My Favourite 5 for August: Whipsnade Zoo, Shoes & Warwick Castle

The summer holidays are drawing to a close, and part of me is sad as we have had the best six weeks of fun. But I am sort of looking forward to getting back to ‘normality’ and back to work. Thea is starting preschool next month, so that will be a big change for her, and she’s raring to go. It’s going to be strange for me though – she’ll be going every morning, so I’ll have more time.

My Favourite 5 for July: Prints, Lights & End of Term Fun

July has whizzed by in a whirl of end of term fun, work and DIY. We’re currently working on our utility room, so it should be ready soon. Ava has finished school for the summer, so I’ve been busy keeping her and Thea entertained, with a little help from the list I made this time last year. I’ve also been cramming in a bit of work here and there (the joy of being self employed). Instagram Prints from SOCAL PRint Studio I recently ordered some very cute mini photo books from  ...
