Not just a Conker Tree.. #WhatsTheStory

By | October 7, 2013

This is a conker tree, just at the boundary to D’s school. It represents much more than just conkers to us, which D loves collecting by the way. For ages, the tree had a shiny helium balloon caught up on its higher branches, over time we could see how the wind had twisted the ribbon […]

Definitely out-of-sync Sat 5th Oct 2013

By | October 5, 2013

There nearly wasn’t a blog tonight and I’ve been conspicuous by my absence today (sorry). Today has not been the best day for T and D, I knew it wouldn’t be and it’s been a case of trying to balance moods, requirements and expectations, only to hear and see them going for each other as […]

The wrong side of the road… Mon 30th Sept 2013

By | September 30, 2013

Oh goodness, in D’s eyes I have got so much wrong today but (ssssh) I seem to have been forgiven. My children thrive on routine and knowing what is happening and exactly when, a Mumma who tries to throw a bit of change into the mix…silly woman, hasn’t she learnt by now?!? This morning, for […]

Running body-slams! Weds 11th Sept 2013

By | September 11, 2013

It’s always been the same greeting, right from the time she was in nursery. I always know when she’s not had a good day because […]

Timetable Tuesday 13th August 2013

By | August 13, 2013

We had a trip to town today, to replace the books that T had lost, this has been causing him anxieties for a couple of weeks. I’ve held back from replacing them in the hope they’d turn up – and we’ve (erm, no that would be me) looked into every conceivable place in the house. […]

Jinxed it!! Sat 3rd August 2013

By | August 3, 2013

Maybe, just maybe, I should not have blogged that I was missing some "me-time" during the school holidays…I had plenty of that before the rest of the house woke up, I was awake from 3.30am! It felt peaceful having a coffee in the garden watching the sky get brighter and yep, I wrote a post: […]

Something else off the list! Friday 2nd August 2013

By | August 2, 2013

Last night was a loooong one. T was, I think, over tired and a bit warm so, despite his melatonin he didn’t settle until very late. Whilst it was nice to have some Mumma-T time, we ended up watching old episodes of "Birds of a Feather" which he found very funny, it made me realise […]
