This is a shot from my morning stroll in the park, 7am and it was glorious already. The sun was beaming down towards me, the dew was covering the carpet of grass and the birds were singing in the oak trees all around me. It was a lovely moment. It is nice to have some mindful moments, especially after such a horrible start to the week for Manchester and the busy lives we all have.
You may have seen on my social media accounts this morning, this is one of the many questions that my little Noah asked me when we turned on the news. The Manchester arena explosion at an Ariana Grande concert. Men, women and children hurt or worse. Not only did Daddy and I react, like every other family I suspect, in shock. So did Noah.
Today has been an odd day, it started off very emotional and little Noah was devastated by the news of the explosion. I then found that I just couldn’t concentrate at work today – I had a lot of paperwork to do too. Then I sorted the garden out when I got home with the kiddies. Isla and Noah enjoyed playing with the water and Barbies and Super Heroes. It was a nice evening in the sunshine.
Today was a busy one, but a calm busy one. Does that make sense? Noah had beavers, where he had to share some photos that he’d taken. And Isla had great fun being nosey when we went to pick him up. I sneaked in on them playing- I love hearing their imaginations whirring.
Every mother knows that raising kids on a healthy balanced diet with just the right amount of exercise, is an absolute must. As your child grows, they require a balanced and healthy diet of proteins, carbohydrates, fruit, vegetables, milk/dairy etc. to ensure that their development is on track and they have the best chance in life to be healthy.
Today, no, this entire weekend has been so stressful. I am not sure if its a combination of tiredness from all four Constants. Or if it is just the little ones. Noah has been extremely hard work this weekend. Emotional, grumpy, rude, irritating and just not himself. I feel absolutely worn out. I managed to get some nice photos of them. I had to use games and mathematical sums to chill them out for long enough to snap away! Lets hope a nice big sleep makes a difference for tomorrow.
Welcome to 2017’s collection of #SilentSunday photos; today is 21 May 2017. Todays photo is from in the week, I managed to capture both the dogs looking at me at the same time.

I also love your comments, so a big thank you to everyone who joined in. Don’t forget to grab the badge and join in below…
This photo sums up the day, entirely! Rain + bored children + restless Daddy = very stressful day! Daddy wanted to get out with the children, he managed to before the rain kicked in at lunchtime. Everyone seemed tired today. Noah cried about everything bless him. Its horrible when you are so tired you are really emotional about everything. It took a lot of patience to get through the day.
When you have a family, there is always going to be some kind of special day that needs planning for. It could be the birth of a child in the family, a Christening, a Confirmation, a birthday, a wedding and even a retirement party for a parent that needs to be celebrated. While many families plan parties at major venues, others either don’t have the financial ability to do so, or they prefer more informal gatherings at home where everyone can just come as they are, relax and enjoy. In order to make that day more intimate, why not add a personal touch?
