Our favourite haunt #CountryKids

Our favourite haunt

There are so many things I have to thank Monkey for, I have learnt so much these last 4 years about all sorts of things.  If you take the time, children really help you open your eyes, view the world differently.  I realised just how much I took for granted. … Continue reading »

Going back to the Palace

As regular readers will know, we live fairly close to Blenheim Palace, and it’s been a regular haunt since Monkey was born.  The Saturday before last saw us going back to the Palace with one of our NCT families.  The sun was out (in the most part), the rain stayed… Continue reading »

This week we have actually been to the Palace two days running!  On Thursday we met Monkey’s God Mum and her 7-year-old daughter there for their first visit.  It wasn’t pouring down with rain, but it… Continue reading »

Scared of spiders? Not us, we’ve got an Entomologist in the family :)

When you’re a child you don’t really appreciate how your parents’ interests can impact on your life. I haven’t got my Mum’s green fingers and I’ve no interest in being a football referee like Dad but I have taken a few things onboard. I have learnt so many things from… Continue reading »
