This plus that equals…. my birthday

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. It was my birthday on Sunday, not a big birthday, nothing important. Certainly never something I’d usually write about but this year I had a lot of fun, real fun. So I want to thank everyone.

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).

Bowling House Norwich

Last weekend we took L to Bowling House in Norwich for a little treat. It may or may not have escaped your attention but L started school in September. I have not been handling it well! I was given plenty of advice from plenty of people but the one thing that stuck with me was from a friend of mine who simply said, make sure you have some nice things planned. Bowling House Norwich Continue reading Bowling House Norwich

SJ Works Bicycle First Aid Kit Review & Competition

Until this year, whilst L has been an an odd in between stage, I could often be found out on my bike with L. Never once did I think of taking a first aid kit, not because I couldn’t see a need, I just couldn’t really think of an easy way to carry one with me. SJ Works have created the perfect solution and I’ve been so pleased to get to try it out.
