It’s Christmas At Webb’s Garden Centre

Last year a visit to Webbs Garden Centre was the thing that got us all into the festive spirit. Since our last visit, Libby has been asking me at least once a week when we’d be going again. It’s been a long 52 weeks but finally, the Webb’s Garden Centre Ice Rink and Christmas Grotto are back. So it may be a bit early but for me, Christmas starts here! My husband’s review of Christmas at Webb’s Garden Centre With hubby off work, we headed over there en masse today. My sister Soph came to give me a hand with the girls and…

Our Thursday Photo #79

18 months ago almost to the day, I decided it would be great to launch a series on my blog called Our Thursday Photo. I thought it was a lovely idea to photograph both girls together every week. Lovely to look back on, I thought. Great opportunity to make sure I get loads of photos of both girls together I said to myself. Let me tell you now, I was a fool. The first few weeks were easy. In fact, several months passed before I started to realise that this wasn’t such a great idea. It wasn’t until Lia started walking…

New post here: 10 West Midlands Christmas Days Out 2016 I’ve always found it a little bit difficult to get in the mood for Christmas.

I’ve researched the…

Being organised: Black Friday deals

Every summer, I decide around August time that this year, I’ll be ready for Christmas. By the time November comes around, I have usually realised that my decision was absolute nonsense. If I’m honest, this year is worse than ever. Last Christmas, I finished making my Christmas cakes sometime around midnight on Christmas Eve. I’d overdone it on the fruit soaked in brandy and there was quite a lot left over. Well, enough for another cake. So, I decided that when we’d finished our Christmas cake I’d make another one. I didn’t. Until the end of August when we were…

Our Thursday Photo #78

Things are definitely getting a little easier here. I’m still struggling to find the time to do anything but somehow it just doesn’t seem quite so difficult. Perhaps that’s because we’ve had a few really nice days since last Thursday. The first was the fireworks at Drayton Manor last Friday. Sad though it was that my husband couldn’t come, it was lovely to see my friend and we all had a fabulous afternoon and evening. The fireworks were truly spectacular. Libby is back at nursery now that half term is over and she’s got straight back into the swing of things…
