{walking} because I can’t run. The pain level in my back/ leg is manageable if I take painkillers regularly, but that leaves me without my exercise outlet. Fitbit tells me I walked for 82 minutes today though, and covered 4.7 miles, which seems an optimistic interpretation, but I’ll go with it. Got to help, right? […]

Saturday snippets 16 May 2015

{getting up} far far too early. Big had a cadet day which required her to be in the next town, after her paper round, for 8.15. Which was going to be tight. And so of course I woke up at 6, did that horrible flail oh no I’ve slept in, and then realised that actually […]

Saturday snippets 18 April 2015

{watching} swimming rather than a film. Not that I could see all that much of the swimming from my corner seat in the cafe. But it was enough to be there I hope. (Big reminded me that the first time she did Swimathon, 4 years ago, I cried.) {reading} Summer Secrets, the new Jane Green. […]

Saturday snippets 21 March 2015

{watching} Ribbit (Amazon pre order link). Full review to follow (with giveaway!) but the younger two kids really enjoyed this. Evening watching is currently Once upon a time on Netflix. Which is oddly gripping. Even if it is just fairly tales. #StreamTeam {reading} nothing right this second, but I read Only Ever Yours last night. […]

Saturday snippets 14 March 2015

{feeling} incredibly tired. So tired that I can’t quite see straight. (So why am I blogging instead of going to bed?) Because it’s snippets. Obviously. {enjoying} so very much experimenting with art and colour, drawing, shape and form. I’m looking at the world differently – colours are pinging out at me, and I’m spotting blossoms […]

Saturday snippets 7 March 2015

{drinking} a whole variety of different, calming teas. There’s a rather nice Green Tea with lemon and honey from Tetley, some glorious organic chamomile from Napiers Herbs, and a whole marvellous selection from Nothing but tea – I’m loving the Roiboos with a variety of different fruit flavours, particularly Raspberry. {enjoying} our first Kentwell outing […]

Saturday Snippets 28th February 2015

{watching} Pretty in Pink. Which wasn’t what we cued up for family film night. We’d found some Adam Sandler comedy that we thought would do nicely, but when the time came Small was too busy with his game, so he went off with the DS and the small children as his audience, and we watched […]

Saturday Snippets 21 February 2015

{watching} Lilo and Stitch for family film night. Which was apparently scary and mostly sad :/ Smallest burst into absolute sobs when she thought Stitch was being taken away, and had to be cuddled and persuaded to go on watching, and I don’t think is going to forgive us for some time. Oops. (I remembered […]

Saturday snippets 17 January 2015

{Watching} bits of the films daughter is watching with her friends for birthday film night. Including Dirty Dancing. Such a good film. {Eating} birthday party food. {Tidying} frantically so there would be enough room for 4 teen girls to sleep in the living room. {Enjoying} discussing books with C, one of the visiting teens. Tim […]

Saturday snippets 3 January 2015

{reading} Empire. {watching} Arrietty for our first #familyfilmnight of 2015. It was great, I could really get into animation of that quality. And for once, a film that held the entire family’s attention throughout, which is nothing short of miraculous really. It felt a lot closer to the books than other adaptations we’ve watched, even […]
