Splinter – Weds 20th Jan 2016

By | January 20, 2016

D tried her best but she just couldn’t make the ice crack and she loved it! After a few weeks, today was the first time we’d been able to walk home from school through the “deep, dark woods”.  A combination of roadworks as we approach D’s school and heavy rain meant that either the woods […]

Friendlies – Sat 8th Aug 2015

By | August 8, 2015

Well, we did it.  We all got there to watch (what was left of T’s team following recent events) playing friendly matches together with and against other players, who may or may not end up joining the team to add some much-needed numbers. To say we all got there was a definite achievement.  D isn’t keen […]

On The Pink! Fri 19th Sept 2014

By | September 19, 2014

D is usually “in the pink” with what she wears, but today she was “on the pink”, the pink trike that is. D has never been able to ride a two-wheeled bike or a two-wheeler scooter, she hasn’t got the balance or co-ordination. She uses trikes at school so I knew one at home would […]

River – Thurs 28th Aug 2014

By | August 28, 2014

We saw a lot of this today, the River Thames, thanks to a local charity and couple of boat crew. It was a 2 hour meander up and down the river, past some absolutely amazing houses: And this boathouse shows just how high the river got in January, half way up! Which made me quite […]

Bring Me Sunshine – Fri 22nd Aug 2014

By | August 22, 2014

This was T, having a bit of a skip and a muck around after our trip out, it reminded me of the “Bring Me Sunshine” ending from old Morecambe and Wise shows (always fun to see on YouTube). D was laughing away watching her brother, running to catch up, but T is much, much faster. […]

Blackberry Crumble Squares – Sat 2nd Aug 2014 #CountryKids #KidsInTheKitchen

By | August 2, 2014

D and I have had a bit of a girlie day today, whilst the menfolk were at football. Our day has involved the Deep Dark Wood, some baking and some kitchen dancing – perfect! Earlier on in the week, we all went blackberry picking, things got a tad competitive and D and I decided to […]

I Love … #CountryKids

By | July 12, 2014

I love our little piece of the country. We’re half an hour by bus away from a busy commuter town, so close enough for a brilliant shopping centre, but far enough away to feel like we’re away from the hustle and bustle. I love the buddleia growing in the garden, providing a little pit stop […]

Looking forward – Fri 13th June 2014

By | June 13, 2014

I’ve only just realised that today is Friday 13th, after typing in the date. Unlucky for some, but probably explains why Hubbie and I have been a tad snappy with each other today, that and the massive roller coaster week we’ve just had. Anyway…. D and I had a school run with a difference today, […]

Let’s go fly.. Sun 4th May 2014

By | May 4, 2014

Today was a day when we didn’t have anything specific planned, after a busy yesterday it was preferable for T and D that we avoided crowded areas so we did this: Well, not exactly that, we’re not the Von Trapp’s after all but similar. There is a field near us, previously owned by the University. […]

Spring has sprung! Mon 24th Feb 2014

By | February 24, 2014

A much better day today for D, the sunshine always makes such a difference to her. She also had an inset day whilst T went back to school today, they individually take great delight in being off if the other isn’t, bless them!! We dropped T off and then went to the park, on the […]
