Does February feel like ages ago or is is it that this final push to Spring feels like it's taking so long? I've finally put together last month's Snapshots & Scenes post which is a round up of our everyday moments and adventures. Since I bought my new camera last Christmas, I just love capturing our life through a mixture of photos and video, although sometimes it can get tiring and I don't pick up the camera for a few days, especially when we're busy with school runs and work. The highlight of February had to be Half-term, just that little break from routine and the non-stop hamster wheel of school, work, bed repeat.
The last few years we have holidayed on the east coast of Italy in the Marche and Abruzzo regions. We tried both self-catering and full-board accommodation. Going away with family means that you want to travel to a place that meets everyone's needs. Somewhere that is great for kids but makes the adults happy too. Somewhere that caters for those that want to be active, but also for those that just want to totally relax and forget about their busy life back home for a short while. Matteo loves the beach and the sea air, whilst I am more than happy by the pool. The boys love both, as long as they are active they're content. This includes playing football on the sand and going in their boat on the sea as well as jumping in the pool and riding on Daddy's back.
I've mentioned before that my boys are very opinionated about their wardrobe and that I can't choose what they wear anymore. They permanently want it to be warm enough to wear shorts and t-shirts and so they're so looking forward to it being Spring.
As the seasons change so does the nature of our skincare routines. We need to turn to lighter and healthier products that will give our skin a natural and youthful glow. Adapting your skincare regimen to spring and adjusting it to your skin type will help you achieve the best effect and accentuate your natural beauty. Furthermore, as a busy mum who needs to take care of her kids, it’s not unusual for you to have a slightly tired look. However, you don’t need to worry because, with these simple steps, you’ll look fresh, youthful and beautiful.
February has finished. I normally feel relief at knowing that Spring is just around the corner but what with the freezing temperatures and snow of this week I'm wishing the time away a bit. Tonight the temperature is -6! February has gone quickly, half-term flew by. I've worked two weekend days and been to a conference on one of the other weekends.
With Valentines Day out of the way the next date for the diary in the UK is Mother's Day on March 11th. Whether you're looking for something to buy for your other half from your children or you're someone hoping to find something new for your Mum, I've got ten great ideas for you.
We had three days together just me and the boys and one with something already planned so when it came to Monday evening I was scouring the internet to find a cheap local day out for us as I knew the weather was going to be quite good the next day. I found out about the snowdrop gardens and woodland walk at Hodsock Priory near Blyth, North Nottinghamshire, just off the A1 between Worksop and Doncaster, so decided to head there for a look around and some fresh air.
Britain is a nation of foodies, with 66% of UK adults describing themselves as passionate about food and drink. It comes as no surprise then that 50% say they are passionate about home cooking and 53% of millennials eat out at least once a week.
My boys love clothes and shoes, they're very opinionated about what they wear at the weekend, I can't choose their outfits anymore. They're also full of energy and happiest when we're out and about, especially at the park with their bikes or scooters. So what could be better than combining shoes and wheels for scooting? … Continue reading Weekend Fun with Heelys – A Review
It doesn't seem like five minutes since I was writing January's Siblings post and here we are in the middle of February. I hate wishing the time away but is it Spring yet? The last four weeks have been about school routine, quick trips to the park, two birthday parties and family time at home with Daddy recovering from having his tonsils out.
