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 >>

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 >>

Our May Round-Up

  • June 2, 2017

Seriously, how is it June already?! Next month is the summer holidays! Madness. This year is flying by so quickly, probably because we’re so busy all the time. May is always a busy month as it’s Little H’s birthday. This kid has managed to get her 6th birthday to stretch over 2 full weeks! I like her style. Here’s a round-up of what we got up to in May… Our May >>

Our April Round-Up

  • May 1, 2017

Another month has flown by and it’s time to have a look back at what we got up to. It’s been another busy month and we’ve been quite lucky with the weather letting us have some nice afternoons out. We’ve been trying not to spend much money and have done well with days out that haven’t cost us much money. Our April Round-Up At the start of April we went >>

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 >>

Our February Round-Up

  • March 2, 2017

I feel like I only did my January round-up the other day but here we are in March already! I’m really hoping that Spring is just around the corner, I’m a bit fed up of this rubbish weather now. We’ve had a fairly relaxed February but still managed to get out and about a few weekends. Here’s our February round-up… I’ve been trying to find things to do after school >>

Our January Round-Up

  • February 9, 2017

I have only just realised that I forgot to do my January Round-Up! Last summer I started to do monthly round-ups which I found was a nice way to look back on all the fun things we had been up to. In January we had a pretty quiet month really, after the madness of Christmas it was quite nice to have a few quiet weekends. Our weekends have mainly consisted >>

Our 2016 Round-Up

  • December 31, 2016

I can’t believe we’re on the  last day of 2016, the last year has flown by. If you listen to the press it’s been a crap year, full of deaths of our favourite celebrities and shocking political decisions. However on a personal (and maybe selfish) note, we’ve had a great year. We’ve had loads of fun, fab days out, an amazing holiday and most importantly good health. In June I >>

Our October Round-Up

  • November 1, 2016

Back in June I started doing a monthly round-up of what our family gets up to – I can’t believe I’m already writing about what we did in October! October has flown by, probably because we’ve had some busy weekends… Our October Round-up At the start of October we went on a day trip to London. We got on the train and visited The Natural History Museum, followed by a trip to >>
