Little Moments is where I reflect on all of the little things that have made me happy, thankful or inspired that week. I hope that I will also inspire you to do the same…
It’s been a while since I’ve shared my little moments, so it’s definitely time for a little catch up. The last couple of weeks have been really busy with the half term holiday, a visit to Dorset and running a half marathon!
So here are my little moments for the last few weeks:
Weekend in Dorset
We had a wonderful few days in Dorset, visiting my parents back in my hometown. The weather was glorious and we made some lovely memories at the beach and the local area. I barely checked my phone the whole time we were there. It was lovely to catch up with my parents and spend time as a family.
Paddling at Portland
Especially memorable on our trip was a visit to the beach at Portland where the kids paddled for ages. The water was so shallow, we waded out to a bank of sand and scooped water into buckets. The kids were in their element!
Fun in the woods
We had a fun walk in the woods on our last day in Dorset. We found some little shelters that had been made there and the kids loved hiding out!
I ran a half marathon! I’d been training as much as I could around the kids, (it’s so hard to fit exercise in as a mum isn’t it?) but was a little nervous. I made it round and felt so proud of my achievement afterwards! I have run half marathons before, but not for about 8 years, so this was a good goal met!
I’ve had another jump in the Tots 100 rankings! This might not mean much if you are not in the blogging world, but Tots 100 is basically a ranking system of over 10,000 parenting bloggers. I’ve gone up to #369 which I’m very pleased about. Rankings are definitely not everything. But I have reached a point where I do feel like I need a bit of a boost – this was it!
Date with the hubby
We literally just went for a couple of drinks, but it was lovely to go out just me and the hubby. It’s so hard to get out as a couple when you are parents. But just an evening together and we chatted away and felt so much better for it. You need that time without the kids – just now and again. Hoping for a few more date nights again soon!
It’s a quiet weekend for us and hopefully an outing out on the bikes. Have you had a good week? What are you up to in the next week?
