Our Summer Bucket List!


A way back I saw a few people is the US and Canada posting up "Summer Bucket Lists" (such as Jessica Scott) and I thought that it was a brilliant idea! As a family we are guilty of not doing as much as we could or should. I am the one full of big ideas, Hubby is the one who "ums" and "ahhs" about stuff until it's too late and it's all passed us by. Last summer - the first School Summer Holidays we had as our eldest moved up from nursery to reception - was a bit of a flop, so I decided that wasn't happening any more. I booked THIS YEARS summer holiday LAST YEAR and made sure it was paid off months ago and that there was money in a separate "holidays" bank account to make sure we have petrol money and admission fees covered.

Our Summer looks like this:


Anglesey for a long weekend. 


I loved it here as a kid!

  • Rhosneigr beach - where we got engaged
  • Newborough Warren beach - Coz it's beautiful and miles long
  • Hen Blas working farm & play zone - Kids will LOVE it what ever the weather
  • Sea Zoo - Ditto

France to Visit Papee & Mamee


I've not made any specific plans for here. My Dad & his Missus are enjoying making their own list of things they'd like to do with the kids

Uncle Bob & Aunty Rach's Wedding


Just being part of this will be fab

Blackpool 


Maybe an overnight stay? Although we live close enough to make two trips
  • The Zoo! 
  • Sea-life Centre
  • Donkey rides on the beach

LOCAL!


Sunny days
  • The Orchard & Fairfield Park
  • Happy Mount Park
  • Morecambe Beach
  • Williamson's Park & Butterfly House
  • Old Holly Farm

Wet Days
  • Wacky Warehouse
  • Giggles
  • The Zone
  • Brewster's

It's not going to be easy to fit it all in, mainly because I'm going to be working for a lot of it, but Anglesey, France the Wedding are sorted. Blackpool should be easily squeezed in, and the rest... well, I'll do my best! I have until the 2nd week in September to cram it all in!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
