Local Adventures

Today we donned our wellies and raincoats and headed outside in search of adventure. Whilst I’m not a particularly fan of the rain and happy to curl up inside with a book when it pays us a visit, we were ready for a little dose of the good outdoors (and little guy cares not a jot what the weather’s doing).

So we headed to our local castle and played knights, tackled monsters, and found hidden treasures.

Merlin, our trusted steed, got a bit soggy, but he didn’t seem to mind.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend too.

Spent the day getting our home clean

As we’re having a party for Halloween


We’ve grown our pumpkins on our plot

For the little ones to pick their lot


We’ve got reapers, witches and the odd ghost

Ready to play the perfect hosts


Tables filled with all things sweet

Waiting for those who trick or treat


Hope you have the perfect day

And a little fun spookiness comes your way

Roaring good time…

Hubby was working today, so I had to drag myself out of bed and get on with looking after mini mister. Luckily, I must say, he was a well behaved little angel (phew).

I’d booked tickets for this show months ago, but now that the day arrived, the thought of being in a hot room with loads of bodies wasn’t the ideal way to recover from whatever viral thing had gotten hold of me all last week (not covid, tested many times).

However, it actually went really well, the story was great fun, and made really interactive and not too scary (thank goodness). Most importantly, my little guy had a roaring good time.


Took my little guy to the beach today for some Mama-son time. He really does make me laugh. Whilst drawing pics in the sand, we had the following conversation:

3YO: Mama, Can you draw a tractor?
Me: There you go.
3YO: Great job Mama, now draw a combine

For reference, this was my tractor sand skills:


I don’t normally post pictures of myself on here but this weekend I had the joy of becoming godmother to a very special little lady and I’m bursting with pride so I thought I would share my happiness with you all.

There’s a special place in my heart

Carved out just for you

It’s full of love and wonder

And dreams of all the things you’ll do

We are so proud to be by your side

Privileged to watch you grow

Although you are still so little

You’re already loved more than you know

Much love


Happy Mother’s Day

There’s two sides to every story and that’s certainly the case today. I could post and say I’m such a lucky Mama who has had loads of cuddles, some pretty flowers, cards and gifts from my OH and my special little guy (all of which is very true).πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Or I could say we’ve got a poorly snuggly little guy, had a night with lack of sleep, and a daddy who believes fresh air is the best treatment for all illnesses so dragged us to the allotment πŸ™ˆ.

Being a Mama is a 24/7 job, 365 days of the year, and I wouldn’t change it for the world (although I might skulk off for a long hot bubble bath and bit of Bridgerton later tonight whilst the boys watch Blaze 😁).

So, big happy mothers day to all the mama’s out there, even if your day didn’t entirely go to plan. ❀❀❀

Living it large

Life in London was busy but brilliant (more on that to follow when I get some time). However, as much as I love a holiday (and I really do), coming home is an equally wonderful feeling. ❀️

That being said, not 24hrs after crossing our threshold a sickness bug took over the house and tortured each family member one by one for a 48 hour stint.

Thankfully we got rid of it just in time to celebrate tiny man’s birthday. So it’s been a long weekend of farms, exotic animals, parties, friends, families, balloons, cake and more.

Life is full of ups and downs. πŸ™ƒπŸ₯³ Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend. KL
