I’m like a child in a sweet shop at Christmas. I get really excited, I love the whole run up to Christmas, the shopping, the wrapping, but most importantly making the house look all Christmassy. We haven’t put our decorations up yet, what will illness and finding time, it hasn’t happened yet. This weekend however the decorations are going up! Since the children have come along we have always involved them with putting the decorations up. They have so much fun decorating the tree – I sometimes have to do a little altering after. As J is only just two I imagine his input wont be that productive. Last year he enjoyed touching the tree, a lot! Hence a lot of the decorations were higher up on the tree. Fingers crossed, things will be different this year. I try to buy a few new Christmas decorations each year, replace some of the… View Post
Today we went to Crealy, in Devon, for a few hours. It was supposed to be a family day out. But the youngest is really poorly, so it ended up being a girls day out. I normally only post one photo and with no writing, but today is the exception. We loved all the rides. Today, however we also spent a lot of time in the nature trail. Going over the rickety bridges and all the high up climbing equipment. I felt like I was part of the’ I’m a Celebrity Get Me out of here’. Minus the bug eating! We had a great day and we both enjoyed ‘girls’ time.
It’s that time of year when friends get together and get festive, offices have Christmas parties and people enjoy eating out. Finding somewhere that everyone will enjoy is always tricky when organising a meal out. Bill’s is the perfect venue! Last weekend I visited Bill’s in Exeter to try out their new Christmas menu. And what a wonderful afternoon it was. I took along fellow blogger, Natalie from Mummy, But Still Me and we had a blast. Great company and exceptionally tasty food. It was the perfect combination. Bill’s wasn’t somewhere I would have thought about for a Christmas meal, however let me tell you.. Bill’s have put together the most amazingly tasty Christmas menu. For the Christmas menu you are asked to email your orders in advance. I was pleasantly surprised to see plenty of choice with several unexpected dishes alongside the Christmas classics. For instance there’s Camembert and Bacon Beef Burger on… View Post

We are all aware of how important it is to keep our homes safe. We take good care of our belongings whilst out and about and the prospect of our homes burgled is abhorrent. But how many of us think about keeping our garden secure. It should be one of our major concerns, especially if you have nice garden furniture and expensive equipment. Unfortunately Burglars will take what ever they can get their hands on. With Burglaries on the rise is important to make sure your garden is equally as safe as your home. Did you know that between July 2016 and June 2017, almost 400,000 homes were burgled in the UK – and those are just the incidents that were reported the police? London was the most heavily impacted, hosting 80% of the postal codes who reported break-ins and domestic thefts. Not all burglaries take the form of… View Post
