Magic Moments // New Season Same Fun

It’s here.  It’s the time of the year I look forward to so much.  It is the start of Spring which means it’s time to pitch our caravan back down the coast.  My definition of happiness has to involve a caravan in there somewhere.  I love it.  It is our space where we just strip back all the complexities of life, put the brakes on, and focus on what is important – and that undoubtedly means spending quality time as a family. Yes, I admit that our site is a little muddy at the moment.  But that is why Read on…

Magic Moments – 23/8/2015

After returning from a really special family holiday, the week settled back in to its usual pattern.  On my way to work I dropped H off at the childminder and his parting words to me were “have a nice holiday Mummy”.  They couldn’t have been further from the truth, but they did at least bring a smile to my face.  The rest of the week was spent wishing it away so we could go back to our caravan.  He and I went there without Daddy this time and it was lovely Read on…

H’s birthday is coming up soon and so I asked Hubby to take our child for a hair cut.  “Just a trim”, I said, “so that he doesn’t look scruffy on his photos”.  On Tuesday morning he left the house as my little long-haired baby boy and he came back that afternoon as a grown up!  I know Hubby wasn’t happy that I had given him a task to complete on his day off, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he didn’t mean to Read on…

Pooping Sandcastles

If the heading doesn’t give it away then I will warn you that the main topic of this post is poo. And just for further clarity we are of course talking about baby poo. For those of a queasy disposition then do not read on any further. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!   Note:  You will however miss quite a funny – even though I say so myself – true story. We have gone to Cornwall – more specifically Polzeath – on camping holidays for the last 10 years.  It is Read on…
