This July will mark 10 years since we bought this house. In those ten years, its seen some changes, a wedding,  3 babies being brought home, a dog and cat. Over time we have changed bits of the house – like retiling the downstairs bathroom, and replacing our kitchen (still my favourite room in the house).

Over the 10 years we have been…

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran   I can’t believe we are already in 2018.

This year I’m aiming to participate in both Living Arrows and The Ordinary Moments, as when I was writing up all about our year last year, these posts captured both the…
