Toddler Activities in the midlands

We are nearing the end of our summer holidays and about to return to the routine again, having been our first experience of summer holidays with a toddler whilst also working full time we have tried our best to source age appropriate activities to keep our little guy entertained. Here are our favourites below: Sealife…

Summertime update

It feels like forever again since I last checked in, but since having to navigate the summer time with a very active toddler who needs constant stimulation, without our formal childcare (sadly termtime only) whilst juggling working full time and also now in my 7th month of pregnancy it hasn’t been the easiest period of…

Toddler Play Activities

Having a very active toddler who enjoys to be outside at all times – but simultaneously living in one of the wettest/ coldest countries almost all year around we’ve definitely had to invest some time into sourcing ideas and supplies for creative activities to keep our little man entertained on the rainy days that we…

Jubilee Weekend – Strawberry Picking

Back to work again after what has been a lovely family filled break this past Platinum Jubilee Holiday. We have thoroughly enjoyed having quality time together as a 3, baking, getting outside exploring and keeping our little guy busy with activities, as well as celebrating our British-ness! What a special historic weekend it has been,…

Going on Safari – toddler days out

Currently tucked up under a make shift sofa bed with our little guy fighting off a viral infection, who thankfully seems to be feeling more himself today so whilst we are house bound this felt like the right time to reflect whilst the little guy snoozes. With our often conflicting work schedules it makes it…

Easter time adventures

What a busy, craft and adventure filled Easter break it has been! Although it initially felt daunting the prospect of navigating this easter holiday with just the two of us and only one full family day available we really have cracked on and had a blast! Finn has been coming on leaps and bounds and…

Little Naturalist

When times are stressful and the inside of my head becomes a battle ground, nothing roots me more than getting out of the house, getting some fresh air and exploring nature. This is the way it has always been ever since I was a young girl. I loved nothing more than hopping on my bike…

Picking Pumpkins

Pumpkin Picking, a family tradition we’ve had in place since before we ‘became a family’ or rather I should say ‘family of 3’. Every year we have made a tradition of going and picking our own pumpkins during the autumn time and this time around it was even more special to share it with our…

Our First Family Holiday

Now back into working life for almost a month and so desperately missing my one on one time with our little guy, but thankful for the option of working from home during this time. But it’s today I find myself finding the time to sit back and take in what was the last moments of…

Beach Baby Adventures

Throwback to a time last month where we had a day I have dreamt of having since forever.  Anyone who knows myself and Richard as a couple IRL will know just how much the coast means to us…we’ve spent many an adventure there and some major milestones including our engagement and wedding so it should…
