I’ve spent the majority of this week sky-gazing whilst soaking outside. I can’t tell you how great it feels to lay back in the bubbles whilst watching the clouds float by. Sadly the weather is now far too wet and windy to be sat outside but I’m hoping that once Paul builds our pergola that we can enjoy the hot tub all year round. Bring on the spring sunshine!… View Post

#LivingArrows – Hot Tub Happy 07/52 (2021)

Though it’s been brass monkeys outside this week, it didn’t stop the kids jumping into their swimming costumes and hopping into our recent addition, the hot tub. What I had imagined being a relaxing soak under the stars became a swirling, whirling, chaotic splash about in the disco-light flashing hot tub accompanied by two overexcited, giggly children… so much for kicking back and taking five! Splash and Smile Happy Days The weather is now much milder and sadly as a result of the temperature increase, it’s now rather wet and windy which doesn’t make for happy hot tubbing. Thankfully Paul… View Post

The Siblings Project – February 2021

It’s currently the February half-term holidays and as we technically cannot go anywhere or do much of anything as we are still ‘living in lockdown’, we’ve done our best to have a holiday at home. The kids are rather enjoying having a break from the books and I’m hoping that it won’t be too long before we can return to normality. Though I’m getting a little tired of refereeing the enitvitable sibling squabbles which seem to arise from time to time, the odd argument here and there is hardly surprising given that we’re all stuck sharing the same four walls… View Post

Happy Valentines Day 2021

We may be living in lockdown and unable to spend time with our family and friends but thank’s to the power of technology, we’re still more than able to send our best wishes and express our love to our nearest and dearest. So I thought I’d take this chance to wish you all the very best valentines day – I do hope that you are able to spend the day with someone special. I was spoilt this morning as I was woken to breakfast in bed which was served on a brand new, wooden tray that had hearts cut from… View Post

#MySundaySnapshot – Stunning Sunrise 07/52 (2021)

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’s fa-fa-freezing outside right now but oh so beautiful, and whilst I’d have loved to have stopped mid-drive to photograph the amazing icicles which currently hang from the hedgerows, I’ve decided to share this stunning snapshot taken during sunrise this morning by Becky, our family friend and ‘super shopkeeper’. Winter may be dark, dull, and dreary but it’s also beautifully breathtaking, it depends entirely upon your perspective. “Sunrise, sunrise… View Post
