Month: September 2013

A Ramble and a Crumble

We all went off for a stroll in our local park at the weekend. It was a glorious autumn day, so we wanted to get out into the sunshine, and enjoy being surrounded by nature.┬áBoo had her trusty backpack, ready to fill to the brim with treasures that she found …

Childhood Memories

I spent a little time getting lost in Pinterest the other day (as can so easily happen), as I was creating a board full of My Childhood memories. With toys, music and TV programmes flooding into my mind – The Flumps anyone? – I was back there again. I was …

A Moment’s Peace

Last weekend saw us taking the children shopping. They are usually pretty good round the shops, but understandably, do get a bit bored. We went to a retail park that we’d never be to before, and got a little lost trying to find it, queued to get into the car …

Readings Read – September

Well, another month is drawing to a close, and we’ve been reading plenty here, as per usual! These have been our favourite books this month: Little Man The Tickle Book by Ian Whybrow & Axel Scheffler He gets so excited by this one! He loves lift the flap, pop-up, peepo, …

Project Garden Update 25th September

This week we have been getting out there and tidying it up a bit and just enjoying it in this final burst of good weather. Boo and I have planted lots of alium bulbs at the weekend, which I will be eagerly looking out for in the spring. Aliums were …

A Beautiful Language

As I was mooching about in the world of Stumbleupon the other day, I paused when I found this article. 117 Most Beautiful Words in the English Language. Do you know, I sat there and read though each one, and I cannot disagree with the writer, they are beautiful words. …

Boo Captures The Colour

When I saw that Travel Supermarket were running a children’s photography competition, Kids Capture the Colour, in conjuction with Venture Photography, I knew that Boo would want to get involved. She may be only 3, but she enjoys anything creative and if there are gadgets involved, then that’s even better! …

Little Man Has Shoes! No Easy Task….

We woke today knowing that it’d be an important day for Little Man, a milestone. It was time to buy him his first pair of shoes. He’s been taking more and more steps lately, and so a shoe shopping trip was in our sights. His lovely auntie and uncle gave …

Stationery Love 4

I’ve not shared a Stationery Love post recently, which means I’ve spent ages looking at gorgeous stationery this time around and I got a little lost looking (time well-spent, of course!) So, to save you having to mooch about, too, here are some of my favourite finds… I discovered a …

An Hour Well Spent

In the last week, we’ve been to a new soft play centre (very popular with both the children and me!), our usual dance class, and Boo’s had her two days at preschool. I didn’t think we could fit a bit of fresh air and the great outdoors into the week, …

10 Gorgeous Christmas Gifts For Children

As regular readers will know, it was Little Man’s first birthday a couple of weeks ago, and it’ll be Boo’s fourth birthday next month. As any weirdly organised parent does, I tend to compile a list of gift ideas for them throughout the year, which allows me to put quite …

Clothes Shopping Has Changed

I didn’t give loads of thought to clothes buying before motherhood. I suppose the main reason was that I had a good income, so I bought what I wanted, when I wanted it. I’ve never really been a designer wearer, just the odd piece, I was always more likely to …

We’ve Thomas the Tank’d Our Table

We have an Ikea Lack table in Boo and Little Man’s playroom that has started to get a little battered and chipped. It’s served it’s time well, so I’m not complaining. I’m actually surprised it’s still looking as good as it is, the punishments it’s taken over the last couple …

Trolley Love

Whenever we go to a supermarket now, Boo likes to sit in the trolley with Little Man. She used to love being free to look at (and grab) everything, but the lure of being in there with her brother must be too tempting! This is very handy for me, as …

Thank You, Twitter

  Dear Twitter, Since you came into my life, you have given me so much. I felt it was about time that I thanked you for it and shared all that you have done. For the purposes of this letter, I will overlook the time that you may have (most …
