We will get there one day baby

We will get there one day baby . 

We will achieve our dreams .

All the hard work will pay off.


We will enjoy it more having worked so hard for it.

We will have taught our kids hard work pays off.

Right now ,  Today is hard,  Tomorrow might be hard too.


But baby one day the hard work will pay off .

We will achieve our dreams




Sometimes just sometimes .

Its Saturday Morning .

Daddy is at work he has been since 4am.

Master Oak has been awake since 5am.

The girls have been up since 5.30am.

Its raining.

The dog needs a walk .

Im tired .


Daddy will be home around 3pm .

He will be exhausted.

He will need a shower and a nap.

He will fight between staying awake to play with the kids or having a nap to spend time with mummy later.


I need to go to shop .

We need Bread and Bananas.


My brother is down with his children .

We should visit them because we don’t see them very often .


Sometimes i would like it all to stop for a while.

Everyone just stay still .

A moment in time when chores are all done , everyone has had a full nights sleep and the daily pressures of being a parent stop.

Just sometimes I crave for a time before kids , a time that didn’t exist for Daddy and I.


For the briefest of moments ,  I wonder what it was like before .


Then I get up put all 4 pairs of shoes on and walk the dog.

So its been a long time .

So its been a long time since I last wrote anything down.


Master Oak is due to celebrate his second birthday very soon .


Miss Bella has just celebrated her 6th.

We’ve had the addition of Jarvis a crazy working cocker spaniel to our family.


Marcthebaker has started a new more family friendly job closer to home , which he loves .

We have found a Love for Bikes . Everyone that is expect for Miss Bella.

We spend most of ours days outside , as that’s where the boys love to be .

We also spend a lot of time in the Swimming pool as that’s where Miss Bella loves to be.

We have loved , lost and grown over the past 18 months.

Our plan for the next 18 months is to grow and love even more .
