Me & Mine – November 2016

Our photos this month aren’t anything special to look at, but they are special to us as this photo was taken on our fourth wedding anniversary. Sam had cooked a huge lasagne and we had a nice family dinner, which may seem boring to some but we probably only manage to eat dinner together as a family once or twice a week at best due to shifts etc! November has shot by, it’s normally a month I find that goes really slowly but not this year. We’ve been busy sorting…

Me & Mine – October 2016

October is one of my favourite moths, still not cold enough for proper coats but the air often has that wintry smell. not to mention it’s acceptable to start downing hot chocolates like they’re going out of fashion! Here’s what October was like for us:

Me & Mine – September 2016

This month has been really good for our family, we had a whole week away all together, sleeping in the same hotel room and spending all our time together. It was a really nice holiday (you can have a look at our vlog here) and both Sam and I saw a noticeable difference in the kids without the distraction of all the toys and the TV and the humdrum routine at home. They had our full attention most of the time, unlike at home when we’re at work, doing washing,…

Me & Mine – August 2016

Apparently I forgot all about an August Me & Mine post! I was writing up my yearly review in December and realised there wasn’t one! So this is a picture of me looking grumpy, though I don’t think I was at the time! We were on holiday with friends in the New Forest, but this was at the end of a fairly long walk! At least I had a photo to use!

Stuff on a Sunday 59 – Pizza and Me & Mine

The last time I did a Stuff on a Sunday post was about a month ago I reckon, and for some reason I’ve not had the time to write weekly updates. Well, I know the reason; lack of sleep and addiction to Stranger Things on Netflix. Anyway I thought I’d do a monthly round up post and our Me and Mine for August a few days early this month and kill two blog posts with one stone, as it were! This month has been busy without really achieving anything major if…

Me & Mine – July 2016

July was pretty much as crap as June was for us, I’d sum it up as mediocre with illness and a few lovely days. We had a brilliant day out as a family to Drusillas, and then later that week the kids and I headed up to Guildford to meet Donna and had a blast, even though the temperature was through the roof the kids loved the splash pool and we had a good old chat! We also had another nice afternoon at our local Open Air Museum (we bought…

Me & Mine – June 2016

Basically June can be summed up with two words: Chicken Pox. Athena took it like a champ, loved staying inside being able to watch more TV than normal and having epic naps that were often around four hours! Arlo on the other hand caught it right at the end of the period that it was going to appear in if he had caught it, and he was miserable and clingy and hardly slept at all overnight, though he did go back up to two daytime naps but they were on me…

Me and Mine – May 2016

  May has been a bit of a disjointed month for us for some reason although I can’t put my finger on why, it feels like it has flown by too! We had a really nice weekend Glamping and then a trip to London the weekend before last but both Bank Holiday weekends were nothing to write home about as one or both of us was working through them, and then I got horrific food poisoning this past sunday and spent the day in bed or in the bathroom!

Me & Mine – April 2016

We’ve managed to spend a fair bit of time together this month, between work shifts and other commitments I was quite impressed when I thought back over the month! We also had Sams sister staying with for along weekend, so she took these photos for us, finally an outdoor photo, one of many this year I hope!

Me & Mine – March 2016

A photo of the four of us taken after a nice family meal round the dinner table, something that we never did in our old flat as it was too squished to do it really! Our new house has a nice big dining area so we can have our table pulled right out and the sun comes in through the bay window. We’re going to aim to have a proper dinner there most nights rather than off our knees on the sofa!

Me & Mine February

February has been a funny one for us all, it seems to have dragged too. For some reason the lack of sleep I’m getting has really started to affect my day to day life. I find myself making wrong turns in the car when I know exactly where I should be going, snapping more and forgetting what i’m saying half way through sentences. I was ill for a couple of days at the start of the month, and then obviously passed it on to Arlo was vomiting on and off for…

Me & Mine – January 2015

  This isn’t the first time I’ve joined in with Me & Mine, a photo project to capture a family photo each month, but the last time was way back in May last year. I am determined to keep up with every month of this year though so we can see how much we’ve changed, and I’m also going to use each post as a sort of monthly recap too. As we spent the last week in the Alps I thought a family photo in the snow would be apt but…
