On Thursday evening I attended my first, and hopefully last, speed awareness course. I was completely gob-smacked at how little I knew about the roads, signs and hazards around me. I have always been a careful driver, ironically Hubby says I drive like a granny… after doing this course I will be even more aware of the environment around me and drive more carefully.
Whilst Noah was at Beavers, we took the doggies for a walk around Paxton Pits. Noah did pond dipping there so it made sense to all walk the doggies at the same time. So excited to hear the news about the new baby Prince. I felt so emotional when I watched William & Kate show off their new bundle.
Today Isla cycled by herself when we went out on another family bike ride. I’m so impressed. She cycled 7.7 Miles this week, without complaint. We stopped at the park for our picnic and the pub for a fizzy drink. It was a lovely lunchtime. We then went to Nannas for dinner which was nice and chilled. Well, once the kiddies had calmed down.

Today we had a busy day: we finished some gardening and Daddy took a whole car full of dead bushes/plants to the tip. We then went to a nearby rape seed field to get some sunset photos. I just love these kinds of photos. The kids were not in the mood really but we did eventually get some lovely photos. This is a sneak peek…
Summer seems to have come early with the hottest April since 1949, and if you’re like most people, you’ll be considering getting out the barbecue and potentially heading out on a road trip. Indeed, when the sun has got his hat on, England can be a great place to live and travel – yet despite the weakened pound, many families are still jetting off abroad in search of guaranteed sunshine, both to Europe and more faraway places like America.
Today we had our first BBQ of the year and our first one with no meat, at all! Since January, Hubby has not eaten meat and he is going strong. Hubby eats fish though, unlike me. Noah still eats meat, his decision and Isla doesn’t really understand it all yet and eats a little bit of meat here and there. She is very fussy though, like I was when I was a meat eater. It’s nice to sit in the sunshine and enjoy the birdies singing.
What a day! I spent the morning sorting out the front and back garden, it was very hot to do that kind of manual labour but I had to do it. Then my poor Rambo started passing blood, which caused worry all day. Vets have said it’s just an inflamed colon. Poor boy. Then I had my speed awareness course in the evening. Which was an eye opener. I’m going to write about that separately.
For anyone on a diet, a dinner invitation can cause some serious panic. Armed with too many menu options and tempting guilty pleasures, dining out can be one of the greatest tests for anyone trying to cut the calories. Sticking to a diet doesn’t mean you need to be a social recluse or dread the weekly catch up with your mates. You can dine out successfully and enjoy your experience, simply by learning how to navigate any menu. Here are some tips that will help you eat smarter and stick to your diet goals while dining out.
After school we went to Great Grandmas and the kiddies had a lovely picnic dinner in the sunshine. It was so nice to sit outside in sunshine, albeit the kiddies got a little too hot. It’s so nice to have the sunshine, everything seems prettier and everyone seems happier.
