Fairies, Pirates and Playdates

  I don’t know about you but the half-term holiday just flew by here. Maybe something about having the Monday as a bank holiday. I just can’t believe we are now into the last 6 weeks of Seren’s Reception year! The clock is ticking…

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…

Sisters, April 2017

  April has all been about sister time what with the school holidays starting on the 1st April! Though I’ve noticed that Imogen has been a bit frustrated with having to share her home space and there is the usual bickering, they’ve mostly enjoyed…

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…

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…

  Grandad Graham took the girls and I on a bluebell hunt yesterday morning. We went to Gobions Wood in Brookmans Park (in between Potters Bar and Hatfield) which is apparently the best place near us to see a woodland floor carpeted with spring bluebells.…

Spring in Trent Country Park {Living Arrows 14/52}

We spent most of last Friday at Trent Country Park in Cockfosters, north London (at the very end of the Piccadilly line for those familiar with that!). It’s close to us and we go fairly often but it was lovely to visit in the spring…
