A Very Barbie Birthday

It’s been an eventful day and though it began oooohhh far too early, who can blame my daughter for being a little excited? It’s not every day that you turn seven years old and my gosh, what an amazing day she has had! It truly has been a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

E has, as always, been spoilt rotten with a tent, a sleeping bag, almost every single Frozen 2 Lego set imaginable, a Jo-Jo Siwa doll, a stash of cash, a gigantic Barbie house, Barbie clothes, Barbie shoes, a Barbie ‘box-house’, and yet more Barbie dolls… oh it’s been a BARBIE BIRTHDAY and as a result, E’s room is now a Barbie BOMBSITE!…

#LivingArrows – Staying Put & Staying Safe 33/52 (2020)

Though the sunshine has dissipated somewhat, my memories from this past week are well recorded as I captured copious sunshine snaps which I’m sure that come winter I’ll be scrolling through whilst wishing for warmer days.

I’ve really enjoyed spending time sitting in the sunshine watching and listening to the kids scream and splash about, especially so as they haven’t been able to have a holiday this year.

Smiles In The Sun

Though many people are spending their summer touring around the UK, we need to stay close to home at present with all that’s going on with my Dad. …

#TheOrdinaryMoments – The Splendid Sunshine

We’ve been blessed with almost seven solid days of sunshine and let me tell you – we’ve basked and bathed under the sun’s beams like piglets under a heat lamp – it’s been bliss!

I’m so glad that we’ve got the garden ship-shape and sorted for summer; the rattan furniture seems to have made all the difference, as has the new trampoline and the recent delivery of sand – the kids have had such fun in the sun.

Paul and I have enjoyed evenings sat outside in the sunshine with a coffee and a card game, we are so lucky to have such a great garden.…

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.

After whinging about the weather for weeks, we’ve been given the most glorious sunshine and with it, some terrific temperatures.

Nothing about 2020 has been normal thus far, including the weather as earlier this week we had the biggest storm we’ve ever experienced in this area. With constant roars of thunders and lightning flashing every other like disco lights, it was the longest, strongest, and most impressive storm that I have ever witnessed.…

The Siblings Project – August 2020

I can barely believe that we are in August already – time feels to be slipping through my fingers and though we’ve had months at home, it doesn’t really feel all that long.

Whilst I have some lovely pictures of the kids, I don’t seem to have many of them together really, thus I’ve pinched a picture from my hubby which was taken earlier today to share for this month’s siblings project post.

I feel a bit bad as many of the pictures of the kids which my husband tends to take are often without my presence as I’ve been spending a fair amount of time with my folks offering assistance and care for my Father.…
