... Feeling Festive ...

So I know its only November buuuuuuut we've put our first tree up! I know, I know its early! I'm usually one of those people who mock the people who put up their trees in November but I just couldn't help it.
We went out to Next last week to have a coffee and a browse around the Christmas decks and check out the Christmas PJs and whilst walking round we saw this light up star and the thin tree.
We were thinking we weren't going to be able to get a tree in the lounge this year as we had a move around in the summer and there was no longer the space for a tree but seeing as this one was thin we decided it would fit perfectly beside the fireplace.
We went home and measured the space first to make sure it would fit and then ordered it for next day delivery and because it was Black Friday we got free delivery :)

It fits perfectly and I'm completely in love with the star. We've also decide we probably won't decorate this tree aa it looks nice enough with just the…

When I heard about a toy that tidied up I was more than excited about trying it out. The boys love playing but are a little resistant when I suggest tidying up after themselves, so I was rather keen to seen if Dusty would be my secret weapon to combating this!

The boys were all very impressed with Dusty and were keen to play with him, when I threw down a pile of Lego they looked at me like I was going crazy. When I told them to drive o…

... Hunstanton Lighthouse ...

On Sunday we decided to pop into Hunstanton for a family Costa Coffee trip, something that doesn't happen often as usually its only me and Jon who going into Costa but seeing as we had nothing planned it sounded like a good way to spend the morning.

The boys were brilliant and they all enjoyed a chocolate baby chino and were very nicely given a flake and a marshmallow! Which I think made their day. Jon and I enjoyed our normal coffees and it was nice to be out spending some time with the boys away from the house.

As it was such a beautiful day we decided we would go and see the lighthouse. We've only ever driven past it before so it was nice to get out and stretch out legs and let the boys run riot which I got some snaps!

The boys all played chase and whilst running after Ru we met a lovely couple with some gorgeous dogs that we all made friends with.

After a while the boys all started to complain their hands were cold so we headed back to the van and drove home to warm up an…

Makes 5 free standing mini scenes Recommended age 5+


I decided to sit down with Ru after nursery whilst all the other boys were still at school and design our first ever 3d mini scene. I let Ru pick which design we would do and he chose the cute little bunny. The thought of making a pink bunny made him very happy and he sat there clapping whilst I sorted out all the beads into the bead storage pot.



Once the beads were all in a separate section we started on our design, Ru would get the right coloured bead and hand it to me.

Occasionally he did place the bead but he seemed to enjoy picking out the …

...Wedding Photos...

We just received our professional photos! Over 700 of them, I'm not sharing them all but he a just a handful of my favourites. Jon and I both hate our photograph being taken so we were extra judgemental over all the ones of ourselves but the more I look at them, the more I start to like them.

Matthew from Mdknightphotography really was great and managed to capture everyone having a great time.
The day was amazing and it couldn't have gone any better.  My mum did a fab job at being my wedding planner and without her it wouldn't have been what it was.
It wasn't a big do it was very small and low key, but that is just how Jon and I wanted it to be. I'm not going to say too much as I could ramble on for years.  I'll probably write a proper post when I find the right words on how to describe it.
Enjoy x
