Our Weekend at Camp Bestival 2017

Last year we visited Camp Bestival for the first time, J was 3 and we weren’t sure if it would be a good weekend for her or not. It was – she loved every part of it – the camping, the music, the kids activities and the rides – she was a festival convert and has since spent the year asking when she could go back

When are we going to stop with the Mum Guilt?

This week I was sat with some mums whilst J and the other kids were doing their thing and the conversation turned to the fast approaching start of school. Naturally we discussed all of the prep we’re having to do and the settling in days that the kids are going through at the moment

Nursery and pre-school graduation inevitably came to the forefront of this conversation and I advised the group it was the day before we go on holiday for 2 weeks, the session is 1:30-4pm and neither my husband or I were likely to make it. I was met with gasps of shock and surprise and they were horrified that I’d miss it (hubby wasn’t mentioned – as it was apparently acceptable for him to be at work)

A Month of Adventures {May 2017}

Where April was so busy with constant travel and lots booked in May was a lot more relaxed. We spent a couple of weekends close to home, travelling to places on foot and enjoying a slower pace of life. I looked back through my camera roll and I actually have no idea where May went because we didn’t actually do that much

A Month of Adventures {April 2017}

Month 4 of my monthly review and I think it’s actually one of my favourite things to do on here as I often forget what we’ve been up to. It’s been so nice looking back over April, it was once again as wild and busy as March but with much less focus on work and more focus on family and travel

My Family Adventures {March 2017}

As you’re reading this I’m in Devon with my little crew for a much needed family holiday as March has just been a whirlwind of busy days and weekends. It doesn’t mean that we haven’t stopped and caught our breath, in fact there has been a lot of quality family time, but with really hectic work schedules, weekend and evening working, a weekend away for me and back to back birthday parties it’s just been one of those months  when we knew a holiday would be welcomed at the end of it

My Family Adventures {February 2017}

And just like that we are at the end of February. Time needs to slow down for me as J starts school in  September and whilst she is ready for it I’m not sure I am just yet. Our family is complete but I was looking back at her baby photos this week (as you do) and wondered where on earth those 4 years have gone

This is my second month of linking with #MyFamilyAdventures hosted by KA on the Life as Our Little Family blog and Instagram community. I loved linking up in January and having a round up of my favourite photos from the month, they may be the ones that make their way into the end of year photo album…

My Family Adventures {January 2017}

I honestly cannot believe we are nearly at the end of the 1st month of 2017. Whilst illness has dominated most of January we did manage to venture out and explore some of the south. One of my favourite Instagram communities is #MyFamilyAdventures, and when I was told there would be a monthly round up linky on the blog I knew I just had to join in

Right at the very beginning of January we visited Deerleap in the New Forest for a walk. J took her bike for the first time since learning how to ride without stabilisers and decided to ride through every puddle she could find, which made for some really funny moments (especially when she got stuck!)
