Well that’s one week of the holidays done and one to go! We’ve actually had a really good, chilled out week. I’d even go so far as to say this is the best holiday we’ve had since Toby started school, certainly in terms of how well the boys have got on with each other. Read more

Not-so-hidden away in the South of Portugal sits the Algarve; a small region with a very big reputation across Europe.
Especially in the last ten years, the Algarve has become one of the continent’s very best family destinations, with 4.2 million guests visiting in 2018, making up a fifth of all visitors to Portugal. Read more
We have made it through the last week of term and we’re all definitely ready for the holidays, well except Barry who has got to work for another week before he gets any time off! He has just had three days in London though so I don’t think he can complain too much! Read more
We are definitely past the baby days in our house now (and I can promise we won’t be going back there again!) but if you are expecting the patter of tiny feet soon, or you have a baby in your family then I wanted to share something that you may find very handy to have – the Bounty App. Read more
You may have come to my blog previously to find out more about Exante and how I have used their meal replacement products in the past, but today I have news of an exciting new product.

I’ve written quite a bit in the past about the various swimming lessons Toby and Gabe have done. We have done various different lessons with them over the last five years so I thought it might be interesting to do a post about their experiences of learning to swim. Read more
It’s been another quiet week for us (I seem to say that every week, but we really don’t do much during term time!) I spent the second half of the week baking a cake for my dad and then on Saturday night we went out for a meal to celebrate his 70th birthday. Read more
We’ve not done much this week. The weather has been awful, like much of the rest of the country, so apart from school, swimming lessons and Gabe’s singing group and soft play we haven’t really been anywhere.
There’s been a lot of LEGO play this week, and a fair bit of screen time but the boys have been happy and have actually been playing really well together lately. Read more
