Share Your Year 2018 – A link up

It’s that time of year again, time to try and remember what we were up to a mere 12 months ago, and condense all the highlights into one blog post! Every year I host ‘Share Your Year’ as a way for people to share the past year, posts in any format are welcome as long as it includes a recap of…

Me and Mine in December 18

Here’s our last monthly family photo of the year… I’m keeping the first one in because I love that Athena has her eyes closed! We took these a couple of days ago on our way home from Norfolk, at a country park just off the M25 somewhere, that also happened to have a fair an elf garden! We spent a…

Sam has been busy…

So I give you two selfies, one from our day out at Chessington and one at The Big Feastival, and also a photo of us all wearing masks…

Me and Mine in July 18

July has been a lovely month for us, but so busy too. The end of the school term, my pre-holiday panics about anything and everything (packing for this holiday, the fact that we’re away on the next one the day after we get back, how am I going to get work done with kids at home…) and Sam starting up…
