Cheap Things to do with the kids in The Summer Holidays

gruffalo trail Cheap Things to do with the kids in The Summer HolidaysWell this is the time of year that I think most of us have mixed feelings about. On one hand we can’t wait to have the kids all to ourselves and enjoy some proper family time together but then we’re also secretly panicking about what we are going to do to keep them happy for 6 weeks and how much is it going to cost?

So I thought that it would be a good idea to put together a small list of fun free (or at least cheap) things to do in the summer holidays. [Read more…]

The Dreaded Chicken Pox has Arrived

child sick at home The Dreaded Chicken Pox has ArrivedIsaac my 5 year old has been dodging chicken pox since he started school last September. It seems to come and go in waves but when I learned that his best friend was off school with it, I just knew it was going to be his turn soon.

It was lovely to find a very local home with a litter just waiting for owners. I had the dreadful job of picking out only 2 of 6 gorgeous little fluff balls but once I had made up my mind I then also had the great task of keeping it a secret from our boys as they were a surprise and the rabbits wouldn’t be ready to come home for another 4 weeks!

I have been married for just over 7 years and we have 2 energetic boys aged 5 and 3. Our little family has also just grown recently by getting 2 lovely bunnies for our boys.

Now we are by no means flush with cash and I never have money burning a hole in my pocket so what I do spend money on for my family I like to make sure that I’m getting the best that I can afford/or is needed at the time. [Read more…]
