A few days ago i decided we should go “look at some nature” as my daughter says.
So we loaded everything on the buggy and headed up to the pond nearby. It didn’t quite go as planned (when does anything ever go to plan?) but at least we got a healthy dose of fresh air and then a heavy dose of uh… rain.
So After running home in the rain I decided to use up some of the huge number of plums we had on our tree to make jam. I now have A LOT of jam – I think we have enough plum jam to last until next year!

This is for mums who are bathing toddlers with one hand while simultaneously throwing up in the toilet (ah the joys of pregnancy sickness) or those who are waddling to the park and wondering where the nearest toilet is for their 20th toilet trip of the morning.

So here we go let’s delve into the world of large family pregnancy.

My 9 month old is just starting to enjoying playing with water and so today we used some quadroplay to make a little water pouring toy!
My original plan was a chapter or two a day but the kids loved the story and kept shouting more! So goosebumps – the ghost next door was a huge hit and finished in three days!
