All summer long we had builders in working on our extension. Mostly the weather was great so we were just chilling out in the garden, or we had days out planned. When we were tired we still had an internet connection so we could watch Netflix in the conservatory. It genuinely wasn’t too bad.
However, some days we were home, the weather was rubbish and on many of those days we had no internet as, on occasion, it had to be unplugged so things could be built. Those days were long. So freaking long.
As you all know the Easter break was a bit of a mixed bag for me, swapping form fun days out with the kid to funerals. What kept me going was the knowledge that we had a mini break in London booked, a stress free break with no driving and lots of fun.
There are so many baby products out there it can be hard to know what to buy, either for yourself or if you are getting gifts for others. Apramo have some amazing car accessories that are so useful and a must for any parent. A truly useful gift.
When I had L I made sure to check all the lists and get all the things they said you would need for a new baby. Some I did need and found really useful, nursing pillow, bouncer, baby bath. Some I most definitely did not need, like the Bumbo, room thermometer and dummies. Because you see, different kids, need different things and you’ll work most of it out as you go along.
Thinking about doing something a little different this Valentine’s? Then why not surprise your love with a holiday or day boat cruise on The Broads in Norfolk with the long established boat operator, Herbert Woods.
You can choose from a selection of luxury boats from their fleet or charter their special ‘Spark of Light’ 1927 vintage vessel for Valentine’s Day.
Herbert Woods offers some tips on their most romantic cruisers for your special celebration.
Last weekend we were really lucky to be invited to the press launch of Shrek’s Grotto at Shrek’s Adventure! London. Combining the fun of Far Far Away with the classic December jolly of a visit to see Santa.
A couple of weeks ago we did one of my favourite things, spent the day out on The Broads in a Picnic Boat from Herbert Woods. Hiring a boat on The Broads is a Norfolk right of passage and the perfect way to celebrate anything, so when my Mother in Law asked for ideas to celebrate my Father in Law’s 65th Birthday I immediately thought of a boat.
We have just spent the Bank Holiday Weekend in a Eurotent at Trevornick. It was fabulous. The perfect break for me as I had been desperate to take the kid camping this summer and have wanted to return to Cornwall for years.
