Returning To The Routine

The holidays are about to come to an end and although we’ve had a fortnight off from school and work, it feels like far longer. The kids and I are now more than ready to return into some kind of routine and I’m quite looking forward to starting a new term.

I’m well aware that we are still in the midst of winter and  its flipping freezing for a further two months, but the title ‘spring term’ seems to offer a little light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas has been and gone, the decorations are now down and I’m therefore done with the dark nights and the winter weather!…

#MySundayPhoto – Blue Skies, Bluebells & Butterflies

I would have written this post earlier only my little lady took a sudden turn for the worst by throwing her stomach contents down the porcelain telephone, moments later we registered her temperature as scorchio and as a result our bed is now being occupied by our beloved daughter as she convalesces.

Here’s hoping that come morning the temperature has waned and that our little lady has turned a corner. I’m not planning on sending E to School as I don’t wish for her class friends to catch whatever bugs she may be harbouring but neither do I really want to have to wait around in the doctor’s surgery first thing tomorrow morning.…

#MySundayPhoto – I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

Following a busy day behind the bar I jumped into the car and began my journey home. Whilst driving through the valley I couldn’t help but to notice the beauty which surrounded me.

The sun was gently glowing from behind the hedgerows casting a golden light upon the shimmering spring shower puddles, the flowers were in full bloom and the birds were twittering in the trees.

Spring has finally sprung and the countryside looks fresh following its long winters sleep. Don’t get me wrong, I love the winter months as I do the warm summer sunshine but there’s nothing quite like those mid-seasons. Spring and even more so, Autumn for bringing beauty and endless colour to the landscape in which we live.…

#MySundayPhoto – Days In The Dunes

Whilst I was out busy working behind the bar this afternoon my husband took the kidlets down the beach for some much-needed fresh air.

He may have smashed his beloved phone screen but he somehow managed to snap this beauty, a sunshine shot of the kids having climbed the dunes with the dog in tow. It was a pretty windy walk, poor J looks as if he can barely keep his eyes open!

Fun In The Dunes

I love coming home from work to be shown photos from of my family from the day. It reassures me that whilst I, the feline of the species may be away the mice certainly continue to play.…

#LittleLoves – Spring Showers, Science And Singing

Welcome to this weeks #LittleLoves, I for one am certainly glad that it’s the weekend although whilst most people tend to kick back and relax for two days I seem to do the complete opposite. Still, I enjoy having Paul home and being able to spend some time as a family together before the next week dawns upon us.

I don’t feel that my offerings for this weeks #LittleLoves post are hugely inspiring but here goes…

Sadly this week I haven’t really read an awful lot, I am still trying to complete a few books which I currently have on the go.…
