DAILY WALKS | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

April 19, 2020

Never in a million years would I have ever thought that we would be locked down in our own homes. It’s so strange not waking up and just making a spur of the moment decision to just go out for the day, because we can’t. To not have the routine of doing the school run or going to work is just peculiar. Our lives have changed dramatically over the past few weeks and trying to find the normal is hard.…

CLAP FOR CARERS | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

April 12, 2020

Every Thursday for the past few weeks the UK has stood at their front doors and clapped. They have clapped so loudly and with such admiration for the UK’s National Health Service and frontline staff, it brings tears to my eyes every single time. It feels me with so much emotion and makes me so proud we have a service that is helping those that need it the most. We are living in such strange times. The way we have…

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…

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…

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…

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

Many moons ago, when I blogged under a different name I used to link up every week with The Ordinary Moments. I’ve not linked up in so long it has actually changed from one blogger to another. 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…
