Two little Ducks went swimming one day…

Do you remember that nursery rhyme? My kids both loved it. Neither have mentioned it for a few years but last week it popped back into my head. When we decided to go to Disney again, we decided to make it a longer trip. Our last trip with the kids had been hard for Elijah. […]

‘We are warriors, that’s what we’ve become’

‘I wont let them break me down to dust’ I am a product of all my experiences. They have shaped me and moulded me. They have never controlled me or defined me. For many years in my life I believed I was ‘never enough’. In recent years this thought has reoccurred in my darkest times. […]

The Greatest Showman

We went to see The Greatest Showman in the cinema yesterday as a family and I have to say what an amazing way to start 2018. I would confidently say that this will be the best film we see this year. There wasn’t a moment that I could take my eyes off the screen, I […]

A spoonful of sugar…

Today miss Megan had her 9th birthday Party and although she was turning 9 this was only the second birthday party she has had. It took me a good few years to recover from the first one!! Todays party was simply amazing though and I cant wait for her to go back again, and Eli […]

A whole new world…

I’ll be your clown.

A few weeks ago I wrote about how Megan was about to take part in her first school play. Of course it went amazingly and she was a wee superstar, in fact all the kids where outstanding really. It was lovely to see so many personailities be given the chance to shine in such different […]

Finding a balance.

This week Ben and I where very blessed to get two nights away to Galgorm Resort and Spa. This is by far Bens favourite type of holiday or break and all other chances of booking holidays in the year are a total no go unless there is space and budget for at least one trip […]
