In the latest of my little blog series talking about quotes I love is this one.
I like it because quite simply it sums up why I blog.
To record our life together. As a family of four.
Our simple, ordinary life.
Gone are the expensive holidays to Barbados and Miami, gone are the posh dinner’s out, and gone is the drinking in trendy bars until it’s almost time to get up.
Instead holidays are spent in little cottages near Scarborough, dinners are eaten at Pizza Express and my idea of a good drink is a Diet Coke and reading my book by the fire.
But this is our life. Our slightly boring, but happy life.
The up’s and down’s, the good days, the not so good days, and the ‘I want to tear my hair out days.’
The tantrums, the fight’s, the loving moments and the milestones.
It’s about learning, growing and above all loving as a family of four.
It’s about putting on our wellies, going out in the cold and miserable weather to jump in the sea, and it’s about not worrying if Mads gets her brand new clothes filthy. It’s about watching her little eyes light up as she jumps in and out of rock pools.
It’s about making unextraordinary moments memories for us to treasure when our little girls are all grown up.
And hopefully that they will treasure too.
