Spa night - ticking one off the summer bucket list

Spa night – ticking one off the summer bucket list


One of the things the girls added to our Summer Bucket Listwas a Spa Night. We took our chance a couple of weekends back when Papa was at Wakestock. The girls were very excited – they set out all their nail varnishes/make-up/massage creams. I had my nails painted several times {and half of my fingers/toes!}, we did each others make up, and the girls gave me a very much appreciated arm and tummy…

Feeding a family at a festival

Feeding a family at a festival

The Dead Good Burritto Company

A few people have asked me about food at a festival – mainly in terms of how expensive is it, especially when you’re taking a family with you. You could easily buy every meal out, but that would have blown our budget feeding 5 people three times a day plus snacks! You could also completyl self-cater for every meal… but what we opted for was to take food for breakfast/lunch/snacks and then buy an…

Maternity Series - Week 18

Maternity Series – Week 18

Maternity Series - Week Eighteen

Eighteen Weeks – so close to the halfway mark! I’m so impatient now for our twenty week scan! I wish I could go right now. We’ve been talking names this week, and think we have *the one*. My fabulous new pram arrived this wee – thanks to Cosatto. So all we really need are clothes once we know the gender!

I’m still feeling pretty good, a little tired but ok in general. Sleeping is starting to get…

River Days

I think one of my very favourite places to go is the river… even in the winter I like to go and hear the water rushing by. But on a hot summer’s day, I don’t think there is a better place to be. Thursday was one of those glorious summer days – hot, clear blue skies and so much sunshine! Papa had a day off, so we packed up a picnic, hopped on the bus and spent the day by the river in Llangollen.

First trimester essentials

first trimester essentials

The first trimester can be a tough three months. You can feel sick, exhausted and emotional and quite often you have to pretend you feel fine as you haven’t told most people that you are pregnant yet! This pregnancy has followed my previous three and I’ve felt pretty good. I’ve know each time from about four weeks, so have always had a secret to keep for quite a few weeks!

Thankfully, I seem to…

Packing list for a family festival

Packing list for a family festival

family camping at a festival

Camp Bestival is just a couple of weeks away! We’re actually heading off two weeks tomorrow, as we’re staying in Bournemouth the night before to break our journey up. Last year I had the, ahem, wise idea of leaving at 2am…. thinking {hoping?!} that the girls would go back to sleep and we’d have an easy journey. Ooops. Everyone was way to excited to sleep so by mid-afternoon when we’d set up camp…
