Christmas Time

So I'm currently sitting here with a cuppa, watching 'I'm a Celebrity', wearing my Christmas socks, trying to get into the Christmas spirit. It's coming, I can feel it, it's just taken a little longer this year. I think it's because every spare moment has been tied up with candle making (not that I'm complaining),… Continue reading Christmas Time

Halloween and Forest Holidays

I know, I know, its ages since I've blogged again, you don't have to tell me. Life is just passing by so quickly at the minute, and I never have a chance (or so it seems) to just sit down and 'catch up'. I'm working Mon-Weds, and when I'm not at work, I'm working on… Continue reading Halloween and Forest Holidays


Cot to Bed…

On Friday 7th July, Thea decided that at around midnight, she was going to launch herself out of the cot. Bollocks. We weren't going to move her into a bed until much later.

I have to admit, I've never been here and despite living… Continue reading Green’s Windmill and Science Centre


Mother’s Day: 2017

As per usual, but post is a few days late, but better late than never, right?  This year I was worried about Mother's Day, well not worried as such, but a bit dubious about eating out as Thea doesn't sit still, and I envisioned just running after her for the entire time. More about that… Continue reading Mother’s Day: 2017


Garden Fun

Now that I'm working three days a week, and need the car for two of those days, it's even harder for me to have the car on my days off work, (Wednesdays and Fridays). I've decided however, that once the weather is beter and we get more sunny days, who actually needs to go out?… Continue reading Garden Fun
