Splashing at My Heart

I had the biggest of heart wobbles this morning of such exceptional emotions that I felt a touch compelled to knock my bloggers block on the head and write. Then click publish! I’ve written a lot over the past month but never clicked publish, the posts never quite feeling right …

Hello Autumn #HappyDays

This year is going so fast. It’s November this week, the weather is bleak, the sparkly season is hitting the streets and I really don’t know where time is hurtling to. I’m feeling it more so because baby CABS is almost one and I’m not sure how long I can …

Bullet Train – Happy Days

Woah one minute I was writing about heading to Blackpool Zoo the next it was a whole week later and time to start my round up again. Seriously fast, I don’t think I’ve had a week go so fast in such a long time.  Total Bullet Train moment. School term …

Zooming sort of! #abc123challenge

This weeks has been a bit of a blur. Week 2 of the holidays are done!  I surprise myself by saying it’s been a blur.  Every blooming week is a bit of a blur at the moment.  Being a little bit or a lot tired all the time, constantly on …

Yes I Will Play Trains With You #abc123challenge

Week one of the school holidays done, five more to go. The words “Mummy, will you play trains with me?” Are very much engrained into my head leading me to much dread. They don’t really prepare you for the summer holidays with two little kids. They rip away your play …

Xtreme Torture #abc123challenge

Life has got the better of me this week and the blog has not for want of trying taken a back seat. I have half written blogs coming out of my ears. The week X that we are in has failed! Oh well. I’m blaming the torturous sleep I’ve been …

What a Week! #ABC123Challenge

On to week W of the abc123Challenge, I can’t believe we’re on the home stretch and next week is that illusive letter X that everyone thinks about when you start at the letter A! I’ve got a good one! This week has been a bit of a blur really. I …

W is for Playing in the Woods #abc123challenge

Playing in the Woods There is nothing better than the great outdoors and one place, many places, we like to go as a family is in the woods.  We’ve been heading into the woods as a family since the Robot was born and now that he walks it makes a …

Very Happy 3rd Birthday #ABC123Challenge

My little boy turned 3 yesterday.  I can’t believe I own a 3-year-old now.  He’s been really testing my boundaries this week probably because he’s been so so excited about his birthday and his party.  It has been fun watching his excitement but if you saw one of my Instagram …

Umbrellas #abc123challenge

This week has been another one of those blurs where we’ve done so much but done so little! I’ve not really wanted to do anything either hence why this going out on Sunday instead of Saturday. Everything has been last-minute and we have all needed umbrellas to stay cool in …

Sick #abc123challenge

Sick, sick, sick and oh oh the diarrhoea! Yup I can very much justify the use of sick in my title after the wobble last week of using a negative title in a happy post each week. S is for Sick!! We started on Sunday night with the Robot being …

Really Rubbish #abc123challenge

I think that I’ve got into the habit of giving these weekly round ups a negative title, having a mini moan then launching into all the happy bits from the week. Really Rubbish. Are you okay with that? Really I should just have a moan post and a happy post …

Quite Tough #abc123challenge

We’ve been on holiday this week just gone. I demanded to Dave that our first proper camp with the kids needed to be a lot less remote than our usual Scottish trips so we opted for Northumbria. With family and friends nearby I figured it would be better should everything …

Oh dear Oh dear #ABC123Challenge

Oh dear, we’ve been pretty lucky on the sick kid front this Winter. Only a few colds to really contend with. This week however the Robot and probably CABS too have been a little poorly and out of character. I genuinely have had to feel sorry for the Robot and …
