First day of school


Off he goes…………………………….


Into the classroom without a backwards glance at Mummy or Daddy!

Came home as happy as when he went in, a good first day, smiles all round!


Summer Recap


I can’t believe we’re at the end of the Summer Holidays already, ¬†Tuesday, my girl will begin year ten and my little man will start his Reception year.

With the weather having not been on our side we haven’t done a lot of things we’d planned and instead a lot of time has been spent at home just pottering around but here’s a quick look at some of the things we managed to do.

Enjoying a boat ride and den building at Bristol Harbour Festival

Marveling at the Street Art in Bristol

Making the most of what little sunshine we had and chilling in the garden with my girl

Building a Bug Hotel

Filling the paddling pool

Circus fun

Searching for crabs

Playing in the park

Enjoying the one and only ice cream of the Summer

There’s also been ……………………………………..

Lots of coffee shop visits

Lunches out

Dvd watching


Den building

A visit to Newport for a fast track passport for my girl who then flew out to Spain with a friend and her family.

With Summer over I now welcome Autumn with open arms, my most favourite season!

Rainy Bank Holiday


I wasn’t surprised to wake hearing the rain on the windows this morning

Just another typical bank holiday but it certainly put a stop to my plans of a walk along the beach searching for sea glass and shells.

Instead it was more of a knitting, reading and journalling day for Me

Whilst the children baked cakes (which seem to of disappeared before I was able to take photos)

Knitting………………………….a cowl

On my kindle…………………………. The Memory Keepers Daughter

Sari journal

I think a lazy relaxing day should continue into the evening so having¬†finally down loaded ‘love film’ I think a movie and a mug of hot milk with a chocolate spoon is in order!

Hello world!


After four years of blogging the time had come to start afresh, myself and my life have changed so much in that time that I felt I wasn’t that person anymore.

It feels good to start over!

So why pine cones and feathers?

After days of trying to find the perfect name, it was staring at Me the whole time.

Right in front of Me, on my table there sat a pine cone and a feather, treasures from our walks bought home by my little man.

A reminder of our love of nature and finding beauty along the way!
