A Sign Of Things To Come

What’s that saying? You have a son until he finds a wife, have a daughter and you have her for life! Today I had a glimpse of things to come and I’m really hoping the saying proves not to be true. On a sunny bank holiday Monday, after spending the day together we headed to our local for a quick drink before dinner. We weren’t the only ones and there were lots of other kids playing in the beer garden. One little girl in particular caught O’s eye. She goes to his nursery and is quite often in the pub…

The Ordinary Moments – My Girls

Before O came along there were already 2 very special little people in our lives.  We were already parents to our lovely Lhasa Apso’s and as they are both female they become known as “the girls”. Mo, the gorgeous blonde, is getting on a bit.  She’ll be 10 in November and gets tired easily.  You will mostly find her chilling out upstairs in her bed in our room, trying to keep out of O’s way I think. Rox is the opposite, she will be wherever you are, demanding to be sat on your knee.  Or at the front window keeping…

It’s the last week of the Easter hols and its flown by, but I’ve loved every minute of being at home.  Really not looking forward to going back to work next week, but for now let’s focus on the highlights of the past 7 days.

I have got better at trying to get organised the night before but I’m still scrabbling around at quarter to 8 in a panic making sure O has a change of clothes, just in case, and a dummy for nap time, and the latest form nursery have wanted filling in! If we leave the house any later than 7:50 I’ve got about a 10% chance…

Beach Fun & Puddle Jumping

I love being by the sea. There’s something very calming about it, and it always makes the day to day worries and stresses seem a million miles away. Last weekend we took O to spend a few days at the beach in North Wales. The weather was a bit on the ropey side. Lots of wind and rain but on the Sunday late afternoon the sun came out and we headed outside. It was great being by the sea and O loved spotting the birds and the boats and making his footprints in the sand. As it had been raining…
