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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 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 …
