#TheOrdinaryMoments – Hama Bead Happiness

Earlier this week my daughter and I sat with the Hama beads and within an hour or two we’d put together this rather bright and beautiful star, which we then ironed to set. The shape, the patterns and the colours were all chosen by E, she has such a keen eye for anything arty, bless her. 

We got a large tub of Hama beads for the kids maybe four or five years ago which has lasted us until now, thus I’ve since ordered further Hama beads (and moulds) which I am sure that the kids will make use of, especially during the current lockdown.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – The Light Seers Tarot

I’m not sure whether I am suffering from a severe case of cabin fever or whether I’m just finding myself all over again. Either way, I’ve recently returned to my roots and have relit my love and devotion for divination.

I’m currently in the process of collecting a number of new tarot and oracle decks, one of which arrived earlier today and I have already fallen head over heels in love with.

Designed by Chris Anne, The Light Seers Tarot is one of the most beautiful decks I have ever come across. Although, saying that, there are still other decks (including Danielle Noel’s ‘Star Child Tarot’) to arrive and to add to my collection. …

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Mother’s Day Pandemics & Predictions

Well, that was officially one of the strangest Mother’s Days I have ever had. Don’t get me wrong, it was enjoyable and as always, I was spoilt rotten by my kids (with a little help from my husband) with cards and presents. However, I rather missed seeing and passing on presents and cards to our own parents, though this is simply not possible at present due to the covid 19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Although I’m quite a happy hermit and am very comfortable when at home, confinement due to coronavirus isn’t ideal. Don’t fret, I’m not ignorant nor stupid thus plan to stick to our solitude by staying inside, staying safe and ensuring that we follow all government guidance given.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – World Book Week

Whilst most kids were excitedly getting themselves costumes and caper to dress themselves up in to celebrate world book week, my kids, on the other hand, were busy ransacking my cupboards for fruit and veg to paint and decorate…

No costumes were required (nor have been required for over two years now) as the kids were instead asked to decorate a piece of fruit or veg as a character from a book.. Actually as a parent it’s quite a relief not to have the stress and cost of costume creation, my kids however thought it was all a load of radish…

Our little lady was far from impressed as she desperately wanted to dress up whereas our son didn’t seem bothered either way given that he’s Mr Mature being in year six and all.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Far From Ordinary

I’m trying my very best to keep everything ‘ordinary’ at present, yet in no way does anything feel ‘normal’ nor ordinary at all.

This girl and her furry friend (pictured below) along with her beautiful brother and my hero-husband are my ‘norm’, though they all far from ordinary and I love them all the more for being so unique.

It’s been such a difficult few weeks not just with one thing but almost everything feels as if it is rapidly falling apart. Thankfully I have Paul and the kids who are pulling me through with all their might and I really don’t know what I’d do without them.…
