#TheOrdinaryMoments – Hugs With The Hound

Once the kids have snuggled into their beds and sound asleep, Paul and I settle on the sofa with snacks, drinks, and the dog… There’s nothing quite like having hugs with the hound following a busy day, she may be rather slobbery and incredibly hairy but I couldn’t care less- she’s adorable!

Each and every evening Maisy hops onto the couch and snuggles herself into my feet, she will then slowly but surely crawl further upon me, often making it completely impossible to see or to watch the television at all.

Our house wouldn’t be our home without the presence of four paws, we’ve spent a few days in the past (whilst moving house and getting ready for our holidays) without a pooch and the house was squeaky clean but scarily silent, though I’m far happier living with the fur, the slobber, the drool, and the many doggy delights.…

#LivingArrows – The Little Things 27/52 (2019)

More often than not it’s the little things which matter the most in life, the little things which you enjoy, the little things which you love and the little things which get you through each day…

You know that age-old phrase “the world doesn’t revolve around you”, well that is certainly the case once you’ve had children. My life revolves around these two little things, well they aren’t so little these days but still, they are my World and what matters to them matters to me.

E has a great passion for reading, the very moment that she steps foot through the door from school, she’s desperate to read me her book.…

Things I have Liked and Loved in February 2019

February is technically the shortest month in the year, yet it seemed to drag somewhat which feels a little unusual as I’m forever mentioning how time flies. We’ve certainly not stopped throughout this month, both Paul and I have run ourselves ragged trying to get as much as we possibly can done and dusted around the house and we still have plenty to work on.

Without any further waffle, here are a few of the things which I haveĀ #LikedandLoved during February.

Fourteen Years Together & Valentines Day

Having met and started dating on 13th February 2005, Paul and I have since celebrated Valentines Day twenty-four hours prior to the publicised date.…

#LivingArrows – Manic Monday 7/52 (2019)

It hasn’t been the most relaxed nor restful start to the half term holidays. I spent this morning visiting the A&E department for a second set of X-rays to assess the damage done during a fall earlier last week, meanwhile Paul took the dog to the vets (where she was being spayed and having a lump removed from her head) then left the kids with my folks before rushing off to take the Mini for a service.

Having established that the fracture is in fact ripped ligaments, I then made my way to Tesco where I played trolley dash before meeting up with Paul and heading towards Asda for a bite to eat.…

Happy 1st Birthday To Maisy, Our Beautiful Basset Hound.

One year to this day our beautiful basset-hound Maisy was born. Whilst it was a further eight weeks until Maisy came to live with us, I still clearly remember receiving the text to let us know that our puppy had been born.

Paul and I were visiting our tazzy pals at their house, where we shared a variety of amazing curries whilst having a barrel of laughs as we played games, shared stories and emptied many bottles of wine. The text came shortly after we sat ourselves at the table, I was barely able to contain myself as I learnt that our puppy had arrived, Paul and I knew exactly what we were signing ourselves up for and we couldn’t wait!…
