For some very strange reason, that I’m nowhere near technical enough to understand, some people can’t see the linky showing up on this week’s post, so I am posting the whole thing again here, in the hope that it may work…? Thank you again to those of you joining in …

A Family Portrait – January 2014

I’ve decided to get a photo of the whole family together here every month, as we rarely take photos like this, and I think it’ll be nice to have. So here we are in January… I love how suspicious, even a little disdainful, Little Man looks! This was a selfie …

I Used To Be Selfish..

I used to be selfish. I think you can afford to be when you’re in your twenties, climbing a corporate ladder and happily married. You can do as you please, with a good amount of disposable income, lots of fun to look forward to, holidays to enjoy, and relaxation time …

Penguin in Love – Review

It’s always a good post day when we receive a book! The children are always excited, and I’d have to say I was just as excited about this one, as I am a big penguin fan, so I just knew that I’d love it… Penguin in Love by Salina Yoon …

Reading’s Read – January 2014

Another month, another load of books read here. These have been our favourite’s this month.. Little Man – Bizzy Bear: Pirate Adventure by Benji Davies We bought him this for Christmas, and he LOVES it! We’ve since bought him Bizzy Bear: Fun on the Farm, too – equally as popular. …

My Photos – Week 2: My Garden

OK, so second lesson time! I’ve taken on my beginner’s tips, chosen my project of photographing my garden through the seasons, and this week I’ve been thinking about perspective. So here it is, my garden, my perspectives… I took a few photos of the same thing but from differing perspectives …

Boo & Little Man Create – January

When I saw that KidGLloves had started a Mini Creations linky, I knew I’d want to join in. Boo is very creative, and is often drawing, building and making, and at just 16 months-old, Little Man adores scribbling away, too, so I thought it would be nice to do a …

Smile #SpreadALittleHappiness

Today, I want to start the day with a smile, and it’d be lovely to have you doing the same. And so I’ll share a favourite photo from my ‘makes me smile’ pinboard…. A song that always has us smiling… Remind myself of the things that I’m grateful for and …

Little Man’s Playtime

My children get on very well together, which is lovely to see, and a relief for me! They’ll happily play together, or alongside each other, comfortable in each other’s company. It means that I can let the pair of them get on with it, and create their own mayhem and …

Operation Makeover

This year, I’ve challenged myself to make over most rooms in the house, as well as the ongoing¬†Project Garden. I’m in our house a lot. I’m here with the kids, I have friends and play-dates over and I work from home. These walls can begin to get dull! So I …
