Oh May, you are definitely my favourite month of the year.  A month which will see us banish our coats until Autumn (hopefully), and wave goodbye to our winter boots. A month that graces us with not one, but TWO bank holidays. And hopefully the month where the sun decides to shine that little bit more.

Hello May

May is a month of celebration for us. On the 15th of May, it is 18 years since I met my husband (18 YEARS), and on the 12th May we will celebrate 16 years of marriage. We don’t have any firm plans yet, but I am hoping for a little weekend getaway.

And this weekend we are taking Katie to Liverpool to see The Vamps in concert. This will be the third time of seeing them live for Katie, and my second.  Husband had the joy of accompanying her last year, and this picture appeared on the Liverpool Echo Website. It still makes me smile seeing the joy on Katie’s face. Plus I don’t think Hywel has ever got over being called a  ‘Vamps fan’ at 44 lol.

And never one to miss an opportunity for a sneaky night away, we are staying at the Premier Inn at The Albert Dock.

May is also the month of Blog On. I will be heading to Manchester for my 3rd Blog On conference, and I am so excited to be catching up with blogging friends old and new. It is always a fantastic day out, and a huge shout out to Laura from Tired Mummy of Two who always puts on an amazing conference.

And at the end of May, half term. Though I am pretty sure they only went back to school about 5 minutes ago. We have some lovely things planned, and Katie and I are heading to London for an event. This is a huge thing for me, as I usually shy away from anything that is not fairly local. But when the invite popped into my inbox, I immediately emailed back and said yes.

And of course I can’t write about May without mentioning SATS. Yes the Year 6 SATS start next Monday, and Katie has been working hard towards them in school and in her SATS club. She is fairly laid back about tests, and hopefully this will still be the case next week. Good luck Katie and all the other children taking their SATS.

And not forgetting the teen. His next Karate grading is this month, and if he passes he will become a Black Belt. Just writing that down makes me immensely proud of everything he is achieved at Karate.

So a pretty busy, but lovely month ahead. What do you have planned for May ?
