During the last week the girls have been waking up at crazy early hours, this of course is down to the very hot and sticky nights we have been experiencing in the uk. It is of course very unusual for us to have such consistently warm weather, but I’m not complaining it’s beautiful and being able to live in shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops is the only way to live for me. So the girls getting up early has meant that every morning that I have walked into our lounge. A den has been made from the dining room chairs, and… [Read More]
In my blog post yesterday I wrote to say it was my mum’s birthday and we had planned a surprise. The surprise was something she had hinted that she would love to do, ans I guess it was to cross one off her bucket list. No! It’s not bungee jumping, paragliding or a parachute jump, or anything totally thrilling or dangerous. It was something much more sedate! A ride in a stretch limo. This is something my mum has wanted to do ever since the limo became a popular way to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday. We… [Read More]
My Sunday Photo this week is two photos from our recent trip to Disneyland Paris. We had a fantastic time for seven days and we arrived on the same day that the Marvel Superheroes of summer season started. There was without doubt so many highlights, but without question the one person that made the biggest impression for my six year old twin girls was the one and only Captain America. They absolutely loved him and this was our second meet and greet with him which also included meeting Thor, although he didn’t get a look in with the girls as… [Read More]
We had our schools sports day for our six year old twin girls during the last week. The school the girls attend, I have to admit make a huge effort to ensure sports day is an enjoyable experience for both pupils and parents, and this year was no different. It is a sports day that has winners and losers, although there is not a huge emphasis on whether somebody comes first, second or third, but at the end of the afternoon there is a winning house and just for good measure my twin girls were in the winning house. My… [Read More]
This week my Sunday Photo is Darth Vader appearing from behind a wall to put the fear of god into anybody walking by. Thankfully I was on hand to capture the moment on my trusted iPhone X, otherwise who would have believed that Darth Vader had landed on earth and was living a normal life in the leafy suburbs of a city in South Wales. I imagined he is probably married with two children doing the school run every day, haha! Now the real truth is I live next door to the car park entrance of a pub and I… [Read More]
I caught this photo last week on our visit to West Midlands Safari Park. I love going there to be so close to wild powerful awesome animals, from the comfort and safety of your car. It’s a perfect day out and easily our favourite family day trip. I can’t wait to go back soon! I have linked up My Sunday Photo which is hosted by the brilliant photographer Darren from Photalife
Yesterday we went on a day trip to West Midlands Safari Park where they have a new feature called Ice Age. Whilst walking through the exhibit, we came across this very angry bear, so I did what any loving parent and husband would do. I fought the bear to allow my children and wife enough time to escape! Did I survive? Well, you will have to wait until tomorrow to see if I publish a full blog post review on our day trip to West Midlands Safari Park. I have linked up to My Sunday Photo on Photalife which is… [Read More]
Last Tuesday my 20 year old daughter, E, arrived back home from university for the day. The reason for this is because I did my first ever blogging job with one of my older children. All will be revealed soon on the blog, but I have to say we had a blast and laughed all day. It was particularly lovely to spend the day with my daughter as it’s not something that happens very often. We managed to captured this photo to remember the day.
