April 10, 2019 admin 3

Over the Easter holidays the weather has definitely been good to us and as a result we have started making some progress on our garden makeover, which admittedly was meant to happen two years ago, but better late than never. The original plans have changed a bit and we have now decided to dig up some of the raised patio bit and extend the grass and as the kids are getting older we are going […]

How to get the most out of your trip to the Sea Life Blackpool

July 25, 2018 admin 0

Not everyone that reads this blog will know this but I actually grew up in Blackpool and so did my husband, we lived there until we were 18 and then moved to Chester where we have stayed every since. Growing up in Blackpool meant that we had all the attractions on our doorstep but as locals we were able to visit out of season and avoid the crowds which was always a little bonus. One […]

Summer wine recommendations

June 7, 2018 admin 0

Well I doubt this will come as a surprise but I love wine. I never used to, but over the last couple of years it has been my drink of choice more and more and over the last 12 months I have even started to enjoy a glass or red which prior to that I could never understand why anyone drank the stuff. I’m not overly fussy with my wine but I do tent to […]

What I’m really doing when I say I’m working

February 5, 2018 admin 6

It’s February, it’s raining, it’s cold and I’m bored. I am sat in my office trying to find some inspiration to write a wonderfully witty post about my children or a heart felt post that will resonated with my readers but nothing is happening. Instead I find myself dreaming of a holiday some place warm and the map behind me is not helping because I just keep looking at all the places we haven’t been […]

Our summer memories

September 4, 2017 admin 0

On the eve of big’un returning to school and the eve, eve, of the tiddler starting school I am sat here reflecting on our summer together. Unlike the majority of parents I am in a very fortunate position as a teacher that I can have most of the summer off with my boys and that is something that I am deeply grateful for as it hasn’t always been the case but this year I have […]

Our summer must haves

August 15, 2017 admin 0

It can be hard to keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays, it can be even harder to ungrip their chubby little fingers from the many electronic devises they seem to have stashed all over the house. So I though I would share some of our favourite toys and activities that have kept the children entertained and away from technology these holidays. The Pedal Racer From the moment this arrived both boys were eager […]

My Bikini Wish list

June 8, 2015 admin 0

Summer is just around the corner and like most people I have started to search for Bikinis ready for my holidays (that we are yet to book). When it comes to bikinis I am very self conscious having had two children but for me a swimsuit makes me look even worse so I generally opt for bikinis (with shorts, sarongs or simply my towel over the top). I always start looking for bikinis early on as I […]
