Hello February

We did it! We made it through what felt like the longest month ever. January is never much fun, it’s cold, dark and everyone’s a little bit broke but February is here and I for one am feeling a lot better. Despite the cold wet January we still had a lot of fun so here is my usually little round up of the month that was.. I usually tend to hibernate in the colder months but it really gets me down being stuck in so the theme of the month was LAYERS, we layered up and got out as much as…

THE WEEKLY |Bella Turns Six|

Another week has passed and today is a very exciting day, Bella is SIX! It felt only right that this post should be dedicated to my girl as she turns another year older. I’ve never really told my birth or pregnancy stories on my blog. I started writing after Lottie was born so it seemed almost irrelevant to go back but when I think back now to six years ago, the day I met my blue eye’d girl it’s already turning into a blur.

We’ve started after school beach walks at least once a week, it’s…

Not only has it solved many a ‘what shall we do today?’ it has given us so many fantastic days out and allowed us to explore new places for a really great price. The put on such fab little activities for the children during half terms as well it makes it well worth it. This week we returned to one of our favourite local spots Corfe Castle. It was actually…

2017..

As 2017 draws to a close I can help but feel nostalgic and want to look back on the year that was. 2017 was an amazing year for us as a family I have made so many memories with the children I never want to forget. When I think back over some of the things we have done and the trips we have taken I can’t believe we fit it all into one year. I wouldn’t want to create an unrealistic perfect picture so with the good always comes some bad. Family strains really got down at points over this…
