My Little Snapshots…

My Little Snapshots…

I haven’t posted a little snapshot post for a couple of weeks as we were in Cornwall last week on our family holiday and it was nice to take a bit of a break.

Andy has been off work for 2 weeks and its been really love to have him home with us. We are definitely a family that works better when we are all together. We’ve had a fun filled couple of weeks and we are going to miss Andy when he goes back to work on Tuesday.

Here is my little snapshot of the last couple of weeks…

A Holiday in Cornwall We headed to Cornwall for the week for the first time as a family and we had a brilliant time. Unfortunately Alice was poorly for a couple of days, but we still managed to fit a lot in. It’s a beautiful part of our country and we would love to go back.

My Big Girl Turned 6… While we were in Cornwall Alice turned 6! I can’t believe I have a 6 year old. We had a lovely day at St Michaels Mount and headed to Padstow for dinner. Alice loved having her birthday on holiday and we even squeezed in a dip in the hot tub. She was living her best life.

Time Just Us… Andy and I don’t get much time together just us two. But last weekend it was Andy’s birthday and the next day we went and did Segway together, while my parents had the girls. We hadn’t done it before, but we both loved it. I actually found it really relaxing and would love to do it again. It was really nice to spend some time together.

Andy’s Birthday…It was Andy’s birthday last weekend, it was on the day we travelled home from Cornwall. When we got home we gave him his presents and he was really pleased with his new North Face Mountain Jacket, from Mainline. It’s perfect for this time of year, when we have the odd shower. 

Out Of My Comfort Zone… This week I headed to London and did some filming with Mumsnet. It was completely out of my comfort zone and I had to do 2 hours of to camera filming, just me on my own. But once I got into it, I really enjoyed it and I’m pleased that I was pushed to do it.

Family Days Out… With Andy home this week, we’ve had a couple of days out. We headed to Legoland on Monday and Beaulieu on Wednesday. It’s been a really fun week and it’s not over yet! 

This weekend… Today is Holly’s birthday and my baby girl turns four (sob!) and we’re heading to Paultons Park for the day to celebrate. Then this weekend we are having all our family over for a little party for her.

I hope you all have a brilliant weekend, it’s a bank holiday weekend too!

Disclosure: We were kindly sent the North Face Jacket to include in this post. All views and photos are my own.
