Our March Round-Up

  • April 2, 2017

Another month has been and gone and we’re into the second quarter of the year already! I don’t mind the first few months going so quickly, I’m not a fan of the dark mornings and cold weather at all.

When I write my monthly round-ups it always surprises me how much we’ve packed in. We only get 2 days off together a week and try to make the most of it.

Here’s what we got up to in March…

Our March Round-Up

Our March Round-Up | Digital Motherhood

At the start of March was World Book day, one of most mums worst nightmares! Little H’s school decided to make parent’s lives even harder by setting a Roald Dahl theme for the day. This put paid to my suggestion of Hermione using the cape we bought at Universal last year! Little H only knows of The BFG and The Giraffe, The Pelly & Me and decided she wanted to go as the giraffe. So I made a giraffe costume. I don’t think it was too bad considering I don’t sew, and she was pleased to be the only giraffe at school.

We took advantage of our Tesco Clubcard vouchers and used them on a visit to Cheddar Gorge in Somerset. It was our first visit as a family, and we had a great day out. You can read my blog post about it here if you haven’t already.

The weather got a bit nicer in March and we got a few days of sunshine as Spring arrived. Little H and I managed a few visits to the park after school and it was lovely to sit out in the sun rather than being cooped up at home.

Nothing to do with family time, but in March I got to visit Google’s office in London with work. It was very cool to get some inside info and we got a little walk around London afterwards.

I collaborated with Inspired Wallpapers last month to give our spare room a makeover and turn it into an office. If you missed part 1 you can see it here, hopefully part 2 will be coming very soon!

We had 2 weekends in a row of getting together with the family for Sunday lunch. First on my nieces’s second birthday and the second on Mother’s Day. It’s always nice to get everyone together, and especially for Little H to see her 2  cousins who she gets on with really well.

At the end of March we were invited to a bushcraft open day in Hatfield at Camp Wilderness. We had a great time building campfires, learning about camouflage and generally having a good time in the great outdoors. You can read all about it here.

Once again we had a fun and busy month. We haven’t got any plans for April yet but hopefully we’ll have lots more fun and the weather will stay nice.

Hope you all had a good March, what did you get up to?

    Wow, it sure sounds like you managed to fit a lot in! My son’s nursery didn’t set a theme for World Book Day thankfully, so he went as Paddington Bear. It was his first proper World Book Day, and I wasn’t yet ready to make a costume – Sainsbury’s saved us!
    I remember going to Cheddar Gorge when I was on holiday years ago. Such a stunning place, although I can get quite claustrophobic so didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have done. Still somewhere I would love to return to though.

    What a fantastic month you’ve had! This was our first ever World Book Day at my Son’s pre-school and we loved it. Luckily we didn’t have to think too hard about what he had to wear as the whole school dressed up as Where’s Wally, we loved it!

    Sounds busy! The best thing about March for me was actually getting a few really nice days so we could get out and play in the sunshine – unfortunately, Glasgow has returned to its normal dark, grey self. #FamilyFun

    I always find it pretty amazing how much you can fit into a month without trying! Nice and busy, I like you are pretty happy about the nicer weather hitting us, it’s making life a bit easier! Getting to tour google would be pretty cool!!

    It’s great to stand out from the crowd. I really like the giraffe costume. Reads like you’ve done lots of other lovely things too including sharing the Hatfield Woods experience with us. #FamilyFun
