Me and Mine {July 2017}

Okay so it’s been just over a month since my last Me and Mine post and July came and went in a flash. It wasn’t one without adventure – in fact we had the most adventure we’ve had all year and that’s why this post is late – but I’m definitely looking forward to a rest in August

A Princess for a Day {Living Arrows – 17/7/17}

We are into our second week of our holiday in Florida and it has been amazing. We’ve had the perfect blend of days at the park, pool fun and water park days, with the odd character meal thrown in

On Saturday we started the day with a princess breakfast at Epcot, J was so excited and kept wanting them to come over to have her photo taken with them and a cuddle as we are a lovely breakfast and learned a bit about Norway from our host

We then met up with my family at Magic Kingdom and the big event that had been planned by my mum and dad – a visit to Bibbidy Bobbity Boutique for a princess experience

We weren’t sure how it would go as she was a little tired but she enjoyed every second of her transformation and princess treatment from her fairy godmother in training and enjoyed every second. I could talk for ages about the day and how it will be etched in my mind forever, but that’s for another post. Today it’s about my little Belle for the day

Heroes {Living Arrows 10/7/17}

We are currently on a family holiday in Florida, it’s J’s second visit and my sixth. We love everything about Disney and on our first day we visited Magic Kingdom (you can’t not!) and straight away J and I spotted Chip n Dale. She knows they’re my favourite and we ran over to them squealing with excitement

This time round she’s much more understanding, it’s familiar this time around and she is buzzing. I love that this opportunity has been given to her and that she’s excited every day. 

Party Hats and Party Poppers {Living Arrows 3/7/17}

This little girl  simply made my birthday last week. Watching her getting so excited in the run up to it, constantly reminding herself (and me) that it was a surprise and anything else to do with it was just adorable to watch. Early on in the week she asked what we would be doing for it and when i simply said “I don’t know, it’s up to your daddy” she decided there and then that a teddy bear picnic would be the best way to celebrate it

A Month of Adventures {June 2017}

June is such a short month but with lots of birthdays and celebrations it always passes by  in a blur but I feel like it was exceptionally fast this year – did we even have a June? We made a conscious decision to stay close to home as July is full of adventures far away in   tents and villas but I’m not complaining as it’s much needed

Me and Mine {June 2017}

The 30th of June marks my 32nd birthday so I guess I start by saying happy birthday to me. I don’t really like turning another year older, and the more time goes by the quicker it seems to be going. Today I’ve worked on my birthday for the first time in years, but it’s not all bad as it’s only half a day and then I’m off for an adventure

When are we going to stop with the Mum Guilt?

This week I was sat with some mums whilst J and the other kids were doing their thing and the conversation turned to the fast approaching start of school. Naturally we discussed all of the prep we’re having to do and the settling in days that the kids are going through at the moment

Nursery and pre-school graduation inevitably came to the forefront of this conversation and I advised the group it was the day before we go on holiday for 2 weeks, the session is 1:30-4pm and neither my husband or I were likely to make it. I was met with gasps of shock and surprise and they were horrified that I’d miss it (hubby wasn’t mentioned – as it was apparently acceptable for him to be at work)

A Helping Hand {Living Arrows 25/6/17}

J and the hubster have the most amazing bond, they’re both full of energy and often have lots of laughs as they tickle, giggle and play bundles (she adores jumping on him and yelling bundles – does anyone else remember doing similar from their childhood?)

If we were to do a basic comparison I’m generally the one who helps with learning and he’s the one who helps with activity and skill. She loves nothing more than cuddling up with me on the sofa but she often turns to daddy for a helping hand when she’s unsure of heights or activity. This was taken on the way back to the car on Wednesday night after a trip to the pub. A simple iPhone shot, but one of my two favourite people.

A Few Things I Love About Disney World (Part 1)

Next month sees us travel to Disney World for the second time since having J, and my 6th visit since I was 18. I love everything about it – the atmosphere, the Magic Kingdom and the feeling of being a child again to name but a few (even though I’m a long way away from that age!) Here are just a few reasons why I love it:

Best Friends {Living Arrows 19/6/17}

These two melt me. Whenever we are out they’re as thick as thieves (unless Lexi is rolling in something she shouldn’t or eating something she shouldn’t), and whenever you ask J what she wants to do its ‘take Lexi for a walk’
