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
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?
