THE DOUBLE OF ME | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

THE DOUBLE OF ME | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

When people see G and I together, they often say, “She looks just like you.” She is literally the double of me and as she gets older, the more I see it. I was never able to see the resemblance. But now on occasions she will walk […]

A WINTERS BEACH DAY | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

A WINTERS BEACH DAY | THE ORDINARY MOMENTS

Who said you can’t go to the beach in the Winter? Since we got Fleur and since we have always wanted to take her to the beach. We wanted her to be let of the lead and for her to enjoy the fresh sea air, just as we do. Its taken sometime for us to take Fleur. We have just been so busy lately.  Dogs are allowed on the beaches from October till May. Both Mr B and I wanted to get her on one before May crept up on us.

We decided to go to the coast where we knew, so we went slightly further up than we would normally go. Because Fluer adores people, we didn’t want her having any distractions. She was in her element. A little dubious at first to dip her paws in the sea. Once she did though there was no stopping her from having a paddle.

After a very cold walk, throwing stones into the sea and collecting shells, we headed to a little cafe to warm up. G and H indulged themselves in a rather large ice-cream and I may of had a sneaky donut or two. You cannot visit the beach without getting a bag of donuts! Its most definitely a tradition we will be carrying on with.

 

 

I am linking up with Donna over at What The Redhead Said for this linky. I am hoping I can join in weekly! One of many new years resolutions!

SNAPSHOTS AND SCENES | JANUARY

I am back with my monthly Snapshots and Scenes. I’ll be honest, I am not feeling this months video. I think it’s because we have had a full month of sickness and not much getting out and about. So out of my video was filmed […]

FOR THE LOVE OF | BLOGS

FOR THE LOVE OF | BLOGS

This year I am back with my series For The Love Of.. I got a bit waylaid towards the end of last year and missed the last few months. It was originally a weekly feature but I have decided to change it up a little and turn it into a monthly one. Originally it was four categories Blog, Vlog, Instagram and TV. I am still continuing with sharing my favourite Blogs, Volgs and Instagram accounts but those will be once a month {so January is Blogs, Febuary will be Vlogs, March will be Instagram and then it will start over again and so on} I will be doing a stand alone post of favourite TV once a month. So enough babbling! Here are my top three blogs I have been really enjoying lately!

Fritha’s blog is just so lovely. I can’t exactly remember how I found TigerlilyQuinn, but I stumbled across it one day and have now been following for sometime. I’m so pleased she has converted over to YouTube too, as it opens up her blog to so much more. The blog is all about Fritha’s style, fashion, life, travel and family and its one I always like to sit down with a cuppa. I can get lost in it for hours. Fritha is so honest when she writes and comes across as a really lovely down to earth person, which if you watch her YouTube or Stories, then you will understand why I think that. I adore this blog and of you have not checked her out then please do as she is just an all round genuinely lovely person to follow.

This year I recently started back up with a new linky on a sunday {The Ordinary Moments}. I have really been enjoying Laura’s blog. Laura loves photography and this shows throughout her blog. Her photos are gorgeous. Little Ladies Big World is a family, travel and lifestyle blog. Its a collection of adventures where Laura records day to day life. A very honest and real blog, which is what I love about it. If you want to check out Laura’s blog then click on the link to check it out.

Again I found Little Pickles Mom via the Sunday linky I join in with. I am so pleased I did. Its another parenting and lifestyle blog and is written by Holly. Mum to a little boy. She has a love for culture and crafting with some wonderful craft ideas for special occasions. As a family they love to spend time outdoors exploring the countryside. Click on the link above to see why its becoming a firm favourite of mine!

WHAT IM WATCHING | JANUARY

Last year I started a linky called For The Love Of. It was basically a weekly round up of blogs, vlogs, instagram and TV that I was loving. I have decided to continue with the basis of the linky, but have now changed it to […]

ELEVEN WHOLE YEARS

ELEVEN WHOLE YEARS

Eleven years ago today, we became husband and wife.  We didn’t know a lot back then, but we knew one thing for certain: we belonged together. Now, over a decade later, I can say with absolute certainty that the past eleven years have been the […]

LUTHER, CROCHET, WELLY WEATHER | LITTLE LOVES

LUTHER, CROCHET, WELLY WEATHER | LITTLE LOVES

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

We have had another week of sickness. G was ill at the beginning of the week as was off for a few days. I am hating all the sickness going round. I am the only one who has managed to escape it! Fingers crossed it stays like that!

Without to much waffling, here are the little things I have been loving.

I have been a bit slack this week! I even struggled with blog reading too, which is so unlike me as I normally make time throughout the day to check in with my favourites.

Mr B and I have started the second season of Luther. We are really behind with the times with this programme so are catching up on Netflix. I really enjoyed the first season so had high hopes for the second. I was so freaked out with the first episode though I am yet to continue with it! Now don’t get me wrong, I can watch the odd scary programme, but this freaked me out! It was not even that scary!

I managed to catch up with Tyra Banks at the weekend. I am a sucker for America’s Next Top Model. So took an hour out on Saturday and snuck off to my bedroom and caught up with the new series. Definitely a huge guilty pleasure of mine!

I am still very much loving The XX. Ive been listening to them for most of the week. Definitely a new favourite for me.

How awful has the weather been this week?! I have been in my welly boots and rain coat for the best part of the week. Along with the rain, the wind has been pretty brutal. I am longing for Spring. Those slightly warmer days and the fact you can get away with not being able to wear a coat!

I’ve not picked up my crochet hook in so long. I started a blanket a few years ago {cannot believe its been that long!} and I managed to get back into the swing of crochet at the weekend. I forgot how much I missed it. I’m hoping I don’t leave it too long before picking up a hook again!

I made a shepherds pie this week too {or was it cottage?!} It went down really well. I had my mum and her husband for dinner. I have to admit, one of the best Ive made. Yesterday I also made a lasagne for tea. G and H refuse to eat it so I made it just for Mr B and I. Is anyone else’s child a really fussy eater?

I have a very busy weekend. The puppy is going in for a pamper so whilst she is in the parlour we have to go and buy G and H some new trainers. H has had a big growth spurt so he also needs some new trousers. I am then off out in the evening to a charity event with some friends. I’m really looking forward to it. I feel a little guilty though as its also our 11th wedding anniversary! I’ve persuaded Mr B to celebrate a day early so tonight we will be having cheeky take away!

What ever your up too, i hope you have a wonderful weekend!

 

I am linking up with the ever so lovely Morgana over at her new blog Coffee Work Sleep Repeat  for this linky,
