The Falconer's Quest at Warwick Castle

Bank holiday weekends usually mean a day out for us as we all have a few days off together, so last weekend we took a trip to Warwick Castle, somewhere I have never actually been before, to see the castle and grounds and to check out their new Bird of Prey show, The Falconer's Quest.

The one with all the muddy puddles

It was the wettest day of the Easter holidays (that one day it rained before the wall to wall sunshine, remember?), the last day Daddy was home before it was just me and the Little Ones for the best part of two weeks off school. It had rained overnight and solidly all morning but we were not going to be beaten by the wet stuff.

The Girls flip over Moji Pops

Collectibles are a big hit with the Little Ones right now, it seems whenever they get a little pocket money or are allowed a treat they ask to get more, to expand their growing collections or to see if they can find the ultra rare figure they haven't got. All three Little Ones love to play with them, and Little 1 really isn't one for playing with toys much anymore, the girls love to barter and trade to complete the little families or combine them all together and take over the floor.

Children are expensive little things

Is it me or are children really rather expensive things, despite their size (in the early years anyway) they really are rather costly. Even right from the start with a cot, car seat and pram they can require a hefty outlay and it doesn't really stop there. They eat and grow, need uniforms and money for all sorts, then they get bigger and the costs begin to rise.

A smashing Easter egg hunt with a difference

Sometimes I think the Little ones get too much chocolate at Easter (too much chocolate, who ever heard of such a thing!), an egg from school, a friend, the grandparents and a local egg hunt near us and of course a couple of little bits from the Easter bunny on the day itself. While we don't go overboard with chocolate sometimes I think something a little different would go down just as well.

A dude, a diva and the school disco

Last week Littles 2 and 3 went to a disco at school. Ever since we got the disco letter Little 3 had been counting sleeps until the disco and practicing his moves, there had been hip swaying, the bobbing up and down foot shuffle and some sort of break dancing going on here as well as repeatedly taking a run up and sliding across the carpet on his knees which had me shouting 'Don't do that, you will ruin your trousers'.

Mud and bloom- an easy way to connect children with nature

You will know by now that we like to get outdoors, splash in puddles and get a bit closer to nature, the Little Ones like nothing better than putting on their wellies and getting out to explore, get dirty and have a bit of fresh air whilst learning about the outdoors. We heard about Mud and Bloom, a monthly subscription box which delivers four seasonal growing and craft activities to your door and were asked to review the February box.

Wellies or trainers, Mum?

The winter weather can often be cold and dreary, I don't know about you but I am often tempted to stay indoors in the warm rather than venture outside. With the brighter and warmer than usual weather lately we have been getting out and about to enjoy the fresh air lots.
