Today’s keyword for the July photo challenge day 14, is “activities“. This photo is of the kiddies before Noah went into the Ride Leisure aqua inflatable park. He had an hour of climbing over obstacles, sliding and swinging into the lake. He is very brave and thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Today has been very busy, I did my second most steps in a day! Which was only 20,000 – not much I know. I washed both cars, hoovered them too which was really therapeutic – we then went to Ride Leisure so Noah could do his aqua park activity. Then we walked the dogs around Paxton Pits and I walked home from there with the dogs as the kiddies were getting tired. It was a lovely walk.
Today’s keyword for the July photo challenge day 13, is “Friyay“. This photo is of Hubby and I watching the punting boats underneath the bridge at Cambridge river. It’s so peaceful watching that part of the river, despite it being extremely busy and full of wandering people. I do like to people watch. We were celebrating 9 years of marriage. It was nice to get out and have a date night.
Today was a busy one and Daddy isn’t feeling too well which isn’t great. After work we played in the garden, I filled the paddling pool up and Daddy had a nap. Then we went into Cambridge for our date, I love going into Cambridge – it’s very pretty. It’s nice to get out and have some time together.
While every parent’s dream is to send their child to university, it is often more expensive than the average working class family can afford. If you take into account that the average salary as of 2018 in the UK is £27,271 and that the cost of undergraduate programs at university can reach £9,250 per year, it is understandable that most working class parents are seeking ways to grow any savings they can accrue. This typically means investing small amounts over a long period of time and for the most part, this is a good plan. However, what kind of investments are safe and are you willing to invest in a fund overseen by someone else, no matter how knowledgeable that person might be? Here is an unusual option to consider.
Noah was sent a fun Trap & Gap set by Strictly Briks, we love it as it fits with Noah’s standard sized bricks. He can add to this from his brick collection and he turns it into a metropolis car park for his visitors. He loves playing with his bricks and it’s nice to see him being able to apply his logical mind to play!
There is nothing more satisfying than being able to install your dream bathroom and use it every day to get ready for work or play. But putting together that bathroom can be overwhelming – so much to think of, so many choices, so many colours, materials, combinations: however can you begin?
You know it’s true; you wait all year for your big summer break, planning and meticulouslydrawing up schedules, and as the date approaches and you start to pack, you often take far too many items away with you. Overpacking, and subsequently struggling with heavy luggage can make for a stressful start to timeaway, so take what you need and resist squeezing everything but the kitchen sink into your suitcases. As the date of your holiday comes ever closer, set some time aside to make a detailed list, and then to try and half that list to only include the essentials. If you’re travellingwith young children, then it’s vital to keep them happy and entertained when waiting in queues, to board flights, and when out for food, for example. What are the best ways of making sure your holiday goes smoothly? Below are four top tips to ensure you have a stressfree time away.
Today’s keyword for the July photo challenge day 10, is “boys“. This photo is of my boys, little Noah and Daddy! They make my life an adventure, always doing something and always on the go. They are fun, happy and constantly being silly!
I loved a post today that my Uncle posted on Instagram, it made me cry and is just so accurate. It made me think about what Grandad must have gone through in his lifetime. My Father would have loved all the celebrations today for the RAF centenary. Joining as a cadet at Cranwell he was posted to RAF Uxbridge in September 1939 & as he walked through the gates there it was announced we were at war with Germany. He was 16. He was shipped to India for a while & then flown to the Cocos Islands during the war. He quickly rose up the ranks from sergeant to corporal then became the youngest ever person at age 32 to be made a warrant officer. From RAF Wittering in 1954 he was posted to Egypt, Cypress & Malta (1956). He was also part of 100 squadron bomber command on a goodwill mission to New Zealand. He left the RAF IN July 1966 having served with them for 28 years. He was an intelligent man with a brilliant mind that was in high demand. One story in particular I remember involved him being sent for in the middle of […]
Juggling a career and family commitments is hard work. You must balance the demands of work with home life, and you may find that once your child or children hit full-time school, the equilibrium is disrupted. Wrap around childcare is an option if the school offers a breakfast cluband after-school activities, but this solution does not suit all familiesor be an expense that doesn’t make economic sense.
Today’s keyword for the July photo challenge day 9, is “new“. This photo is from my new iPhone 8 plus – the camera is absolutely incredible and I love this photo so much. It’s a new wild flower meadow in our local park. It is really pretty.
Today was a busy one and a bit cooler, I thought, we had a nice dog walk after work and Noah did some cycling with Beavers. He really enjoyed it, zooming past me in the park. Isla and Daddy went on their own bike ride and we all met up afterwards.
Today’s keyword for the July photo challenge day 8, is “Sunday“. This photo is of the kiddies and our good friends. They love seeing these guys and were so excited as they have just come back from Dubai. It was nice to explore Bury St Edmunds.

We’ve had a great day, relaxed and chilled, just what we needed. Isla loved her second horse riding lesson, she had a great big smile on her face. We then watched the football as a family, it was lovely. Afterwards we went to the park to get the doggies some fresh air in the cooler sun and the children burnt off some steam.
Tackling the children’s bedroom can sometimes seem like an enormous job! Clothes everywhere, toys littering the carpet, bedsheets hanging on the ends of the bed and the most frustrating element: toys not together in their sets. Like the Lego with the Lego! Here are some of my top cleaning tips for dealing with this and making their rooms a happy place:
Today’s keyword for the July photo challenge day 6, is “travel“. We are always on the go… travelling from location to location, day to day…. every day is a path chosen and a journey completed. #travel to me makes me think of the direction I’m heading, the road ahead. The journey we’ve been on so far has been amazing: I’ve met some fabulous people who I hold close to my heart, I have a lovely supporting family who look after me, I have a super husband who does everything for me and gave me my precious babies. I would never have chose this life 15 years ago (I was adamant I didn’t want children) but everyday is a new day, a new path can open up and what happens is just meant to be. History! I love this photo of my familam looking out for jumping fish or diving birds!
