Dancing in the rain


Dancing in the rain: Dancing in the rain is a childish fantasy that we all cherish, the feeling of warm rain droplets on your skin is truly unforgettable. Luckily Oliver loves the rain & where possible we make the most of the downpour, usually after the rain has stopped.20140527-221415-80055122.jpg I bought some waterproof trousers which I pop over Oliver's jeans & tuck into his welly boots, this stops his trousers getting wet & saves me on the washing, when we remember to put them on... 20140527-221416-80056640.jpg Seeing a puddle through Oliver's eyes has shown me that a puddle can be mysterious, it's filled with the sky, some leaves, a few muddy stones & your own reflection. I now try & take the time to slow down & enjoy watching him play with this small pool of water, it's so much fun. 20140527-221415-80055899.jpg It's a simple free activity & let's be honest, there's plenty of rain about at the moment so lots of puddles to play in.

Free water fun


Free water fun - I'm always looking for fresh ideas for fun activities with Oliver & Nanna never ceases to amaze me with her inventive free games. We often pop down in the afternoon for a cup of tea & Oliver is always itching to get upstairs & wash his hands in the bathroom sink as Nanna lets him play with cups & water. Today Nanna had a straw waiting for Oliver & let him blow the water making bubbles, he absolutely loved it!20140429-211834.jpg I'm very lucky as Nanna makes me a nice cup of tea & I get to relax whilst she entertains the children. 20140429-211826.jpg It was fabulous to listen to Oliver giggling away having fun & such a simple idea I just had to share! 20140429-211818.jpg You really don't need any instructions, just a little imagination & a few towels to hand as it's quite messy but it's only water. Thank you Mum for my rest & the children's fun, don't worry I won't share the song time videos. Michelle X



Crabbing - When my sister invited us to Littlehampton for a days crabbing I must admit I imagined using a net to scoop up crabs in rock pools, I never thought you could actually fish for them off of a pier, it's great fun & Oliver loved it!20140423-202059.jpg I got chatting to a few locals who recommended a local Fish & Chip shop, which was great even though it took an hour (loooooong queue). Once we had finished our Fish & Chips picnic on the grass we moved to the pier. 20140423-202524.jpg We bought a few crab lines, a few nets, some smoked bacon for bait & a bucket. 20140423-202116.jpg Ben & my sister Lisa cast the lines close to the pier in to some rocks & then we waited but not for long... The children were far too excited. 20140423-202322.jpg I highly recommend bringing a see through bucket so that you can watch the crabs once you've caught them. 20140423-202333.jpg The pier was busy with lots of people crabbing & everyone was really friendly, giving advise & happy to show off their catch. The equipment was under £10 but I've since seen it cheaper, so if you are thinking of going maybe buy the kit in advance to save a few pounds. 20140423-202127.jpg We finished off the day by letting the boys have a few rides in the theme park & have to say it was a fabulous day, even though a bit chilli...

Guaranteed toddler 5 a day


Guaranteed toddler 5 a day: I have always had a bit of a battle getting fruit & vegetables into Oliver, as soon as he could communicate the refusal started. I continue to give him fruit & vegetables on a daily basis but he really doesn't eat very much. The advise from the health visitor is don't stress but I really do want to know he's getting what he needs through his diet. Daisy has been a great advocate of juicing & after Oliver had a particularly bad bought of tonsillitis I convinced Ben we needed one too. 20140417-213300.jpg Oliver & I went to the farm shop & bought lots of lovely fruit, I made lots of different juices & lined them up in front of Oliver in shot glasses to let him try them. To my surprise Oliver drank them all, even a green one & asked for more....

20140417-213316.jpg We now juice regularly, using whatever fruit & vegetables we have & I have yet to make a juice that Oliver doesn't like.

20140417-213325.jpg Sometimes we just juice single fruits like berries, pears or apples but we also use Daisy's recipes...

I can't tell you how delighted I am that Oliver is finally having his 5 a day! Juicing is a great activity that we all get involved in & Oliver thinks a juice is a real treat, Happy Mummy - Michelle X

Tulleys Farm - Easter Egg-Stravaganza


Tulleys Farm - Easter Egg-Stravaganza: I must admit I'm not a great one for the big children's events as they are normally very noisy & busy but Nanna & I decided to brave Tulleys Farm with Oliver & his nephew Freddie as a alternative gift to chocolate. I have to say it wasn't to busy or too noisy & we all had a great time, especially the children!20140415-210422.jpg Open 10.00am to 5.00pm.
