Trolley Love

Whenever we go to a supermarket now, Boo likes to sit in the trolley with Little Man. She used to love being free to look at (and grab) everything, but the lure of being in there with her brother must be too tempting! This is very handy for me, as it means that they are …

Thank You, Twitter

  Dear Twitter, Since you came into my life, you have given me so much. I felt it was about time that I thanked you for it and shared all that you have done. For the purposes of this letter, I will overlook the time that you may have (most definitely have) sapped from my …

The School-Run

As I write this, I’ve now completed two morning school-runs. Just two, and I have to say, I’m not keen. Boo is only at pre-school, so she goes for two full days a week. She is at the same nursery that she’s been at since January, but she did two afternoons then and on the …

Way Back When…

For this week’s What’s the Story? Boo and I have been looking through old photo albums. Boo is particularly keen on our photos from Disneyworld, way before she was born, and she’s mightily impressed that we met Mickey! But it was actually this photo that caught my eye, as it was like a different world …

Little Man is 1 Today!

It’s first birthday time at the Reading Residence today! Though I can hardly believe that this time has already come, it is Little Man’s birthday today. Here he was this time last year… He arrived by planned C-Section at 11.12 am on 3rd September, 2012, and came into the world screaming and protesting at being …

Story of Mum

Today, I’m delighted to be taking part in the Story of Mum blog tour and exhibition. As mothers, it’s not often that we feel seen, heard and valued. Yet our everyday stories matter, and sharing them can inspire others. Story of Mum: Mums making an exhibition of ourselves is a touring programme of exhibitions and …

The Next Picasso?

The 3 year-old is into her drawing and colouring-in in quite a big way. She adores it. She has endless colouring books, blank pads, crayons and also a blackboard for her to indulge all of her creative urges. The blackboard is responsible for regular doodles (the husband has been known to partake, too..!). Now, I …

Room 101 Meme

I’ve been tagged! Thanks to Sarah over at MyBeautifulThree, I’ve been asked to share with you three things that I’d put into Room 101. You’ll probably know what Room 101 is, from either the book or the TV programme. In case you don’t, here’s a quote from Orwell’s 1984 to give you a feel for …

Cousins

As I like to on a Monday, I’m linking up today’s post with What’s the Story? and Magic Moments. I’m sharing a photo with you that was taken last summer, when Little Man was yet to make his appearance, hence him not getting in on the action!   Boo (and now Little Man) are very …
