Me & Mine – December 2017

Another year has seemingly shot by, I haven’t got round to making a nice collage of all our family photos yet, but we took these photos today, so at least they are what we looked like at the very end of the year! We took these on Sheringham beach at lunch time today, after scoffing pancakes and ice cream, even though it was pretty darn chilly! We’re now tucked up on the sofa in the living room at Granny’s house watching a film (well, Sam is napping and Arlo is watching youtube videos but Athena and I are watching!) We’ll be heading home tomorrow after a low key NYE, though we do have some fireworks to set off in the garden!   This month has been full off illness, travels…

Me & Mine – November 2017

Our family photos were taken a couple of weeks ago after a very muddy walk around Swanbourne Lake in Arundel. As you can see there were more than a few muddy knees but we all had fun! This month has shot past, and the countdown to Christmas is really on I guess! This month I have been to London three times, twice for blogging/vlogging conferences and once with the whole family for Winter Wonderland. We also had a lovely day out last weekend at Marwell for their Christmas at Marwell experience, which we all loved! It’s definitely safe to say that we’re starting to feel a bit festive! I’ve had tonsillitis for the past few days, I felt like death warmed up on Sunday and Monday but managed to get…

Me & Mine – October 2017

We took our Me and Mine family photos this year at Drusillas, which is where our July photo last year was taken too, and we’ve changed a little! Sam has a bigger beard, both the kids are taller and Arlo looks like a little boy instead of a toddler! Hello Kitty hasn’t changed a bit though…! October was a good month for us mostly… I had a lovely break from normality in Israel (Here’s a bit about my trip to Tel Aviv, I’ll try and get a post about the Dead Sea up at some point!) and also managed to hit my target of reading 40 books this year two months early! I did quite a lot of de-cluttering at home and still have a lot left to do till…

Me & Mine – September 2017

Still on a roll with the outdoors photos! These are pictures my friend snapped for us at a Wedding last weekend, on my phone camera, would you believe? Blimming loving the Samsung s8! Anyway, it was the best day as the wedding was just so chilled out, no strict schedule to adhere to, oodles of photos to pose for, plus great music and in a lovely location surrounded by gorgeous countryside! We all had a great time as the kids ran free and we could chat to friends, and hopefully we look as happy as we were in the photos! It was also pretty sunny, hence the squinting going on!  Anyway, this month has been quite a change for us now that Athena is at school she doesn’t get to…

Me & Mine – August 2017

August was a lovely month for us, mostly anyway! It would have been even lovelier had Sam not been working quite as much but that’s life I guess. We had two little breaks away in Oxford & Brighton and many trips to the beach! Both the kids have suddenly become very attached to their Daddy, and every time I asked them not to do something they whinged for him. Every time he left the house to go to work they both had to have numerous ‘huggles’ and competed to be the last one to hug him. Of course when he’s about Arlo isn’t that fussed by him and prefers me when he hurts himself or wants something… fickle creatures these kids! Our photos this month were taken at the beach…

Me & Mine – July 2017

Our family photos were taken right back at the start of the month at Legoland, at the end of a long day but we’re mostly still smiling so that’s a bonus! We’ve managed to keep the outdoors theme running for seven months now! This month we’ve not seen much of Sam really as he’s been working pretty much all ‘late’ shifts at work, leaving home just after lunch and getting back around midnight or later. So on the days when Athena was at school and Arlo at the childminders they were pretty much like ships in the night!

Me & Mine – June 2017

June was a lovely month, warm, mostly sunny and I had two little breaks too! One with family (we went camping to Rye) and then I had a lovely break with some wonderful blogging ladies to Riverside Cottage in Hampshire, but that was on my own, two blissful child free days! Our photos were taken on our camping trip in the middle of the month, and although these photos are by no means perfect I really love them because they just show us we were- barefoot, happy and squinting in the sun! This month I have been reading so much more, hiding from the realities of everyday life so be honest! I’ve also been trying to eat more healthily too recently, although I’ve not been that good at it, to…
