Spring Time!

I love Spring. Although- I do not love the hayfever that comes along with it… But other than that – I love Spring! The kids spend most afternoons outside, we get to play in our garden and the sweet warm days leading into summer get longer and hotter!!

He had retired from his job as school principle and built the house. We as young kids watched the house being […]

Bus Trip

That doesn’t include school buses – Im talking public transport buses… Its just something you dont need to do when you and your friends get cars and drivers licenses at 17! Plus everything (school/shops/work/home) was within 20 minutes walking […]

This time around has been a bit different. The weather has been ok and we have been able to get out at some stage each day. Last week we […]

Pippa @ 2.8

Pippy has well and truly entered the “terrible twos”. Such a horrible name – but so true! Tantys galore over here at the moment. She is such a beautiful child – but when shes had enough – shes had enough. Her favourite games are little people and playing mums and babies with her big sisters. […]
