Siblings || June 2016


Sometimes, I plan our day's out weeks and weeks in advance, if something goes wrong on the day I get awfully upset. I found myself with an unexpected weekend off, which meant I also hadn't had the time to arrange anything to do or anywhere to go.

After enjoying a lazy Saturday morning at home we packed a picnic and headed  for Penrhos Country Park; we've never been there before but I had seen other people's photos on Facebook. Last minute unplanned days out really are the best, aren't they.

A letter to Martha Grace || June 2016


My Amazing Baby Girl,

The half term holidays that I had been looking forward to for so long have been and gone. We didn't get to do anything of the things that I had planned because your brother was ill at the beginning of the week; by the end of the week, you and Isabella had caught the sickness bug too. We haven't sent you to school because we want to make sure you are over it properly first. But I do have the weekend off this weekend so I hope we get to make up for our missed days out.

School finished up early for you three because there were two INSET days in the final week before half term. I'm so glad we went out to Greenwood Forest Park on the Friday before anyone became sick. While we were there I checked my phone to find a text from your Daddy, "Call me when you can!" and I just knew why he needed to speak to me.

Me and Mine || May 2016


It's Monday night, I'm on the sofa with a panad looking through my photos trying my best to ignore Game of Thrones - way to gruesome for me.

Bank Holiday weekends are so, so precious nowadays; Mark works 9 to 5 Monday to Friday and I work Saturday and Sunday's - Bank Holiday Monday's are like a freebie day off that neither of us needs to use a day's holiday for (we're saving ours for London with Martha)

Today was doubly special because it's Osh's 10th Birthday. I had big ideas of heading down to Pwllheli and spending the day at the beach and at the fairground. Pwllheli is my happy place and the kids love it there too. But Osh has been ill since last night and there was no way we could make him spend a day at the beach - he would have been miserable. My really goes out to him, it's awful to be ill on your birthday especially when you've been looking forward to it for so long
