As the main transporter (I feel like Jason Statham saying that) of the boys to and from school, during school holidays and so on, my car is the one that’s used the most. I often feel like I have a backseat driver with them telling me the speed limit – I suppose that helps with their number skills though – and on regular routes, which way to go. I often think to myself, just you wait until you’re running me around in your car when you’re older…
At the beginning of this summer we decided that we’d like to spend more time outside in our garden; though it hasn’t been as good of one as last summer, has it? We are due a heatwave this weekend, but I’m not sure whether to “yay” or “nay” as the older I get, the worse I seem to be able to cope with the heat! (And the cold, for that matter). Read more
If you’re anything like me then you may find it really difficult to keep the kids entertained during school holidays. Especially with activities or places to visit that don’t cost a lot of money. Luckily for us Bransby Horses Rescue and Welfare centre is just a few miles down the road from us in the Lincolnshire countryside.
Bransby Horses is dedicated to improving the lives of horses, donkeys and mules. With your support, we are working harder than ever to continue making positive differences to equines whenever we can. Founded in 1968 by Mr Peter Hunt, Bransby Horses is now one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities, currently caring for more than 400 animals.
Meccano – such a classic toy, isn’t it? It’s been around for so many years and is constantly evolving. I’ve never had any myself; it’s not really something I’ve ever been into, if I’m honest. But the boys, especially Jacob, are beginning to notice it more. As for The Husband, he’s had his fair share of it in his lifetime! With the boys being fans of cars and The Husband having a soft spot for Formula 1, this gave him the opportunity to revisit his Meccano building days and introduce the boys to it!

Now when I say wicked, I don’t mean wicked as in evil wicked; I mean wicked as in awesome wicked. Which is exactly what Wicked Uncle are. Especially for last minute Christmas shopping! I’m almost done with mine, but I do have a few little bits still to get this week. I am not usually as unorganised as this – I’m normally all done with wrapping by now! Luckily the boys still have another four days at school, so hopefully I’ll manage to get some done then. Read more
