Happy New Year (and a week)! Perhaps against the better judgement of a local (which we technically can’t quite class ourselves as yet) we decided to see in the New Year at Disneyland Resort. This is not to be confused with Walt Disney World in Florida, that we are rather […]

A Magical New Year

I was reading a blog post by jbmumofone¬†and it made me start to cry. (Gosh I am emotional this week!) anyway it really resonated with me, such a lovely way of recording simple memories that I am likely to forget and that T Lloyd won’t remember either. Technology has so […]

A letter to 1 year old you

Usually this sentence has the whole of Team Lloyd dancing in the halls with our Christmas Jumpers on and loudly singing along to The Buble. But this year I have to say all it’s done is made me madly homesick. We are still waiting for the container to catch up […]

First Day of Christmas

There are loads of posts I need to write, and want to write for that matter, but having been here for 4 weeks now I feel there are some important pieces of wisdom Team Lloyd should be sharing with other Brits who might make this rather large transatlantic move 1. […]

As I sit here today, I know it’s going to be a long while before you all get to read this. But I really think it is important to write and well I really want a blog diary of the next 9 months. You see even today I am further […]

The Biggest Secret of All

I have always been one for enjoying saying goodbye to one year and welcoming the clean slate of a new one. Saying goodbye to 2012 was both bitter and difficult yet we entered 2013 hoping for a calm and peaceful year. We had a year just as we hoped with […]

New Beginnings

*Waves* Gosh it has been a while hasn’t it? I don’t really have any excuses why I haven’t blogged, I guess sometimes you can lose your mojo. And I just haven’t had the time to go searching for it. However like many many bloggers this weekend I was at BritmumsLive […]

Farewell Team Lloyd Towers

This Bank Holiday I¬†was lucky enough to be invited to be #MorrisonsMum, which I think is a great excuse for posting a recipe! We actually use Morrisons on a weekly basis particularly for their delicious fresh fruit – B Lloyd LOVES having a fresh fruit salad for snack-time at school! […]
