With just two days to go before Christmas, the kids are (as we’d expected) bouncing off the walls with excitement.
This time last week, however, the kids were still busy rehearsing for their Christmas play, what was J’s last ever performance in Primary School.
Despite the lump in my throat, I managed to hold back most of the tears though let me assure me that it wasn’t easy. After seven years of watching my little man perform on the same stage, watching his final performance was somewhat emotional.
Our Little Elf
Both J & E rocked the stage, J was an ‘Evil Elf’ which suited him down to the ground, whereas his sister was a Super Bauble and she bauble-warbled like a pro!…
So here we are, halfway through October already! I don’t know about you but I’m ready for a rest, bring on that half-term holiday, I’m more than ready for a break.
With the darker nights starting to set in, we have been eeking out ever hour of sunlight we have before the curtains are closed and we settle down for the evening. Whether it’s a short walk, a quick scoot or a bike ride, it makes all the difference to the day.
Work Hard – PLAY HARD!
With all the rain we’ve had of late, it’s hard to believe that this photo was taken just last weekend whilst enjoying a play at the park.…
Every now and then we are sent products to review; usually toys, games and such-like for the kids, which they love to open and to share their thoughts upon – what kid wouldn’t? Whilst this photo will be used as part of an upcoming review, I thought I’d share it as part of the ‘ordinary moments’ series, as this has become something which they have grown used to over the years, yet something they still get incredibly excited about each and every time we receive a package to put to the test…
My kids are experts in unboxing and package peeling, they make swift work of the job that’s for sure.…
Friday’s here again, the first week of the new term has flown by in a flash. I can’t say that I’ve done a great deal in reality but as I do I’ll give it my best shot at finding a few #LittleLoves from the past seven days or so.
I picked up my Kindle with the full intention of re-reading Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series last week but then seemed to lose track somehow.
I haven’t really read much of anything since unless you count reading lyrics to sing along to at the piano.
With the daily routine kicking in I’ve found very little time to watch anything other than the odd soap on the box.…
As usual for my neck of the woods, it’s pouring it down. I am fairly used to the weather by now after thirty something years of it, but since having kids I have developed an inner hatred towards the rain. It’s bad enough finding ways in which to entertain two hyperactive little **** darlings, never mind having to do your best at being all round entertainer whilst being confined to four walls.
So far we have attempted the Pinterest picture perfect parent thing and made a fresh batch of play dough. The kids played with the warm dough for the whole of ten minutes before becoming bored and looking for their next fix.…
