The Bank Holiday Weekend Has Arrived

Slam! The Bank Holiday weekend has finally arrived and with that comes a whole heap of garden related fodder for Paul whilst I try my hardest to get back on track with blogging and such like.

For some reason or other I’ve not really been ‘feeling it’ over the past few days. I haven’t even bothered reading other people’s blog posts which is a tad naughty but I guess I’ll catch up with those that I read over the next few weeks or so. Please excuse my recent silence but I’ll be totally honest I’ve quite enjoyed living in the real World for a bit.…

Perfect Playtime Weather Permitting

As usual for my neck of the woods, it’s pouring it down. I am fairly used to the weather by now after thirty something years of it, but since having kids I have developed an inner hatred towards the rain. It’s bad enough finding ways in which to entertain two hyperactive little **** darlings, never mind having to do your best at being all round entertainer whilst being confined to four walls.

So far we have attempted the Pinterest picture perfect parent thing and made a fresh batch of play dough. The kids played with the warm dough for the whole of ten minutes before becoming bored and looking for their next fix.…
