October Holidaying at Home

In October we had our second at-home holiday of the year, when we had a week off all together that we’d had booked since the beginning of the year. We had loosely planned when our summer holiday was cancelled back in July to take some time away in October instead but with all the uncertaintyContinue reading “October Holidaying at Home”

Autumn Term & New Beginnings 🍂

The summer holidays have drawn to a close here, and – this year for the first time in five months instead of in six or seven weeks – the schools have started back. This time last year that meant me and my biggest girl we were slipping seamlessly back into all our usual toddler groupsContinue reading “Autumn Term & New Beginnings 🍂”

Holidaying at Home

The last little while has been our summer holiday, with my husband off work for two lovely weeks. We originally had a caravan holiday booked (pre-lockdown!!) for what would have been our first trip away together as a family of four. We had planned to go to Haggerston Castle near Berwick on Tweed for aContinue reading “Holidaying at Home”

Thankful Thursday #2 💛

We’re reaching a time it sometimes seemed would never come and it will be beyond lovely to sit outside with theContinue reading “The Sunshine in Lockdown”

A Highland Adventure with my girl ❤️

I came across this post in my drafts, where it had been since it was written back in February, not having got round to posting it immediately and then with all the last few months’ events it having become pretty much obsolete. Decided today though to give it a post, on a day I’m strugglingContinue reading “A Highland Adventure with my girl ❤️

May Days 🌸

Life is moving at a very swift pace as we’ve somehow made our way through April and arrived into May. Our youngest daughter has just turned 5 weeks old, and so for us these weeks have been centred around settling into life as a family of four. The first couple were undoubtedly a blur, sleepContinue reading “May Days 🌸”

Our new addition to the family ❤️

Just a little update from our corner of the world, where, despite life for most of us generally being suspended in time at the moment, with lockdown continuing on and every day exactly as the one before; our worlds were changed forever earlier this month with the arrival of our new baby daughter. She isContinue reading “Our new addition to the family ❤️”
