Its been another one of those weeks. For several months I have managed to run the blog and work along side it efficiently. But for some reason I am really struggling in the evenings to be motivated enough to write. Quite often I just sit with my laptop on my lap wondering where to start. Work is going well albeit very busy with lots of new projects which I think is using my most of my mental capacity at the moment. I just keep needing to remind myself that this is meant to be enjoyable… it could be time for a little break.
My weekly Look Magazine which may have lead to a new bag purchase… opps! I am hoping it will arrive in time for next weekend. I have also been reading my CV and a job application for work. Its a promotion I REALLY want! Yet I have a suspicion it may not be in the grand plan, yet I will put my all into it regardless as if you don’t try you never know. Plus if this one isn’t meant to be I will have gained experience for next time.
Monkey has been reading The Wildest Cowboy. Its a book which I really like, it has a very strong message as it teaches children not to live in fear.

W E D N E S D A Y • 2 5 / 0 4 It was so nice spending the weekend outside, we did as much as we could in the garden including the first BBQ of the season. Yay! Monkey also did his reading practice outside, trying out The Wildest Cowboy written by Garth Jennings and Sara Ogilvie. The story is all about Bingo B Brown and his little dog who roll into town with a wagon full of Wild West goodies. Only to find that the town is scared of the Wildest Cowboy in the West! Not wanting to give too much away…..Bingo B Brown comes to the rescue. I love the way the sentences almost sing to you and the message in the story is a very important one where fun wins out over fear. The book is available now on amazon. #ad @macmillankidsuk #thewildestcowboy #saraogilvie
This week we have been sent a new film to review. Sheep and Wolves. In a magical faraway land, in a picturesque village nestled among green meadows and rolling hills, lives a flock of carefree sheep. But their idyllic and stress-free solitude is interrupted when a pack of wolves sets up camp in a nearby ravine.
When the wolves retiring pack leader Magra announces that his future successor must prove his worth by defeating their rivals, the powerful and blood-thirsty Ragear steps forward. But, the only wolf brave enough to challenge himGrey, the packs favourite but hopeless goofball who must prove his worth by overcoming his fears. However after taking a magical potion to boost his courage, he suddenly turned into …A ram!
I really liked the film with its feel good message and happy ending. Which is just as well since we have watched it several times over. Rated PG its one of my new favourites. If you would like to get your hands on a copy then please enter via the gleam application at the bottom of this post.
Since this weeks been so busy we haven’t made anything other than dinner, the beds and washing. I am hoping to get a little more creative in the coming weeks. Especially with Kippers second Birthday coming up.
Still sticking to the theme of what the kids wore, with the weather taking a turn for the better last weekend I was very grateful for Kippers new outfit from UBANG. He looks so grown up in this photo.

M O N D A Y • 2 3 / 0 4 I had a quiet weekend with the boys spending time in the sun and exploring various gardens. I have been writing all about it over on my #LivingArrows post which is now live. I took a lot of photos this weekend which maybe because I have brought myself a new lens. It has resulted with me falling back in love with my old trusty DSLR. In this photo Kipper is smiling at my mum, before promptly getting himself into mischief! I was so grateful for his outfit in this picture from @ubang_official. The hot weather took us a little by surprise and lacking very much in the heat wave clothing department, so I was very grateful for this short and tee combo. Along with his super comfy blue shoes from @bobuxshoes #gifted.
