It’s been 10 months since Lily started beavers, and honestly I am so pleased she wanted to join! It’s been a fantastic learning experience for her already, and we’re not even a year in yet! Being part of Beavers has allowed Lily to explore and try new activities she probably otherwise wouldn’t have, and it… Continue reading Lily’s First Weekend Away.
I know it’s often said that time goes by quickly and your kids aren’t little for long, but it takes on a whole new meaning when it’s your little ones who are doing the growing up! Yesterday, William turned two years old. It just doesn’t seem possible that 731 days have passed, and yet when… Continue reading My ‘not so little’ boy turned two!
2018, it’s here already. It doesn’t feel like a moment ago we were saying farewell to 2016 and celebrating going into 2017! And yet here we are… I have a lot to be thankful for in 2017, the biggest is welcoming our newest addition Rubeon to the family! We had a bit of a tough… Continue reading 2018
As Christmas gets ever closer, wherever you look there’s Christmas decorations and trees being put up, presents being wrapped (unless you’re like me and completely behind and haven’t even started yet) and festive music being played everywhere you go. The one thing that really drums the countdown to Christmas for me is the annual Christmas… Continue reading Christmas Lights Switch On.
(I know, Lily’s birthday was in October…I’m catching up!) Usually, I’m all prepared for Lily’s birthday party, but this year I was in deep water… Now, had Rubeon come on his due date and not had the complications we encountered, the party would’ve been a breeze! (Likewise if I had thought about it and organised… Continue reading Lily’s 7th Birthday.
Hello November. This isn’t really a post of any relevance, it’s more of a “I’m still here and getting back into the swing of it” kinda post, so please bear with me 🙂 So hello November! You’ve come around far too quickly for my liking, and you’ve also brought the winter weather with you. I’ve… Continue reading Hello November.
I can’t believe it! My little blog is 6 months old already! Thank you to all of you who have been supportive and reading it. As you know I started it as a way to remember various points in our family life, but it’s also becoming a bit of an emotional release for me too.… Continue reading 6 Months into Blogging!
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate and appreciate our dads, whether they’re your dad, step-dad, dad-in-law, or your partner is daddy to your little ones. Whoever they are, this is a day for them! When it comes to raising children, it’s often seen as “the norm” for the mum to… Continue reading Happy Fathers Day!
A new Linky has opened up over at Kate’s blog One Hull of a Mum and I thought it’s just brilliant! It’s a really interesting linky in which we give the kids a camera and let them get snap happy. So today, my #childseyeview photo is one which Lily took a couple of weeks ago of… Continue reading #ChildsEyeView Linky. 1
After a few tears, tummy aches and nerves of starting Beavers, Lily now has the uniform AND got invested last week! As I explained briefly before, being invested into Beavers is basically an initiation ceremony. Everyone stands in a circle, and the Leader calls forward the newcomers to stand in front of them and put… Continue reading Lily was Invested!
