Last Friday we had an inset day, so with some friends we headed down to Drayton Manor Theme Park for the day. The weather as we set off was horrendous and we were really considering cancelling our plans, the drive down was awful, roads were flooded and visibility was really bad on the motorway. But by some stroke of luck when we arrived the rain seemed to ease and we managed to get through the whole day with only mild drizzle to contend with. The wettest we got was on the water rides 😉 Read more
Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone! What have you all got planned today? Anything exciting? We have no plans today and it just feels so good! I’m kind of jealous seeing everyone on holiday at the moment over on Instagram but know that it will be me in a few weeks so I can’t really complain. I am really ready for a holiday and a change of scenery right now. Thankfully the kids are off this week so we will be doing some more exploring locally. I hope you all have a fab week whatever you are up to xx
I’ve really been struggling with my mental health recently, I wish I knew why and how I could make it go away but I really don’t so I decided I would take some positive steps to see if I could change things up a bit. After reading How to be Happy by Eva Woods I decided that I would start the #100HappyDays challenge where I would post a photo of something happy from my day over on Instagram and obviously I just had to turn it into a blog post too. So here are my first ten days… Read more
Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are all ok and enjoying the glorious weather we are having. We have had a lovely weekend exploring some places locally that we have never been to before… It felt a bit like being on holiday which was very much needed after a week of SATs for Boo.
A helicopter flight has been on my wish list for ages, despite having done it when I was little I really wanted to experience it again so I was over the moon a couple of months a go when the lovely people at Buyagift sent me a voucher for a 25-35 Minute Extended Helicopter Flight for Two and last Saturday we finally got to have our helicopter experience over Nottingham.
Monday again already? I have a real love to hate relationship with Monday. I hate it because everyone leaves… James goes to work and the kids go to school and I’m on my own again! I’ve been feeling so low and lonely recently and I just hate it. I love Mondays because it means I can finally catch up with everything I haven’t done while enjoying time with my family. I really can’t win can I 😉 Read more
Good morning everyone. I hope you all had a lovely long weekend and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. We spent the whole day cycling yesterday, it was absolutely glorious along the canal but we were all totally worn out when we finally got home. It’s so nice to be sat doing my work and not being cold, I feel like I have been cold for so long so I am really enjoying the sun. I’ve got lots of plans this week and I am really looking forward to them, especially tomorrow when I get to take Liam out for lunch 🙂 Read more
