Spring Cleaning My Life

Today is the first day of March, and although it may not feel like it, Spring is definitely on the way. I can’t say that January and February have been great for me. The beginning of 2017 definitely hasn’t been the best start to the year. Don’t get me wrong, nothing bad has happened. I’ve had some good times over the last couple of months: My mam came to visit from England, the kids both celebrated their birthdays and I had my first night out for ages. Coupled with lots of nice evening spent watching movies with the kids and […]

Jord Wood Watches Review

I was recently approached by Jord Wood Watches to see if my husband would like to try a watch from their men’s watch range for review. It’s not often that my husband gets the opportunity to review something, so I said yes right away. Having looked at their range, I knew it would be something he’d love. I’m not really a watch person, I have my smart watch and I’m happy with that. My husband is in to watches though, and has different ones for different occasions. He didn’t have a wood watch though, so he was excited to add […]

Lifting the Cabin Fever – The Ordinary Moments

I had pre half term fantasies of lots of nice walks in the cool February sun, hot chocolates in front of the fire, cuddles under the blanket watching some Harry Potter and other nice things. Those plans didn’t quite materialise though. On Monday I […]

My Dream Horse with Petplan Equine

As a child I loved horses and ponies. I spent many an evening playing with my favourite pony toys after school, dreaming that one day I could own a real horse of my own. Each year when asked what I wanted for my birthday, I would always reply “a horse”. To silence my requests, my auntie told me if I was good she’d buy me a horse for my 12th birthday. I never forgot about that. I was thoroughly disappointed when my 12th birthday rolled around and I didn’t receive that special gift. Now I’m the proud mum of a […]

A Visitor – The Ordinary Moments

Last week my mam came to visit us from England. Since moving to Northern Ireland seven years ago, I’ve seen my mam only a handful of times. That’s the problem when you are separated by a body of water, it’s not so easy to visit. It’s not as easy as getting a return on the train and meeting up for the day, or taking a drive on a day off. Visits now tend to be reserved for special occasions, usually Christmas. Unfortunately this Christmas the cost of plane travel was too much, meaning my mam couldn’t visit over the holiday […]
