To snook or not to snook – wot so funee?

I went through the notes in my phone the other day and found some funees that I haven’t written up. So these are from the past couple of months, but I can still remember them now that the notes jog my memory. When we were still living at Granny and Grandad’s house, Andrew saw a bit of a game of

52 photos – week 37

Oops, I thought I’d posted these photos on Sunday but I must have not hit publish and the poor blog is a bit neglected recently. Anyway, better late than never. I took these on our day out with Thomas on Saturday. Both boys had great fun. Andrew couldn’t quite believe that he was really standing in front of Thomas, and

Joel looking happy in his new bike seat which I got as a bargain on Gumtree so that I can keep up with Andrew on his bike without having to jog (which isn’t good if I have Joel on my back). Andrew looking happy because he had all the toys to himself at the start of the Bournville Scarecrow festival

Don’t mention ginger! It doesn’t help severe pregnancy sickness or #hyperemesis

I’m sure you’ve all noticed the big announcement in the news this week – little Prince George is going to be a big brother. Obviously that’s very happy news, but like when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced their first pregnancy, this announcement has had to come earlier than the usual 12 week milestone when many people share their

Doughnuts at nursery – wot so funee?

I realised recently that i haven’t written a wot so funee? post for a few weeks. Life got busy with the move and the business getting busier by the week. Althoughh blogging may be on the back burner, I still want to keep a record of our lives on it, and that includes the funny things that the boys say,

This picture was taken in the story chair at a park that we have recently discovered near us. The place is called Rowheath Pavilion, and as well as this lovely wooden adventure playground, there is a fantastic cafe which has a toy corner, and there are various groups for mums and babies/toddlers throughout the week – we went to the

Wembury rock pools – #CountryKids

Last week I wrote about our trip to Mothecombe beach in Devon when we were on holiday. That’s a mostly sandy beach on an estuary with lovely shallow water until quite a way out from the shore. Another day of our holiday we went just 5 minutes drive down the road from the edge of Plymouth to Wembury beach. Since

Our choice of nursery (preschool age)

I can’t believe that Andrew has just had his first week at preschool. It does’t seem long ago that he was a baby and we were treading through this thing called parenthood, not totally sure what we were doing, but doing our best to get off to a good start. Now he’s a chatty, confident and active boy, who loves

Mothecombe beach – #CountryKids

The weather forecast for the week that we were on holiday in Devon wasn’t as amazing as it had been earlier in the summer, so we decided to go to the beach on our second day there, the best looking day of the forecast, just in case we didn’t get another chance. Grandma and Pop had recently invested in a

We went to a kids activity morning at the church across the road earlier this week. We had so much fun! They had hired a community circus run by a guy called Kevin (www.kevinscircus.com). He brought with him all his circus gear and the kids could play with it. There were ride on silly bikes, stilts, funny hats and shoes,
