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!

On the other hand I’m generally starting . . . → Read More: The last week of the Summer Holidays 2014
Thanks to the chickenpox which plagued the start of our Summer holidays we didn’t get to spend as much time with our friends as we would have liked to but we managed to catch up with them before we were heading off for our final holiday of the Summer.
On a cloudy afternoon we . . . → Read More: Burghley House with friends . . .
