Going in search of The Gruffalo's Child

Going in search of The Gruffalo’s Child #weloveforests

We spent a long weekend in Bristol last weekend to celebrate Daddy P hitting 50 on Monday. Having been stuck on the M4 on the way down, we really wanted to avoid a repeat on his birthday.  Going in search of The Gruffalo’s Child at Westonbirt Arboretum and trying out the STIHL Treetop walk seemed…Continue reading Going in search of The Gruffalo’s Child #weloveforests

A woodland walk and crafting session

A woodland walk and crafting session #weloveforests

Monkey and I were in need of some fresh air last Saturday.  We decided on a woodland walk and crafting session and headed off to the woods.  Monkey’s been asking me to make him a dream catcher for ages, so I suggested we incorporate a few of his favourite things into our design.  Armed with a bag…Continue reading A woodland walk and crafting session #weloveforests

Last Sunday we went to Westonbirt Arboretum for the first time, we took Daddy P’s sister and her husband with us and it would appear that the rest of England decided to join us for the day.  I’m quite excited that so many people appear to love trees, nature and autumnal colours.  Honestly, it was…Continue reading Silent Sunday My Sunday Photo 011115

Monkey makes it to Countryfile

Monkey makes it to Countryfile

You may remember that Monkey and I visited Wendover Woods recently to try out the Gruffalo trail that was being filmed by the BBC. It was a totally magical day and Monkey hasn’t stopped talking about it since.  We’d been told that the BBC Countryfile programme would be airing on 1st June.  We always record…Continue reading Monkey makes it to Countryfile
