I have been doing bucket list for the last few years and an annual one is always one that is so nice to look back upon and see how many I achieved. It’s always nice to see how you start and end a year with very different mind-sets and ideas of what the year ahead looks like. I revisited my 2017 bucket list and it was lovely to see so many unexpected ones on there and creating new bigger ones throughout the year, namely our big trip to Walt Disney World next year. 2017 was without a doubt one of…

It’s always nice to make a list for the forthcoming year. I have done this for the past few years and it’s nice to look back 12 months on to see how many I achieved. It’s also nice to see what my aspirations were 12 months ago and how life really can be so unpredictable and you can never fully go through with what you always want. It is always good fun writing one of these and here is my 2018 goal list; but first lets revisit 2017. Renovate the kitchen. FAIL. We finally did our bathroom and it looks…

November is always a good month for me. It is not only acceptable to talk about Christmas but it is also my birthday month! Yes the best people are definitely born in November. On to our penultimate bucket list of the year and indeed forever; I have decided not to run the monthly bucket list in 2018 as I feel I have more time on my hands with the girls at school, so I no longer need reminding. I will stick to an annual one as it’s always so nice to look back on. Thanks to all those loyal folk…

The nights are drawing in, my hand is hovering over the central heating and all around us is turning orange and brown; it can mean only one thing – October is upon us. I love October as you know where you stand. September can tease us in the hope of an Indian Summer which definitely did NOT materialise. With October, you know the clocks are going back and it’s going to be cold and dark but the prospect of Halloween is always something we look forward to here. I’ll hold my hands up and say September has been a funny…

I hope you all had a lovely summer. It’s just zipped by in a sunny/rainy flash hasn’t it. I have absolutely loved it if I am honest. Yes the kids have driven me mad at times, but I have really enjoyed our adventures including our family holiday. I am looking forward to some form of routine Plan our holiday to Wales DONE. We visited so many lovely places on our trip to Anglesey. I wrote about 5 of our favourite places here. Visit Hanbury Hall, Croome and Errdig NT. FAIL! Instead we visited other National Trust sites including Dudmaston, Carding…

School’s out for summer! (Can anyone say that without breaking into song?!) Yes we finished on 21st and I cried my eyes out as my girls left nursery for the last time. It really feels like such an end of an era with my last babies finishing. It’s the knowing that this time, it is final. No more babies. Sob. This month’s bucket list took me by surprise as I have officially lost track of what day/date it is. A sign the summer hols are really underway. I am yet again in shock that July is over, but here’s my list…

Do we all think the summer has been and gone? We had a mini heatwave and now lashing rain. July is supposed to be the start of the summer but it’s not looking promising is it?! June saw my babies turn four and we had a glorious BBQ with all their friends round for a BBQ. They all played on the new trampoline and in the paddling pool and didn’t leave til gone 7pm – it was fabulous. I always love June but it always makes me realise we are halfway through the year (and only half the year left…
