Sebby has been planning his birthday party since he missed out on one last year, thanks to lockdown. We had been looking at activities online when we spotted Kids on Quadz parties in Bournemouth and from the moment he saw a video of it, he was sold! We had booked it for his actual birthday, but in true COVID style, I got pinged by my app and had to isolate for 10 days. Thankfully, the guys at Kids on Quadz… Continue Reading “Sebby’s 8th Birthday Party at Kids on Quadz, Bournemouth”

Project 365 2020 Week 25 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 14

Candles

It is been a strange week this week, with Eliza and Sebastian back to school full time. They were booked in for just one day a week, but the school wanted more consistency, so it made sense to send them in all week. In fact, the school have been brilliant and most year groups will be back in school by next week, which is a relief to many parents. Non-essential shops opened on Monday, but have to admit I have… Continue Reading “Project 365 2020 Week 25 – COVID 19 Lockdown Week 14”

Eliza’s Harry Potter Party with Mad4Animals

Having a January birthday can be a bit of a pain as the weather is up and down and many of the activities the kids enjoy don’t run in the winter. However, Eliza has been planning her birthday party ever since Sebastian had his Mad4Animals party back in June. Eliza decided on a Harry Potter theme for her birthday and requested that we used Mad4Animals to provide the entertainment as she had enjoyed Sebby’s party so much. Her main stipulation… Continue Reading “Eliza’s Harry Potter Party with Mad4Animals”

AD: Embrace your individuality with Smiggle!

Smiggle E Light up book

Smiggle items are the playground must have! I cannot do the school run without seeing dozens of Smiggle bags, keyrings or back packs and they all bring a smile to my face as they are so bright and colourful. We were lucky enough to be sent a Smiggle Gift Card for the kids (and the class teddy, Charlie), to go wild in our local Bournemouth store. With so many colours, ranges, prints and styles at Smiggle, I let the kids… Continue Reading “AD: Embrace your individuality with Smiggle!”
