It’s been 2 weeks since I last joined in with Little Loves, and last weekend was all about the little lady heading off to Scout Camp in Bangor. This meant that I got to enjoy some much needed time with the husband, and what better way than enjoying Sunday lunch together followed by a walk.

I started this a few weeks ago, and feels a little strange reading a Christmas book in February.

Whilst Katie was at Scout camp we introduced the teen to The Hangover films. I LOVE the films, which I suspect has something to do with Bradley Cooper looking mighty fine in them. The teen thought the films were hilarious, and it was nice spending time with him whilst his sister was away.


Taking full advantage of Katie being away, I ‘made’ her bedroom nice and tidy again. She has the box bedroom, and as she is such a hoarder her room was looking really cluttered. I might have been tidying her bedroom on a Saturday night (with a few gins to keep me going) but it was SO good for the soul.

Lots of tales from Scout camp. I love that the kids are independent enough to go off and have their own adventures without us. There were stories of a 5 hour hike, lunch by a waterfall, archery lessons, climbing wall and of course late nights and early starts. Thank you to all the wonderful leaders who give up their time and make amazing memories for the kids.

Have you heard of Everything 5 pound ? No I hadn’t either until I read about it on Money Saving Expert. If you hadn’t guessed, it sells everything for a fiver. Clothes, shoes and home products are discontinued stock, and it’s pot luck which store the item has come from. I decided to ‘test the water’ and order a few tops, and I was really impressed with the quality. Certainly worth a fiver each.

And Lastly

It’s the last day of term today, and the kids are looking forward to breaking up for a week. The past few weeks have been full of tests, mock SATS and work experience so they deserve some down time. We are off to Bath on Monday and we can’t wait as it will be our first visit to the historic city. Have a great week x
