I had planned to write a post this week all about our favourite place to visit as a family, Pudney woods. Unfortunately this is a late replacement for that post, which will hopefully follow soon.Continue reading “Pudney Woods – Not as intended”
It is often considered that television and kids are not a healthy combination. For generations, the most popular kids programmes have often offered very little in terms of education or development but things are a little different now.Continue reading “The best kids channels on YouTube”
If you’re looking for a fun yet simple craft to make with your toddler this Easter, this could be just the thing.Continue reading “Great Easter crafts for the family”
It’s that time of year again. Robbie returned home from his nursery yesterday bringing with him a gift of easter nests that he had made with his teacher. Then it struck me, I actually had no idea how to make them but my two year old son did. Scary.Continue reading “Simple chocolate Easter nest egg recipe for kids”
We’ve nearly made it. I’ll admit I have no clue how long we have actually been in lockdown for nor how long it has been since I saw certain family or friends.Continue reading “Well hello civilisation”
Day 38 of lockdown part 3, I think. I had promised myself that this time I would be far more productive and spend time getting my life in order, taking advantage of the extra free time rather than just melting further into my armchair.Continue reading “Too much time on my hands?”
There’s a definite theme occurring that I can’t help but dispute. Almost each and every time a member of the public stops to talk to Robbie, they refer to him as a ‘little angel.’ Of course, I always give the typical parent reply of “you should see him at home” or something along those lines.Continue reading “Who’s the angel? Robbie versus Daddy”
So here we are back in lockdown and to be honest, I’m looking forward and hoping the next few weeks are better than the last.Continue reading “A new adventure”
Like so many others this year, our Summer holiday had to be cancelled and sunny Spain will have to wait a while longer. Our little man deserved a holiday though, so we rented a caravan for a weekend in Yarmouth at Cherry tree park.Continue reading “Cherry Tree Caravan Park in Yarmouth”
Now I realise that most of you reading this post will have absolutely no idea what that title means and I must admit, I only learnt myself last week. My little old blog is less than a year old so this is my first October as a blogger.Continue reading “Blogtober is here!”
Last month after one hangover too many I took the decision that it was time for a break from alcohol. It’s now been just under a month and tomorrow marks the end of my detox so I thought it time to have a look at the results.
Well that’s another week over with and I’m actually pretty glad to see the end of this one. I’m not really that keen on being busy and things have been far too hectic for my liking. From Robbie waking up with a temperature last Sunday things went downhill pretty fast.Continue reading “Covid, birthdays and detoxes”
Dear Mr Liver,
We seem to have a bit of a problem recently and I feel it is time we addressed some issues rather than continuing the pointless battle between us in which their are no winners, just losers.Continue reading “An open letter to my liver”
Monday is the big day. The tiny little monster that we created will be celebrating his 2nd birthday and we can’t wait to make it as special as we can for him.Continue reading “Back to reality – It’s birthday time!”
Don’t be fooled by the picture, this post really is not all about Robbie. Today is MY day and this post is all about me!Continue reading “Today’s the day”
I’m still working on convincing Robbie of the importance of football. Though many would argue that there are far more important life skills to be teaching a one year old boy, my focus on prioritising such aspects has always been a little off key.Continue reading “Guest Post – Oli Harris”
It’s a pretty big week for me. Though it may seem that very little is actually happening, I have two major landmarks in my life this week.Continue reading “From yesterday, to tomorrow”
A couple of weeks I created a post that I thoroughly enjoyed writing. I was looking back and reflecting on all of the changes in Robbie since isolation began and how much I was looking forward to showing him off to friends and family.Continue reading “Don’t be offended, it’s just writer’s block”
A few of you may have noticed that this poor little blog has been rather neglected recently. It’s been around three weeks since I last posted but there has been a very good reason for that… Nothing had happened.
There is always such excitement when a friend or family member has a new baby. It is often the case that people want to bring gifts to meet the new arrival and these post looks at how to get presents that the parents really want.
