Living in the Present

Whilst Stumbling the other day, I came across this quote.. I’m sure I’m not the first person to reflect that he is indeed a wise man! These are easy traps to fall into in today’s world. Before Boo’s arrival, I was all about my work. I was good at it, …

We Went Out!

The husband and I don’t have much time together, just the two of us, out and about. We do enjoy lounging about together most evenings at home, so we do have that, but to actually go out, into the world, without children? Well, that’s rare. I can literally count on …

The A-Z of Me

I’ve been tagged in an A to Z of me meme, by the lovely Jaime over at Olivers Madhouse – you can find out more about her A-Z here. So here’s a little about me then.. A – Animals of Farthing Wood. My favourite book from my childhood, and I’m …

Boo is Back

Last week my gorgeous girl was not herself. An evil sick bug took hold of her, and she barely moved for two days, couldn’t keep any food or drink down, and so by the second day, didn’t really speak either as she was so tired and without energy. You can …

The Juggle of Modern Motherhood

I’m excited to be taking part in a blog carnival over at MumNetwork today, and am sharing my thoughts with you on The Juggle of Modern Motherhood… Motherhood today looks so different to so many people. Some mum’s work full time, some part time, some work from home, some are …

My Guilty Pleasures

It seems I’ve accidentally committed to sharing these, after a thoughtless remark on Twitter. I mentioned I’d just had the idea to write a blog post confessing a few guilty pleasures, and a fair few people liked the concept! It’s the type of thing that’s just begging to be made …

Choosing A School

Boo is now 4, so I have just embarked upon the exciting journey of choosing a primary school for her. And I think it needs to be exciting, as this is a huge milestone. Now, I say I’ve just embarked, which means I’ve been to the school I was very …

To Move or Not To Move?

I get restless. I get restless and feel the need for changes. I daydream sometimes about living elsewhere. Always near the sea. I’d love to be able to just jump in the car and pop to the beach with the kids. And I’d imagine I’d have a home like this …

So Happy Together

My children are growing, as children have a habit of doing..! And as they’re growing up, I see them growing closer together. These are photos taken in the past week.. They play together now. We’ve been fortunate that Boo welcomed and adored Little Man from the first day she met …

If I Could Have Just One Room…

If you could have just one room, all to yourself, what would be in it? What colours would you choose? What would it smell like? I’m daydreaming a little. This is my, ‘when we win the lottery…’ room. And so what would it be like? I make no secret of …

#BornToRead

I joined in a Twitter chat last week, in partnership with Save the Children and their Born to Read campaign. It shocked me. It upset me. It stayed with me. I learned that ‘A fifth of 7-year-olds from poorer families are already behind in reading. Most struggle to catch up, …
