I took a lot of the summer away from my keyboard; partly to enjoy the 6 weeks holiday with the kids, and partly because I really needed a break. I was working on a big project that finally finished with just days to go until the school holidays, and it really stressed me out – I needed to step away from a while; just sitting… Continue Reading “Life Lately: July & August 2018”
May began with Georgie turning 7, and me in a state of slight shock that I’ve now been a parent for seven years. It’s amazing how fast time flows by, I still remember her as a tiny baby, as an inquisitive toddler, and a shy pre-schooler. Now, our Georgiana is a lovely little girl – well on her way to being a “big girl”. She… Continue Reading “Life Lately: May 2018”
March was a busy month for us with lots to do despite most of us coming down with a bug or two during the month and all of us ending the month with a nasty heavy cold (thanks for sharing your bugs, kids). Oh, and I died my hair bright pink for charity.… Continue Reading “Life Lately: March 2018”
This is our Month in a Minute for December 2017! Christmas was fun even if it didn’t go to plan… and we had snow before and after Christmas! Lots and lots of snow. Granny has two litters of Norwich Terrier puppies the girls have been enjoying playing with, and we enjoyed lots of Lego and gaming fun.
The year is nearly over and I’ve finally done my November in a Minute video (what can I say, the last month has been hectic and I lost over a week to tonsillitis, which made me feel very sorry for myself indeed).… Continue Reading “November in a Minute (2017)”
I sat down earlier this week to do my seriously overdue November in a Minute and realised that in all the crazy busy-ness of November I didn’t get round to October… so here it is: We had a busy month in October – dancing with Ashley Banjo, into the city to see the bears, soft play with family, Disney on Ice, and a busy half… Continue Reading “October in a Minute (2017)”
My very lucky girls received a surprise parcel from Warner Bros yesterday full of Scooby Doo goodies to celebrate Halloween! They had no idea what was in the parcel other than the one word hint I gave them – ‘toys’ – and as unboxing fans they were excited to film their own.… Continue Reading “Scooby Doo Surprises!”
September was a tough month for us, but there were some good moments in between the lows! We were still in Cornwall right at the start of the month, and enjoyed at day at the Hidden Valley. Lydia started school and has been loving every second, the girls have been enjoying conker hunting, and we’ve had some quiet moments at home too.
August was crazy busy for us. I took the month off work and we had some great days out, a camping trip to Wales, and a visit to my parents in Cornwall. In between all of that we were really busy DIY-ing like mad, transforming the spare room into my super lovely new office which I will be blogging (and vlogging!) about very soon. I… Continue Reading “August in a Minute (2017)”
July was pretty busy for us with all of the end-of-term craziness, but we did manage to squeeze in some fun. Lydia and I had some fun on our last few days/half days of time home alone, with walks to the park and other outings. We had a trip to meet an Octonaut at the Sea Life Centre, my birthday, a trip to the Thinktank… Continue Reading “July in a Minute (2017)”
We had a busy month in June, with the end of our Felixstowe trip, school and village festivals, open farm sunday, a trip back in time to see the dinosaurs, and more. SaveSave
Our Month in a Minute for May… Georgie’s birthday was in May, we spent time with friends, we had great fun at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and had a lovely holiday by the seaside. Oh, and I rescued a hedgehog!
Our April: family time, egg hunts, and animals! We had a good two week break this Easter, and in particular had a busy few days over the Easter weekend, with time spent with family, lots of Easter egg hunting, and a lovely day out at the farm. On Easter Saturday we headed to Packwood House which is one of our closest National Trust properties. Every… Continue Reading “April in a Minute (2017)”
