July. How hot were you?! I didn't know if I was coming or going last month. Plus my emotions were all over the place with one child finishing pre-school and the other finishing Infants. Hello holidays and time with my beauties...
It's safe to say I'm a bit of a box set addict. I like nothing more than a good thriller or drama, full of twists and turns. Here's a run down of the shows I'm currently watching...
So we've made it through the first week of the holidays relatively unscathed. Whilst it is lovely to have my two girlies home all week I forgot how exhausting it is - and just how much they eat! One of our favourite activities of week 1 was rock painting. There is a fun game happening in our area where you decorate stones and then hide in the local area for others to find and then re-hide to keep the fun going. We have already found and re-hid loads but this is our first batch of decorating. We will be out hiding and hunting next week if the weather improves!
We’ve teamed up with Gulliver's theme park to give away a family ticket worth over £70 for a bumper day out at Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath, Gulliver’s World in Warrington or Gulliver’s Land in Milton Keynes.
Husband and I celebrate 10years of marriage next month. Tin is the traditional gift and I've been desperately trying to find perfect present for him to celebrate 10 fab years but I keep hitting a brick wall. Why are men so hard to buy for!
I asked my blogging pals to share their ideas for 10th wedding anniversary gifts for men and while I can't reveal what I've decided on just yet, I can share their fantastic suggestions...
School's out for Summer! Whoop whoop!
We've had a big brainstorm over the weekend and here's our list of all the fun activities we want to tick off our bucket list before the new school year starts in September (I've managed to sneak a few practical ones in too!)...
I've sat down this week and sorted out my Kindle. It was a long process but I now have proper 'read' and 'TBR' folders which makes my soul happy. I can now see all the fab books I have lined up ready to read and prioritised the titles I aim to read over the Summer.
I have been tagged by Debbie from My Boys Club to take part in #shufflethemusic where I shuffle my favourite playlist and tell you all about the first 15 songs which pop up! How exciting! I am going to shuffle the music on my iphone as my ipod died recently and I haven't got my library backed up anywhere (cue tears).
We are experiencing a scorching Summer at the moment so it is really important we keep kids and babies well hydrated. I have 4 Doidy Cups to give away to 4 lucky winners to help encourage your baby to learn to drink from an open cup - after all spills don't matter in this heat!
