The Easter holidays are coming to an end, and this year it has been slightly different for us. We usually spend a week in Greece at our favourite hotel, but this year we stayed at home due to the impending GCSEs. The teen has been in school nearly every day over the holidays, and thankfully he doesn’t seem to mind. He has been balancing revision with hanging out with his mates, and time on his beloved PlayStation. We did manage a trip to Shrewsbury over the Easter weekend, and it was lovely to get away for a few days.

Lots of information on Bath. As it was our first time in this beautiful city, we gathered up lots of leaflets to plan our days. We had fun exploring the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and a fabulous bus tour around the city.

It’s been a few months since I joined in with Julia’s challenge of showcasing 5 things under £5. Of course last month was all about the sales, and I bagged a few bargains. Plus I discovered how fantastic the home section is in Primark, and more importantly how cheap it is. So here are my top 5, and please do pop over to Rainbeaubelle to see what everybody else has been buying.

Five under five

Everybody needs a pineapple in their life, right. My daughter spotted this in the clearance section at TK Maxx, and she just knew that I would buy it at the bargain price of £5.… Continue reading

5 under £5

I had all good intentions of joining in with this fantastic linky from the lovely Julia at Rainbeaubelle last month, but time seemed to just run away. The idea behind it is you choose 5 things that you have purchased for £5 and under. Obviously not boring stuff like washing liquid and tins of beans, but lovely things that have made you smile. So here are my five items under £5.
