You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting very much personal stuff recently. There are a couple of reasons for that, one is that Christmas is coming and I have so many great products to tell you about in case you are stuck for ideas and the other is that I just haven’t been . . . → Read More: It’s time for a change . . .
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.

By chance I saw the advertisements for the Peterborough Arts Festival and the programme looked fun, there were plenty of acts which the Beans would enjoy watching so we popped into the City on Saturday evening and again on Sunday. The Beans LOVED it, such a shame that we didn’t have time to see more . . . → Read More: Peterborough Arts Festival in Pictures

But the odd one or two will stand out for me if it is something I am interested in, if it’s something I think will benefit my . . . → Read More: Are we being fair to Dads?
We had a very busy weekend with Lollibop on Saturday and a family Christening on Sunday so Monday was all about chilling out at home doing nothing in particular. In the afternoon we had a visit from a lovely friend and her four children so that kept the Beans entertained for a while and gave . . . → Read More: Summer Holidays 2014 – 18th to 21st August
The second week of our summer holidays started out pretty good and not half as stressful as I was expecting it to be but then again I made certain ‘deals’ with myself before the week began;
