The Ordinary Moments – A Quiet Night In

For us this is a bit of a retro ordinary moment. Just over 4 years ago we moved into our dream house, in a gorgeous little village, pretty much equidistant between two lovely pubs. One is 1 min 13 seconds walk away (believe me, I’ve timed it!), the other only an additional 30 seconds. In our pre O days we would often pop to one of the pubs for a drink afterwork or a quick one after dinner. With a small child this became a thing of the past. Going out past 6pm is a luxury we’ve only just started…

Love The Little Things #13

We’ve been having a lovely week so far, it really feels like Spring (and the warmer weather) is just around the corner and I can’t wait.  This is what we’ve been enjoying. Read Mostly menus! We have been out twice for dinner in the last week and even managed a mid week takeaway so I have mostly been reading menus.  Not good for the figure (especially with hols in 9 weeks), but it has been gorgeous food. Watched I’ve been watching The Widower on ITV on Monday night for the past 2 weeks and I’ve been hooked by it.  Really looking…

Dear Parents, Pease Support Us!

Dear Parents/Guardians, On Wednesday morning I know there will be disruption to your normal routine. Your childs school may be closed. Or you may have one child in, whilst the others has the day off.

How teachers are just being a nuisance, whinging on again about their bloody pensions! I’ve seen the comments on my Facebook feed, us teachers are a selfish lot! Before you jump on the teacher bashing bandwagon, please take a step…

The Ordinary Moments – Mummys Little Helper

My little man is a real people pleaser, and as a result he loves to help out.  At the end of our Rugbytots class he’s the one helping the coach put the balls away and won’t leave until they are all back in the bag. He’s just the same at home, he wants to help with everything.  One of his favourite things is putting things in the bin. I’ve no idea why, but he loves it. Giving him a piece of rubbish is like giving him a treat!

Love The Little Things #12

This week has been a bit crazy.  With 3 members of my department off sick at work, just as we are about to embark on exam season, it’s a bit manic to say the least! Read In the spirit of trying to read a bit more, with the Easter hols coming up I may actually manage it, I have treated myself to a new book.  50p from the charity book stall, I do love a bargain.  I’ve read a few Jane Green books before and really like them so looking forward to getting stuck into this one.  Not quite a…
