Thursday Photo #105

Each Thursday, I sit down and look back on the previous week. There are usually ups and downs, but I always look back on the week fondly. This week has had notably more ups than downs, despite being just as busy as ever – if not more so. On Saturday, everyone went out for the day and left me to my own devices.

The girls were bundled up with hats and sun-cream instead of coats and gloves and…

It’s something we’ve been meaning to do for a while now, since both girls often talk about the different animals they see in books. I’m not a huge fan of zoos as I don’t feel comfortable with the animals being in such small spaces, so I chose the safari park instead. The animals I’ve been to the West Midlands Safari Park a few times, and I’ve always been quite impressed with the fact that the animals had plenty of space. I’m not sure…

Love2Read: a Father’s day gift idea

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I know that there will be people all over the country who find themselves in the same position as me. Trying to find the perfect gift to buy the dad who has everything and wants nothing. My husband’s birthday was last month and you may have read about the birthday present fiasco, which basically left me without a clue what to buy for him. Not only did my husband fail to come up with any ideas or drop any hints as to what he wanted, just before his birthday he also went out and…
