Take one maize, a beautifully sunny day and a football = a great family afternoon. Oh and an added bonus being we ticked off a reading homework for the holidays in a super fun way - reading the signs around the maize...

Last weekend was a lovely one and instead of doing something big and grand for Father's Day, we had a wonderfully relaxed day trip to a new jaunt, a local museum. Armed with a picnic and treating ourselves to an afternoon cuppa and cake in the tea room there, it really was a perfect day.

What do you do when your little one has the mother of all night time coughs?! That's right, go and buy yourself some nice looking shoes of course and these coral beauties are from Tesco of all places.
Your welcome ;)
*Now someone pass me a very strong cuppa....*
Half term seemed to whizz by and now it's back to it for six more weeks, I repeat SIX more weeks until the end of the school year and my boy will have finished Year 1. How on earth has that happened?! I'm so proud of how well he's doing at school and how much he enjoys going in. Our teacher this year has just been wonderful, so approachable. There are some you know you will just remember and she is definitely one of them...I wish we could have her next year too.
It has been a little quiet on the blog front, apologies, I must get back into the swing of things (the lack of a blogger app on my new non-techy phone is to blame). In the meantime I'll leave you with some random pictures from half term. Hope you all had a good one xx

School and work are done and that means one thing and one thing alone - half term is here and it's much needed!
You learn as you go and previous school holidays have taught me some important things - if I think back to both the February and Easter break I've got to be honest, by the end of trying to fit everything in I felt a little frazzled. Juggling family days out, meeting family and my boy's friends, it all felt like everything was a little too squeezed in. Too stretched and not enough chill out time for us.
This time I have a plan or lack of to be more precise. We're taking things much slower. One thing a day, no morning starts and a few days where there is absolutely nothing in the diary. Bliss. Freedom to do whatever we fancy.
Isn't that the point of holidays and especially the one week ones? It's hard, you want to do so much and have lots of adventures because let's face it weekends are jam packed with clubs so you don't get much of a chance to do anything else. Mantra to self: there will be plenty of time in the summer.
Here's to a quiet half term, a chance to really, truly unwind and recharge those batteries before the busy last leg of the year. I find this final term a long and hectic one...
