Thought I would start this new year with a challenge to myself, because it's already been an absolute pile of crap, why not add to it? In all seriousness though, this is something I've been thinking about for a while. Last year I rediscovered my passion for charity shops and eBay, I also found so … Continue reading Ditching the High Street
1. Christmas It's not the Christmas that any of us had planned, but I think it went alright. The kids had no idea what was going on, but they loved every minute of it and I loved that they loved it, especially their new trampoline (although, I might come to regret in the future). Also, … Continue reading 3 Things I’m Thankful for This December
Ok, so my last post was actually my 100th post on the blog, but 100 posts is quite an achievement in my book, so I wanted to do a blogpost about it. Now I know for some, a 100 posts is nothing, but for me it's something. Something that I've done, that I've achieved over … Continue reading My 100th Post.
So, it's all gone a bit shite, hasn't it? For those who don't know, I live in Wales, which is back in lockdown, the joy. As a result, I've spent the last few days wondering if there is any real point of doing Christmas properly this year. Restrictions are only being lifted for Christmas day, … Continue reading The Show Must Go On (Or in This Case, Christmas)
My baby is officially a toddler, I don't know whether to scream, cry or laugh (perhaps all three would work). So, remember when I wrote that Sigi is a really easy, happy baby, well, I take it all back. I don't know what happened, but after Sigi's first birthday, she has developed more of an … Continue reading Sigi’s 18 Month Update.
1. Getting into the Christmas Spirit This is has been a bit crap, hasn't it? But one thing that has put a smile on my face, is how much people are getting into Christmas early this year. Decorations are going up, mince pies are being bought and Christmas songs are on the radio. I know … Continue reading Three Things I’m Grateful For This November
This is my second year doing Christmas Eve Boxes (or in our case, bags). I really loved doing it last year and looking forward to it even more this year. Now, with both kids still being young, I've kept in the same as last year, with one slight difference (they're both getting chocolate this year). … Continue reading Christmas Eve Boxes/Bags
Noelle Noelle stars the goddess, that is, Anna Kendrick as Santa's little sister, who has to find her brother after he goes AWOL. It's a classic Christmas feel good comedy, along the lines of Santa Clause and Home Alone, that I can't wait to watch. It's on Disney+ from 27th November Christmas Chronicles 1 & … Continue reading Christmas Movies I’m Looking Forward to this Year
1. Halloween It's my favourite holiday (to the surprise of no one) and while I've not been able to celebrate the way I originally planned too (I was going to take the kids trick or treating) but we've had alot of fun anyways. The kids had a pumpkin hunt and me and Frey did some … Continue reading 3 Things I’m Thankful for This October
1. Halloween Movie Marathon I'll be honest, this would happen even if we weren't dealing with all the restrictions. Right now, the kids aren't really interested on live action movies, so the plan is to watch all our favourite cartoon Halloween films one afternoon, curled up on the sofa with popcorn and a large blanket, … Continue reading 5 Ideas for Halloween in Lockdown
