Me & Mine – May 2017

  Gosh this month has been so hard, the first week was okay – it sped by in holiday preparation – filling suitcases, doing an online food shop and planning our stay at Bluestone (here’s our vlog) and then the actual holiday was wonderful! Sadly though the rest of the month has been a bit shit. Arlo got a bad virus just as we got home from holiday, and spent four days not keeping anything down and generally being really poorly. Though he has stopped being sick (thankfully, he’d have wasted away!) he’s still not himself. I even took him to the GP to find out what was wrong with him; not eating much, not sleeping well, really clingy, angry (a  ngrier than normal!) and just a bit of a nightmare.…

Stuff on a Sunday & Me & Mine April 2017

I’m cheating a bit this week and putting my Me & Mine photos in with my normal ‘Stuff on a Sunday’ post purely because I can’t be bothered to write two separate posts! I spent the week doing a bit of planning for holidays and days away in the Summer, always exciting! I had by penultimate day at the hotel, my last day there is Wednesday coming and then I am FREE! hurrah! I spent Monday reminiscing a bit about work and our old colleagues as he is visiting the UK from Australia where he lives now, but we met at work years ago! We went to the Sealife Centre with the kids and then strolled to the end of the Pier and back (it as a soft play centre…

Me & Mine – March 2017

 March was a funny month, it feels very bitty and also seems to have stretched out longer than an average month! Sam had a snowboard holiday in Austria for a week, so I had a week of looking after the two little angels (haha!) on my own. We had some lovely days out whilst Sam was away, including a trip to see lambs being born, a couple of seaside strolls. I then got ill as soon as Sam got home and spent the first half of this week being tired, miserable, snotty and swollen!

Me & Mine – February 2017

February has been pretty good for us as a family. We spent the last week together up in Norfolk staying with Sam’s mum and it was so nice to be away from the normal daily grind of work/cleaning/cooking/preschool and so on and spend time as a family. We had fun exploring an old abandoned church tower, and searching the graveyard for the oldest gravestones, plus debating whether we could actually get inside the fence, the little hole didn’t put us off but the spiky brambles did! The top photo was taken in Norwich Cathedral Cloisters, and the photo below in Granny B’s garden!

Me & Mine – January 2017

January started off dragging its heels a little, then quickly picked up pace and hurtled towards February at quite a lick. I think it is because we didn’t really get back into a routine till the second week once the kids were back into preschool and the child minders. After that we quickly settled back into things, hibernating when possible with the heating turned up! I celebrated my 33rd birthday on the 24th and spent a couple of days up in London, treating myself to a hotel room and a luxurious bed all to myself with no horrifically early morning child related wake up calls! It was just what I needed! I’ve also been reading a lot more and am ahead of target for my reading challenge this year, I…

Me & Mine – December 2016

  These photos were taken on Christmas Eve, after the excitement of watching the Cbeebies panto (since watched about a trillion times!) and just before we put the milk and carrots out (parent-points to Sam because I wasn’t going to bother!) and the preceded a really lovely Christmas! It was probably similar to many other peoples Christmas so I shan’t bore you but we had a lot of food (We’re still having a lot of food – not much of it good for us either!) and it was nice to spend some quality time together before the potential craziness of January as Sam starts a new job so will be taking longer to get to and from work so won’t be around so much at home.

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 things out in our home, putting deposits down for new carpet and two new windows and they should be sorted before Christmas hopefully. We did a few DIY bits around the house and also did a few major clear outs…
