What else is there to do when you have a poorly boy home from school? Watch Paddington (again and again and again) with mini Paddington Bear for cuddles and then make some marmalade! My son is obsessed with Paddington ever since he saw the first film a few weeks ago and the second just this… Continue reading Marmalade Day!
A while ago I had the pleasure of enjoying Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing outside on a beautiful estate near where I live. It’s a tradition that we do every summer – admittedly not always the same place, or acting company, but always an outdoor Shakespeare play. This time it was a new acting company and… Continue reading Open Air Theatre
I’m condensing days 2&3 into one blog post, as admittedly I do not have any pictures of day 3 to share with you. Day 3 it rained for what felt like a solid 24 hours.

My son may find this somewhat dull after a while though. So I thought I’d… Continue reading Camping Scavenger Hunt
