Be Positive | Our Sunday photo 2/52

10 January 2021

No comments
Disclosure - Previously gifted item. 

At the moment everything feels negative. There doesn't seem to be much positivity in the air but I am trying my best to not let the negativity take over. I have been writing in my planner and it's really helping me.

The positive planner

The positive planner
Each day I focus on my mantra, my positive intentions, my top three to-do's, my self care moment and my note to self. In the evening I reflect on my day. 

I have never done anything like this before but the way the world is at the moment I have enjoyed trying to pick out the positives and they are there but I just have to search a little harder to find them.

Looking For Snow | Our Sunday Photo 1/52 (2021)

3 January 2021

No comments
Over the past few days little J has come in to our bedroom and opened the blinds to see if it has snowed overnight. He reminds me of the boy from The Snowman. Luckily we have had a few flurries so he has been able to go out in the garden to play.

I love the snow but we never seem to get enough so that you can build a snowman or go sledging. Hopefully this year we will.

Rock On Tommy | Our Sunday Photo 01/11/2020

Last week brought the sad news that Bobby Ball from the famous comedy duo Cannon and Ball died of Covid-19. I was brought up watching Cannon and Ball and I have fond memories watching them in action, they were so funny together. 

Blackpool Tower


On Thursday Blackpool Tower lit up in memory of Bobby which was a lovely gesture and tribute to the comedy star. I know he will be missed by all his family, friends and fans and it's such a shame that we have lost a true national treasure to this horrible virus

Little J is so desperate to go to Blackpool Pleasure Beach so we have decided to take him in a few weeks. Today we visited Southport and from the end of the pier you can see the Blackpool Tower and  'The Big One' ride. He was so happy to see it and I think it's made him even more excited now.

Helicopter Watching | Our Sunday Photo 28/52

Whilst we were sat looking out over the calm water we heard a rumble and a helicopter came flying past really low over the river. We haven't seen many planes or helicopters over lockdown so it was really strange.

Cinnamon Swirls

Over the past few weeks John has been creating home videos of our holiday in Orlando last year. It's been so lovely looking back at our adventures in Disney, SeaWorld and Universal Studios. Whilst watching our Universal Studios video we realised that although we all love cinnamon swirls we have never been to a Cinnabon bakery, even though there is one right there in Universal. Although they probably won't taste the same we have made our own Cinnabons to enjoy and we will just have to go back to Orlando soon to try the real thing.

We have been lucky that we have managed to choose secluded spots for our mini days out. We have loved having big large ares of grass, woods and gardens to ourselves. We know this won't last forever so we are trying to enjoy it as much as we can.

Happy Fathers Day | Our Sunday Photo 25/52

Today is Fathers Day and its is a day that we can celebrate and appreciate all the Fathers, Dads, Stepdads, Grandads and Great Grandads. I know most of us appreciate the Dads in our lives every day but today is a day just for them. I know how lucky we are to have John in our lives. He is an amazing Dad to our boys and I couldn't wish for anyone better to take care of us. 
We are also thinking of all Dads out there who are not able to celebrate and enjoy today.

A New Normal | Our Sunday Photo 24/52

This was my view yesterday as I lay on the grass on what felt like the first normal day out we have had in months. We found a secluded spot away from everyone else giving us the chance to have a picnic, play frisbee, bat and ball and just have a chat and it was lovely.

A Lock For Lockdown | Our Sunday Photo 23/52

7 June 2020

I never thought we would be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in lockdown. John got me lots of lovely gifts but I think this was my favourite. The engraved lock says 'John & Michelle 10 Year Anniversary In Lockdown'. We managed to head out and pop the lock on our local waterfront alongside lots of other locks that have gathered there over the years. It will be fun to try and find it every time we visit in the future.

Splish Splash | Our Sunday Photo 22/52

With temperatures in the mid twenties today there is only one thing to do and that's get the pool out and have a nice day in the garden. We bought the pool at the beginning of lockdown and it's definitely been our best buy. It can easily fit all four of us in and it was a bargain at just £36. Unfortunately the price rocketed once the weather perked up which I was gutted about as wanted to buy another as a spare, in case this one burst with all the jumping and diving.

I have always wanted a Disney Loungefly back pack but I could never justify paying the money for one. A few weeks ago I walked in to the Disney Store and this gorgeous Loungefly Stitch backpack was just sat on the shelf reduced to just £40.

New York snowglobe
This snow globe is just a month short of being 20 years old. I bought it in New York in February 2000 and it has been sitting up in the loft for years but John brought it down recently and I remembered just how much I love it. The train moves around the bottom playing the song New York, New York and it reminds me just how much I love New York.

Today was my 'get up' morning with Little J and instead of just watching TV or playing on his iPad we had a lovely morning. We played lots of games, colouring and then he tried to teach me the rules of football. I still have no idea but it was lots of fun.

So after our garden being a home to a trampoline of some form for well over 12 years we made a decision to dismantle it yesterday. The boys haven't been on it for well over a year at least and would prefer to use the space for football. Little J got stuck in and helped remove all the springs with the hammer and really enjoyed getting involved.

Our Sunday Photo | The Endgame

22 films in 30 days and now we are done. Last night we completed our Marvel journey by going to the cinema to see Avengers | The Endgame. We laughed and cried then left the cinema feeling a little sad that it's all over. All the hype about Endgame convinced us to binge watch all the Marvel movies in chronological order and I'm so glad we did. I'm not quite sure how we managed to watch 22 2hour+ movies in such a short space of time but we did it and we have loved every minute.

Little J was invited to a party this weekend and one of the activities was to design your own t-shirt. I have never thought of doing anything like this with little J before but he absolutely loved it. His friends got involved too and they all created Fortnite t-shirts. Such a simple but fun activity.

After a very busy week in school and work, visiting a castle, a trampoline park and a huge play area, this weekend we are just chilling at home. It's so nice not to have any plans so we can just chill around the house doing nothing, I can't wait!

Our Sunday Photo | Happy To Be Back

This little one has been so happy going back to School in fact he actually looks forward it. We had a little bedtime conversation the other night about how he doesn't get to play as much now that he is in Year One but that's okay because he likes doing work. Let's hope he continues to enjoy it.
