A Spring Scoot

We had a morning with absolutely nothing on our agenda, so as the sun was shining, we decided to get outside. Boo hasn’t been on her scooter for ages. No reason, we just sort of forgot about it, so when remembered, we had to get it out! With Little Man happily in his pushchair and …

Scarecrow Hunting!

At the weekend, we decided to visit Tatton Park, another wonderful venue in our National Trust handbook. There was a scarecrow festival on, with lots of them dotted around to search out, so Boo was delighted! It was absolutely tipping it down, but it was nice to get out and explore, and the children enjoyed the many …

It was a lovely weekend, and Boo hasn’t stopped asking if we can go back there and stay again since! My brother obviously knows his niece, as he had a great afternoon planned for us, which involved …

Boo and Poo

Yep, that’s the title that I’m going with. Now, I’m hoping that you’ll tell me that I’m not alone here, and this is perfectly normal, but Boo really finds poo funny. She’s 4 – standard behaviour, right?! Take her jokes. She’s going through that really sweet stage of wanting to tell jokes and making them …
