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, …

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 …

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 …

Fun and Fast #ABC123Challenge

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 …

The Stick Man at Brockholes Nature Reserve The other day which feels like a long time ago now the Robot, CABS and I went on an adventure to find the Stick man at Brockholes Nature Reserve.  It was half term for us and we were meeting up with friends who …

Day Out, Before the Cold! #abc123challenge

I’m pretty sure you and the rest of the UK has noticed the change in weather! One that is super freezing and more… we’ve not really been hampered by snow here which is pretty normal. We have experienced the cold though. Very very cold! This means we’ve not ventured out …

The Many Stages of Robot

It was Fiona at Coombe Mill that sparked an interest in creating this blog post.  She has watched, through my blog, the Robot grow into the fun-loving outdoor little boy that he’s become.  It was her comment about him being sat in a back pack, to short walks, to the …

The East Lancashire Railway

On a cold and wet January Sunday we jumped in the car and went to visit The East Lancashire Railway. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll have worked out that Dave and now the Robot have a thing about trains. The steamier the better….

Looking For The Moon

Looking for the moon had become one of my favourite activities to do with the Robot.  Every time we need a bit of fresh air we put on our coats and head outside to look for the daytime moon.  The best bit is that now baby Sister is here we …

Getting Out

A moment of clarity…  It took till Boxing Day to realise that we were stuck in a bit of a newborn/pregnancy rut. Where getting out was too much like hard work and when we did do the getting out we just did the same old stuff.  Going to the park …

Surviving A Long Train Journey With A Toddler – NO SCREENS!

We’re seasoned train travellers with our little Robot son. He’s 2 and while most our journeys are less than an hour we have destination south coast in our sights. Visiting Family that live across country with a fun-filled 7 hour train journey. Yikes.

With Christmas round the corner quite a lot of people will be considering catching the train to visit family. I figured it would be a good time to share with you a trip I made solo with my toddler back in the Summer. I was a tad daunted to say the least but knew we’d be okay.

Happy Days October 2017

I can’t wait… Let’s take a look at some of the happy moments of the past month.
