Our Christmas – 2018

This post will be short and sweet – Christmas 2018 has probably been my favourite to date.  It’s been slow paced; full of food, laughs and family fun. I have loved it. Life has been so busy this year so the time off work and school has been so precious. I didn’t take many photos this year, I made a real conscious effort to be in the moment with the family, the few I did get I love! We made the most of this mild dry weather and headed for some scoots and bike rides when we weren’t busy with…

Maisy Turns 8

I officially have an 8 year old daughter! That sentence is quite scary to type out loud it makes me feel ever so old.

Last year we went at the completely wrong time and all the strawberries were a rather disappointing shade of green! The girls grabbed their baskets (one each of corse they couldn’t possibly share) and we set about filling…

Getting Outside With Little Tikes!

It’ll come as no surprise to you for me to say the girls and I love getting outside. If you have followed this blog for a long time you will have followed a lot of our outdoorsy adventures but one thing I am really slacking in is outdoor play at home. Since going back to work I have realised what a blessing the back garden can be, it gives the girls the chance for some fresh air after a long day at school an it also gives me chance to get some chores done without them being under my feet.…
