#TheOrdinaryMoments – House Trap

I don’t know about you but after twenty-something weeks of living in lockdown, it’s beginning to feel much-like Groundhog day. Each morning we seem to wake a little later than we should, the kids have a bit of tech time whilst I clean and tidy around the house, and soon enough it’s dinner time and half the day has gone by. We spend our afternoons baking, drawing, colouring, crafting, or playing board games together before the kids find fun out in the garden or in their bedrooms by playing with various toys and games whilst Paul and I catch up… View Post

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Comet Hunting

Being a bit of a space-buff, I was rather excited at the concept of seeing a comet in the sky. I clearly remember seeing the bright and beautiful Hale-Bopp comet streaking across the sky back in the late nineties, it was spectacular! Having heard that Comet Neowise is apparently closer and bigger than the comets that we’ve seen during our lifetime, I was expecting a grand display in the sky, perhaps it would be even bigger and better than Hale-Bopp… or not. With clear skies and perfect weather for stargazing, we drove half an hour away from home (to get… View Post

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Cut Back To Normality

With the current lockdown easing, we have started to see a glimmer of ‘normality’. Though I’m still incredibly cautious given that the Covid 19 pandemic is still far from over, this week saw the boys have their first hair cut since February and what a difference it has made! Though Paul wasn’t keen on the idea of having his hair cut as he felt he didn’t really need a cut as he’d been styling and shaving his own hair for the past however many weeks, he too admitted just how good it felt to have his hair cut and it… View Post

#TheOrdinaryMoments – The Switch Share

When the going gets tough, the tough get …gaming? At least that’s the excuse that I’m choosing to use for my recent online-shopping splurge! This time last year my son had saved his pennies up and was desperate for the summer holidays to arrive so that we would finally allow him to splash out on a brand new Nintendo Switch. Since his purchase, I can honestly say that it has been one of the most well-used consoles that I have ever seen in this household. I can actually say hand on heart that the Switch has been more than worth… View Post

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Crafty Kids

Our little lady is so crafty¬†and not just in the arty way. She loves nothing more than having a project to work upon, especially so if it results in creating something which she can use or display. During the early days of lockdown, E became really interested in using Hama beads to create various shapes and animals, which we then ironed and she hung in her window. E has since made a variety of rainbows which she has given to grandparents and family as gifts and this week she made her very own rainbow coaster! Whilst E has been a… View Post
