The Best Day Ever at Bournemouth Air Festival!!

Bournemouth Air Festival is an event we look forward to every year.  I have already posted about Days 1 & 2 where the weather was a bit hit and miss.  Day 3 was slightly better weather wise, but the Sunday was just perfect. The weather was clear, sunny and warm and having see people set up their huge gazebos’ on the beach we decided to take our beach hut, arriving early to set it up so it wouldn’t be in anyone’s way. The beach was lovely and quiet so the kids had plenty of room to play, but it wasn’t long …

Camp Bestival 2014

Why I am voting for Camp Bestival!

Sadly festival season is over for another year, although I am not sure even I would be up for partying in a freezing cold field in a typical British winter, but it is lovely revisiting all our old photo’s from the summer and reminisce about the fabulous fun we all had. We were first time family campers and even we were surprised by how well we coped.  The toilets were good, there were hot showers and the atmosphere was brilliant, if a little noisy. The huge amount of activities on offer meant that even with the best will in the world …

Project 365 2014 – Week 39

It’s almost October…….how did that happen?

This week has seen the return of the after-school clubs and Isaac was really excited to get back to playing football.  As his feet had grown he is now the proud owner of new football boots and despite being the shortest in his year, seems to be quite adept at playing in goal!

Although the weather is still lovely, we have noticed the mornings are a little nippy so have broken out the jumpers.  I am not quite ready to put my beloved fit flops away though and am persevering with chilly toes.

On Wednesday we were invited to the launch of Farmer Palmers new play barn, which was stunning.  As it was Daddy’s day off we dragged him along and he got to help Isaac feed the lambs.

Saturday saw Isaac go on his very first Beavers Trip and I dropped him off to catch the ferry to Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour.  He had an absolute ball by all accounts, whilst we headed back to Farmer Palmers where Sebastian cuddles his first Guinea Pig.

Here is our week in pictures:

The MADBlog Awards 2014

On Friday 19th September I attended my first ever MADBlogAwards and had the most amazing evening. Sadly, as I had been sunning myself in Rhodes with Mark Warner, I missed out on the hair and make-up appointments at the venue, however I did have my hair done at my local salon before hand so didn’t look too shabby.  My outfit for the evening was the Milano Dress from Boden teamed with a pair of the most comfortable heels I have ever worn – the Lauren shoes from Hotter.  Even hubby mentioned that I scrubbed up well – cheeky devil! Held at …

Day 3 of Bournemouth Air Festival 2014

If you read my post on Days 1 and 2 of Bournemouth Air Festival 2014 you will know that the weather was not great on the first two days, but that did not stop us having fun.  The weather was slightly better on Saturday but there was still quite a bit of cloud cover to contend with. Saturday saw the promise of the Vulcan flying again after a couple of years of absence and we were all hopeful that it would make its appearance later that day.  Isaac and Eliza donned their costumes in preparation of the event and we got …
