I know up until now we’ve had the placement announcement and Mr S & I have had our parents evening and show around the school, but today marks the day of the new journey for little C. This afternoon he is having an hours induction at his new primary school ….. on his own. Without me, without his pre-school teachers. So yes technically he has been in the school and had had a few visits with his pre-school but today is different. Today I will be dropping him off and leaving him there for an hour with everyone else on his own. It’s big … it’s pretty huge especially for him (well and for me too!). I think it’s been on his mind a lot this week too. Up until now he’s been really excited about his ‘big school’ (that’s what he calls it) but this past week or so he’s…

Yesterday afternoon we took C to a local ‘pick your own’ farm. I love strawberries in the summer and although supermarket strawberries taste ok you don’t get many in a punnet, and because C thoroughly enjoyed picking his own pumpkin last October. We’re really lucky to have a farm literally down the road. Once we arrived we collected a punnet and went off to find the strawberry patch (there were loads!) We had SO much fun. It’s funny how a simple little half an hour doing something so simple can be so enjoyable. I loved watching C’s rummaging through the bushes and watching his little face get all excited when he found a nice big ripe strawberry. It didn’t take us long to fill the punnet and to be honest, I wasn’t planning on filling it all the way up but he was having so much fun. We took our filled…

We are now in June … the start of the Summer has begun (well according to the gorgeous sunny weather we currently have it’s arrived) I love where we live especially during the Summer – there is so much to do and seeing as it’s the Summer before C starts school I intend on having a much fun as possible. Here are some of the things i’m most looking forward to getting up to in our local area (in no particular order and there are far too many to list) Crab Fishing – There’s a Quay literally a few minutes drive away. We tend to go of an evening when it’s a bit cooler and the scenery is beautiful, especially when the sun is setting. We catch the crabs with crab lines and nets (using fish as bait) and then pop them back into the water when we’re finished. It’s…

We are so lucky only living 30 minutes drive away from the UK’s number one family theme park. Paultons Park family theme park is situated near Romsey in Hampshire. With 0ver 70 attractions it is also the home of the Worlds only Peppa Pig World. Paultons Park is opened from February through to the middle of November. Paultons Park then operates their Christmas themed event from the middle of November until the end of December. All of their opening times can be found on their website. On arrival, you will notice there is plenty of parking and after a short walk, you will come to the main entrance where you will find toilets, the tickets booths and the turnstiles to enter Paultons. Once you’re through the turnstiles you will be in the main entrance to the park. On the right is their main restaurant ‘The Wild Forest’ and to your right…
