LITTLE LOVES 2021 | MAY EDITION

May 27, 2021

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! I think I started last months Little Loves off with a WOW, how can we already be mid way through the year! We are heading into our sixth month of the year and I can’t quite believe it. With what’s happened so far it’s surprising how quickly 2021 is passing us by.  May was a month where we started to relax a little. We saw family, which was lovely and…

SNOW DAY

February 7, 2021

We have been waiting weeks for a forecast of snow. We watched other parts of the UK become blanketed in the white stuff and we sort of gave up hope of the South East ever getting any. That was until last week when the weatherman forecast a full 5 days of snow. Because of lockdown, heading out to the shops for a sledge wouldn’t exactly be acceptable and classed as “essential shopping”. I mentioned to James how disappointing it would…

Little Loves 2020 | September Edition

September 25, 2020

Hello and welcome back to a new little loves round-up! I am about 9 hours late to posting this because I actually forgot! I still thought we had at least a week left of September but in fact we have just 5 days which is frightening, because this month has seriously flown by. Its been full of adjustments to new routines and getting used to the new norm. I am also ashamed to say, my photo up keep this month…

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…

GOODBYE JUNIORS

July 17, 2020

Where to start? In September Gracie headed into year six with such excitement. So much to look forward to and so much to gain. And then COVID happened and before we knew it the schooling system had changed dramatically. We as parents were the ones teaching and we had to prepare for them for the inevitable, that their end of year will be hugely different to previous. No production, no residential, no year 6 transition to senior school, no celebration.…

SNIPPETS OF OUR LIFE #1

June 3, 2020

Last year I dabbled into a bit of videography. I really enjoyed it, but the just stopped. I think it fell in line with me loosing my love of blogging and taking an extended break. I watched those videos back that I created and I actually loved looking back on them.  So I have decided to maybe start again and try every month to create a little video of snapshots of our life. I really tried to do that 1…

AND SO IT BEGINS

September 15, 2019

So it begins. It felt like yesterday I was viewing primary schools for Gracie. How an earth has it come to this? This week saw me visit the first of many senior schools. Still can’t quite get my head round the fact I have a child that is old enough for senior school!  To be honest I started looking last September as the school I (read she) wants to go to was doing a huge talk about a new school…

LITTLE LOVES 2019 | AUGUST EDITION

August 30, 2019

It’s the end of the month and Its Fri-yay, which means a Little Loves round up. I cannot quite believe just how quickly this month has gone. We are nearing the end of the summer holidays and I feel quite sad that I just a few short weeks, we will be back to the school routine! I am not quite ready just yet! We have had a lovely August. Weather wise it was hit and miss, a few weeks of…
