Me and Mine {November 2017}

A few days late for our Me and Mine post for November, and for good reason – the hubster and J’s birthdays. I think this should be the last time I mention it, but every birthday is such a big milestone and so bittersweet that I can’t help but not focus on them

A Month of Adventures {September 2017} {Blogtober #4}

We’ve now completed three quarters of 2017 and into my favourite season. It seems that everyone loves autumn too and I totally understand why although I am unsure how we’ve managed to complete 3 quarters of 2017 already

A School Uniform {Living Arrows 11/9/17}

This week’s Living Arrows post could only be about J and her week of starting school. 2 days in and she is brimming with excitement and my goodness that girl already has a zest for learning. All weekend she has made us do her phonics and count to and from 20

We spent Friday night going through it all and she keeps running to and from the hall with her book bag, although she was still a little upset that she didn’t actually get a book for her book bag – hopefully this week. There’s not much that makes me prouder than this girl, and I’m so relieved the first few days went without a hitch.

This weekend I arranged for J and I to go for a walk with my cousin and her daughter to some woods nearby, something we try and do every couple of months in amongst our busy lives

Cooks Cabin the Beginning – Part 1

How we met and the early days

I was chatting to the hubster a couple of days ago and realised this summer we will have been together for 7 years, that has flown by! I wanted to record our first moments as a couple and the story behind Cooks Cabin

In May 2008 one of my friends was concerned she would never meet ‘Mr. Right’ as she was about to hit an age milestone, so we decided it would be fun to go Speed Dating. I went with the intention of meeting a couple of new people but not necessarily a long term relationship and certainly not marriage! I was about to turn 23 and was living the first year of single life since my late teens and had recently moved back home following a bad break up
