And relax {The Ordinary Moments}

No matter how enjoyable busy weekends are I always find myself craving after a weekend or at least a day where time stands still. Where life as our little family is the focus of all my attention. No interruptions, no knock at the door with unexpected guests (dare I say unwanted) looking for a cup of tea and to disrupt the playroom. No birthday parties to attend, no deadlines to hit. Just us.

Date Night, Family Time & New Shoes #LittleLoves

Wow May 1st. Time really does seem to be passing me by at the minute. No sooner have I welcomed a new month am I waving it goodbye. When I look back at last week I can’t help but remember how lovely Sunday was. Starting with a little cuppa in our garden. Such a lovely day.

Celebrations, Long Days & Time Away #LittleLoves

Welcome to this weeks #LittleLoves post. It has been a week of indifference. Long days as I began a new journey with a new business. A week of celebration as my blog celebrated turning 1 and well, a long week away from my boys.

It goes without saying that I have enjoyed a lazy morning today, with tea and snuggles with Lil G. It really is the little things you miss.

On that note here are my #LittleLoves of the week… Continue reading

Dreaming Of Summer

The change in weather these past two days has left me dreaming of summer. Dreaming of long lazy days. Relaxing. Packing a picnic. Mint choc chip ice creams. The smell of sunscreen. The glisten of sun bouncing off the water. Deck chairs. Sandals. Painted toe nails and of course the need for sunglasses.

I will admit to loving all seasons. I wouldn’t say that I love the Winter as much as Spring and Summer but it’s pretty close. I love seeing my wardrobe change for each season. However you simply cannot question how a blue sky and glorious sunshine lifts your mood. It really is a mood changer. It’s rather magical don’t you think? Continue reading

Me-Time, Our Time, Family Time : Little Loves

The days are long at the minute, and despite the lighter mornings and evenings I still long for time as Our Little Family. For my work from home days where I am able to walk Lil G to Kindergarten and back again. When I don’t need to rush off to catch a train leaving my baby snuggled under our quilt with his Daddy. For those brief minutes where we have the opportunity to connect, to hold hands, to be mummy and son. My two days working from home allow me to be the best version of being a full-time working mummy can be. It’s a difficult balance some days but on these two days I have it just right.

So let’s take a look at the little things we have loved this week… Continue reading

The Difference A Day Makes

I won’t lie to you. Yesterday I was at breaking point. This morning I was broken. I may have wept.

Tired from a week of Lil G waking at 5am. Tired from a long week at work. Tired from feeling guilty.

I could feel myself falling into a deep dark place, so I did something about it.

I signed up to Caveman Training. Or should I say Cavewoman Training. Sweating it out, smashing a ball to the ground. Pushing out those demons. I couldn’t resist after reading on the Cave website that…

The caveman classes are modified “strong man” workouts which push you mentally and physically leaving you feeling empowered and strong

That ought to do it. Some endorphins’ to brighten my mood. It hurt. It felt good. It’s hurting A LOT more right now. It didn’t work.

So, when exercise is not working, what is left? You got it. That would be… Fizz. It’s Friday night after all.

And then came Saturday morning, another early start, waking with a headache for the 5th day, and not because of the fizz! A toddler, who by 8am wanted to be in the garden, with every toy, to him he was in heaven, me I was in hell.

And then it hit me. I needed to immerse myself in family, in time with Lil G, just me and him. Oh and Mr H.

I did just that and hey presto, like magic balance was restored.

Oh Happy Day

Hallelujah
