Not Another Bug

Boo isn’t going to pre-school again now until the new year. If you’re thinking, that’s early for them to break up, no, no, no, they break up on 20th December. I just don’t want her to go in again until after Christmas. Why? Illnesses. They are absolutely rife. It seems that as soon as the …

#ElfTakeover Week 1

So he’s here! It took around a week for him to arrive, and I was ridiculously excited. I’d been pinning plenty of ideas, the Husband was coming home each day telling me he’d had another idea, so it’d be fair to say it was already shaping up to be one of those kids traditions that …

We Embraced The Season

I was a fair weather kinda girl. I love my flip flops, vests and summery skirts and I’d make the most of every last drop of sunshine. As soon as the flip flops have to be stowed and the boots or Converse reappear, you’ll not see me outside until spring! Or that was the case, …

Before You Were Born Meme

I’ve been tagged by the lovely MamaMummyMum in this ‘Before you were born’ meme. It took me a few moments to actually recall such a time that we were without our children, but given that we were together for over a decade before we decided to start a family, we should have plenty of memories …

As Autumn Ends…

We’ve absolutely loved autumn here this year. I feel like it’s the first time that I’ve really embraced the changing of the season, as I’m definitely a warm weather kind of woman, and I can get annoyed when the sunshine leaves me! But, we’ve got out and enjoyed foraging for blackberries, leaf hunts, created some …
