Sick #abc123challenge

Sick, sick, sick and oh oh the diarrhoea! Yup I can very much justify the use of sick in my title after the wobble last week of using a negative title in a happy post each week. S is for Sick!! We started on Sunday night with the Robot being …

S is for Smoothie

Attempting to cook in the kitchen with the Robot is pretty stressful but one thing we’ve been enjoying doing together is making a Smoothie for snack time.  It’s my ploy to get fruit and milk in him during the day in what he considers a fun treat.  I really should …

Really Rubbish #abc123challenge

I think that I’ve got into the habit of giving these weekly round ups a negative title, having a mini moan then launching into all the happy bits from the week. Really Rubbish. Are you okay with that? Really I should just have a moan post and a happy post …

R is for Reading

Reading books is something I truly believe in as a form of entertainment to my children. Books are not just for bed time and some days when I get to the end of the day and we haven’t managed an extra reading session or two I’m always a little sad. …

Quite Tough #abc123challenge

We’ve been on holiday this week just gone. I demanded to Dave that our first proper camp with the kids needed to be a lot less remote than our usual Scottish trips so we opted for Northumbria. With family and friends nearby I figured it would be better should everything …

Marcelle Medallion A Start

Marcelle Medallion The rabbit hole of the Quilty Instagram world has led me down a path I didn’t mean to recently. I spotted a sewalong for this Marcelle Medallion Quilt hosted by Nicole. I was smitten instantly. It’s a beautiful pattern of points and techniques I’m interested in trying. So …

Quoits for a Toddler

Q is for Quoits, yes, I’ve said it and who knew I’d be writing a blog post about quoits this week. It’s week Q on the #ABC123Challenge and I’ve had to come up with a play activity based around the letter Q that would be fitting for my toddler to …

Peanuts #abc123challenge

P is for Peanuts, because peanuts are small and that is what this weeks round-up is all about. The sun has been shining the air is lovely, the kids have got over their bug or whatever it was, it’s been a pleasure! With pleasurable peanuts about there be no time …

P is for Play Doh

Play Doh Those two little words Play Doh certainly have me shiver.  I try to embrace it as much as I can. I even want to be that well-intentioned Mother who makes their own “safe” play doh, but I’m not. We have the shop bought stuff, I even requested it …

Oh dear Oh dear #ABC123Challenge

Oh dear, we’ve been pretty lucky on the sick kid front this Winter. Only a few colds to really contend with. This week however the Robot and probably CABS too have been a little poorly and out of character. I genuinely have had to feel sorry for the Robot and …

O is for Obstacle Course

It almost seems a shame to do this activity as the weather has been so good but I suppose it could be adapted to anywhere with a bit of imagination! For the purpose of my O week though we decided to make an obstacle course indoors! The Obstacle Course Before …

Nice Weather and Good Moods #abc123challenge

This weeks been a big blur of nice weather and good moods. Full on explorer mode as I feel we’ve been on the go all week on adventures that would make some people quake in their boots! Our biggest and best adventure was on bank holiday Monday when Dave got …

My First Baby Clothes

My First Baby Clothes sounds like it’s going to be some sort of weird nostalgic post showing you some clothes from 30 something years ago. Do not panic there is no thrills here. What is though is my first step into making baby clothes!! One of my goals this year …

N is for Nature Hunt

We do love to get outdoors and do things and now the Robot is older his walks often mean going slow and pointing out everything. Putting this to good use one day we decided to go on a bit of a toddler nature hunt. A Nature Hunt Equipping the Robot …

My Baby CABS is Six Months Old #abc123challenge
