Suffolk Yurt Holidays!

Suffolk Yurt Holidays! For my birthday this year I booked exclusive use of the whole site at Suffolk Yurt Holidays in Woodbridge. I’d originally just booked the cottage for us, but when I realised I could book out the 5 yurts in a package alongside the cottage, having it all to ourselves at an extremely reasonable rate, I roped some family and friends in for a party weekend to celebrate turning the big four three! I just thought oh why […]

Summer Holidays 2022 – Week 1!

Summer Holidays 2022 – Week 1! We kicked off week one of the holidays with a massive drive to Herefordshire and the Nozstock festival where we joined our lovely friends from the Cookie Crumbles gang. A weekend of kids going feral and having awesome fun with lots of freedom and loads of getting grubby ensued. It was hard work, as camping and festival life is with children, but it was also masses of fun and we loved being with our […]

Summer Holidays 2022 – Weeks -1 and 2!

Summer Holidays 2022 – Weeks -1 and 2! Welcome to my summer holiday diary for 2022 which is labelled rather strangely for the first weekly entry on account of the fact Florence broke up 2 weeks ahead of everyone else! We still had school routines for that first fortnight she was off but she still had fun and I had to mention a few of the bits we did as they are a part of our summer!

Last Day Of School – Summer 2022!

Posted in Family Life and tagged .

Last Day Of School – Summer 2022! Here we are in the blink of an eye and we’ve found ourselves at the end of the year already. Florence’s first at high school, Raffie’s last as a pre-schooler, Jimmy’s only one at primary school as the only Rocknrollerbaby rep and Posie’s last being able to be in cahoots with her brother – What a year which saw me with a high schooler, a primary schooler, a nursery goer and a baby […]

Point Scoring In The Night!

Posted in Family Life

I’ve written before about how middle of the night awake times with babies create tensions and arguments between my husband and I. I think that never before children do you argue in quite the same way and the things that are said in the heat of moments when little sleep has been had, I find, can be thoroughly vicious in a way you would never normally be! You might speak terribly to the one person in the world who you […]

Well, I said, not really any need to think about that for a few weeks yet, (poor Jonny) not after my type of labour! He consulted my notes, grimaced and said ‘Ah yes, of course, probably a bit soon […]

I don’t mean we had fisticuffs or anything but I had to keep restraining her as she tried desperately to latch herself on. She’s strong both in her will and […]

I made a real meal of it I think and thought it was just oh so much hard work – it wasn’t! New born babies are easy and I should have been out enjoying coffee with friends, […]

I can’t believe it’s been that long, it seems only five minutes. I haven’t written partly because I’ve wanted to hug the special time of the birth to myself and partly because I’ve actually been quite poorly since but I’m ready to […]

After a rather relaxing week staying with my Mum I have made the decision to stay for another one! Well, Jonny’s working this weekend and then he has lots of work for his degree with the Open University as he has an assignment due on the 11th so it kind of makes sense in more ways than one. We are […]
