SNAPSHOTS AND SCENES | FEBRUARY

SNAPSHOTS AND SCENES | FEBRUARY

I am back sharing a new Snapshots and Scenes with you this month. We have had a jam packed month with lots of walks and time spent as a family. The end of the month has seen us close with heavy snow showers and freezing temperatures. But we have made the most of the month and the snow! February has certainly flown by. I actually cannot quite believe we are officially in Spring! But it feels and looks nothing like it. I am desperate for the warmer weather to set in. I am so over the cold.

This month has seen me start a new job! I have not worked in 9 years and I feel so out of the loop, but its very easy and I am able to work from home which is a massive help as I always said I wanted to be around for the children going to school. Its a lovely little company and so far so good! You may of noticed, that February also saw me having a huge clean up on the blog and a little change. I am so proud of it and what makes me love it even more, is I did it!

So without to much rambling, here is our February in pictures and please don’t forget to pop over and and watch my video on youtube! If you want to know more about Sanpshots and Scenes then visit Mel over at Le Con De Mel and find out more about it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEAST FROM THE EAST, SNOW DAYS, KEEPING WARM

BEAST FROM THE EAST, SNOW DAYS, KEEPING WARM

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and that’s a Little Love round-up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat. This week has been a weird week. We started off with a school closure due to no heating. We were expecting to […]

WHAT IM WATCHING | FEBUARY

WHAT IM WATCHING | FEBUARY

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 […]

ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE, RAG ‘N’ BONE MAN, MUDDY BOOTS | LITTLE LOVES

ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE, RAG ‘N’ BONE MAN, MUDDY BOOTS | LITTLE LOVES

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and that’s a Little Love round-up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

I completely failed to join in last week! I’ve a very good reason! I have just got a new job, and I have been training and learning the ropes. Its working from home and I am doing administrative jobs for a lovely little company. I’ve got to admit I felt pretty guilty I didn’t join in as I think its possibly the first ever time I have not joined in! I am a loyal little lover! But after being on the computer all week I needed a rest. I’m back this week with a bumper edition!

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

I have read two books over the last few weeks. Well technically I have not finished the second book, but I have been so excited to open it up. You may of heard of it as its been doing the rounds on Instagram and apparently its had rave reviews. I’m already sucked into the world of Eleanor and i am reading it at every opportunity.

I finished the Escape by Cally Taylor and it was a very good read. If you saw on my Instagram I posted that if you enjoy a physiological thriller then its definitely worth a read. If you read it I would love to know what you think!

I have watched quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. Last week saw the return of Married At First Sight, although the whole concept of marrying a complete stranger is a bit crazy, I am intrigued about the whole science part. I am hooked on it.

I also caught up with 24 Hours In Police Custody this week and it was such a good watch. If you have not watched it then you must because it was a corker. Even if your not a fan of the show, I would still recommend watching!

Last week I also watched Trauma and I was so disappointed with it. The first two episodes had me gripped and then the last was such a let down. It ended on such a downer. It was hyped up to be the “new Doctor Foster” but really it wasn’t!

I am yet to watch Marcella! Its back this week and its currently on my box to watch. Cant wait to delve into this series because I loved the first season!

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man.. I saw him perform live on the Brits {from my sofa} and just fell in love with this song. It was a Duet with Jorja Smith. He has such a soft smooth voice. Think he is my new favourite at the moment.

Muddy boots! During half term we went for a rather long walk. So long it took us four hours round trip! We went through fields, woods and rather large deep muddy puddles. Fleur loved it, kids love it, my legs didn’t enjoy it so much!

You may of noticed, I have had a rather drastic overhaul on the blog. I spent last weekend making changes and then it turned into a massive overhaul. It seemed to take me ages to code and make sure everything was looking ok. Im not techy, but Im really pleased with the outcome!

We have a busy weekend. Tomorrow I am visiting my mum and her husband and then Sunday we are visiting friends. Mr B is going to start the kitchen whilst we are out. I guessed he would get more done if we were not under his feet!

Whatever 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,

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 […]
