Jumping into Spring

  Wahoo, first day of spring! And we’ve woken up to rain boo. Good for the garden I suppose. We did get out yesterday and the girls had a lot of fun in our friends’ garden bouncing on the trampoline. I love a trampoline…

Falling in love with the llamas at Capel Manor

We spent a day at Capel Manor Gardens with friends last week. I’ve mentioned it a lot on here – it’s a local horticultural college that’s pretty interesting to visit too – and we have membership. Last time we visited we were lucky to…

Beach afternoon and silly faces

After a super busy week last week when my sister and new baby nephew came to stay, we escaped to the south coast for a night over the weekend. Some of our friends were camping in West Wittering but we weren’t brave enough for…

Blowing dandelions

I took the girls to a birthday party yesterday and spent a lot of outside finding / chasing Imogen. Fortunately, Seren was quite happy to get on with being at the party inside. Imogen just likes to be free, see an open door and…

End of the Nursery Year (and more Chicken Pox)

Last week was a really weird week. We’d just got back from our lovely holiday, Imogen succumbed to the Chicken Pox bang on 14 days after Seren got it, Andy was off work, we had a couple of days when it was really too hot…

Felbrigg Hall

Well, we are back in Pox Land this week, the toddler now has Chicken Pox. Poor thing is very hot and bothered! We did manage a lovely – illness free – week in Norfolk though in between. On our way back home, we stopped…

Chicken Pox!

Chicken Pox finally hit here last week. Just the 4 year old so far but I’m expecting (and hoping) the 2 year old will get it in the next couple of weeks too. Seren has avoided it several times over the past 3 years…

Summer Fete

We went to a summer fete on Saturday that was a lot of fun (apart from the huge tantrums that Imogen had because she had to wait to go on the bouncy castles!). She had her first pony ride, first face-painting (cannot believe how…

Sunglasses and BBQs

We were under a bit of a black cloud this weekend, both with the EU Referendum fall out and quite literally with some rain showers on Saturday. But, we still managed to don our shades and get out and have fun with friends. On…

London’s Royal Greenwich Park

We went to see In the Night Garden Live in Blackheath, south London at the weekend (review coming soon). Before the show and afterwards we had a run (literally for the little ones) around Greenwich Park. I used to go there a lot when I…

An Afternoon at Polesden Lacey, Dorking, Surrey

The girls and I drove round the M25 on Saturday to spend the afternoon at Polesden Lacey – a National Trust place just outside of Dorking, Surrey. The house is a grand Edwardian country retreat and where the future King George VI and the…

May Day Bank Holiday Weekend

We’ve had a pretty relaxing May bank holiday weekend getting stuff done around the house and garden. How lovely was Saturday and Sunday’s sunshine?   We picnicked. We hunted for ants, worms, snails and spiders. We washed the outdoor toys. We built a den…

Getting muddy in the park

One of many upsides to the lovely sunny spring weather, is easy fun hanging out in the park. In the winter, socialising with a super energetic toddler means home-based playdates, the dreaded soft play or the one cafe where I’m not too embarrassed to take…
