We’ve not done much this week. The weather has been awful, like much of the rest of the country, so apart from school, swimming lessons and Gabe’s singing group and soft play we haven’t really been anywhere.
There’s been a lot of LEGO play this week, and a fair bit of screen time but the boys have been happy and have actually been playing really well together lately. It seems at three and a half Gabe is now getting big enough to play with Toby without always being the annoying baby brother. Of course they still squabble but it is getting better…. long may it continue!
After being stuck inside for most of the week with the rainy weather, yesterday the sun came out so we all went to the park for a bit of fresh air. Gabe had been asking to go all week but it was always either raining or just not a great time of day so when we actually had a chance to go we had to make the most of it.

OK, OK, don’t shoot me – I know it’s only March and as I sit here wrapped in a blanket as the rain pours outside I know it seems like we’re a long way from summer but with that unseasonably warm weather we had a few weeks ago my thoughts are turning to my spring / summer wardrobe. Read more
Another week has flown by – I can’t believe we’re on week 10 of the year already! This is such a short half term too. The boys have only just gone back to school and nursery but it’s only four weeks until they break up again! Read more
I’m back again with another Living Arrows post – these seem to be pretty much all I’m posting on my blog at the moment, but I’m glad I am because without these posts I probably wouldn’t be writing anything at all! Read more
Wow! I know it’s the shortest month but February really has disappeared in the blink of an eye. We’ve had a good month all told – no-one has been ill, we had a few weekend adventures and a good week off for half term too. Read more
Well, just like that half term is over and we’re back to school and nursery this morning (and I’m taking the opportunity to try and get the house clean and tidy again!) We’ve had a lovely week off – well me and the boys at least, poor Barry has still been working. Read more
Back in November we decided to make one of the biggest changes to our house since we had a new kitchen diner six months after we moved in. Two and a half years after moving here we finally got rid of our horrid old brown bathroom in a complete bathroom renovation! Read more
Last week was the last week of school for us and apart from a school disco for Toby it was a quiet one as usual. This weekend though was a little bit different. For the second time ever we left the boys overnight with my mum and dad and went away. Read more
It’s been a bit of a strange week here – I went to a funeral in Leeds on Wednesday, which meant swapping Gabe’s days at nursery and it’s made me feel a bit topsy-turvy all week. The boys both seem really tired at the moment too, I think we’re definitely ready for half-term next week! Read more

Back in October last year I got an email that intrigued me. It was from a company called Vitl who specialise in DNA testing specifically focused on nutrition. The results of their DNA test can help you understand how your genes may affect your ability to achieve a healthy weight, or which vitamins your body may find difficult to process. Read more
