Our Thursday photo #64

I can’t believe another week has passed already and Thursday has come round again. Mercifully, tomorrow marks the end of my month of working all hours god sends to try to earn a bit of extra money. It has gone quite well and I will be able to start looking at my business again as of next week. Having a month that has been even more difficult has led me to form some small aims for some time to myself. From next week, I intend to make time to do an hour’s exercise at least twice a week. I also aim…

Giant Lego trail at Slimbridge

Today, we spent a lovely morning on the trail of the amazing giant Lego figures at WWT Slimbridge. We were lucky enough to be joined for the day by an fabulous local photographer. The weather was not kind to us, but nonetheless we had a lovely day, as we always do at Slimbridge. I think I have mentioned before that Lia is rather a big fan of ducks. This  makes Slimbridge her ideal day out. For Libby, anywhere outdoors, especially where there is a park, is great fun. Slimbridge is relatively local to us and it’s one of those places that we…

It’s as much for my sanity as theirs, there’s nothing worse than bored children. As a result, this week has been full of fun mornings out.…

A picture speaks a minion words

I’ve never been a particularly materialistic person. This is one character trait that I’m rather pleased my children seem to have inherited. Neither of them ever really ask for things or want expensive toys or clothes. But Libby is getting to an age where little gifts can make her really happy. On her birthday, she strangely only wanted my sister to buy her a present. She didn’t want anything from anybody else. And the only thing she asked my sister for was a colouring book. Occasionally though, there is something that she really, really takes to. Minions, for example. The…

My week has been a product of my own failure to accept my limitations. Which is the story of my life really. I am aiming to start getting my palm oil free business up and running next month. In order to get going, I of course have to build up the money to do so. Being freelance, I’m in the fortunate position to be able to take on more work to build up a financial pot. Sadly, I was barely coping with the amount I was doing before. So upping my workload has been fairly horrific. Throw in a weekend away and…
