4 THINGS I’VE LEARNED FROM MY (SOON TO BE!) 4 YEAR OLD

IN eight days, Elsie will turn four. Another year older, another age reached, another little milestone passed. Last week we had her first school induction, the week before that I bought some of bits and pieces of her school uniform and on Friday she will visit nursery for the very last time and we will say goodbye to the staff who have done such a wonderful job of looking after

DAY TRIPPERS: A FAMILY DAY OUT IN LIVERPOOL

  WHEN I told Elsie I was taking her to Liverpool for the day, she was very excited. She thought that the city would be full of ‘pools’ and that she’d be spending the day in her swimsuit (well it kind of makes sense I guess!), and although I had to point out to her that this wasn’t quite the case, thankfully it didn’t dampen her enthusiasm! We did find

ELSIE & HER FAVOURITE RAINCOAT

I HAVEN’T done an ‘Elsie style post’ for ages! Donkeys in fact. So the other day, when there was a break in the heavy rain we’ve been having, I decided to take my wee poppet outside and encourage her to take part in her very own ‘photoshoot’. She was striking all kinds of poses – some of them worked and some of them didn’t quite work so well (!) -but

A reminder, if ever there was one, that

ELSIE’S 3RD BIRTHDAY PARTY AT WIGFIELD FARM

IT’S not often I share our family life on this blog. But Elsie had such a wonderful party with her friends at Wigfield Farm on Saturday, that I’ve decided I just have to! Wigfield Farm is a local farm, near to where we live in Barnsley and it’s a working farm, which teaches students. It’s also one of Elsie’s favourite places and one of ours too. I’ve lost track of

BEFORE I HAD ELSIE…

IT’S Elsie’s 3rd birthday today! *beams* Watching your child grow older is a funny ol’ bittersweet thing. In some ways it feels like the past three years has gone by in a blink of an eye. In others, it feels like I’ve packed more into the past three years than I have in the last thirty! I really wanted to write something to celebrate Elsie’s birthday, and so when I

TWO LOVELY PLACES TO VISIT IN ‘THE LAKES’ WITH KIDS

A COUPLE of months ago, we spent a glorious few days in the beautiful Lake District. We stayed in a fabulous gypsy caravan (and oh and how we loved it!) and whilst we were there, we went to see a few local attractions as a family. Now Elsie is almost three, we are loving having all kinds of fun, visiting new places with her and watching her learn, explore and
