As a mum and as a blogger I take 100s of photos. It’s something I like doing and a way to help document our family life. However, once I’ve taken these photos, looked through them and plucked out a couple that I choose to share on social media. The rest of them are simply moved to a file within my Google Drive. Where they might get a quick search through when I am looking for a particular photo or a snapshot from a place that we visited.… View Post

The month that was… February

The month that was… February

Oh February, where did you go? Apart from the fun of half term holidays, I’m not entirely sure I can recall the rest of the days. Valentine’s Day was a quiet affair as always but lovely to spend time with Mr Boo – despite not being able to actually go out out. … View Post

What The Dad Said | Valentine’s Day as parents who live on an island

Valentine’s Day should be another day for us to celebrate together, having basically no child care means this is very tough (same at our wedding anniversary). I heard recently that “it takes a village to raise a family” but for us, we “parents who are on an island” it’s just us, this Valentine’s Day was another example.… View Post

The month that was… January

As quickly as it came the first month of 2019 is over already. I’m still very much trying to implement my word of the year ‘balance’ into my life. I know that I cannot continue to do everything and attempt to please everyone all the time. I’ve been turning away campaigns and projects that I know I can’t dedicate the time to. As well as saying no to things within my day to day life that I’d normally say yes to for the fear of saying no. … View Post

Clearing the drafts

Clearing the drafts

Over the festive break, I took a look at all the posts sitting in my drafts folder. The ones where I have written whole posts about something. The ones where I have scribbled my immediate thoughts and feelings on a subject. And the ones that I just needed to get the ramblings out of my head.… View Post

Grief | The Unanswered Questions

Grief | The Unanswered Questions

Today, five years ago I received a phone call to tell me that my Dad (Bob) had died. I can still recall the moments leading up to that final phone call. The anger, the pain, the disappointment in my older sister for behaving in such a way. Which given that is her personality type, I really shouldn’t have been too surprised.… View Post

Word of the Year 2019

Word of the Year 2019

I’ve never been great at making and keeping resolutions. Those grand plans of losing weight, eating better, getting fit etc. Last year I wrote 18 goals for 2018 and if I’m honest they were forgotten about before January was even over.… View Post
