#TheOrdinaryMoments – Another Fine Fest

Following a rather sudden change to our plans for this weekend, my husband and I found ourselves footloose and fancy-free to do as we pleased. Never the type to waste a weekend, we took the kids along to the annual gala where they feasted upon hotdogs and ice cream, bounced themselves silly on the inflatables, smashed a few plates for kicks and spent their pennies on books and toys before heading back home to get ready for a night with their Nana and Grandad.

After dropping the kids with my folks, Paul and I got our glad rags on, went out for a spot of tea at the pub then made our way to Ulverston to celebrate ‘Another Fine Fest’.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Happy To Be Home

Our little lad spent half of the working week busy with his buddies on a residential trip, to say that I missed him is an understatement! I know fine well that J is more than capable of coping without us for a few days but I’m not sure that I feel quite the same…

I cannot tell you how glad I am to have our little guy back where he’s meant to be, he too seems pretty happy to be home. Having arrived back at base with what appeared to be an impressive tan, J then hopped into the shower for a serious scrub, where he/ we discovered that his brilliant bronzing was in fact dirt.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Unicorn Magic

Being Mummy to a little lady I’ve grown accustomed to all things pink, glittery and fluffy – it comes with the territory.

Our little E is the girliest little girly I’ve ever known, she’s a total Princess and loves to dress up as so. Whilst on an Asda run to collect sweets for the cinema E spotted this rather cute and fluffy unicorn headband and I knew instantly that it would be coming home with us or rather it’d be glued to E’s head for the foreseeable.

As predicted, E has spent the past twenty-four hours dressed as a Unicorn and such a beautiful little unicorn she is!…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – A Hen Weekend At The Woolpack

Having just and so arrived home from a hen weekend in Leeds, I’m a little weary to say the least. This weeks Ordinary Moments post will therefore be a little shorter than usual as my PJs and pillows are calling me.

Whilst I once watched a variety of soaps, I tend to stick to just the two these days – Duffers (aka Eastenders) and Home & Away. I’ve only ever caught the odd second or two of Emmerdale thus I felt a little bewildered by this weekends trip to the Emmerdale Experience. Still, I (and the rest of the hens) had plenty of fun looking around the different sets and pulling pints behind the bar for what was once the set for the Woolpack.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Happy Double Digit Eve To Our Little Man

As our beautiful boy is about to turn the grand age of ten, we have spent almost the entire weekend celebrating. We’ve obviously partied a little too hard as the kids are both worn out: E came down with some sort of sickness bug last night and J barely has a voice left thus they are both in bed early tonight.

This time ten years ago I was busy sucking on gas and air whilst begging for a c section, I can barely believe it’s been a decade since our little man made an arrival into this World. TEN YEARS! Where on earth has that time gone?!…
