Siblings {January 2017}

I am so happy this month to be not only joining in with Siblings for another year but also co-hosting it. It’s a linky I’ve loved since it started – when Little Man was just a few months old. It’s one of the things that keeps my blog focused on the children, their milestones and their relationship and I’m honoured that Lucy has asked me to be part of the Siblings team this year.

Back to the School Run {The Ordinary Moments}

The last week has really seen us getting back into our typical routine. We’ve had school runs, Hubby’s shifts, blog work and all the other stuff that comes with being both a parent and a blogger. It’s been a busy week but one that I am glad is over – it has been tough on all of us.

Getting up in the morning is hard. Getting the children up in the morning is hard. But we just plough on and somehow everyone gets to school, I breathe a sigh of relief and watch the time pass so quickly before it’s time to pick them up again.

Mornings are hard for all of us but we are trying to do little things each morning that make us all happy, trying to start the day off the right way. LP loves scooting to school – unless she’s that tired that it’s just too much for her. So we’ve been walking to school as much as possible, with her scooting in front, singing to herself and telling me that she’s gone up a level every time she passes a lamp post – no idea what that’s about.

An Open Letter to Chris Bryant

Dear Chris Bryant

Yesterday was National Kiss a Ginger Day, a day that I wrote about last year and a day, quite frankly, that shouldn’t exist. Contrary to what you may think, my dislike for the day is not about the word ginger being used – it’s not a term I find offensive and it tends to only be seen as derogatory by people who don’t themselves have ginger hair. My dislike of the day runs much deeper.

However, I thought that this year the day would go unmarked. That people wouldn’t, this year, send me kisses on social media and instead it could just be swept under the carpet, losing impact as each year goes by. But no. The day after the supposed National Kiss a Ginger Day I wake up to the news that you, Mr Bryant, MP of Rhondda, had taken it upon yourself to wish John Bercow a Happy Kiss a Ginger Day in the House of Commons.

Gilmore Girls, Nina Simone and Omelettes #LittleLoves

Another week and I’m here again – two Little Loves in a row is better than I did last year! I think I may be on a roll! This has been a mixed bag of a week – with more building work, school runs and then a pretty epic spa day yesterday! I’m also off somewhere very exciting today but I can’t tell you about it yet – watch this space!
