Discovering Somewhere New

Since the beginning of lock down we haven’t really been making the most of being able to have daily exercise. We don’t drive and live in quite a small town so there hasn’t really been anywhere for us to go. I have to admit that I’ve been quite jealous seeing people on Instagram having walks in fields, woods and even super quiet walks along the beach. The most we have done is have 1 family walk with Erin and her bike. I think we have been going a bit stir crazy though and we were really in need of really

Family Fun From Spin Master

AD | Post contains gifted items and affiliate links (marked with *) Spending more time at home at the minute means that we are doing more things as a family. John is working from home so gets a lunch break and is also ‘home’ earlier than he would be if he was at the office. We are also spending loads of time together at the weekends but we can run out of ideas sometimes, especially if we’re stuck inside on a miserable day. Luckily, Spin Master have come to the rescue with a selection of games for the whole family.

The Countdown To Reception

It seems like a lifetime ago when we applied for Erin’s place at infant school. Due to everything else that has been going on lately the day for admission announcements kind of got forgotten.

One is a 2 minute walk away from our house and the other is right across town. We don’t drive so Erin not getting in to our first choice would have made things quite difficult. Thankfully we
