Tennis For Kids

LTA Tennis For Kids 1

The Summer sun shone down caressing the back of my neck, the warm late-afternoon breeze blew in from the sea, and the distinct zip and pop of green balls echoed around the courts as I watched my soon-to-be-seven year old squealing with glee in his first tennis lesson.

Interplay Powered Hovercraft (Review)

Capture

The Boy has really reached the inquisitive stage with his toys, and by that I mean the 'let's take this apart and see how it works' stage. You know the one, it's very much the same as the 'Mummy, this doesn't work anymore' stage, and the 'Mummy! Could you help me fix this please?' stage. (I remember my brother hitting this stage, he took apart my his Action Man, couldn't get both legs back on it and we had to rechristen it InAction Man due to his one-leggedness).

Therefore when we offered the chance to review the Powered Hovercraft from Interplay, we jumped at the chance! An opportunity for The Boy to make his own powered toy, learn how it fits together, and then not need to take it apart again after? Yes please!

March, April and May of Project 366

April skies part 2

I'd say that I have absolutely no idea what's happened to the past seven weeks, but that would be a lie! A fractured wrist doesn't sound that serious or too much of an injury, but in all honesty it has been one of the hardest things to recover from that I've had to deal with. I was lucky to have the surgery and receive such brilliant after-care, but April has past by in a whirlwind of surgery, appointments and physiotherapy. Being unable to use both arms has been frustrating and there have been many tears. I have a completely different appreciation and more understanding now for the children in school with broken arms!

The thought of trying to do this post properly is way too much to deal with! I know that I've taken a photo every day because, unable to crochet and do my daily row for my Sky Blanket, I've photographed the sky to record the colour and be able to play catch up at another time. What it does show is that actually the past seven weeks have been quite sunny and we've had some lovely blue skies. The first photo is from today, the last photo is from dawn on the day after I'd broken my wrist and was returning from hospital at 6am.

To add to the abundance of blue skies, I've also got a smattering of photos of normal life; flowers from friends, days out from before my accident and play in the garden or crafting with The Boy.

I can't wait to get back to normality!

LTA & Britmums: Tennis For Kids

LTA 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!
