Life Lately


I'm so overdue a long catch up with you guys! Honestly it feels like I'm trying to keep my head above water being a good friend / wife / blogger / mum and sometimes when things are moving at 100 miles an hour the blog is the thing taking a back seat a little at the moment. I do love this space though and I'm feeling positive that when the new school term kicks in and life has returned to some kind of normality then I'll be over here much much more.


Anyway a little of life lately

Last week I took a break in packing up our house to see my old friend Adele. She is one of my longest standing blogger friendships and such a positive, calming person to be around. Having moved to Cornwall a year and a half ago we hadn't seen each other in real life for so long. We spent the whole day at Windmill City Farm and it was such a brilliant reminder to keep nurturing those connections. I've felt a little bogged down by some of the insincerity I've seen in online 'friendships' where people seems to be more frenemies then friends but I'm always grateful to this space for connecting me with some of the best people I know. If gentle parenting and homeschooling is your bag then check out here blog here.


Last month we visited Warwick Castle and paid to stay over and glamp. I honestly didn't think it would be as good as it was but we all got a lot out of it (Wilf especially). If you go I would really recommend staying over as all the things you have to pay extra for in the day (like knight school or archery) is free in the evening for everyone staying over. As a special treat we decided to go all out and book the kings tent and it was so comfy with a four poster bed. Pretty much the only way I'd camp now haha


I also had no idea how cute a little town Warwick was, really made me want to explore more the UK and the cute little towns all over the country we've not been too.

What else happened last month? I needed to go to London for a meeting and as we hadn't gone to the big city for a while as a family we decided to all go. We stayed in an Airbnb in Hackney which was part of the Airbnb 'for families' range. It was so beautiful and had a great selection of kids toys (always a bonus). I'd defo recommend it BUT also need to point out that when the kids were playing in the garden at one point one of the neighbours in the the flat above threw pennies at the kids. We didn't see exactly who it was so I'm *hoping* it was kids. The idea that adults would do that is a bit disturbing to think about to be honest. So yer, it was a lovely Airbnb, great location and really set up for families BUT I'm sure how thrilled the neighbours are about the place being let out..

(Also want to make a point that it was about 10am and the kids were being pretty quiet and not disturbing anyone)


We also popped into Eastern Curve garden which was SO good. If you are in the area with kids you should defo check it out. It has a cafe and bar and loads of kids play toys so we killed a good few hours there.


So thats it for now! I'll be back shortly with a moving home blog ah! xx
