A blogging break!

As you have probably already guessed I am in the process of taking a small blogging break. I don't think I have the strength to go into things right now but just to say we've been going through some very heartbreaking times within the family. Things are very slowly starting to turn in the right direction now. I have to say a very big and special thank you to the wonderful TM readers who sent their loving vibes, lit candles and held my family in their thoughts :)

Hope to be back with happy stories to tell soon but for now I'll post a few pics of our smiley boy :)

To be a mother...

I've been feeling a little exhausted and very emotionally drained just lately. There is so much going on in my life right now, that I just cant focus on the positive and I'm struggling to hear the healing words I'm trying to tell myself. But then I hold the thought of what it is to be a mama and hold my children close to my heart and slowly I realise that nothing else matters and I am smiling again.

Even Toby joined in the fun.
Our fab pumpkins, carved by the very artistic warren :)

enjoying our sahmain fire :)

We had a fire and lots of fun with sparklers.

Charlie loved his first sparkler!

Birthday pics....

The birthday boy opening his presents. He got books, a wooden castle, wooden pirate ship, dressing up clothes, cars, bulldozers and lots and lots of birthday hugs :)

Here is 'knight charlie', he loves his dressing up outfit and we enjoyed playing knights and dragons for hours. We put a big purple blanket over us and then knight charlie rides of through the forests on his dragon. I supose this could be seen as a 'war' toy but not in our house it isnt, because charlie uses so much wonderful imagination and the whole family plays together in charlies fantastic world.....

This was the highlight of charlies birthday....blowing out his candles, all he has talked excitedly for weeks was how he couldnt wait to blow his candles!
