Starting Again.

Starting Again.

After the hardest few years of my life, I want to start putting pen to paper, well fingers to keyboard, and to start blogging again. I used to think I was a little bit humorous, sometimes even modestly tittering at my own musings, but I’m struggling to find that spark again. Life is crazy. Kids, … Continue reading

New Term = FREEDOM!

New Term = FREEDOM!

September is most definitely my favourite time of year. I love the holidays and I love the sunshine, but even more, I love a fresh start, a new term, and a quiet house! My social media feeds are full of a mix of weeping mothers, missing their kids, having spent the holidays together, creating memories. … Continue reading

Whilst most families are heading away on their summer holidays about now, the K-D’s are still reminiscing about theirs. We went to Kos at the beginning of July, just before the schools finished. And just before it got silly hot. Kos is familiar to both of us. The OH lived and worked there for a … Continue reading

Holiday, Celebrate

The K-D’s have safely returned from their latest adventure. Grandad came along for this one too. This chapter took place on the Isle of Wight. Nothing too glam for us, but the weather was amazing. A break from the norm was actually very needed and some time with the OH and Dexter was the perfect tonic. … Continue reading

Travelling Light

I was packing up the car the other day when my neighbour stopped to chat to me.“Going anywhere nice?” he asked, noticing the 5 bags I was placing in the car. “Erm, nope just to my parents for the night” I replied……. Packing light doesn’t seem to be an option in our house anymore. For a … Continue reading
