We spent the weekend at Centre Parcs with all the family for Grandma’s special birthday (I won’t say how old but it’s between 69 & 71). Sunshine and I made a cake which ended up being dropped so it was a little lopsided and I had to fend off the toddler who was on a mission to eat as much frosting and poke that cake as much as she could. The kids had a fantastic time, they LOVED the pool and didn’t want to leave! I’ve never seen such pruned fingers and toes. shutterflies blog-010We got a waterproof disposable and the photos are hilarious! I’ll spare you the sight of me in a swimming costume though!

The rest of our weekend was spent hanging out, reading, playing a rather stressful game of Sequence (if you haven’t played it, you need to! It was brilliant) and enjoying the surroundings. We were near a huge pond and woke up on Sunday morning to a visitor tapping on the window…

I’ve had a film that I’ve meant to get developed for months and finally took it this week when I took the camera. I’d completely forgotten what was even on there so it made me smile to see some photos from our freezing beach trip.

Have a great week!

For this week, I’ve chosen a photo that I know will mean so much to me in years to come  – my boy with his favourite toys. I love watching him play, he has the most incredible imagination and memory. How amazing would it be if he ended up writing for Dr Who in the future? He has already invented some pretty scary monsters so you never know!



This little girl is just hilarious. I’m so lucky that I get to be with her every day and I am really enjoying this age.


Where’d she go?



Someone moved into a big girls bed and her little room got a bit of a makeover. I love her room! If the bed wasn’t 5 foot long, I’d probably move in myself. She loves it too and has been going in there to play which she hasn’t really done before. “Mine bed! Mine room!”
