Me and Mine – March 2016


It’s the last day of the month, and time to share photo’s of me and mine. This month has been a long one, not in the sense that it has dragged at all but that we seem to have crammed so much in and looking back it seems to have lasted a long time. So much has changed. It hasn’t been full of anything particularly exciting, no big adventures or trips out that inevitably make time go that little bit faster, just the ordinary every day. Whilst February was very much about spending time together simple family time and being there for each other; March has been about us all as individuals too. Continue reading →

Blinking – Our Own Language {The Ordinary Moments #11}


I sit there on the chair in the corner of a dimly lit room feeding baby R before bedtime. I look at her in amazement, staring right into those big innocent eyes, the eyes that can melt my heart with just a glance, the eyes that just 4 short months ago came screaming into this world changing it forever, the eyes that remind me that time goes by so fast and that I had better soak up every moment whilst I can.
