LTA & Britmums: Tennis For Kids

Despite not being very athletic as a child, there were a few sports that I really did enjoy taking part in; namely tennis and swimming.

As The Boy is getting older, I am keen to involve him in sports to ensure that he has a healthy attitude to keeping fit with exercising being the norm. I am acutely aware though that, just like his father and I, he is not a big fan of rough and tumble sports or even competitive team games. I've spotted him on the playground playing football with his friends, and it's fair to say that other than kicking the ball, he doesn't have a clue about the rules!

It's proved a bit of a challenge to find sporty activities for him that he'll engage in. He's started swimming regularly with daddy, and goes to gymnastics every Sunday, but the one he's passionate about has eluded us.

That is until the opportunity to experience tennis came along!

10 Things You Can't Do With A Broken Wrist!

As I've previously moaned, last week I broke my wrist, fracturing both my ulna and radius, and this has resulted in me having my radius surgically fixed with a plate screwed into both bits of the fractured bone. When my mum fractured her humerous eight years, I hadn't realised quite how restrictive it was, BUT I DO NOW!

Whoops, I Did It Again!

I'm quite a slow person.

I don't mean to be self-deprecating or derogatory in any way (how odd that I'm apologising to myself in case I'm offended by own blog post), it's just that I'm not the quickest firecracker in the box.

Disney On Ice: Silver Anniversary Edition

It's that time of year again when the spectacular that is Disney On Ice takes to arenas around Britain to showcase some of the best choreography set to the familiar and comforting world of magical, childhood music. This year is the Silver anniversary commemorating a wonderful 25 years of magical ice-dancing, and the show this year will see Mickey and Minnie Mouse take audiences to four far-away lands in one action-packed ice adventure: the African Pride Lands with The Lion King's Simba, Timon and Pumbaa; voyage deep under the sea to The Little Mermaid's mystical underwater kingdom; tour London with Peter Pan and Wendy before flying to Neverland to join Tinker Bell and the lost boys; before being whisked away to the wintery wonderland of Frozen's Arendelle for an extraordinary adventure with Anna and Elsa.

Natural Childhood

Going Ape in the New Forest!

There is nothing that The Boy loves more than clambering up a tree. It provides a real sense of achievement and connecting with the natural world in that manner really grounds the soul, uplifting and revitalising the body. Last weekend we travelled down to the New Forest for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday celebrations. This involved […]

The Museum For Trees

She looked at me aghast, her eyes wide in horror at the mere suggestion, "No no! They can't climb trees! We're a conservation area! They might damage the trees, plus of course the danger to themselves!"

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, […]

Hexbug Nano V2 (Review)

Over the past few years, I've spotted the craze that is Hexbugs and debated buying a set for my son. Recently, he was sent a Hexbug Nano V2 set to review, and this was perfect timing to find out whether to invest in expansion packs for Christmas or not.
