#MySundayPhoto – Dishwasher Dog

Basset hounds are quite frankly the weirdest breed of dog you will ever come across in terms of behaviour. There is something so strangely human about these dogs, Maisy and Molly certainly keep us on our toes whilst splitting our sides with laughter.

Here is a snap which I took earlier this week of our beautiful basset Maisy demanding the dishes prior to them being washed. We refer to both Molly and Maisy as ‘pre-wash’ for this very reason but never before have I seen a dog actually sit on the dishwasher door.

Here’s hoping that Maisy grows out of this habit as whilst she may be a puppy, she ain’t all that small these days and if she continues to put her weight on the dishwasher door then I’m not so sure we will have a dishwasher left for her to lounge upon!…

#LivingArrows – BBQ Babes 23/53 (2018)

We met up with our good friends Vicky, Mike, Viv and Derick for a BBQ over the weekend. It was once again fabulous weather and whilst the sun was shining we barbecued our burgers, sizzled our sausages and I apparently sizzled myself.

Given that the UK seems to be in the height of a heatwave, I really ought to start using a little more sun tan lotion on my shoulders as I’m beginning to resemble a lobster – my children on the other hand are covered in suncream!

Heres a couple of snaps which I shot whilst the kids were busy playing in Vic and Mike’s garden, I say playing but in J’s case I actually mean reading.…

#MySundayPhoto – Blackpool Baby!

The hubby and I somehow managed to wangle ourselves a kid-free day out to Blackpool this week. We’ve both been desperate for new clothes and given that the cheapest and simplest option happened to be in Blackpool we hit the M6 and made our what felt much like Benidorm thanks to the blazing sunshine.

I felt a little bad that we didn’t take the kids, not that we hit the Pleasure Beach or the Sandcastle as we were far too busy parading around Primark to hit the prom. Just being by the beach with the scorching sunshine gave me that guilty feeling and whilst I’m certain that they much preferred spending time with their Grandparents, I couldn’t help but to feel like a bad Mother.…

Things I have liked and loved in May 2018

May has certainly been the month for sunshine, we’ve spent the past few weeks literally baking in our back garden and I’ve enjoyed every moment of what I guess will be the British summer this year.

Along with the sunshine there’s been plenty of other thing to enjoy, I have listed a few of which in this months instalment of things which I have #LikedandLoved.

Yes To York

Earlier this month our beautiful boy, J went on a three-day residential to York with his class friends. Whilst I worried myself sick as to whether he’d eat, clean, sleep and generally get along I needn’t have stressed as he had a super time.…

#LivingArrows – Bubble Bird & City Strolls In York 22/53 (2018)

It feels as if life has been on fast forward for the past fortnight, J was busy out and about with his class down in York the other week and whilst I haven’t had the chance to write about his residential I thought I’d take this opportunity to share a picture of our Prince outside York Minster.

J had an amazing few days touring York with his class friends, I on the other hand spent most of my time worried sick as to whether he’d eat, wash, sleep and all the other things which I needn’t have worried about whatsoever as he absoloutly fine!…
