A Walk In The Woods: Weekend Blog Hop..


Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend blog hop. Every day me and Mollie take a few walks in the wood. We take the same route and play the same game of frisbee as Mollie loves routine.  Every photo of Mollie the Collie is of her in full focused frisbee mode. I wish I could be this focused on exercise!!

Market Square Nottingham : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


Happy Wednesday and welcome to this weeks blog hop. 

Today I am taking you on a little trip to Nottingham and around The Market Square. Me and my daughter went out on Saturday for a girly shopping trip and notice the big wheel of Nottingham is back up until March. The weather was amazing. You could have easily mistaken it for a beautiful Spring day.

Staring Competition But He Always Wins: Wednesday Blog Hop...


Winter for me is a little bit boring. Same old thing! Every day. Nothing much new to see as it is always to cold to go out to far. Not many days out or places to go and if we do get out, it is too cold to take photos!!


Today I am sharing some pictures of  a tree! I see this tree every day on my walks with Mollie the Collie. Well twice a day, mornings and afternoon!

Winter Berries : The Wednesday Blog Hop...


Thankfully the weather has warmed up this week. I though Winter had set in when I woke up to the frost about a week ago. Come rain or shine I have to still take Mollie the Collie walkies so I made the most of the frost and took some pictures...


Love to see the pops of red from the berries underneath the frost!

Happy Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday photo blog hop. Do you want to join us and link up any post that have pictures in them today?. Any family friendly posts welcome, outfits, crafts, recipes and photography.

Cross Country,Wrapping Up Warm,The Wednesday Blog Hop...


What a week so far. Cold, frosty and oh so rainy!! Not to mention the darkness is arriving earlier and earlier each night. The kids have to rush home from school and change into their running clothes straight away to catch the remaining sunlight. Then off for a little run, by the time we are back the streetlights light the way.


Occasionally all that training is put to good use and they get a chance to compete in X Country races. This past Saturday morning as an example. Cold, Frosty, but thankfully not much mud yet!!

So Far So Good: The Wednesday Blog Hop..


So far so good!! My open plan kitchen is on it's way. The shelves are up and one coat of black varnish is nearly covered it. (This photo was taken a few days ago!). So far it has used 3 tins of varnish. My husband had to come home from work tonight and drive out miles to our nearest Ikea for another 4 tins of varnish to cover the rest and varnish it once more.


I don't think I ever want to varnish my own shelves again!! There has been tears, lol! Hopefully it will look great once finished!!

20 Year Anniversary...


Today is me and the Mr's 20th Wedding Anniversary today.

20 year; being married!! 

How time flies.

It only feels like yesterday a few years ago. I was getting my words all jumbled up. Nothing new there then!

When I nearly said I would take this man to be my unlawful husband! Before I quickly change it.


I'm not sure who deserves the medal more. Ha!!

Me or him!!

I'm saying me ;)

And I'm sure hubby would say him!

Mollies Lion King Moment!!


My husband is off work this week and today we had a drive out to Sherwood Forest, in Nottinghamshire.

Mollie was running around like a kid in a sweet shop. She was so excited about running around and all the new smells.

I was so pleased when I mangaed to take this photo. I just love this one!!

For some reason it just reminds me of The Lion King!!
