Wow what a fab weekend! It’s been full on as usual but we’ve had a brilliant one. The weather has been a.m.a.z.i.n.g too. Saturday 13th August 2016 We had a child free day!!!!! That hasn’t happened in about two years. C went to spend the day with my sister & nephew & L has her friend over from Ireland to stay with us so we all drove to West Quay in Southampton – the girls went off on their own for a few hours and we did the same!! It was so lovely to be able to have lunch just the two if us and have a nice stroll round the shops and IKEA. West Quay have dedicated the entire third floor to food places & restaurants so we had an abundance to choose from. We decided to try something different, go somewhere we’ve never eaten before … Wagamama. I…

Another weekend has gone and another busy weekend it was too. Here is what we got upto for our weekend. On Saturday we decided to take C to the local ‘Snowtrax’ dry ski slopes, he absolutely loves the ringos there. We went last December for L to attend a Birthday party & he took one look at them and was desperate to have a go. I was terrified when he had his first go, he didn’t seem phased at all at the height slop or how fast they went down. The ringos are the perfect activity for him to go on. They are from ages 3 and up whereas the ski bobs are for children 6 and above. I actually might have a go the next time we take him .. they do look like lots of fun. He even managed to use the lift rope to bring him back…

It’s a little late I know but we had another busy weekend (and a busy few days to to the start of this week) Saturday was another nice day weather wise, the sun was shining and although it wasn’t as nice as the previous weekend it was still warm. We took C swimming, which he adores. He’s so confident in the water and he’s not afraid of going under which I think is good for him to be used too. Sundays weather wasn’t brilliant – it started off nice and sunny but the afternoon turned a little cloudy. Not too bad though and we still had a lovely day. In our local town there was a Supercar show so we headed in for a look around some very expensive cars! The high street was closed off with International food & drink stalls, live bands and children’s rides. We didn’t stay…

The sun finally shone in all it’s glory this weekend so we made sure we made the most of it. It sure feels like Winter has been here for too long! We kicked the weekend off by going to the Christchurch Food & Wine Festival. It’s an annual event and we were really looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere and smelling the wonderful smells from all sorts of yummy food. It was so hard not to just buy a little something from each stall we passed. We walked down to the Quay where they had some children’s entertainment and a live band (who were really good) and we sat and ate pizza admiring the view and enjoying the sun (we won’t mention I had already tried some Chinese from a stall in the high street beforehand!) We then spent the afternoon in the garden, I read…
