A Little Lady and Her Love For Her Chickens {The Ordinary Moments #9)

We have chickens, two hens that live at the back of our garden called Lily and Pad! We have had them now for 2 years (well actually not the exact same ones after an unfortunate fox incident one night, poor Silly and Billy). Originally they were an Easter present for E – hence the names – and at the time she really liked them. R though is absolutely fascinated, she undeniably loves them. At just 12 months I would go as far as saying she is a little bit obsessed! Continue reading →

A Love of Music and A First Musical Show {The Ordinary Moments #8}

Little Ladies Big World Musical

Music has always been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, pretty much in any form, playing, dancing, singing, you name it. E has inherited that love, she can hear a song once and know the lyrics, tell what instrument is playing on a track or name the artist just by the tone or sound of their voice. Continue reading →

Sisters – February {Siblings}


I am a little late writing this post. I had grand plans of taking some photo’s and writing over the weekend yet here I sit Monday morning at the computer! The Mr headed off to work at 7.30am as usual after a week off, frost on the ground and leaving a sleeping family behind the locked door. Not before he had made milk and tea for us and got breakfast out and ready though.

Our week has been a mixed one, E had her tonsils and adenoids removed and grommets inserted on Monday and unfortunately that very same day R came down with a sickness bug which has spanned most of the week. The Mr had decided to take the whole week off work to be here for E and honestly I could not have got through this week without him.

Did we choose the right school?


My eldest Little Lady E started school in September. This journey as any parent of a school age child knows started almost a whole year before, when at 3 years old she seemed too little to even contemplate school 5 days a week. Yet as parents we are supposed to be able to choose a school for them, for a person they have not yet become, to start their learning journey. Continue reading →

The BEST Day

Little Ladies The best day

I have had THE best day. I am sat here now rather emotional about my Little Lady having an operation tomorrow. Trying anything and everything to distract myself. She is having a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and grommets, a routine surgery that I am sure happens every day all around the country. She will be in the hands of one of the best ENT surgeons in the country. Yet to me, she is my Little Lady, my baby, even at 5 years old and truth be told. I don’t want her to be in the hands of anyone else. Alas I know she will be better for it and I will certainly be there until she closes her eyes and again as soon as she opens them. I am here for her always. Continue reading →
