What Day Is It?

Like most of you, I’m currently struggling to work out what day of the week it is, nevermind what the date or time might be. It’s always the way between Christmas and New Year, it’s as if each day merges into another but nothing matters so long as your fridge is full and you have plenty of pajamas clean and ready in the cupboard.

I’ve spent the past few days clearing and cleaning clutter from the house and sorting through the endless amounts of packaging which we collected over Christmas, all whilst living on a diet of cheese, chocolate, and nibbles.…

#LivingArrows – A Cracking Christmas 52/52 (2019)

This time last week we were still gearing ourselves up for Christmas and less than a week later it’s all over. How did that happen?!

The kids have had the best Christmas, they were both spoilt rotten by family, friends and of course Santa. It was magical watching them both open their stockings, sacks, and piles of parcels on Christmas day, they were buzzing with excitement and so grateful for each and everything that they were given.

We’ve since unboxed, opened and played with almost every single item that they received and rest assured there are no excuses for boredom in the near future.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – From Chaos To Calm

I’m not sure whether it’s just us but Christmas seems to leave our living room looking much like a disaster zone.

Having watched the kids unwrap and open their piles of parcels, I almost instantly set about clearing the clutter by arranging their gifts into one area, I just cannot cope with the mess you see. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the kids having their toys out to play with for a day or two, after all, that’s what Christmas is all about.

Whilst it drives my darling husband stir crazy, I just can’t sit in a sitting room surrounded by ‘stuff’.…

Welcome to what will be the final week of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series for 2019. I cannot believe that I began this linky a whole year ago, how time flies! I’ve really enjoyed sharing, viewing and commenting upon everyone’s snaps throughout the year.

#LittleLoves – December 2019

Christmas is always crazy in this house, it’s a manic month filled with none-stop preparation for the big day. Once Christmas is done and dusted we are finally able to relax in a seasonal slump, which is usually when the days begin to merge into one and other and I lose track of the time, day, date and year…

So before I delve into yet another tub of Treeselets whilst watching the television, here are a few of my #LitteLoves from the past month.

Earlier this month I put together a box of Christmas books which has since taken pride of place in my daughter’s bedroom.…
