    Happy New Year!

    This year did something a bit different for New Year!  Firstly, I took the kids shopping and they got to pick out brand-new pyjamas.   Then, together we decorated the activity envelopes for the night.  In each one I put a different activity that we would do at the allocated time.  To make sure we didn’t…

    Staycation Day 6

    The weather was rubbish so we took the kids to the cinema to see Planes. It was the first time Rozalynd has been to the cinema and she did okay! The movie was cute but a bit formulaic and a rehash of Cars. But it was still sweet. After dinner Andrew made us banana splits!…

    Lazy day around the house. Although I did reserve an Ancona Bantam for our flock! Yay!  I’m also hoping to get something like a Welsummer and something like an Araucana that way all the chickens lay different coloured eggs! Luther finally worked on his school holiday journal. He’s getting really good at illustrating his stories!

    We took the kids swimming at The Triangle in Burgess Hill. It was sweet. After we got home Andrew made some Nutella Banana bites while Rosie spent some unsuccessful time on the toilet. I love how Zuzu kept us company!

    Rosie’s first ever bike ride! She did really well! Luther thought the Cuckoo Trail was too bumpy, but he just lacks confidence since his training wheels were raised. He’ll figure it out soon enough.

    Stanmer Park with rockets

    We went to Stanmer Park today to have a picnic with Daddy during his lunch. We took a stomp rocket Luther got for his birthday and it was a huge hit with all of us!! Plus, I saw some of the most beautiful clouds I’ve ever seen in my whole life; honestly. Despite my best…

    Just testing out a new app called Clipper. It doesn’t have all the fine controls I might hope for, but I’m happy with the result!
