Summer 2016...


The Summer holidays came and went so quickly. 

We had a jam packed school holiday with a different adventure almost everyday. 

One of our highlights of the Summer was visiting family and heading to the beach. 

Today I am sharing some beach photos, that I never ended up having time to share. 

We wont get to see the sea now until next year again now.

Day's Out : Skegness...


How quickly has the six weeks holiday gone by? Back to school for mine next week.

We have been out and about all over the country. 

One day me and my daughter went out for a girls only day out. Just me and her. It was lovely. 

We was wondering where to go and my daughter picked the beach!! The nearest beach to us is in Skegness, a 3 hour train ride away. My mum and dad have a caravan there so it was a good reason to go and visit them.


We texted grandma and grandad to say we was on the train and coming to visit them. A good job or they would have been out for the day. ( like they were the time after this visit when my son came with us!).

Slurpy Salad...


Slurpy Salad : Making kids meal look a bit more exciting can help picky eaters tuck into new foods. Whilst it might be a bit much to create a cartoon scene for every meal, maybe spirals and ribbons will do the trick.

Mr Wasp On That Beautiful Flower : W,T,T,W Blog Hop...


Hello!! 

Happy Friday.

Welcome 2 The Weekend!!

Time to share your posts.


How pretty are these flowers?

Mr wasp decided to land on on when I was taking a picture.

I love to take pictures of bees as they do not like to sting you but I am scared of being around wasps that long!! I was just in the zone of taking pictures as he landed!!

Cream Cheese Fritters, English Summer Maple Cherries...


Cream cheese fritters, English summer maple cherries. It’s officially summer ­– the season to enjoy fresh summer fruit, al fresco dining and BBQs in the garden.

Today I have a guest post : pure maple syrup from Quebec.

With English cherries at the height of their season this month, we’ve created a recipe to showcase them in all their glory.


Our cream cheese fritters with English summer cherries and pure maple syrup from Quebec make a lovely breakfast, brunch or dessert.

What I Wore : Flowers And Birds..


Happy Saturday! How has your week been? I have been busy doing nothing and getting nowhere fast! Still buzzing from last weekend away and hypo from all the cakes and chocolate I had eaten! Also a bit of an headache from some sparkly wine...

It was so good getting back to the gym over the last few days! Weights one day, spinning the next. I really need to get back into a regular routine.


Today I am sharing another outfit from our holiday. Yeah another rainy day outfit! My daughter also picked me this top to wear when I picked her up from her new school this week, as she loves me wearing this one.

Strive Footwear Review...


A few weeks ago I was kindly asked by Strive Footwear, if I would like to try out a pair of their new premium Health and Wellness sandals. Strive sell functional, healthy footwear and they are the World’s leading foot heath care supplier to the medical market.

Think fashion meets comfort. They sell a lovely range of sandals proven to correctly support your feet with Biomechanical Footbed Technology.


I picked a lovely pair of black patent tee- post sandals. I thought these would go well with everything I wear this summer. As long as the rain stays away.

Not So Lazy Summer: What I Wore...


I see lots of people are getting ready for back to school but we still have 2 weeks of fun left here before my children go back to school. Busy, busy with lots more days out and nights away planned. 

Not to mention my last minute rush in getting all school uniforms brought!! Where would the fun be if I got it all early and not pulling my hair out every year as it is sold out!?!
