    A Sunday Well Spent… In Lockdown

    A Sunday well spent brings a week of content – well, lets hope so because we are back to home schooling! How was your half term? Our week went by so quickly, I spent most of it poorly. I did have a Covid test and thankfully it was negative, still worrying though. I know I speak for most of us when I say life is pretty suffocating right now. In all the time, raining outside, zero motivation to do anything remotely productive and we just want normal life to resume. We HAD to get out of the house on Sunday, the kids were like caged animals jumping on my sofas,…

    Weekend Adventures – Ikea, Quince Honey Farm & Pub Lunches

    I hope you all had a brilliant weekend, but, seriously where has October gone? I can’t believe the BEST month of the year is nearly over – booo! I also can’t believe we have been in our new house for a month, time just dashes by doesn’t it. Saturday Saturday started great, I got a notification on my phone to say I’d won a family pass to Quince Honey Farm in South Molton. I never win anything so I was very excited by this news. We still needed a few bits and bobs for the house and what better place to pick things up (crap you don’t need) – Ikea.…

    Sundays

    Sundays when I was little consisted of getting up early watching cartoons in my pyjamas whilst eating Frosties. We only had four channels growing up so it was exciting watching the programmes I had been waiting for all week. Sunday was a lazy day, the day before a brand new week at school, I can’t remember ever having homework although we probably did. My sister and I would play (fight, more like) all morning, my Mum always cooked us a roast dinner or cottage pie to eat for lunch. Roast chicken was cooked in the oven, had really crispy skin and was used for sandwiches for lunches during the week,…

    A Sunday Well Spent…

    They say a Sunday well spent, brings a week of content and I sure hope that’s true. We had a lovely family Sunday eating out, cooking together, playing with vintage Lego and ending it with a big roast dinner. Sunday morning was spent at a trendy bar for breakfast. We usually go to Wetherspoons but fancied somewhere a little different so we headed to Spoken in Exmouth. The food was so delicious and excellent quality with lots of choice on the menu. The children shared American Pancakes with Nutella whilst Mr K and myself chose the Across The Pond breakfast I wasn’t expecting it to be as huge as it…

    Raw, Honest Motherhood

    I’m sat on the bed with my poorly little boy who is full of a cold and chesty cough (still), the rain is pouring down and my clothes are soaked through. Monday again, how quick do the weekends go? I prefer the run up to Christmas (October, November, December) much more than the actual day, so I love cosy weekends spent as a family or with friends. There aren’t many weekends left to savour the magic before it all comes to an end for another year. Our Sunday started well we were all in good spirits so we headed to Aldi for a food shop, the children were well behaved…

    Sunday, Sunday… Christmas Countdown

    We’ve reached Sunday again, the weekends seem to be whizzing by so quickly I want to enjoy every single second. I saw the Coca Cola advert last night so I am officially on Christmas countdown now. This weekend has been full of lazy starts, messy rooms, children’s toys everywhere and relaxing. All of which were definitely needed after a busy week of school runs, doctors appointments and another bug being brought home from school. Today will be spent cosying up with the children, watching a Christmas film, eating lots, meal planning, homework and probably breaking up a scrap or two! I hope you have all had a fab weekend so…
