Spooky Pizza Party

I love Halloween and I'm really excited for this years as we will be celebrating it with our friends and their son. The past couple of years Wilf hasn't really gotten into it but we bought him his costume the other day and he did not want to take that thing off. So cute!

Pizza Hut Restaurants sent us Wilf a spooky party kit so we spent Wednesday lunchtime setting about creating our own halloween pizzas. Tom has the week off so was able to join in and I think got into it just as much as Wilf (he actually got a leeetle competitive over decorating his pizza ;)).

Pizza is a favourite in our house, it's one of the handful of things Wilf is guaranteed to eat! I'm not too surprised though I don't think I could ever get bored of it.

We were sent a bunch of spooky activities to get up to and Wilf loved pretending to be a skellington like his pizza design and hiding a bunch of creepy items likes plastic spiders and eyeballs around the place! We actually bought him a skellington outfit for the night so this mask will go perfectly.

Thanks again to Pizza Hut Resteraunts for the fun halloween pack! We are going to take a bunch of the games sent with us on our trip to Amsterdam for actual halloween. What are you guys up to for Halloween? Do you celebrate it? Go all out on costumes or hide away from trick or treaters?

Pizza Hut Restaurants are giving away a £50 gift card for one lucky winner to use in their restaurants. To enter just leave a comment below! A winner will be picked and announced on Monday the 3rd!

I know we only just came from our weekend in Paris but we are headed off on another adventure this weekend. This time we are spending a couple of days in Amsterdam courtesy of KLM airlines! We've never actually flown anywhere since having Wilf so I'm excited to travel with him, I'm usually a little fearful of flying but funny enough I'm (currently) feeling surprisingly calm about it.

I think I lot of things changed when I became a mum and being more confident is certainly one of them, I don't just mean socially but also in my capability to do certain things. For example before Wilf I was scared of things like travelling on the tube or to places I hadn't been before, but now I just have a 'let's get on with it' sort of attitude. I'm hoping this applies to my nervousness about flying, we'll have to see! ;)

One of the things that's great about being able to fly with KLM is that we can travel straight from Bristol, I actually had no idea you could fly from Bristol to Amsterdam and just assumed you needed to go via a bigger airport like London or Cardiff. It means our journey will be a lot less stressful having to only hop on a bus a short distance to get there.

Amsterdam is one of those places I've wanted to visit for so long. I'm really excited about visiting the flower market and maybe taking a trip on a canal boat. I'm also very excited to check out the vintage shops as I've been told by a few people they are amazing! Wilf is beyond excited about traveling on a plane and being in another country, we were so surprised by how well he travelled when we took a trip to France earlier in the year. It's so great to know that these are things he enjoys and as a parent it's wonderful to be given a chance to show him different places and cultures. We feel very lucky for sure!

Have you been to Amsterdam? Would you recommend we visit anywhere in particular?

Paris Honeymoon Video

We got back from our honeymoon in Paris last night and after kissing and hugging my little boy just as much as he would let me (and tucking him into bed) I set about making this little video. I didn't take as many photograph's as I usually do when we go anywhere and I think this is because we had done all the touristy bits a few months back when we visited for the first time. It was quite nice to just film bits here and there and just enjoy the rest of our time without trying to capture its beauty.

Hope you like it! x

What are you afraid of?

I guess most of us have something we are scared of to varying degrees. I wouldn't say I had an actual phobia of anything but I certainly have a dislike/tendency to jump onto sofas when a spider scuttles along. I'm also not a fan of flying in the slightest and generally have to spend the whole time holding onto my arm rests convincing myself it's the only way we are staying airborne. I'm actually flying for the first time in about 4 years this friday and with Wilf for the first time so that should be...interesting!

I'd say those were pretty standard fears though, hairy spiders and the fear of falling our the sky whilst being in giant tin in the air. I can't really confess to having any unusual fears, however Tom does have a phobia of Vampires (which makes halloween a bit tricky).
