FRIDAY NIGHT ROUTINE | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

March 1, 2020

I look forward to Fridays. Its the last working day and it marks the beginning of the weekend. Friday nights also consist of swimming and curry. Definitely my favourite night of the week. Henry was never ever a fan of Friday night. Last year, it was such a struggle to get him to swimming. He would wake in the morning and make an excuse as to why he couldn’t go. This year, he has been completely different. He has thrown…

HOSPITAL VISTS | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

February 16, 2020

The past 5 years I’ve had a pretty ordinary moment happen every few months. It’s become part of my life and one I was hoping was going to come to an end. This week was a week I’d been longing for for 5 whole years. It was supposed to be discharge week from the hospital. It didn’t happen. It’s typical, I’ve waited five years and then six weeks before I’m discharged I notice something and that something is being looked…

HELLO FEBRUARY

9 days late, but I feel like I needed to continue with it anyway. I promised myself at the beginning of the year I would blog more and be consistent. The past few weeks have been pretty intense and busy, but I am excited to head into February and enjoy what the month has in store Hospital visits This month potentially sees me being discharged from one of my skin cancer clinics. Its been a long 5 years, but hopefully…

TIME OUT | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

February 9, 2020

I managed four consecutive weeks of The Ordinary Moments before taking a time out. Last week was busy, was pretty full on and I just needed some time out. It wasn’t just work that got in the way, I mean a full time job, parenting, life and then adding a blog into the mix is hard to juggle sometimes. Life just got in the way. I’ll be honest, parenting tested me last week, and most evenings were consumed in trying…

LITTLE LOVES 2020 | JANUARY EDITION

January 31, 2020

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! The first for 2020! January seems to have been a really slow month. Anyone else feel like its been months since we were all celebrating Christmas? Its been pretty full on for us, back to routine, new jobs, paying off holidays and generally feeling like the month is never going to end! Its taken a bitter turn, with the latter weeks being minus temperatures, which makes for a very fun…

GAMER IN THE HOUSE | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

January 26, 2020

I am pretty relaxed when it comes to screen time. I limit it during the week, but if we are not doing anything of a weekend, I don’t tend to limit it. Some may agree, some may disagree. Its a very ordinary moment in our house for Henry to either be on his X-Box, his Nintendo Switch or on his tablet. Henry has shown interest in gaming for quite a few years. I was surprised at how quickly he picked…

NEW OPPERTUNITIES | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

January 19, 2020

This isn’t exactly an ordinary moment, but something that has pretty much stood out for me as a highlight this week. At the beginning of the year I mentioned on my blog that Was stepping into a new role at work. One I was really excited about. It turns out that, that role wasn’t actually for me. It’s a strange feeling when you think you’ve failed at something. What I didn’t realise was a better opportunity was about to be…

RECENT FAVOURITES

January 18, 2020

A few years ago, Monthly Favourites videos and blog posts were one of my favourite things to watch and read. Maybe I am just a bit nosy but I really like to see what people have been enjoying. I thought (well I tried last year and didn’t live up to it) I would try a do a round up either every month or every other month of all the things I am loving, enjoying at the moment. So without too…

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,…
