Sometimes I look at you and I don’t see you.
I see the dishes left on the kitchen counter instead of being put in the dishwasher.
I see the DIY jobs that you keep telling me you’ll do “at some point”.
I see the piles of laundry, the messy house, the unfinished jobs.… Read more
From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!
A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week.… Read more
Throughout 2016 I will be posting a photo on Instagram each day, sharing something that I am grateful for each day as part of my #366daysofgratitude project. Here are the things I have been grateful for this week:
Day 227 – I am grateful for carousel rides making a shopping trip a little more fun for the girls.… Read more
On Monday morning we got on a train and headed to Land’s End for the start of our challenge to travel the length of the country by train and bus. Two days, 17 hours and 54 minutes after leaving Land’s End, we reached John O’Groats. By Friday morning, we were back home again. It’s certainly been quite an adventure.… Read more
Langley Park is one of our favourite places to visit. It’s somewhere that the girls can always make magic just with a little imagination. Put some funfair rides, face painting and other attractions there for a day though, add that little touch of magic and it’s the perfect recipe for a fun day out.… Read more
Despite being given directions at the hotel to the bus stop we still managed to completely miss it and had to ask someone else. It turned out we’d walked straight past it – how both hubby and I had managed to miss the bus shelter and the big yellow BUS STOP on the road when we’d passed the church (which we had noticed!) is beyond me!… Read more
Parenting Pep Talk is a weekly series of guest posts all about encouraging other parents by sharing some of our happy moments, the advice that has worked for us and some positive words of encouragement.
Today’s post is from Jade who blogs at Raw Childhood and describes herself as follows:
“I am a babywearing, co-sleeping, breastfeeding and future home-schooling mummy to two beautiful boys, Leo and Mylo.… Read more
My hopes of a lie-in were dashed thanks to hubby forgetting to turn his alarm off from the previous day – and Jessica waking up shortly after it went off. At least I got to take advantage of having some decent wifi signal and catch up on social media and blogging before Sophie also woke up!… Read more
I had hoped for a reasonable night’s sleep ahead of getting the 6.28am train from Penzance but I ended up co-sleeping with Sophie whose dreams clearly featured her as a Riverdancing octopus if the amount of fidgeting was anything to go by. Thankfully my sense of adventure overrode my usual morning grumpiness and although it was a bit of a rush to get to the station, at least I wasn’t too zombie-like!… Read more
“We’re going on a ‘venture!” Sophie kept saying as we rushed around getting everything ready to set off towards Land’s End – the starting point for our LEJOG challenge. Unfortunately in the rush, neither hubby nor I noticed that Jessica hadn’t picked up Kerry, her favourite dolly, and it was only when we arrived at the station that we realised she was missing.… Read more
