First day at school

Today you head into what would be year one. I see pictures of excited children walking into school with their friends and for a brief second the 'you are different' moment hits. It's not for long, you go back to a place you love, you have your friends in your own...

Can it not be the end of the summer please!

Back in July I set a little challenge this summer holidays I wanted to achieve things, go places, have laughs and make memories. A few months back I didn’t know what I’d be able to do or not do, when I knew we could do anything I wanted I made my My six weeks...

A letter to Z’s teacher 2018

The last official day of the school holidays. Next week Z returns to school. He'll return to a new teacher. Its getting easier each year for me! I think Z just goes with the flow. Of course I always worry, new class new teacher and a child that can't tell me how his...

West Midlands Safari Park

We'd never been here before so decided to give it ago, I was a little gutted after I'd booked to find that I could have used my Tesco clubcard vouchers ! Off we set with not knowing what to expect after our 4am wake up.. I just just knew there were animals and rides....

Folly Farm with friends

As part of my challenges I set this summer a Zoo was on my list. We visited Folly farm, I know Z enjoys it so a few of us all went. It was a disaster from the start! Z had a full on meltdown going in because it's all new since we were there last. All he wanted to do...

Shiremoor Adventure Park

When we were visiting my sister she said take a look and see what you fancy, that's when I said about the boat ride. We were sitting there one day and she said oh I know of a place Z will love, it has random opening hours as it's a community run place, we had around...

Farne Island Boat Trip.

One of my things I wanted to do with Z was take him on a boat. Now I didn't know A) How he would be, B) If he hated it what would I do and C) If he had a meltdown 45 minutes in would he survive the 45 minutes back?! What better way to try him than in a place no one...

A few days away in Newcastle

I took Z to visit my sister this week , ok she's not quite in Newcastle any more but it's easier to say she lives in Newcastle to my mates! The drive up on the Monday was great, no traffic at all we had a quick stop, Z hated the services and the only way I could get...
