HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE RILEYS!!! We hope you had the most magical of times. We did. We had one of the loveliest Christmas's I think we've ever had. It was full to the brim with smiles, laughter, family, some questionable knock off Amaretto and lot's and lot's of love. Before you all start being … Continue reading Pox, Plague and Purple Legs
“Pretty good odds” to prevent the one armed man.
Hi! I hope everyone is well. My plea for 2023 to sort it's shit out hasn't really gone to plan so far, albeit things are beginning to look a bit brighter as we leave February behind (or F***y February as I have affectionately coined it this year). Just after our last update we received the … Continue reading “Pretty good odds” to prevent the one armed man.
Child In Need – no indeed.
Well, in the immortal words of Ozzy and Kelly Osborne - we're going through changes. Mainly the new giant chuff-off hole in the middle of our hallway: Giant chuff-off hole. So, you know, that's fun. Especially when you have a toddler who thinks he's in the SAS. Ant Middleton could learn a thing or two … Continue reading Child In Need – no indeed.
Teenage kicks and Positive Pants
Holy moly I've been slacking on the updates recently! I was convinced that my last post was in May... turns out it was in February and that is not the same as May... So, strap yourselves in for a catch up of epic proportions! Firstly, WE GOT ON A PLANE AND WENT ON HOLIDAY. For … Continue reading Teenage kicks and Positive Pants
60 degrees too far.
Hello, and 'Happy New Year'! (I'm aware that I'm about 37 days late with that one, but the sentiment is there) Since our last update, a fair bit has happened. Mainly, to our house... and to the retinas of our neighbours as they have had 3 months worth of pyjama clad cooking in the garage … Continue reading 60 degrees too far.
The sun always rises in the morning.
It's been a very VERY long time since our last update, and for that I (as head writer of this here site) must humbly apologise. The reason for this has been two fold: Life has been absolutely CHUFFING MENTAL of late In all honesty, I've really been struggling recently It all started towards the end … Continue reading The sun always rises in the morning.
Inspiration and Realisation.
If you follow our social media, you will have seen that T absolutely SMASHED his '28 Miles in 28 Days' challenge. He wobbled, walked and wheeled a mile every single day in February. He was out in every possible type of weather imaginable - wind (practically a hurricane one day), rain (biblical), sunshine (that one … Continue reading Inspiration and Realisation.
This one, is for Sir Tom.
Happy New Year!! ... and also, Merry Christmas? I hope yours was as lovely as ours. I managed to get one picture of the boys together... ...and Baby Riley legitimately looks like he wants to punch someone in the face. Look at that mush! I think maybe he is sick of me being his personal … Continue reading This one, is for Sir Tom.
Always together, never alone.
Evening all! I thought it was about time I wrote a bit of an update on how things are, and more specifically, how things are medically for T at the moment. It's been a funny old time, trying to navigate serious medical conditions, when no-one wants to see you for appointments. And, to be fair, … Continue reading Always together, never alone.
Ding Ding! Round 2020
Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any worse, BOOM! Lockdown 2.0, and Sean Connery taken from us (RIP Sir Sean). What a bloody crackers year this has become. Since our last update, we've had a fair few developments in old Family Riley. The first being that T has now started his new Secondary School! … Continue reading Ding Ding! Round 2020
