This may seem like an odd title for a post, considering that we’ve been in New Brunswick for almost a year. To be honest there was always a little part of me that hoped and prayed that a solution to our problems in Sydney Mines would be found. That one beautiful, sunny morning the kids and I would pack up …

So, last year we spent a small fortune on heating – didn’t we all? This year, we decided to do things a little differently. So we purchased this nifty little pellet stove and a steep reduction price. However, it was pretty clear that we would not be able to heat our whole, rather large, house with one little unit. We …

A couple of months ago, my daughter spent her own money on a beautiful sorceress costume that included a pointed hat with a long flowing veil that she loved. She knew well that we would not be celebrating Halloween this year, but wanted to use her money to buy a costume nonetheless. She took her time and looked at all …

When I told you about the loss of our sweet Penny, the boxer, I mentioned that I’d been meaning to introduce you to her for quite a while but never just got around to it because I figured there’d be all the time in the world – there wasn’t. Well, we actually ended up getting a new dog not all …

I wanted to make a post for mental health week a little while back, but I didn’t do it. I didn’t feel like I had the words to describe what I go through and how my mind/emotions work and how dependent I feel on the input of others to feel like I am anything . I just couldn’t go there. …

I just wanted to let you know that I value your imput, so when you told me to share a picture of your AC/DC beer on my blog, I did. I do not know if it will generate many views, but you are right in that I should just post whatever I want on my blog and not worry too …

Doesn’t the time fly? My beautiful little girl, you have matured so much in the last year. You are an excellent big sister to Ruadhan and he loves doing things with you. Liam loves you, too, just not so much when you are driving him crazy! I love seeing the two of you reading together and sharing ideas. You have …

I’ve been meaning to write a post to introduce you to our darling puppy, Penny. I’d featured her in a few of my Friday Fave Fives, because she brought a whole lot of sunshine into my life. I felt that she deserved her own post, though, but I thought that I’d have lots of time to write it. On this …

So, I was sitting here this afternoon nursing Ruadhán and of course he was popping on and off again and chatting with me. This is how it went. Ruadhán: Mum, I have golden tooth. Me: Oh, yeah? Ruadhán: Yeah, in my mouth. Can I see your teeth? Opening my mouth and showing off my amalgam fillings. Ruadhán: Oh, Mum, you …

Well, up until last Friday, we’d never dealt with any significant injury in our house. Ten years (that’s 21 years of living between the three kids) and no stitches, no sprains, not broken bones. Sadly, our luck ended there. Last Friday, despite my better judgement, I decided to take the children into the field behind our house to fly kits. …
