START OF A NEW ADVENTURE

September 13, 2020

This week my first born ventured into the next chapter, senior school. It came with a whole load of emotions not only from her, but me too. The start of her senior school journey has not been without its problems. We didn’t get our first choice school which caused a lot of upset and stress. The school we did eventually get was one we were both really happy about. It’s a brand new school and she and the rest of…

HELLO SEPTEMBER

September 1, 2020

Wow, 8 months in. I realised yesterday that the last monthly post was actually June. Lockdown has well and truly hit the blog hard. It’s been hard to motivate myself to write. The past few months were filled with homeschooling and working from home. It left me a little frazzled if I’m honest.  We are now back to some kind of norm. The school holidays have been quite the life saver. The chance to relax and take stock of everything.…

LOCKDOWN LIFE – SIX WEEKS IN

May 4, 2020

I didn’t think I would ever write a blog post sharing my experiences with being in lockdown. It really is a strange time and one we have all had to adjust to pretty quickly. We are now heading into week seven, and although I find it quite astonishing we are at that stage already, the last six weeks have been tough. At the start of lockdown, I was still heading out weekly to do the shopping. Every Saturday for the…

LIFE LATELY | COPING WITH LIFE IN LOCKDOWN

April 9, 2020

WOW, it’s been a while! So long, I feel like I have forgotten just exactly how to blog. Every time I open the laptop to write, I promptly shut it again and think, maybe tomorrow. The past few weeks have been hard, it has been a huge adjustment to daily life. I have struggled with the lockdown process, but think I have found a happy medium. We have sacrificed so much over the past few weeks. Some things were not…

ROUTINE | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

January 12, 2020

This weekend has consisted of spending some much needed time at home. We have settled back into the school and work routine. The first week back is always a shock to the system. Early bedtimes, homework, school clubs and the feeling of constantly being on the go. This week we have also had play dates thrown in and a birthday party! Its been a pretty long week! I am lucky that in the holidays I reduce my hours at work,…

THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 2020

January 5, 2020

It’s now hosted by Donna, over at What the Redhead Said. The Ordinary Moments is a weekly feature where you share all the ordinary parts of your lives. It can be anything from documenting the children’s milestones, days out, holidays and so much more…

HELLO JANUARY

January 1, 2020

As part of my 2020 goals, I am kicking off with a new monthly post. I really like writing these, because it reminds me of some of the things I can expect coming up in the month ahead. January is a quiet month for us. The lull after Christmas gets everyone and makes us all a bit gloomy. There are a few things coming up this month, that I can look forward too. A new Job Well, technically it’s the…

MY PLANS FOR 2020

January 1, 2020

I am not a fan New Years resolutions.I never ever stick to them and I always fail before I have even started. I think it’s important too set goals, rather than resolutions. This year I am setting just a few goals. There is a bit of a theme running through them, so hopefully they all tie in together and they are goals I can achieve. More Blog Writing Last year, my blog took a huge battering and this year I…

THE NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN TRANSFORM YOUR HOME

November 28, 2019

Homes that you can control with your voice, and that recognise you when you walk through the door, were once a distant dream.

Homeowners are bringing the latest technology into their home, turning those dreams to reality. Here are just a few new technologies that can completely transform your home: 1.
