M is for Mud Kitchen on a Budget

There are some pretty amazing Mud Kitchen creations out there! I have a whole board of them devoted on Pinterest page. I love them all and considering I have a plumber to help acquire some scraps I can’t quite bring myself to ask him to build me the Robot a …

Lots of Love this Week #abc123challenge

Normally I get to the end of the week and I feel really deflated and struggle to start these posts off with the enthusiasm it needs to get me going.  This week however I have loved.  Everything has just felt right.  Like it was meant to be.  I have loved …

L is for Lego Play

Growing up I remember my brother having all the Lego. Loads of it. On rare occasions I remember getting to play with it.  Not until I was a lot older because of all the bits.  For the Robots 1st Christmas he got given a set of Lego Duplo.  At 6 …

Keeping Up #abc123challenge

There was one comment on last weeks round up post from my blogger friend who said “reading through the lines it’s been a tough week”. She is spot on, I don’t like to dwell on it much though because I like to write off the bad days as just that, …

The Long Game

I need to keep telling myself about the long game. Everything I am working towards is my long game goal. The reason I blog, the reason I create, the reason I make. The Long Game. What am I going on about I hear you ask? The time when my kids …

K is for Playing with Keys

When I was trying to come up with an idea for play and the Letter K I kept on coming back to the kitchen or keep fit.  Kitchen play is something I do too often and I would be making stuff up if I told you I was keeping fit …

Jumping Through It #Abc123challenge

The Easter holidays has almost come to an end now, the Easter bunny did not visit us, but the Robot has discovered his love of jumping so we have our own bunny.  I swear he is trying to hop everywhere.  It’s been a weird old slog the past 3 weeks …

It’s Definitely Spring 

The Letter I for a title today, it’s a bit of a cheat word for this weeks abc123challenge round-up.  We’re not as organised this week either. My best friend came to visit us on Friday so I’ve not had the usual time to write.  I’m sat in a cafe with …

I is for Ice Play

The last time we did the #ABC123Challenge we did ice play for I. This time round was a completely different experience. Ice play is more fun the older you are! The set up for ice play is one to prepare in advance.  Out freezer is in the cellar which is …

It’s Hard to Put My Finger On It

I’ve gone for a walk. Left the kids with Dave and headed out alone with my thoughts. It’s sunny the birds are singing the air is crisp, a slight breeze. It’s a perfect spring day. I’m sat on my favourite bench (the one with the little house), ducks are approaching, …

Holiday Special – London #abc123challenge

H is for Holiday!  We went to London for a long weekend last week.  It has to be our first proper break away since baby CABS was born and it was well overdue.  The short Winter months with a newborn have dragged and we can see the spring in plain …

H is for Home Play Day

Sometimes you just get stuck at home on a home play day.  We’re not very good at being in all day.  If it’s the weekend then it’s even worse. Dave is hopeless at staying in and we’re always on the go at the weekend because of it. There are times …

G is For Growing Cress

Before I had kids I used to allotment and volunteer in GirlGuiding.  I always used to want to share my love of the outdoors with my Brownies and Guides and would often find ways to get them growing things.  Most often growing cress! Unfortunately due to moving and the demands …

It’s Friday when I normally try write-up my round-ups. The perfect day for a letter F.  As usual the week has flown by faster than ever. We’ve had plenty of fun but I clicked my neck one morning half way through the week so I’ve had a not so pleasant …
