We were away last weekend and I didn’t get the chance to link up with Little Loves. So this is a look back at our past fortnight, which of course has been all about the summer holidays. We have enjoyed an evening in New Brighton, daughter has been to a sleepover and we had a mini break away in Blackpool. Check out the view from our hotel room.

Absolutely nothing. Totally failing at my aim to read 3 books during the summer holidays.


We don’t often watch television all together, mainly because the kids can never agree on a show or film. But last Sunday we all sat down and watched Shed of the Year hosted by George Clark. It got us talking about what we would put in our ideal shed. The teen would have a PlayStation shed, Katie would turn her shed into a clothes shop and café, the husband would have a shed pub, and I would have a cute Cath Kidston shed (no men or kids allowed). What would be in your ideal shed?


Rollercoasters whizzing past our hotel room when we stayed in the Big Blue Hotel in Blackpool. Our room with a view certainly kept us all mesmerised, and it was fun listening to all the shrieks and laughter.

I have been busy making plans for our trip to London in a few weeks. I have booked tickets to see Horrible Histories at The Apollo, and I am very excited as it will be my very first show in the capital. We also have plans to do a night time bus tour of London, eat at Planet Hollywood and possibly a trip to Shrek’s Adventure.


I can no longer get away with choosing my daughter’s clothes now, and she loves to go shopping. Her style has changed in the past year and this is her latest outfit she picked out. The leggings are from Debenhams and were £7, and the vest top was £4 from Peacocks.

And lastly

We have no plans for this weekend, and I believe the sun could be making a welcome return. Have a great week x
