What we did in November

  • December 1, 2018

Well here we are in December – how did that happen? I’m sure 5 minutes ago we were enjoying that amazing summer?! It’s nearly Christmas, though it’ll still be a few weeks before I get in the Christmas spirit. We have a few fun things planned for December though so I’m sure I’ll be feeling festive very soon. I can’t really remember what we did in November, it felt like >>

What We Did in October

What we did in October

Well, that’s it, we’re into November which means it’s basically a countdown to Christmas now. I’m not quite ready to embrace Christmas though, I don’t start to feel Christmassy until December so for now I think we’ll still enjoy the Autumn and getting out and about before it gets too cold. Here’s a little look at what we did in October… Birthday My birthday is at the start of October >>

What We Did In September

  • October 1, 2018
Longleat Safari Park

Wow September just flew by didn’t it! I’m not sure if it was the busyness of back to school and the normal routine, but the month passed by before we knew it. I can’t believe it’s already October and we’re in the last quarter of the year. I’m not particularly happy about it as I’m a summer girl, I hate the cold and the rain with a passion, so this >>

What We Did In August

What we did in August

I thought I’d start up my monthly round-up again to let you all know what we’ve been up to and give a little bit of insight into our lives. August was busy as we were on holiday for the first part. As soon as we got back it was straight back to work and we’ve been juggling summer holiday childcare for the last couple of weeks. I can’t believe the >>

Snow, Extreme Reading & Welly Boots #LittleLoves

  • March 2, 2018

This week has mainly been about the snow – we never ever get snow down here in Poole but we’ve had more than I’ve seen in years! On Thursday the school opened with them rescheduling lessons so that the kids could play outside. They closed at lunchtime though and all day on Friday, so we had a day at home with me working from the comfort of the sofa. We >>

November’s Round-up

  • December 1, 2017

How are we nearly at Christmas already?! Can’t quite believe I’m doing November’s round-up, only one more left this year! November was quite a quiet month for us, with the expense and madness of Christmas on the way we had some quiet weekends. November obviously started off with Guy Fawkes night and we went to a pub near the New Forest as we have done for the last few years. They >>

October’s Round-up

  • November 3, 2017

Where on earth is this year disappearing to? November already! October for us involved bike riding, den building, Disney on Ice, retro computer games and pumpkins. Find out more in October’s round-up… My birthday was at the start of October and once again it was my 21st (!). We had a lovely pub lunch at the weekend and my lovely little family spoilt me with some nice presents. I even took >>

September’s Round-up

  • October 2, 2017

Another month down and we’re heading scarily close to Christmas, which is something I hate thinking about until late November. I’m still sad that the summer has gone (if you can call July & August in the UK “summer”) but we had another fun month in September though it was a bit quieter than recent months. The main reason for this was that it was obviously back to school for >>

August’s Round Up

  • September 1, 2017

Well, that summer holidays went quickly didn’t it! It only feels like 5 minutes ago the kids were breaking up from school, and now here we are in September. We’ve had a busy month as usual. I’ve still had to work for most of the school holidays but have managed a few days off here and there. We’ve made sure that we’ve stayed busy at the weekends to make up >>

July’s Round-Up

  • August 8, 2017

I’m a bit late with my round-up for last month as we’ve just got back from holiday. I couldn’t really remember what we did before we jetted off, so it’s nice to have a little reminder. July’s Round-Up July started off by us getting our first National Trust passes – how grown up are we?! Our first visit was to Mottisfont Abbey in Romsey, a place we’d never heard of >>
