The Siblings Project – November 2019

It hasn’t been the nicest of November’s so far what with the wet weather, a sickness bug and the dark nights but we’re marching through the month as best we can.

It’s just been too wet, too cold and too dark to play outside which has lead to us suffering from a serious case of four-wall-fatigue. I quite like snuggling on the sofa watching television with the twinkly lights shining, a candle burning and the heating on full but I can only hack the winter hibernation for so long.

The kids are worn out bless them, they’ve had so much on recently with school and all their extra-curricular clubs and activities that by the weekend they’re just too tired to tango.…

#LivingArrows – Wading Through The Week 45/52 (2019)

Whilst some weeks seem to whizz by, others are a real trudge as I feel as if I’m literally wading through the week.

As I mentioned in my previous post; the kids weren’t so well over the weekend, thus they didn’t do a whole lot unlike Paul and I who spent almost every second of every hour cleaning, cooking or waiting upon our little lovelies. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love having kids and I love being a Mum but it can be really tough at times, especially so when illness occurs. As you can imagine, I’ve not exactly been snap-happy this week with being confined to our four-wall-fortress (aka spew city), thus the photo used this week was taken a few weeks back whilst out on a walk.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – A Poorly Prince

Well that was a waste of a weekend! Our little man hardly ever gets sick but during the early hours of Friday, he was struck down with a horrid stomach bug. This resulted in the poor mite plastering his high sleeper bed, his desk, (and his brand new laptop), the full length of the corridor, the top of the stairs, our bedroom and both bathrooms with vast amounts of vomit.

I’ve never seen so much sick if I’m honest and neither Paul nor I quite knew where to begin with the cleanup. It was quite literally up the walls!

I’ve never been so thankful to have a vax carpet cleaner in my life, let’s just say if it wasn’t for that magnificent machine, I suspect that we may have been ordering new carpets for almost the entirety of upstairs.…

#MySundaySnapshot – Sparkles In The Sky 45/52 (2019)

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.

It may be cold outside but there’s one thing sure to lure me from the warmth of my four-wall fortress and that’s fireworks…

They may slightly dangerous and a little on the loud side but I just love watching fireworks, always have and always will. There’s something really romantic and mildly magical about seeing sparkles in the sky.

We usually visit two fireworks displays each year: one just by my parent’s place, which is a small but special event (as the pyrotechnician behind the magic just so happens to be the very same man who made the fireworks which we watched at our wedding), and the other, much bigger event takes place just down the road from where we live.…

#LivingArrows – Baby You’re A Firework 44/52 (2019)

Bonfire night came early for us this year, as we visited a very short but sweet local display over the weekend. We’ve stocked up on sparklers and are all ready for round two tomorrow night, here’s hoping that the weather stays on our side and that we can enjoy the display without getting drenched.

Once over E was a massive fan of fireworks, so much so that when my Dad had asked her what she wanted for Christmas, her answer was simply “fireworks Grandad, I want fireworks!”. Thankfully my folks didn’t buy our then two-year-old fireworks for Christmas. However, shortly after (on New Year’s Eve) they rocked up with a box of you guessed it… fireworks.…
