Surviving Winter With BioCare

The kids at school have been dropping like flies. Of the 16 children in L’s class only 8 were lined up to go in to the class last Monday morning. I’ll be honest, this filled with me with fear, it’s seems to be more when will he get ill, not if.

Feeling Calm #142

For my birthday a couple of years ago 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.

This week has been lovely, busy but not nearly as tough as last week. It has been quite chilled and we’ve all had a good time. 

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Our Visit to Croxden Abbey

We’re enjoying our second year of English Heritage membership. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £31 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it is next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.Croxden Abbey

I’m trying to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We more than made our money back on the membership last year and this, so I am very happy it is good value for money.

Testing the new Kids Menu at Turtle Bay

When it comes to eating out L is pretty easy-going, I literally can’t think of anywhere that we wouldn’t go with him. That being said, if he has a choice, he will only ever pick one of two places, Turtle Bay or McDonald’s (the lure of the Happy Meal is strong).

Feeling Calm #141

For my birthday a couple of years ago 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.

It’s been a bit testing this week, trying to fit everything and dealing with a very tired and irritable child and a very tired and irritable husband, which to be fair has left me tired and irritable. Fun times in our house at the moment!!

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

A Christmas Table with Hobbycraft

One of the biggest things about Christmas day for us, is Christmas Dinner. I love to make a fuss of it, set the table nicely and make everything look amazing. The only trouble being we have a teeny tiny table, squashed in a corner of our kitchen under some cupboards. With a little help from Hobbycraft, I’ve changed it into an amazing Christmas table.
