Hope you are all having a lovely Mother’s Day :)

I love Daffodils so this is the perfect bouquet for me from Monkey – the simple things are the best 🙂

Missing Mum on Mother’s Day

I’m looking forward to my third Mother’s Day as a Mum to Monkey.  I’ve already had a little cake and daffodil – http://wp.me/p2P6aF-4m and yesterday he came home from pre-school with a handmade card 🙂 I’m sure I’ll love whatever Monkey and his Daddy have in store for me tomorrow,… Continue reading »

Crafty Friday with Monkey

Monkey does a 5 hour session at pre-school on Friday’s and always comes home exhausted.  Being as stubborn as a mule (who knows where he gets that from??) he refuses to nap in his bed or on the sofa, and will normally run around the living room like a lunatic,… Continue reading »

Vtech Lex the T-Rex Switch and Go Dinos

I’ve decided that I’d look through Monkey’s birthday and Christmas presents from 2012 and see what is still in favour 3 months down the line!  Having seen some good write up’s on the Vtech Switch & Go Dinos range we suggested that one of our relations buy Monkey theVtech Lex… Continue reading »

A Trip to the Palace …… Blenheim Palace

More fun at the Palace

We are so lucky to have Blenheim Palace on our doorstep. Saying that, I’d only visited once before Monkey arrived, but have certainly made up for it since! Our NCT group made it our weekly Monday meet up, and we had a picnic there pretty much every week from March-October… Continue reading »

Our ‘crafty’ afternoon – my kind of gardening

With Granny’s birthday coming up we thought we’d try to do something artistic (not something that comes naturally to Mummy).  Granny loves flowers and her garden; living in Southern Spain has not dampened her enthusiasm for all things floral.  I, unfortunately don’t have her green fingers. So our crafty afternoon… Continue reading »

Mummy I need to saw your arm off!

Mummy I need to saw your arm off

I picked Monkey up from pre-school this morning – it was lovely, he ran straight into my arms and gave me a big kiss and cuddle 🙂  He was eager to get home as it is our rubbish collection day – he’s on first name terms with all the binmen…. Continue reading »

The joy of reading with my Monkey :)
