Happy Days #25 – Happy Birthday!

In comparison to last week this week has been a bit of a slog.  It feels like two weeks has passed and I don’t really feel like I have achieved much.  This annoys me!  Let’s talk about the weather…  It’s been a bit nicer this week so I’ve got some …

Xanthan Gum Fun – Slime!

Pinterest is one of my favourite platforms for getting ideas of the sort of play activities to tackle with the Robot.  I’ve seen a lot about slime and I’ve really wanted to give it a go.   It’s week X of my ABC123 challenge this week and I had to reach …

A Brand New Day Vacation Round Up Half Way

It’s the middle of August and the weather hasn’t been that favorable.   We in the Two Tiny Hands household have not let the windy drizzly weather get in our way though.  We’ve been out on plenty of outings and crawled around in wet grass, walked up hills and along beaches.  …

Coombe Mill Christmas special

Please don’t shoot me! I know it’s August but I really really really want to win a holiday to Coombe Mill!  Not only that, a Christmas holiday!! Living in North Lancashire, Cornwall is probably one of the most furthest destination I could pick to want to go too. I’m entranced …

Happy Days #24 When You Have a Lemur on your Back

This week has sort of flown by, can’t believe I’m writing up my happy bits already!  The Robot was a little poorly last week, after a bout of spottyness he is back to normal now and playful as ever.   We even had a collection of one year old injections to …

52 Things to do Outdoors

Here in the Two Tiny Hands household we love the OUTDOORS, so much so I wrote a piece over at Verily Victoria Vocalises about why I love it so much.  In the last 2 months I’ve written 52 reasons why I love you and 52 uses for a stick.  I …

Water Beads With a One Year Old

When I first heard about water beads I got excited.  A different material than just ordinary water to play with, brilliant.  They aren’t edible though so I bought them with, “I’ll try them and see how it goes” in mind.   The Robot now at 13 months has got really …

Happy Days #23 Party Time

The start of this week was jam packed with fun and adventure.  Unfortunately the later end of the week has ended less fun, poor Robot has picked up some mysterious illness.  Although he is happy in himself and playing as usual he’s covered in little spots and is just a …

Walk up to Bowscale Tarn

This last weekend has been all about the parties! Our go to party on Sunday was in Keswick in the Lake District at 3pm. It being fairly late in the day we had time to go exploring beforehand. We packed up a picnic lunch and headed for Mungrizedale just outside …

Happy Days #22 Get Outside

This has to be my favourite bit of the week.  Looking back on all the little things that have made me happy.   I go through some weeks where I completely fail to keep track of them on a daily basis.  This makes it a tad harder to write this post …

Bath Time Poo – Etiquette for Parents

This was going to be a blog post about all the things the Robot loves about bath time.  This kid really loves bath time!  Anything water related and he’s all there with bells and whistles on.   We’ve hit a little stumbling block though, he keeps pooing in the bath! Not …

Cycle Camping to Malham Cove

Cycle Camping to Malham Cove We haven’t been on a bike adventure since May so we decided we decided on Friday night that we should go cylce camping to Malham Cove.  Saturday morning we got up as normal with the Robot and set to packing for our trip.  We’re pretty …

Happy Days #21 Turn Down The HEAT

I’m pretty sure if you live in the UK that you would have noticed the mini heat wave we had this week.  I say mini because if you live up North like me it really was only 1 day.  Day 2 saw thunder, lightning and a whole load of rain! …

Tug Box Fun For Little One

I’m not normally a ‘how to make’ type blogger but this weeks play activity involved me making a Tug Box for the one year old tuRobot.  Basically a box with string and ribbon going through it that can be pulled back and forth. What harm can a little how to …

I Don’t Diet! How about you?

Ever since starting #ABrandNewDay I have always focused on exercise and an active lifestyle.  I’ve never really mentioned food, basically because I try not to get too hung up on it.  I don’t diet, I just try to practice healthy eating with a few bad things in moderation.  While at …
