It’s been so long since we’ve seen snow that I’d almost forgotten what it looks like. Earlier this week the white stuff arrived and whilst it didn’t stay for long it was a lovely sight to see.

Sadly the kids didn’t get the chance to go sledging as before they were even able to get up, ready and dressed the snow had melted leaving slushy puddles in its absence.…

Things that I have #LikedandLoved in February 2020

I’ll be honest, I don’t really feel much like celebrating the ‘highs from February’, it’s been a terrible month and not one which I ever wish to repeat. Nevertheless, I’ll give it a shot and try to list a few of the things which I have  #LikedandLoved throughout the past 29 days.

Celebrating Valentines Day & Fifteen Years Together

Paul and I have now been together for fifteen years in total, it doesn’t actually feel that long but then time seems to fly by once you are an adult. We didn’t go out or celebrate the occasion as we would usually do, things here are a bit hectic so we were quite happy to sit on the sofa with the television sharing a few sweet treats.…

#LivingArrows – Snow Angels 5/52 (2019)

Having woken to a dusting of snow, the children couldn’t wait to get wrapped up warm and to head out to play in the white stuff. J was first out, pelting with me with snowballs from left, right and centre as I desperately tried to de-ice the car. He was super excited by the arrival of the snow, though disappointed that he was unable to head out sledging as school beckoned.

Thumbs Up For Snow

E meanwhile busied herself with making snow angels, whilst laying upon her freshly washed, pale pink jacket. I must remember to buy her darker coloured clothing once she has outgrown her current clobber. …

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Snow Way!

We haven’t had a decent snowfall since I was pregnant with E. Whilst E has seen snow, it has only ever been a few centimetres in depth and has never lasted for more than twenty-four hours.

This week I was half-hoping for a ‘snow day’, I say half-hoping as E had her school trip and I knew that she’d be heartbroken if it were to be cancelled. Sadly, the snow arrived but there simply wasn’t enough to warrant a snow-day (although much to E’s disappointment, the trip was postponed to stay on the safe side). Nevertheless, we made the most of the white stuff by taking a few pictures, making a few snow-angels and throwing the odd snowball.…

Things I have liked and loved in January (2019)

With January coming to a close, I have taken the time to reflect upon the past thirty-one days and to write down the highlights from month gone by. So without further ado, here are some of the things which I have #LikedandLoved during January.

New Year

We celebrated the New Year in style with family and friends who came to visit, those who were unable to join us (as they were on the other side of the Earth) we spent time video-chatting with and overall we had a fun-filled, festive start to the year.

Routine Returned

Following what felt like quite a lengthy holiday, the children relished getting back into a routine.…
