#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.

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.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Bank Holiday Weekend Banter

Being parents in a pandemic ain’t no easy task – the kids are almost always desperate for your attention either to quench their boredom, to fix their Lego or to look at their latest ‘whatever’ leaving very little time for you to get on with the housework or… to have fun with friends.

Nights out are no longer, there is no option to take a break and that can be really draining at times. Don’t get me wrong, we love our kids and each other but after a certain amount of time (it’s been six months since lockdown first began) you begin to crave alternative adult conversation. …

A Diverse and Divine Twist Upon Tradition With The Modern Witch Tarot

First published in 2019 by Liminal 11, The Modern Witch Tarot is a diverse, contemporary take upon the traditional tarot inspired by fashion and modern witches from the everyday walk of life.

Having seen quite a few walkthrough videos of The Modern Witch Tarot, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this deck for quite some time and so as you can imagine, I was elated when Liminal 11 agreed to offer me a copy of this delightfully diverse and divine deck in exchange for a review.

Lisa Sterle

Designed by Lisa Sterle, The Modern Witch Tarot was created during a low point of Lisa’s life: Jaded by the trudge of feeling trapped within a dead-end-design job, Lisa felt her creativity, passion for art, and general faith in humanity was being drained.…

#MySundaySnapshot – My Peaceful Place 35/52 (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.

Whilst I usually stick to posting scenic shots each Sunday, I decided to do something a little different this week. Rather than capturing tranquility within nature, I decided to capture the calm within the storm that is our house…

I usually finish each day by enjoying a hot, bubbly bath, accompanied by candles, a cold drink, some good music, and my rubber ducky! There’s nothing better than taking a bath to relax and to ease the muscles and the mind after a busy day.…
