As always I was sad to say goodbye to the summer holidays. We have had a fantastic time, and ended the holidays with a break away at Forest Holidays in Nottinghamshire. This is what else we have been up to over the past fortnight.

The Ikea catalogue popped through my letterbox this week, so it would have been rude not to have stuck the kettle on and read it with a cuppa. We had an Ikea delivery yesterday, and husband is currently in flat pack hell building Katie’s new bed. I am staying well out of the way, and my job for the day is tea lady.


I went to the cinema on Bank Holiday Monday and watched Bad Moms with my best friend. Seriously, if you have not watched this film grab your girlfriends and GO. It stars Mila Kunis (girl crush) and is hilarious from start to finish. I am definitely team Bad Moms.


Move along, nothing to see in the Made section this week.


The sound of parents up and down the country cheering for the return of school. Whilst I have loved our summer holidays, after 7 and a half weeks of the kids being off, I was craving the routine of life. Katie is about to embark on her final year at primary school (sob), and here is the obligatory back to school photo.

It has been a week of wearing my swimming costume. I have got straight back into my routine of swimming at David Lloyd, and we also spent last weekend more or less in a hot tub. I won’t subject you to a picture of me in a costume, so here is our hot tub and our Forest Holidays duck.

I celebrated my 3rd blog birthday this week. Thank you to my husband who always gives me the time to blog. The kids for not moaning too much when I stop every 5 seconds to take a photo. And after 3 years they all finally know the blogger rule. Never start eating a meal in a restaurant, until it has been photographed several times! Thanks guys x
