flu.

Just a little post to explain the silence over here really. I’ve lost the last four days to flu and it’s been miserable. Especially as it coincided with the start of the kids half term, and our lovely lazy day and then weekend of fun was halted by me not being able to get out of bed, though they had fun absolutely wrecking the house. Every so often one of them would come to see…

Travel: South Coast towns to visit by Train

We live on the South Coast and in fact I have done pretty much all my life but there are still so many towns I’ve not really explored with the kids, or at all in some cases! This year I want to take a few more day trips with them by train, we live right next to a station and train travel for us is such an easy way to get around as we can…

3 Places in South of France We’d Love to Visit

I’ve been to France a few times, though there is so much more of the country for me to explore! So far I’ve not yet managed to make it to the south of France, home of beautiful beaches, stunning landscapes and the gorgeous blue seas- all things that I adore. I’ve been to Paris, the Alps and a few towns on the north coast on day trips and school exchange trips. So here are the…

Scrapbook Loves in January ’19

We spent most of the month in hibernation, just creeping out for school runs and the odd weekend walk with friends. Oh, also a birthday lunch for me! It’s been a month of stress, dentist trips, tax bills and so on so we’ve really not done anything exciting! Here’s my usual ‘scrapbook loves’ post for the month! Read I’ve read eight books this month (told you we mostly hibernated) and would recommend the ‘Crazy Rich…

Me and Mine – January 19

Thank goodness January is over! Though saying that February will probably be just as cold, potentially snowy but at least it contains a half term! Our photos for January were taken last weekend on a wet woodland walk with friends. In January I turned thirty five, and don’t feel so bad about it really, but man, thinking about turning FORTY in five years is a little scary! I’ve not really done anything this month other…

If I got pregnant now I’d be a ‘geriatric’ mum (no plans to though!) I also think I look my age now more than ever, I’m getting eye wrinkles and I definitely have a middle…
