Posting is a little sporadic at the moment. But rest assured, all the important bits will still make it here.

“What’s with the elephants?” I hear you ask.

Well, another year, another anniversary with my very gorgeous and lovely husband! 

We stick loosely to the traditional gift ideas because it’s handy to have a prompt, but this year was a right tricky one.

You see, fourteen years is ivory and the husb and I have some very strong feelings about ivory.

He got round it though. In his usual thoughtful, sensitive way (have I mentioned that I love him, very much).

Resin elephants. Genius, beautiful and more than a little romantic.


Love ❤️

We’re back home from our latest adventure. This time it was with lots of family and was lovely.

While we were away we visited the Tank Museum, which pretty much did what you’d expect for the Boy. 

The Girl wasn’t so keen, unsurprisingly, so she and I whipped through the exhibits. 

We made it to the cafe unscathed and, while we waited for the Husb and the Boy and Grandma to catch up, she spotted some tanks for painting.

I love what she’s done.


Apparently car journeys are boring, no matter the length. They invented a new way of entertaining themselves today (never thought I’d say thank goodness for Starburst). Fortunately, it didn’t hit the driver.

The View

on holiday. Oh, and the neighbours.


To get very, very wet. 

He hasn’t fallen in yet, but I’m fairly sure it won’t be long… 


He does love a good pudding, and we seem to be getting more and more successful (brave) in our choice of pudding venues. 

Pool in Pool

Lovely weather. For ducks! 

Home Alone

Well, not quite. The Littles and I are away again, and this favourite got left at home. Fortunately, the Husb is on hand to take care of him, and to send reassurance that he’s ok. 


We took the Littles to the Science Museum today. 

The Girl and I went to the Robots exhibition which she declared fab, but I thought was a bit small. 

The Boy and the Husb went in a Typhoon simulator and “saw some Tim Peake stuff” (direct quote from the Boy, sorry the Husb!). 

All in all a good day. I forgot to take any pics of my lovelies, but look – a stack of cool cars!

Last Day

It’s the last day at the seaside for me and the Littles.  Not that you’d know that we’ve been at the seaside, just by looking at the pictures I’ve been posting recently. 

I’ll be continuing that theme, because although we did go to the beach today, it was too wet to get the camera out. 

Golf was dry though,

and climbing was inside. 

Sort of win/win.
