Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about our camping trip at the weekend. Our first ever camping trip. A blogger trip with Camping in the Forest. Most importantly the reality of camping with a toddler.
It’s not often challenges are more pleasurable than getting to spend some time in the garden with my best boy. So I was really happy to join in with the Sunflower Growing Challenge from GBC Group.
GBC sent L and I a lovely little gift box with everything we needed to plant our seeds. Some fab little garden tools for L, plant labels, a measuring tape so we can see how high they grow and of course the seeds.
With stories of childhood obesity never far from the headlines, it’s easy to believe that each generation of children is lazier than the last. But a new survey of 6 – 11 year olds suggests that British children believe they’re wrapped in cotton wool by their parents and would like more freedom to play outside. So that’s where the Sudocrem Play More Campaign wants to help.
What could be better than a ball nearly as big as you are? Not much as far as L is concerned. Making it super bouncy, kind of noisy and ready for some rough and tumble helps of course. Well that is essentially what Mega Bounce XL from Wicked Vision does.
L is a very lucky little boy. He doesn’t realise the extent of this. He looks forward to the postman arriving and he will ask the same three questions. ‘Is there a parcel today?’ ‘Is it a present for me?’ ‘Has it got wheels mummy?’ Usually I have to say I don’t know, but when I saw the box from Jazwares arrive I was safely able to answer yes to all three.
For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
L and I have just had a nice week. The weather has been fabulous. We’ve been in the garden so much. Just being outdoors is so good for the soul. I don’t think I’ve felt this calm in a long time.
So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about what would make my perfect summer, a wish list if you will.
How fabulous has the weather been? Not to be too British about it, but it has been a bit too warm on occasion #melting! It’s certainly got me thinking about those things that go towards making a perfect summer.
