{The Ordinary Moments 17} #13 ‘A random little photo shoot with my boy’
Life has been so busy lately, just one big muddled up mix of school run's, day to day life routines, work, extra work projects, life admin and generally trying to raise three little people. I wrote about this last week but one thing that I am finding that I am struggling with is my blog/you tube balance. Blogging was...

{The Ordinary Moments 17} #12 ‘For the love of Video’
As you read this I will be currently be in California on the trip of a lifetime with our little family. It is something which we have been planning for years, it is somewhere I have been wanting to go ever since I was young, but we never quite knew when the right time was. We decided to bite...

{The Ordinary Moments 17} #11 ‘Happy Mother’s Day and Six years of Blogging’
It's been a funny old week here. I have a tendency to let how I am feeling reflect on my blog and in what I write and share. I've been feeling quite anxious this week, nothing serious but as such I haven't felt like writing much. I am a natural born worrier and since having children this has got...

{The Ordinary Moments 17} #10 ‘You are Eleven Months’
My Beautiful Little Bird, Yesterday you turned eleven months. In all honesty to me it feels like sort of a milestone month, even though you wouldn't normally think of it that way. The last month before one. Probably the most bittersweet one of them all. Speeding towards being a whole twelve months old. A year. 365 days. No longer a...

{THE Ordinary Moments 17} #8 ‘The comfort of the Ordinary’
I've been writing these 'Ordinary Moments' posts for a good couple of years now and of course there have been times when I have missed the odd week, mainly due to illness or holiday's. But for the most part I have managed to think of something to write most weeks for quite a long time. Sometimes the posts are...

{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 17} #7 ‘A REBOOT’
As I write this it is Saturday evening. Jon is in the kitchen cooking our usual Saturday night meal of fajitas. I'm sitting on the sofa waiting for him to finish, then I will put the computer away and we will snuggle down to watch 'This is Us' which is our new obsession. I've lit a couple of candles,...

{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 17} #6 ‘YOU ARE FOUR’
To my Dearest LL, Firstly I should start this letter by apologising to you for not writing you a little note for absolutely ages. I looked back at my letters to you thinking that the last one I would have written to you would have probably been your last birthday, but I am embarrassed to say it was even longer...

{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 17} #5 ‘THE WOBBLY TOOTH’
It was a couple of weeks ago that she first noticed it. 'Mummy, Daddy! Guess what! I've got a wobbly tooth, look.' I've never seen anyone so excited about something that actually is a little bit gross. At first I wasn't sure if it actually was, whether she wanted it to be wobbly so much that she was actually...

{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 17} #4 ‘CAUSE THAT’S JUST WHAT WE DO’
It's 10.40pm. Or it might be 10.45, 10.30 or even 11pm. It's around that time though, I am certain of it. So certain I don't even need to glance at my watch, for it is the same every single night. The whimpering that begins from upstairs. Both Jon and I look at each other as it starts, we almost...
