Our Weekly Roundup #15: Happy 2nd Birthday Clara

DSC_0824This week Clara turned 2. She’s been talking about her birthday for the past couple of weeks, telling everyone what cake she was having and singing happy birthday to herself randomly!

Izzy was at school on Clara’s birthday so Hubby took the day off and we made the most of some rare time just the 3 of us. We took Clara swimming, and then to pick her birthday balloon. She chose a massive Minnie Mouse balloon which then had to come all round town with us. We had babycino treats at Costa before picking Izzy up for the school Spring fayre. Later we all went for tea together and before bed the 2 girls were running around dressed as Neverland fairies playing in a new princess tent. Clara was over the moon with the celebrations and Izzy was really proud and telling everyone that it was her little sister’s birthday.

Halloween Fun

Looking for some inspiration for Halloween? Try a few of these activities for a spooky celebration.


1. Carve some pumpkins. Younger kids can draw faces onto the pumpkins for the grown ups to carve. Izzy drew lots of little teeth on hers just to make it hard for me! Instead of candles, you could use battery operated tea lights or glow sticks.

1.Β Teach kids about food and plantlife by helping them to grow their own. We are currently growing tomatoes, sweet peppers and coriander, and Izzy loves watering them and seeing how much they have grown. (more…)

This week… 20-26 July

This week it was the wedding of one of my good friends. It was a fantastic wedding, in a beautifully decorated barn and everyone looked like they were having a really good time. It was great to catch up with old friends – it’s hard to see each other when we live 1 mile apart thanks to conflicting calendars – let alone when many are spread across the country and beyond!
