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 way forward!   The rest of the week has been pretty nice too, family day on Monday where we went out for a pub lunch, a walk around Highdown Gardens – which is local to us and somewhere I spent a…

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 headed out to a friends for the kids to have a splash in their paddling pool. It was a lovely warm day, then the rain hit for a few days! I have still got a super itchy back from getting…

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 work – which mostly consisted of spending time talking to tech people trying to sort various email issues out! (Microsoft office help people are naff and the TSO host people who I host my blog with were very helpful, in…

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 over his virus, but he woke up this morning without gunky eyes so I’m hoping this is the last few days of it! He’s been a nightmare going to the child minders, as we turn the corner into her road…

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 editing the vlog last weekend between bouts of him being sick and loading and unloading the washing machine! Arlo got better for a couple of days and then turned into the toddler from hell, which was fun. I’ve been so stressed…

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 UK from Australia where he lives now, but we met at work years ago! We went to the Sealife Centre with the kids and then strolled to the end of the Pier and back (it as a soft play centre…

Stuff on a Sunday – Googly Fruit & School Places

We had a super lazy Easter Sunday and Monday, Sam worked on both days and my mum visited on Sunday bringing balloons and chocolate Lindt Bunnies. I was still feeling pretty run down and rough so perfectly happy to have a quiet weekend, and I think we all needed it after a busy couple of weeks just before! I only had one working day this week because of the Easter school holidays, but both kids were at the childminders for a day on Tuesday so I cracked on with as much as I could but worked most evenings this week to make up for it! Considering it’s the holidays we’ve not actually done much, lots of playing, painting and a few sittings of ‘Ballerina’ which is Athena’s new favourite film.…
