Sunday Scrapbook – Long days & sandy Beaches

I left off last week still in Norfolk, and we stayed there till Tuesday. My MIL, her partner and the kids great aunt and uncle took them out to a village fair for the day on Sunday, Athena rode a donkey for the first time and they all had a lot of fun from what I can gather! I caught up on a load of work and had some time to myself – bliss! On Monday we took the kids to Mundesley beach in the morning, which is very picturesque…

Sunday Scrapbook – Long Drives, New Cars & Norfolk

I’m so pleased to be starting a Sunday Scrapbook off with positive vibes for once, first time in three weeks! This past week has been generally lovely in fact. It’s been the first full week of our Summer holidays, though Arlo had one last day with the ‘old’ childminder on Tuesday. We’ll all miss her, and the 2 minute walk to her house! But she’s moving away, so sad! Anyway we had a nice day out with our friends on Monday, though having two cafe trips out with four kids…

Sunday Scrapbook – Lavender, Broken Cars & Afternoon Tea

Third crappy week on the trot, do I get a prize yet? Life just seems to be throwing one thing after another at us but hey ho! This week it was the car breaking down on the M23 with a bootful of IKEA shopping and both kids and a friend  on board! I lost power steering and all the dashboard lights lit up. I managed to crawl into the services as I didn’t want to be stuck on the hard shoulder. RAC eventually arrived, took one look and said it…

Sunday Scrapbook – Another Shitty week

I really wanted to be sitting down to write about what a wonderful week we had, with less injuries than last week but alas, it was not to be! I’ll start with the good bits: I spent a lovely day with Donna swinging through the trees at Go Ape, followed by a delicious dinner and a lovely drive home across the Downs with the sun setting as I drove and an audio book. I also had a lovely day with Arlo on Friday, he’s normally a bit tricky to keep…

Sunday Scrapbook: Bruises, Heatwaves & Den exploring

Well Hi! A bumper catchy up post from me as I’ve not done a Sunday Scrapbook in a couple of weeks, much to my own annoyance! But I wasn’t annoyed enough to miss out on precious sleep to write one so there we go. This blinking weather would be gorgeous if I was on holiday and didn’t have to get on with the daily grind of general life but I do, so it’s not. It’s hot, sticky and humid and it gives me a headache more often than not! I’ve…

Sunday Scrapbook: It’s okay to not be okay

I’m struggling. I can’t seem to get anything done properly. My house is a tip (more than it normally is) and there are piles of clean washing that have been waiting to be put away for over a week. I have adminy paper work to file for household stuff, and last year’s tax return to file work wise. I have a gazillion blog posts to write in my head (thankfully nothing review wise is outstanding as I’ve been saying no to most things) and no time to get them actually written.…

Sunday Scrapbook – Beaches and big puddings

A super quick post from me as I’m on my phone and we’re currently camping in Rye. Firstly Happy Fathers Day to all the dad’s out there! Hopefully everyone has a lovely day planned? We arrived at the campsite on Friday night, had a gorgeous morning at Camber Sands on Saturday and a stroll round Rye in the afternoon. Thankfully both kids are still sleeping as I write this… it’s 7am which is a miracle for them! Fresh air, late nights and a hot tent to sleep in is the…

Sunday Scrapbook – Birthdays, Boats & a Busy Week

It’s been a slightly hectic week, Athena’s birthday, Sam being away for a couple of separate nights for work and a whole bunch of errands. I’ve also become addicted to Madam Secretary too, I can’t stop watching it! Last Sunday we had a lovely day out at the ‘Floral Fringe Fair’ at Knepp Castle near Horsham, Athena and her friend did a little kids yoga session, there were lots of old vintage cars, organic cider and some lovely cakes! When we got home we had a little nap and then…

Sunday Scrapbook – Fun Days Out & Sadness

Half term has been a funny week – loads of sun and a bit of rain and lots of fun, with added tantrums thrown in for good measure. On the Bank Holiday we had a family day out, took our Me & Mine photos and visited a little farm, with parks, ride-ons and a tractor ride, which was a lovely day! Tuesday was just Athena and I as Arlo was at the childminder, so she did some letter writing practise (still not interested really!) and I did a bit of…

Sunday Scrapbook – Lonely, Beaches & the War.

Hands up who caught the sun this week? We had a couple of blinking gorgeous days on the south coast! I crept out onto the roof a couple of times to bask in the warm rays, we’re not meant to really but the kids weren’t home and I couldn’t resist a peaceful half an hour out there! I managed to not get too sunburnt either, which makes a change for the first sun of the summer! Arlo has still been a bit of a nightmare as he carries on getting…

Stuff on a Sunday – Low Tide, Screaming & Dinner

This is the last ‘Stuff on a Sunday’ post you’ll read, but panic not! I’ll still be doing them only they’ll have a different name by next week, as will the whole blog as I’m re-branding this week! But anyway, I missed an update last week as I was up to my elbows in washing or under a poorly Arlo. He had a nasty sickness bug for four days, which made him super grumpy, though understandably so! Anyway I spent a bit of time writing up our Bluestone holiday, and…

Stuff on a Sunday & Me & Mine April 2017

I’m cheating a bit this week and putting my Me & Mine photos in with my normal ‘Stuff on a Sunday’ post purely because I can’t be bothered to write two separate posts! I spent the week doing a bit of planning for holidays and days away in the Summer, always exciting! I had by penultimate day at the hotel, my last day there is Wednesday coming and then I am FREE! hurrah! I spent Monday reminiscing a bit about work and our old colleagues as he is visiting the…
