Go fish and squeamish in the supermarket

Oh dear. There was me thinking N’s never thought twice about eating cow, sheep or pig. Living on a livestock farm, we’ve always been very open about what food N is eating.  Exactly the same as his older cousins who we used to joke with about the piglets being called bacon and sausages.  N’s always […] Read more…


Pop Goes Your Name – children’s personalised cd

| Music, Reviews

doing the mashed potato dance

I’ve shared in the past how N is a bit of a rock child, in that he loves watching and dancing along to AC/DC.  We don’t generally listen to children’s music as I’ve not come across anything to date which doesn’t put me off listening.  Cue bad nursery rhyme mixes and the like.  So when […] Read more…

riding the park motorbike

We’re now onto week 39 of Project 365, and this week’s ended well, after N started suffering a horrible cold at the start of the week.  Thankfully a day later and he was getting back on good form. I did have a panic that he’d come down with chicken pox which is going round nursery […] Read more…


Trendy Thursday (ahem) – colour brights

| Children's style

purple and blue colour blocking

I only remembered the other day, that I had a great outfit of N’s I wanted to share.  Hence why we’re a bit late joining up with Trendy Thursday. The other day we headed out to Hatton Adventure Farm.  It was a lovely warm day, and N was in serious brights.  Usually his clothes are […] Read more…

There’s so many good places to go near us with children, it’s hard to get round to them all.  I used to go to Hatton Country Village for the shopping and craft shows quite frequently pre-N, but haven’t managed to visit the Hatton Adventure World part which is the place to go with children.  I’ve […] Read more…


I Want to be a Witch – Halloween books

I want to be a witch

Crikey, it feels like I’ve not written about books for so long.  We have been reading, well we’ve been reading picture books (I’ve not been reading myself!), and we’ve also had a clear out so we have a tiny amount of space for new books on N’s book shelves. The latest book we were sent […] Read more…


Back to swimming and a star float surprise

| Milestones, Swimming

swimming boy

It feels like we haven’t been swimming for ages, although because we finished later than usual, it’s only been around 4 sessions over Summer that weren’t on…oh and then we missed the first 2 lessons of term. I did manage to take N swimming in the holidays once at the outdoor pool – he was […] Read more…


Getting back into the swing of nursery school routine

nursery school lunch box

I’m presuming by now that all children of school age or nursery are back to school?  For us, it really shouldn’t feel like we’ve gone back to nursery.  N’s nursery school closed for the summer as it’s term time only, but he was still in day nursery his standard days, plus the additional days that […] Read more…
