Moving On

This week has had a lot of different moments and memories that when it came to write this post I didn’t know where to start. Earlier in the week J had a settling in session at her new school. She’s been looking forward to it ever since we told her and on the day itself she kept asking me when we would be making the session and kept clock watching to make sure she wasn’t late for it

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’

Impromptu Visits to the Beach

The weather this week has been glorious and after finishing work on Friday I felt we had to do something with our evening to make the most of it. When the hubster came home we hatched a plan to visit one of the beaches that we hadn’t been to for such a long time and stop at a pub for a drink in the beer garden

Where did the Time go? {Living Arrows 12/6/17}

This week we had a parents introduction evening at J’s school. It wasn’t really real until then if I’m to be honest. She’s my one and only baby and we love our routine and the next few months will see her move from her current nursery to school and us become school run parents, which I’m just not sure if I’m ready for. J on the other hand definitely is – she’s on daily countdown and is looking forward to wearing the coloured jumper she wants, and is excited to meet her new teacher soon

Strawberry Fields {Ordinary Moments 11/6/17}

Every year since J was little we’ve visited the Pick Your Own fields.Β In fact looking back at this post from 2015 I honestly cannot believe how much she’s grown! I’ve always been an advocate for PYO and showing J where food actually comes from, rather than the supermarket and she loves picking it and eating it as fast as humanly possible – most time’s it’s gone before we get home

Cheeky Face {Living Arrows 4/6/17}

This week we’ve relaxed, we’ve spent quality time at home as a family, having had our good friend stay with us last weekend and it’s been much needed. After a busy few months with things planned pretty much every weekend planned we’ve got a relatively calm June and that works for us as July is jam packed

Simple Days at The Park

Quite often we focus on the big events, the special outings or the places away from home when actually staying close to home is one of the best things to do. After a week or so of feeling rotten I decided to make the best use of the precious sunny Wednesday J and I had together and we went to the park

Me and Mine {May 2017}

Although we didn’t do a lot in May compared to April we had lots of adventures close to home, we travelled on foot a lot and it was beautiful weather for most of it. We started it off in Cheshire with our good friend RH and she ended it with us in Hamphire. I also went away with the girls to Center Parcs and started a new food plan to hopefully rid me of the problems that have plagued me for so long
