Treefest - Hot tin roofs

At the start of our holiday, I’d arranged that we would meet up with a friend from uni and her sons, at Westonbirt Arboretum’s Treefest.  Online it looked like a really interesting event and would be a good opportunity for the boys to have place to run around as well as take part in some […] Read more…

Green fingered children – start them gardening young

| Activities & education, On the farm

gator gardening work

I’m not a fan of gardening.  Never have been and never likely to be. This year I’ve actually managed to grow tomatoes.  Loads of them, but I’m still waiting for them to turn red. And as I write this, we’re on holidays leaving the OH behind because of harvest.  When we return I’m expecting the […] Read more…

meerkat at all wild things feature

Today we went to the birthday party of one of N’s swimming friends at All Things Wild.  It’s a shame as they’re not much different in age, but the school year split means they’ll not be swimming together anymore. N can be a bit funny with friends, saying that ‘Only xyz is my friend’ and […] Read more…

It’s another Trendy Thursday, and I’ve got a couple of picks today. The first wasn’t planned, but I couldn’t resist including it. Like always, I set out clothes last night for N to wear today. But he decided he didn’t want to wear those. So once I was busy getting make-up and hair done, he […] Read more…

It’s not often we go out as a family as the OH’s always working. Sometimes if there’s a daytime BBQ or party of mutual friends then we’ll be there, but otherwise it’s always me taking N off somewhere. So when we do go out, even for mundane occasions it’s quite a novelty for N. For […] Read more…

11th Aug 2014 (Mon) Supermoon august 2014

Well it was the week of the supermoon, so needless to say one of my photos from my project 365 photo a day this week is the moon. It’s the first time I’ve managed to actually take a decent photo of it.  There was me frantically trying to set up my joby gorillapod*, and attempt […] Read more…


Role play – come to my shop

| Milestones, Observations

role play - playing shop

N’s role play is really coming alive now.  He’s been a bit limited before and it’s mostly been involving driving vehicles. But now it’s much more make believe, and making up stories using items that maybe aren’t relevent.  It’s definitely a case of pretending that what he’s using is a certain item…when it absolutely isn’t.
