Our Weekly Roundup #24

  • This week I went along to my first ever event as a blogger; it was the launch of the Booths Christmas range at one of their Cumbrian stores. I was really nervous as I didn’t know what to expect and I was completely out of my comfort zone, but it was really interesting and I hope it’s the first of many. I met fellow blogger Steph from Mental Parentals, and even though we’d never met before I still felt like she was a familiar face just from reading her blog!

Our Weekly Roundup #23

It’s October, people! I’m not quite sure how that happened, as it feels like we have barely been in 2016 for five minutes, but it does mean that we are on the countdown to Halloween and of course Christmas. It might be almost 3 months away but the Christmas cards are lining the shelves already and the first of October kind of feels like we can officially start planning for the festive season.

We haven’t done a roundup for a while as we have been on holiday. We had an amazing time in Portugal and Izzy was excited to go back to school and tell all her friends about how she kissed a dolphin – the highlight of the holiday! She took a photo in for show and tell and has been proudly telling anyone who would listen all about it.

Our Weekly Roundup #22

As Facebook is taken over with photos of excited/terrified children in too-big jumpers, it can only mean one thing – its back to school time!

While we have enjoyed the Summer holidays and I’ve tried to make the most of having some extra time with Izzy, the return to school is a welcome one. Izzy has been missing her friends and has been desperate to get back to the playground.

Our Weekly Roundup #21

  • The highlight of this week for Izzy was going to her first ever football match. She’s a Manchester City fan (influenced by Daddy of course) and went to see the City Women’s match on Sunday. She has decided that her favourite player is Izzy Christiansen, if only because they share the same name, so she got number 11 on the back of her shirt in tribute.

It’s been another couple of busy weeks. We’ve packed quite a lot in with a trip to Manchester, visits to the aquarium and farm, swimming and a show.
