Returning To The Routine

The holidays are about to come to an end and although we’ve had a fortnight off from school and work, it feels like far longer. The kids and I are now more than ready to return into some kind of routine and I’m quite looking forward to starting a new term.

I’m well aware that we are still in the midst of winter and  its flipping freezing for a further two months, but the title ‘spring term’ seems to offer a little light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas has been and gone, the decorations are now down and I’m therefore done with the dark nights and the winter weather!…

#MySundaySnapshot – Sun & Moon 1/52 (2019)

Welcome to the first post of the #MySundaySnapshot blog series, a brand new blog-linky which you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

My husband and I took a trip to Ikea earlier in the week, whilst on our way we got caught up in traffic which left us at a standstill for quite some time. I didn’t mind being stuck in the slightest as we were surrounded with the most stunning scenery, including this stunning skyline in which both the sun and the moon were visible.…

#MySundayPhoto – Cloud Cover

Whilst on the drive back from our mad dash out to town, Paul and I couldn’t help but to notice the beautiful cloud formations which seemed to be blanketing the combe. It looked as if winter had rolled in and the hillsides were snuggling under a duvet of thick, fluffy cloud cover for warmth.

Do you ever take the time to look at the clouds and to make shapes or patterns from them? I could spend hours looking up into the sky making out all kinds of shapes, animals, patterns all kinds of fluffy wonders.

It sure is chilly out and I’m sure that it wont be too long before the clouds are replaced by snow.…

Party Central

Talk about treacherous, the weather last night went from bad to worse. I was half expecting to wake to a garden without a greenhouse. Thankfully the trampoline held on tight and whilst the deck chairs had flown across the lawn, the damage was minimal. Paul very kindly put things back into their rightful place then we proceeded with our day.

I began by taking E along to her friends birthday party, I was therefore required to sit and make polite parental conversation for two hours whilst covertly sniping snacks to keep my hunger at bay.

Whilst some parents are happy to leave their little ones, I’m still a little on the apprehensive side when it comes to E.…

#MySundayPhoto – Autumn at Hand

Half term has come to a close and whilst we haven’t done an awful lot, I’ve really enjoyed being at home and having a break.

It’s all systems go tomorrow as the routine returns and we head into the second half of the autumn term. Come mid-week it’s Halloween and although we are yet to carve our pumpkins, we’ve already decorated the house, planned our costumes, picked up uggins of sweets (or ‘candy’ should you be reading this from America) and are ready to rock and roll what will hopefully be a wicked Wednesday.

It feels incredibly cold compared to this time last year and according to the news some parts of the UK have already had snowfall!…
