Things that I have #LikedandLoved in January 2020

Jee Wizz January has felt like it has gone on forever! The dark, dank winter days seem to have dragged, I’m not a fan of the cold nor January, to be honest.

On a positive note, here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout the past thirty-one, long, dull days.

New Year

As always we brought in the new year at home and for the first time this year our son stayed up to share the celebrations with us. I rather enjoyed watching the fireworks from London with the little man in tow, though I’m not sure that he was all that keen on joining us in dancing to Auld Langs Syne.…

Helping Your Kids With Their Education

If you want to make sure that your child has the best possible start in life, you need to look at their education primarily. Education is one thing that massively affects the kinds of chances you are going to have later on in life, and by ensuring that it is done as well as possible you will be giving your child much more of a life to be getting on with. Of course, the school does much of the work, but if you want to you can help your children with their education too. In fact, in many cases, this is going to be a very good idea, and will ensure that your child is much more likely to succeed in general.…

#LivingArrows – Just Jumpers 04/52 (2020)

It’s been yet another ‘Manic Monday’ with after-school clubs, hair appointments, the household chores and a husband suffering from what appears to be flu.

I wouldn’t mind being so busy if it weren’t for the freezing, wet weather – I’m forever layering up and moments later layering down as I whisk in and out of the house. I feel as I’ve been back and forth all day never quite getting warm before venturing back out into the cold.

The kids must be mad as they are quite happy to head out in just a jumper, they don’t seem to feel the cold like I do – it must be an age thing! …

#TheOrdinaryMoments – A Marvellous Meal Out

It’s not often that we go out as a family, at least not for lunch that is. My kids you see are rather fussy over their food, they have never been the easiest of eaters especially when away from home.

Over the years we’ve wasted countless amounts of money,  buying the kids food in restaurants, cafes, bars and such-like. No matter how hard we’ve tried to encourage them to eat, both J & E will sit and pick at their food and eat next to nothing.

It seemed far easier, therefore, to pop to a local shop and to prepare and pack a picnic.…

#MySundaySnapshot – A Spectacular Sunset 04/52 (2020)

It’s only January but it feels as if it has been a long, dark winter. Though there have been some spectacular sunsets of late, I for one cannot wait for the lighter nights to arrive.

It feels as if it’s dark upon waking and dark upon arriving home, leaving very little time to enjoy any light whatsoever. I may be pasty pale and frazzle in the sun but I am desperate for some sunlight!…
