#MySundayPhoto – A Holiday At Home

Once upon a time I would spend time each week collecting scenic shots specially for My Sunday Photo posts, these days I haven’t the time nor currently the energy to do so. Given that we’ve spent the bulk of our weekend lazing on the lawn, I decided it was more apt to post a paddling pool picture taken earlier today.

The temperatures are soaring at almost thirty degrees and being a redhead I don’t fare well in the heat, neither do our kids or the dogs for that matter. We are all utterly exhausted by the heat but despite feeling drained, we’ve tried our hardest to make the most of the sunshine.…

Things I have liked and loved in June 2018

June has flown by in what seems like a flash, the summer has well and truly arrived as we’ve had almost endless sunshine for the past month and despite being pale and pasty, I’m quite enjoying the extra rays.

Looking back it doesn’t seem like we’ve done an awful lot this past month but I’ve barely stopped for a second. I have listed some of my favoured moments from the month in this months instalment of things which I have #LikedandLoved

Getting Back To Blogging

As you may have (or not have) noticed I took a bit of a break from blogging, it was for almost a month in total and whilst I think the break did me some good I have to admit, it was pretty good to get back to the Macbook.…

#LivingArrows – Sea, Sand & Basset Hounds 26/53 (2018)

Whilst I was busy enjoying a beach ride, my children were just around the corner at the next beach taking a stroll with our rather beautiful basset hounds.

Much like myself, Molly and Maisy are rather partial to a plod along the shore. Both J & E love to take their leads and to show off our hounds by walking them here, there and everywhere. They may be rather smelly and incredibly noisy dogs but we love them despite their drooling, their barmy barking, Maisy’s love for shoes and their total ignorance towards our personal space.

Basset Bliss

The kids love going for a wander on the shore, we have mounds of seashells and pebbles that the kids have collected and carefully placed in the borders of our garden, I’ve yet to make it back from the beach without a souvenir which requires painting or sticking to something.…

Gaming Like A Ninja With Cobra Paw

Part of our weekly weekend routine has always been to watch a movie or to play board games around the table as a family. I find this time together to sit and unwind before yet another busy week ahead does wonders for us all, that and it brings us together to have fun and games without any distractions. We did precisely this last night and what a lot of laughs we had!

Cobra Paw

We were recently sent the Cobra Paw game to rate and review as part of the Bloggers Board Game Club. Published by Bananagrams, Cobra Paw is a fast paced, action-packed game which requires excellent observational skills and quick reflexes.…

#MySundayPhoto – Beach Riding Bliss

Once upon a time I would spend almost every weekend clip-clopping down to the beach with the local riding school. These days though I haven’t the time nor the finances to ride so regularly, this weekend however I made use of a riding voucher to do just that.

I have always been rather anxious when riding, it’s not that I’m a bad rider but after having kids I lost a certain amount of confidence when cantering, galloping and anything quicker than trot to be honest. I’m exactly the same when driving with the kids in the car, I ought to have relaxed by now but as they are my World and I am theirs, it’s rather difficult to let go and to live on the wild side.…
