Today is the 28th of January-which is also known as my Husband’s Birthday-his 32nd this year!
When prepping my work for this month, and getting his presents and Birthday plans sorted, I realised I’ve never used my website to tell the story of us (me and Hubs, not you and I dear reader).
So, what better day to tell it, than on the day we celebrate another year of his life!
I know it’s Christmas-a time for magic, happiness, excitement and love. And I don’t want to put a downer on you, my lovely readers, at Christmas, but I also don’t think pretending mine is full of the above is normal either.
If I’m honest, this post has been a long time coming, and, if no one else reads it, I’ll at least get it all off of my chest and out of my head.
The point of this post, is basically that I am grieving for a Mother who is still alive, which isn’t a new feeling-it’s not a new grief, it’s something I’ve been processing for a long time-four years to be precise. Continue reading
A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Olivia’s 4th Birthday-and boy, does that girl know how to drag out Birthday celebrations (goodness knows where she gets it from…..)
I’ll attach a vlog I put together over the week, at the end of this blog, but first I wanted to review a couple of places we visited during the celebrations. Continue reading
MAYFLOWER BLOGS TURNED 1 TODAY!!!
1 whole year, of blogs, reviews, comments, shares, editing, learning, vlogging and everything in between!
I genuinely never assumed I’d get to this point-I worried at the beginning that I’d not be very good at this writing lark, and maybe my unorganised mind would mean I wouldn’t cope. Continue reading
Today my girl turns 4!
Recently, I realised, I’ve never written about Olivia’s birth. I’ve mentioned it in previous blogs-of course I have. Many of my readers are well aware she was our rainbow baby after our three miscarriages.
But I think it’s important for her to have her own story-her own words-to look back on when I’m old and grey (and probably more forgetful than I am now).
So here you are SWEET-PEA-this is your story. And it all begins 4 years ago today……
Let me introduce you to the brand new way to send Happy Birthdays, Congratulations, or a way to just say SURPRISE!!! With the Boomf brand new WILD CARDS!!
As you can see, there are 8 brand new, kid friendly cards for you to choose from-each with their own little characters! A fox, monkey, dog, cat, robot, frog, unicorn and tiger-something for everyone! Continue reading
A blog I’ve been wanting to write for a long time seems perfect to do this weekend ready for my Dad’s Birthday.
“A daughters first love “
I read a lot of quotes, I use a lot-especially in my blogs, then I decide whether I believe them or not! However, there’s not a shred of doubt that the above quote is 100% true. Continue reading
In one week I’m turning 31.
31 years of Birthday’s, each one, up until now, celebrated and enjoyed.
Until this one that is. Continue reading
Last weekend, we took our Kye for a surprise Birthday treat to London. And, as Jamie Oliver is his absolute hero, we surprised him with a lunch to his Italian Restaurant in Piccadilly.
Upon arrival, the Front of House staff took my booking details, and, seeing it was Kye’s Birthday, addressed him as the Birthday Boy-something he (and we) really appreciated!
Kye was given a menu viewer, and, although he knew he wanted a burger, he still loved flicking through, and it gave us the opportunity to choose our lunch at our own pace too. He was also given a kids pack, with some activities in to do-he was thrilled to be given it!
We chose to have a burger as well, and once we’d all ordered, they served us drinks, and Kye was super excited to have water with fresh strawberries in.
The food was served quickly, our burgers were cooked perfectly, and my husband had ordered Garlic Bread too-which was literally out of this world.
Kyes mini kids burgers, were demolished within minutes, and he stole some of his Dad’s garlic bread too! We kept one of the little flags from the top of one of the burgers, to bring home for his memory box (we hope the restaurant don’t mind!)
Kye had to be forewarned that Jamie himself wouldn’t be at the restaurant, but he was still so happy to be there, and watching the chefs cook and yell random things in their Italian accents, captured his attention (and my husband’s) throughout our visit.
Because it was half term, there was an offer on kids meals too-something I hadn’t realised until we went. For every main meal purchased by an adult, the child eats free!
This offer is still on until the the 26th of February, and is for all Jamie’s Italian restaurants, so definitely take advantage of that if you are near to one!
