Life lately….{in photos}

Hey, everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve shared a little update on our life because, well, life at the moment is pretty crazy. Understatement! First of all, can I just ask you guys, are you all finding it as hard as I am to find that elusive balance between entertaining kids & work? Because even though we’re almost 6 weeks into our summer holidays {Northern Irish kids finish on June 30th} I’m still struggling to balance kids and work and even at this stage, with a few weeks to go before they go back to school I doubt I’m all-of-a-sudden going to figure it out.

I’ll be honest with you, we’ve not been to that many places during our summer holidays and mainly because our summer hasn’t been that good. We’ve had unfortunate weather {isn’t that always the way!?}, also we don’t drive and all of our funds have been going into our up and coming wedding. Obviously, with the exception of our Summer holiday with Haven in Somerset, we’ve not been much further than the local park and city visits.

This summer has brought loads of new passions for the children and Annabelle has fallen in love with flower crowns lately and she looks gorgeous in them too.

At the end of July I managed to get out for the night {kid-free!} with friends to see The Dead Daisies in the Limelight in Belfast. Awesome band and we even got to meet them after. Really cool guys and it was a great night off being Mum!

This summer saw my son Jacob finish football camp and he brought home another trophy and medal to add to his collection. He has fallen in love with this sport and it is slowly taking over his life. I wouldn’t change his passion for the game, however, I would change his smelly football boots once he’s finished a game, though! 😉

The end of July saw our wedding invitations finally finished and posted and even though I was a few weeks behind when I hoped to get them out, it’s as the famous saying goes – better late than never!

We’ve been doing a little summer school lately too. Nothing heavy, thirty minutes a day to get the kids re-tuned for going back to school. I think doing something like this is super important and it really helps the children get back into using those brains for more than lazy mornings and days playing non-stop.

The start of August saw us have final dress fittings for the Wedding too, which included Ellies pretty tea length dress {to match my style} – it’s getting so close now, eek! Doesn’t she looks so dainty and pretty in that dress too. Now we just need to sort out that hair of hers that she hates to brush! 

Also, I think I have painted more faces in the last week than I have this entire year. Annabelle went through a funny wee phase of wanting her face painted every hour for an entire week. In one day we have had a Pirate {see above}, a cat, a knight and even a superhero with added cape for effect.

I think that’s us pretty much caught up! Life is whirling by at such an alarming rate but I’ll see you all next time!
