An exciting visit to Butlins

An exciting visit to Butlins

Last week I had a rather lovely email drop into my inbox with a rather lovely invite. Firstly there was a mention of a family day, Brian Turner and us cooking with him. Now I am not one to be star struck ( I am thinking autographs, signed photo’s with us together that sort of thing!!!). But joking apart I was a huge fan of Ready Steady Cook back in the time when Brian was regularly … Read entire article »

Visit Finland

Visit Finland

Christmas for me is home. One of my Christmas day wishes would have to be that it’s cold and frosty and snow please for an extra bonus! So for me if you said I had to choose somewhere to go on holiday for Christmas it would have to be somewhere like this. I don’t think I would necessarily be choosing to go for a icey dip or rolling in the snow with just my underwear on. … Read entire article »

Good times

So I have just unpacked my case from my trip to Bath, taking just Bex and leaving Oscar at home to make sure his Dad behaved. Though I might add I did take out the washing as we came back Wednesday night. I am not quite that slack but yes a little slack on unpacking the rest!!! Anyway it was great to have some one to one time with Bex. Oscar had a fab time with his Dad and I know it did both of them good too. It was lovely to catch up with family and friends. Great to catch up with my oldest (not in years) best friend. Even though she visited me with her family last week it was great to meet up just the two of us in the … Read entire article »

That week went quickly

Well this week seems to have rushed by us. Which means one week of the Summer holidays has also gone a little too quick. Oscar has turned 10 this week, on Friday. I should have done a birthday post for him too, but giving him the choice of me sat here typing something about him or me spending time with him well there is nothing in it really!!! After the fab party on Monday, written about on Tuesday the rest of week whizzed by. Friday being Oscar’s birthday was an ‘Oscar’s choice day’, which meant a chilled out day at home. To include present opening (of course), a cheese and biscuits, dips and salad lunch. Scrummy strawberry and cream cake with a pot of tea in the afternoon and homemade burgers (gherkins … Read entire article »

Memories, snakes and a lovely time

Well that week went far to quickly which can only mean one thing, we had a fab holiday! Firstly it was a wonderful break from the computer, despite taking it with me I decided not to turn it on. I think we all agree that the joys of the Internet has a great habit of consuming rather a lot of our time, so to stop that happening the answer is simple just don’t turn it on!!! The cottage we stayed in was more than I could of hoped for. It is always nice when you get more than you were expecting. We had and I didn’t expect this, the whole two and a half acres just for us. The most divine and peaceful garden, it was Mediterranean meets wild Wales. A total suntrap … Read entire article »

Off on Holiday

We are off for a weeks holiday, isn’t it funny when you say your going on holiday, people say “Going anywhere nice?” what sort of question is that! “No I booked a really cr*p holiday!!! What is worse is if you’re not, as we are not, going anywhere exotic you say “No just Pembrokeshire!” So we are off to Pembrokeshire tomorrow and no it’s not just Pembrokeshire because it looks really fab. So we are all packed and excited and it will be nice to have a break away. We are renting out a rather cute little cottage that’s a bit in the sticks with no Wifi so I will have a little time a way from my cyber side of life. It is always to tempting to check emails and a scoot … Read entire article »

Half term went too quickly

What a lovely half term we had, the weather was kind to us allowing us to do lots more things. The downside of having a great holiday is having to send the children back to school. For me with the troubles school sometimes brings for Bex it is always extra hard to send her back to school when we have had such great holiday. I will spend the day looking forward to them coming home and I am sure will get ” I had a great day ” fingers crossed anyway. Those who have pre-teen girls will know just how horrid girls can be, Bex is not one of them and because rather like me she will stand up for what is right, it comes back down on her in a negative way. So … Read entire article »
