On The Beach..

I think we can all agree January so far has been dark and dismal. I’ve been leaving for work in the dark and driving home in the dark. The sunshine this weekend was so welcome, despite it being freezing we headed straight to the beach. Before we knew it the sun started setting but it didn’t mean home time for us. We spent a good couple of hours scooting,(walking in my case) running down to the sea, finding shells and building castles. I almost love a winters walk on the beach as much as I love a hot summers day… View Post

Becoming Hockey Heroes!

I, like most parents want my girls to find a hobby they love and look forward to as well as being great exercise and good for developing social skills.

A Night Of Goodness With Arla |AD

Cosy nights in with my girls are my favourites, Arla provided the girls and I all we needed for a ‘goodness night in’ We couldn’t wait to get stuck in to our box of goodies. We snuggled up with some delicious hot chocolates made with Arla Goodness in our newly customised mugs! We ate freshly popped pop corn (some more than others cough cough). We played monopoly, and I tried to keep my competitive nature under wraps but ended up having the thrash all the kids anyway (opps). We finished up with a film – the perfect evening if you… View Post
