I remember my 8th birthday party as clear as day. I remember the friends that came; our meeting place outside; the weather that day and of course the immense fun we had on all of the rides. Fast forward 30 … Continue reading
We have literally said Goodbye to 2015 and hello to a sparkly, shiny, new year. For some, saying goodbye to a fabulous year is hard and they will have everything crossed that the new year brings just as many smiles, … Continue reading

Hey everyone. You may (hopefully) have missed me recently. I have had a little break from blogging. It’s only been 17 days since I last took out the laptop but for me that seems like months when, on average, I … Continue reading
A recent post of mine about making and remembering childhood memories, was all about taking our children to one of the places that my sister and I enjoyed as a child. Very happy memories. When we went for a walk, … Continue reading

“Isn’t it Father’s Day everyday?” Ethan said! Well, he’s right. Daddy does always seem to be the one who gets the lie in at the weekends, but it was really lovely to get to spoil Daddy properly last Sunday. The … Continue reading
As it’s Father’s Day, I had to share this photo as being one of my absolute favourites.
Daddy and a baby Harley.
Their silhouettes remind me of exactly what they were wearing that day. Harley had a cute fluffy jumper with a hood. He looked like a little bear.
It was taken on Luke’s camera using a long lens as they were much higher up on a hill than me.
It’s one of those photos that makes me all giddy and warm; thankful for everything I have.
Hello to a shiny, new week.
My Mindful Monday is a quote that I have heard many times.
But now that I am home with my children, every day, the words mean even more.
Things that I used to miss dearly: brushing our teeth together, making lunch and eating together, walking to the shops together, playing on the carpet together, watching tv together, a simple cuddle.
The little things, really are big things.
And for my beautiful gran who passed away very recently, she will never know how much I cherish the time I spent with her. The little visits; the hugs; the chocolate biscuits that she fed my children constantly! Holding her hand; her smile…. these were the littlest things that are the biggest things to me.
The littlest things, really do mean the most.
