Day 05 // 30 Days Wild

C has been to pre-school this morning and there are some lovely flowers growing along the path we walk. It's been good to see the changes in our own garden since Friday. It's always a bit more than you think. We haven't had any rain up here either, which is really quite surprising! Some of … Continue reading Day 05 // 30 Days Wild

Day 04 // 30 Days Wild

Most of the day we spent driving, The views across open country side were great, but unfortunately I didn't capture any pictures. The toddler was over tired from all of the excitement at the weekend, that he had a full on meltdown a lot of the way home. We stopped loads but not to admire … Continue reading Day 04 // 30 Days Wild

Day 03 // 30 Days Wild

Day 3, I haven't stopped, I've been out and about and I'm home now from visiting family. It was nice to have a different garden to explore and discover in. The small pond back at my families house has been cleaned completely. There were lots of tadpoles discovered and even a little newt family. Here's … Continue reading Day 03 // 30 Days Wild

Day 02 // 30 Days Wild

Just a quick one today, we are visiting family in the East of England. We didn't arrive until about 12am so our nature encounter happened really early. Turns out the wildlife just throw themselves at you down here, no hunting required. We befriended a Cockchafer. He's having a rest on the Hubby's hand. Quite an … Continue reading Day 02 // 30 Days Wild

Day 01 // 30 Days Wild

So for day one of our random act of wildness the toddler and hubby built a tiny insect house (I did say he would get involved unknown to him!).

The Sun is Shining

I've been quiet over here for a bit oops. The sun has graced us with its Presence and I've got the sunburn to show for it! That's what I get for making sure the boy has sunscreen on and forgetting about myself! I've been super busy, we've been transforming our back garden and already we … Continue reading The Sun is Shining

Easter Weekend

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Was the Easter Bunny generous? My 3 year old managed to accumulate 10 eggs off 4 people! I'm sure the dentist will be delighted. As always I had high hopes for the leisurely weekend. Soon to be dashed by the realisation that actually we had … Continue reading Easter Weekend

‘Re-brand’

Just a little post to say I have slightly 're-branded' my blog. I had been using an old domain name that I thought was fun, but it didn't really suit the vibe of this blog. I wanted to name it so that it was obvious (at least I hope it is!) what my blog would … Continue reading ‘Re-brand’

Mini update: Seedlings despite the weather.

Apologies for how quiet I have been. With all the snow we have had, I've been unable to get up to the allotment. Hopefully that will change this weekend and I will be able to post a better update. I got bored of waiting for warmer weather so have started some seeds off at home … Continue reading Mini update: Seedlings despite the weather.
