Interview With A Seven Year Old

Annoyingly, I'm a little late with this post, by nearly two months! I usually post our annual interview on my son's birthday and, despite doing it on time and uploading it to YouTube, I failed to actually write this post.

This year is the fifth year that I've asked him exactly the same set of questions (created by Emma from A Matter of Choice in 2012); we started on his third birthday and it's amusing and fascinating to see how his personality and tastes have changed.

A Sprinkle of Summer Fun Memories!

When I think back to my childhood, there are some memories which are far more vivid than others: pretending our picnic table was a stage and performing for my family; playing in the paddling pool with my brothers and sister; and quickly slurping up the juice of a refreshing lolly before it dribbled down my chin and onto my knees.

Last weekend we travelled down to the New Forest for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday celebrations. This involved […]

Beach Memory Jars

Memories made at the beach last a lifetime. As far as I'm concerned, this is completely true! However, sometimes it helps to have a little something to aid the memories. My sister pointed out a glass jar to me recently which had 'Sand from our favorite beach' printed on it. I really liked the idea, […]

Dinosaur DNA (Review)

When we go on holiday to Lyme Bay, we always enjoy exploring the Jurassic Coast and trying to find fossils from millions of years ago. Of course, we rarely succeed so usually end up buying one of those fossil digging kits. You know, the ones which aren't actually very good and children get bored of? […]
