    Dog Walking Life with Bramble – one year on . . .

    Bramble has been a member of the Mummy Matters family for over a year now and has settled in like a dream, it feels like he has always been here. That’s not to say there haven’t been teething troubles as any owner of pets will know it isn’t always plain sailing and one dog isn’t […]

    Lillie’s Birthday Camping Party Weekend

    As Lillie’s 10th Birthday approached this year I’ll admit I was totally stumped as to what to do for her to celebrate with her friends. She’s had craft parties, soft play, rollerskating, swimming and horse-riding parties in the past. Now we needed something that was a little bit more grown up but still fun. I […]

    Who knew a family walk in mud could be so traumatic?

    Sunday morning here was a beautiful (but freezing cold) sunny morning. We pretty much spent our morning snuggled up at home chilling out which isn’t something we do often. As a family we are always running about here and there, seeing people, doing jobs or getting to clubs/parties/events and the like. This year I want […]

    A Birthday in the Bluebells for Nanna

    Last week saw the start of lots of birthday celebrations. First off on Sunday we were celebrating Nanna (my Mum’s) Birthday and the Beans were so excited.

    Pirates, Plasters and a Picnic in the Park

    The Summer holidays have crept up on me again this year, I just don’t know where this last term has gone. With the approaching Summer holidays comes a sad realisation for me too, things are about to change. These are my last few weeks with my boys at home together two days a week because […]

    My #CountryKids have been enjoying the outdoors . . .

    If you don’t count the odd rain shower here and there or the couple of cool, windy days at the start of last week it was mostly a beautiful week weather-wise. I was feeling particularly chilly on Wednesday but that didn’t deter Jelly Bean from playing outside. Jelly Bean loves water play and has been […]

    Me & Mine – A walk through the Bluebells (Rutland Water)

    Spring is perhaps my most favourite of seasons, new life is springing, new flowers are growing and even in the darkness of a woodland floor you can see a carpet of bluebells which look so beautiful. I have been so busy just recently with one thing or another I haven’t had a chance to share […]
