Life Lately: December 2018

December was a really busy month for us, and we had a lot going on with the usual end of term Christmas school events, weekend outings , our 10th wedding anniversary, and of course Christmas and everything that involved.  We spent Christmas Day at home and had a very nice Christmas dinner – even if I do say so myself – and then had James’s… Continue Reading “Life Lately: December 2018”

Life Lately: October 2018

After a pretty quiet September, October was much busier with lots of days out and the half term holiday. As a family, we went to Drayton Manor, Twycross Zoo, Hatton Adventure World, and the Sea Life Centre – all within a few weeks!

The… Continue Reading “Life Lately: April 2018”

We did have a few outings – we visited Sea Life and their new piranha tank, and we went down to visit Sophie & her gorgeous little girl Isla for an afternoon too. The girls did 5 mornings of swimming lessons over half term and progressed… Continue Reading “Life Lately: February 2018”

Life Lately: January 2018

This year I’m going to incorporate my monthly minute long videos into Life Lately posts like this one… summarising what I’ve been reading, watching, playing, as well as what we’ve been doing as a family in the past month. We’ve had horrible weather so far this year, so we have been total homebody’s and have chosen to mostly hibernate indoors. The weather at the weekends… Continue Reading “Life Lately: January 2018”
