Sunday Thoughts #10


To be honest I didn't think I'd get a chance to do my weekly blog post this week, so better late than never! I knew it wouldn't be on Sunday because we were away in Liverpool but it's a busy week too with the kids needing taking here, there and everywhere and Aled's shifts so I'm squeezing this in while I wait for him to get back from the gym so I can nip to Tesco's to do our food shop! Talk about being back down to earth with a bump after our weekend away, I've been straight back into potty training, making lunch boxes and fixing Ollie's lego masterpieces. Plus today I washed Elsie's Wonder Woman costume after superhero day at nursery.... and the glitter off it has spread to all the other clothes in the washing machine #niceoneemma. But it's kinda nice to be back to the normalities, we needed the mini break and I'm feeling all refreshed now.

Sunday Thoughts #9


I've spent the whole afternoon cleaning the house and I feel so good for it. I'm definitely a tidy house, tidy mind person and I've needed that more than ever recently. Having a couple of rooms clean and tidy is always nice but the whole house is just bliss 🙌 Hardly every happens these days though as it's bigger than the old house so takes much more time, but today was a write off with the weather so I played games with the kids this morning and then they've just been chilling watching films whilst I cleaned! Plus Aled was working anyway, but he's off for three weekends now so let the fun family days begin.

Sunday Thoughts #8


Well wasn't today just beautiful?! Everything feels so much better when the sun is shining! I used to love Winter before I had kids, now it's just a huge inconvenience to having days out as it tends to rain (a lot) here. So I'm definitely a Spring and Summer lover now. We can pack lighter, not come home soaking wet and have picnics more often. We went for a walk up Marl Woods with my Mum today and it was so beautiful at the top. I could have sat there all day, it was around 17 degrees! Crazy! I hope this today is a glimpse of whats to come this year, roll on the BBQs.

Sunday Thoughts #7


Sunday thoughts.... on a Monday as I was too engrossed in painting the downstairs loo last night that I totally forgot about my blog post until 11pm when I got into bed! So yep, I spent all of last night painting the cloakroom and OMG I love it!! Just need the loo, sink and radiator fitting and that room will be all done. The bathrooms still a while off but my amazing Dad's getting there (and there's no major rush as the kids are just using our shower anyway). Definitely going to order some Lush bath bombs this week though, in preparation for that first soak in the new bath 😍

Sunday Thoughts #6


Apart from both myself and Aled having stinking colds, we've had a pretty good weekend! The biggest news is that the downstairs loo and the kids' bathroom has been ripped out and Dad's been busy working away starting on the new ones. I honestly can not wait to see them both finished. They're the last rooms to get done in the house for a while now. After they're finished, there's just the hallway/stairs carpet to replace and then we'll have to save for a while to get the garage converted into a room and then a new kitchen and utility at some point too. But we are getting the garden done this year which will be amazing. The only part of the old house I miss is the garden because it was perfect for the kids to go out and play in, there were pretty flower beds and we had something to actually sit on! But the garden here still has one section of decking to pull up and then levelling, slabs, new turf, plants, furniture....  the list goes on. But it'll be worth it by the summer 🌣🌻
