Everyday Us – Visiting Santa

Last weekend the kids got to see Santa again, we went to Marwell at the end of November, but when we were offered that trip I had already purchased tickets to see the man in red at Leeds Castle and booked a night in a hotel near by too – so the lucky ducks got to see him twice! Thankfully…

Everyday Us: Throwing Leaves

My kids love to throw leaves.  They love to throw leaves at me, each other, Sam, anywhere really. I was fairly sure this big pile of leaves wouldn’t have anything too nasty lurking in it as it was at Marwell when we visited to see Father Christmas! At our local park I am always extra wary that the dogs haven’t…

Everyday Us: It’s five O’clock in the morning…

No, not that Lily Allen song but the time Arlo wakes up. Why five am? Who knows? We’ve tried changing various things, putting the heating on lower, higher, earlier, later, going to bed later, earlier, bigger dinner, less drink… nothing changes.

Everyday Us – ‘Helping’ with the Laundry

Both children, but Arlo especially, love to ‘help’ me with the washing. It’s got to the point where I have to double and triple check what’s in the machine before I put a wash on as often the odd discarded sock or pair of PJ bottoms will end up in there – either that are already clean or are completely…

Dirty Little Urchins

Dirty little urchins would be about the best way to describe Athena & Arlo over the weekend. They spent their time hurtling around the campsite, barefooted and feral. Swinging on tire swings, clambering up dusty banks, chasing each other over wooden bridges and generally having as much fun as possible. Our evenings were spent toasting marshmallows and staying up late……

Everyday Us: Athena writing her own Christmas Cards

Athena came home with her first Christmas card at the beginning of last week from a classmate. She was so excited to sit down open it and find out who it was from… I think their teacher hands them all out in bulk at the end of the day so she didn’t know exactly who was from till she opened…
