grass, BBQ’s and suntan lotion, whilst listening to the kids laugh and scream as they run amuck.

This is exactly what I was doing earlier this week. It felt great to kick back, to let my hair down and to soak up the sun whilst Paul took the dog for a wander and the kids busied themselves on the beach.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Summertime Sadness 17/52 (2019)

Welcome to this weeks edition of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a weekly photo-sharing 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.

We began this week with the most beautiful weather; the winter wear was abandoned in favour for lighter, summer clothing. The sun beamed all day long and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky to be seen yet here we are at the weekend suffering yet another storm.

For a moment I thought summer may well be on the way, I’d even made a start upon gaining a suntan of sorts (being a redhead I usually stay milky white or go burnt-lobster red within a day, there is no in-between).…

#LittleLoves – April 2019

We’ve had an incredibly busy but fun-packed April. With Easter, the half term holidays, Paul’s birthday and the day-to-day grind, we simply haven’t had time to stop – it’s been enjoyable but exhausting! So without further waffle, here are a few of my #LittleLoves for this month.


I’ve continued to work my way through Fern Cotton’s ‘Happy’ and have almost finished this book but otherwise I’ve simply not had the time to sit and to read. I keep promising myself to make time, I’ve had my Kindle out on the side charging numerous times yet fail to relax and to read.…

Finding A Great Place To Settle For Your Family

There comes a time where we might wish to settle down and create the family unit we have dreamed of for some time. We might be in various stages of this development, because not everyone gets to experience a careful and planned route. It might be that you’ve been living in an apartment with your spouse and two-year old child, and now you think it’s time to live somewhere more comforting. It might be that your current family home is in an area you wish to move away from.

You might just want a fresh start. Perhaps you’ve done the family thing for some time, and now you wish to experience a new location, or move for another job.…

#LivingArrows – Awesome Easter 16/52 (2019)

We have had the most amazing bank-holiday weekend; it has been one of the best Easters that we have ever had. The sun has shone continuously for the entire time and we are now much-like Lindt bunnies as we are golden, sun-kissed and chocolate-filled – what more could you ask for?

Over the past four days we’ve enjoyed photo shoots, meals out, evenings out, time with friends, live music, egg hunts, swimming, beach walks, playing on the park, water play, garden games and time with the family – it has been absolutely awesome!

The kids were spoilt rotten with easter eggs, chocolate, money, books, toys and all sorts of treats over the weekend.…
