After spending many a journey on trains it may come as no surprise that the Beans are young train fanatics. It takes me back to my childhood going on the trains to London with my Mum to see my Aunt/Uncle and Cousins. Last weekend we travelled over to Ludborough near Louth in Lincolnshire to . . . → Read More: When the Beans met Santa on the Santa Special Steam Train
So last night we braved the cold (but thankfully not too wet) evening to take the Beans to watch the fireworks display at the local Rugby Club. It’s the same one that we go to every year because they put on a good display, it’s not too expensive and it’s only just up the road. . . . → Read More: Fireworks Night 2014 – what did Jelly Bean think?
Has your home been invaded by Minecraft too? Ours started some time last year when Curly first discovered Minecraft from one of his friends at school and he is still a HUGE fan of it now. During the Summer holidays he taught Little Bean and Beanie Boy how to play it too and now they . . . → Read More: What to buy for a Minecraft fan?
I am never normally one to be thankful for the Bean’s returning to school *dashes off to check previous posts* because I look forward to the school holidays and getting my Beans back, planning fun things to do and spending lots of quality time together so this half term holiday was no different.

The reason I am pondering this is because if you were to look through my photographs first, you’d be forgiven for thinking that they show happy . . . → Read More: October half term 2014 – the camera can lie!
I received a letter home from Beanie Boy’s new preschool asking if he could take it any little ‘treasures’ that he might find whilst out walking as they are talking about Autumn now. Well we often go for a walk around our village and the Beans are always bringing something home with them so last . . . → Read More: Look what we found on our Autumn walk!
You may, or may not have seen my post from yesterday but it really put a downer on my week. I have not been feeling well this week, migraines are plaguing me at the moment and since stopping breastfeeding that ‘time of the month’ has been a killer for me. Add to that an autumnal . . . → Read More: The perfect end to the week . . . Burghley House
Well, to be fair it IS Autumn and there isn’t much snow around, plus we haven’t got magical powers. BUT we have got an imagination and that’s all it takes (ok plus a few random materials from around the house) to make a den!!
I have to admit that building dens with my children was . . . → Read More: “Do you wanna build a snowman?” . . . “Nope, we want to build a den!!”
For the past couple of weeks I have been trialling a new Reward System with the Beans in an effort to encourage more favorable behavior from them. Initially it worked perfectly but last week was pretty much a write-off as they didn’t seem interested in even trying to move forwards on their charts.
