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
With fussy eating children we have to make sure that we give our Beans vitamin supplements to keep them strong and healthy. Brightstart is the new kid on the block as far as children’s vitamins are concerned. Brightstart is the new Vitamin D3 for infants from Quest Vitamins and it is head and shoulders above . . . → Read More: Brightstart – the smart parent’s choice for smart kids
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?

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.

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!!”
