Where did those 2 weeks go?

Wow, it’s 13th April, where did those 2 weeks go?  Monkey went back to school today after an action packed Easter holiday. I took a much-needed break from the blog to enjoy every moment with him and to have some chill out time in the evenings.

Where did those 2 weeks go

So what did we get up to?  We certainly weren’t twiddling our thumbs! We spent the first week in Cornwall on holiday at Coombe Mill before returning home to witness Monkey pedal his bike for the very first time!  We followed that up with Easter Monday fun at Blenheim Palace with our NCT group, met up with Tina and her son from The Soup Dragon Says at The Vyne in Hampshire and discovered Colourscape at Waddesdon Manor with Iona from Redpeffer and her son.  We went geo-caching for the first time near to Stonehenge with Monkey’s godmum and her daughter on Saturday which was great fun.  I celebrated my birthday yesterday at Kenilworth Castle and returned home with a stinking cold, but otherwise it was a great day.

Over the coming weeks I’ll be sharing our holiday fun in more detail.  There have been a lot of firsts and some wonderful memories were made.  So hello April!  spring certainly seems to have arrived, and I hope you enjoy following our adventures again.  I’ve got lots of reviews to share with you too as well as the day I got to meet the legend that is Mary Berry!

I’d love to hear what you’ve all been up to while I’ve been off-line.  I hope you’ve had lots of fun too?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Manic holiday time then. Not surprised you came back with a cold. Probably need to sleep after that scheduling! Glad you had a great break.

    I saw the Mary Berry feature in the Banbury Guardian, but there was only really a Mary picture and didn’t really say much about what the event was. So no being able to spot you and say ‘I know her’.

  2. I always know I need to book up with you early, otherwise there’s no chance of us meeting up! You always manage to pack in a huge amount of stuff-we enjoyed sharing some of it with you x
