Christmas at Bluestone: Day 2

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 2

After all the travelling on Monday, we felt the need to do relaxing things on the second day of our midweek break at Bluestone.

Seaweed Bath

My Tuesday began with a seaweed bath at The Well Spa. It was a really lovely atmosphere, walking down to the village in the morning. All the Christmas lights made it feel rather magical. I especially loved the lights on The Well Spa!

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 1

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 1

As is often the way at this time of year, there are lots of nasty bugs and viruses going around. I’ve managed to catch a lot of them, being unwell from the end of September until now (with the exception of only one week!) I’ve been particularly poorly over the last couple of weeks since we got back from Bluestone. Unfortunately, it’s put me behind with everything. My poor little blog has had hardly any attention. Just working and looking after Autumn has taken up all my energy!

Anyway, that’s enough whining. I’m excited because I can finally write about our lovely week at Bluestone, visiting Elftopia (Kingdom of the Elves) and seeing many of the things that Christmasland had to offer! I’ve been itching to write a diary of our week. It will be lovely for Autumn to look back on when she’s older! View Post

A letter to my daughter at 14 months

A letter to my daughter at 14 months

Dear Autumn,

This month we’ve been busy bees! Speaking of which, one of your most favourite TV programmes is Maya the Bee and you love saying “Bee! Bee!” As the weather has turned colder, we’ve been staying indoors a bit more. However, we’ve still managed to get out and about exploring. You even went on your first holiday! Let’s take a little look at your month… View Post

Easy bookkeeping for young families

Easy bookkeeping for young families

For most young families, bookkeeping is rarely the first thing on their mind. There’s so much else going on in life that leaving money to take care of itself often happens, whether by accident or design.

Simple bookkeeping can help in many ways. From saving for a rainy day to simply anticipating upcoming expenses, when you’re in control of your money you get a sense of security and satisfaction. View Post

6 Highlights of our Christmas trip to Bluestone

6 Highlights of our Christmas trip to Bluestone

We were recently invited for a midweek break at Bluestone, Wales. Pembrokeshire is such a beautiful part of the world and we’ve previously been on holiday there for our honeymoon and first anniversary/babymoon. I’ve heard wonderful things about Bluestone, so I was very excited. To add to the excitement, at this time of year, it transforms into Christmasland. There are lots of Christmas activities on, including Kingdom of the Elves which I’ve heard so much about. This year’s theme is a visit to Elftopia.

I want to blog in more detail about our week away soon, but first, here are my 5 top highlights! View Post
