A Child Free Trip to Bath

I have driven through Bath many times and every time I have said I wanted to stop and visit it. From the car it always looked majestic and one of those places I knew I would fall in love with. In February the hubster surprised me with a grown up trip to visit this beautiful city without the stresses of a 4yo in a city and my oh my it didn’t disappoint

Pausing {Living Arrows 2017 – 20/3/17}

It’s been a long, hard few days but a successful week as well. I started to prepare my photos for my monthly round up and realised whilst there have been lots of adventures as a household we have barely seen or spent any quality time together. This weekend we decided to change that and reset and pause our hectic schedules as a household

A Working Mum {Ordinary Moments 19/3/17}

I work full time, one evening a week allowing me to spend a day with J, and 4 full ‘normal’ days. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but forgetting the financial requirement mentally I need it. I take my hat off to stay at home parents as I really struggled with the day to day activities of bottles, dummies, nappies and not using my brain I had become so used to before being a mummy

Winchester Cathedral – My Sunday Photo {19/3/17}

This week my colleagues from America and Europe joined us for work and once the working week had wrapped up we took them for a short tour around Winchester before heading for dinner

Dreams {Living Arrows 2017 – 13/3/17}

Over the last few months J’s dreams have become more vivid, some good, some bad. The bad ones wake her up in tears and there’s no real theme to them, just her imagination running wild at night

Because they are so vivid she’s convinced they will happen so after a very early wake up call one morning I promised her we would make a dream catcher, explaining that they wouldn’t stop her dreams – instead they would catch the bad ones and prevent them from becoming real – letting the good ones happen and pass through

A Grown Up Bedroom {Ordinary Moments 12/3/17}

When you get a phone call when you’re 200 miles away asking what colour you want the bedroom painting (completely out of the blue) you tend to panic and wonder what on earth you’ll be coming back to. I’ve been moaning about the upstairs of our house for a long time and the hubster had decided my weekend away with my best friend was one where he would redecorate it and surprise me

A Girl and Her Pancake {Living Arrows 2017 -6/3/17}

The concentration of a little girl who has been given a pancake and a pan (cold) to practice on. After what seemed like an eternity of asking she finally got her wish to help daddy and then do it on her own. Lots of falls, lots of laughs and lots of memories made along the way

Pancakes {Ordinary Moments 5/3/17}

Every year we have pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and every year it’s the hubsters job to prepare, make and flip the pancakes ready for us to eat – historically it was my dad’s job and his dad’s too, so it was only natural for him to take the lead when becoming a father

Me and Mine {February 2017}

Month two and the shortest of the year has been and gone in a flash. We have been outdoors more, enjoying the frost at the beginning of the month and the feeling of spring approaching as the weather has got warmer towards the end of the month

February has been both quiet and busy in equal measure but it’s been so nice to get out and about again, I really have missed exploring this beautiful country and everything it has to offer us
