Rainy Bank Holiday Monday

Well it’s Bank Holiday Monday so it had to rain right? I’m still thinking how lucky we were with the summery weather a few weeks ago and the gardens probably need some rain. We had planned to walk from my inlaws house to Forty…

Spring at Capel Manor Gardens

  I’ve written about Capel Manor Gardens a few times. It’s one of the loveliest days out to be had in our neck of the woods and it’s 5 year old Seren’s “happy place”. We renewed our family membership last week and friends joined us…

Sunshine, splashing and London’s Ice Cream Farm

  I feel like we’ve well and truly started summer over the last few days! Picnics, building sandcastles, BBQs, paddling pool, suncream, sunhats and sandals on! Which all feels a bit strange given we haven’t even had Easter yet. Yesterday, we popped to the…

Half Term Trip Away to Yorkshire

We managed to get away to for a little holiday last week. We don’t go away much but when half-term meets your big birthday (4-0 eeeeeek) then it would be rude not to? I quite fancied cosying up with the family, a lovely bath…

Frosty Playground Trip

As usual with January, I’m not taking many photos on these dark, dingy days but did manage to get my camera out last weekend. We were supposed to be going on a bit of an adventure but it took us SO LONG to get…

A Frosty Winter Walk

  Whilst the big ones (Andy and I) would have been very happy with a couple of pyjama days last week – the little ones need to be exercised at least once a day. We headed out to some local places we don’t get to…

2016 In Review

  There’s an oft told saying that when it comes to parenting little ones – the hours are long (though the hours asleep are never long enough) but the years are short. 2016 has flown by again, time has passed so quickly in a…
