WILD AT THE WEEKEND: BIRMINGHAM NATURE CENTRE
Before I was struck with a case of the nasties, we managed to get some cousin time in at the Nature Centre in Birmingham.  Sadly it really wasn't all it used to be and so I'm putting every mother's advice about when to speak into practice - but we did have ...

SLUGS AND SNAILS...AND BULBS IN THE MAIL
It's not often that I take " warts and all " photos of the boys when I know they're heading for a blog post.  Generally there's a clearing of the planned photo site, and some care is taken over what they're wearing.  This isn't one of those posts.  This is ...

Summer Raspberry Photo Frame [Bostik Bloggers]
This month our Bostik Blogger challenge theme was scrapbooking.  After we were married, I became an avid scrapbooker and captured so any memories in huge 12" x 12" padded albums - but as a busy mom, it's been too much of a challenge to keep up with it and s...

CHATTY FEET, WE'VE GOT THOSE CHATTY FEET...
There's a bright, floral box next to our airing cupboard that contains one of the distinguishing features of most families I know...socks.  With three boys there are an awful lot of socks in the house and despite my best efforts [and those of the really lov...

MINI SUPERHEROES WEEK
As a paid-in-full member of the three boys club , my learning curve on superheroes has been rather steep.  Pre-Jones Boys, I knew nothing of them aside from that I thought Dean Cain made the best Superman [he really did] and that Michael Keaton was not the ...

THE SUN IS AWAKE, SO....
I love the bedrooms in our house.  My bedroom in particular has the most beautiful light flowing through it and it's where I take most of my photographs.  But, as with most things in life, you have to take the rain with the sunshine.  And at this time of th...

PURE AND SIMPLE [WILDFLOWERS COMPANY]
I used to believe that for flowers to take my breath away, they had to be pink, long stemmed and heavily scented.  When I opened the chic, understated box from Wildflowers Company this month, I completely fell in love.  The simple combination of white bloom...

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW [CUPCAKE PARTY]
Getting Lyoto to sit and eat at the table can be a huge challenge some days - and most days I won't even waste my energy on it because, as a good friend of mine says, I don't want to die on that mountain.   As long as he's fed and watered, I know the stage ...

HAPPY 70TH BIRTHDAY, THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE!
Today, Fisher Price sent us the  Thomas and Friends Break Away Bridge Set   to play with.  It's Thomas' 70th birthday and he's celebrating by going off the rails!  Naturally, I'm kidding - Thomas is a sensible little engine and in his little playset, after ...

BLUESTONE NATIONAL PARK: DAY 2
We awoke on day two of our stay at Bluestone to the most breathtaking views. I know I'm biased, but there's something so tranquil yet invigorating about the Welsh countryside.  I always feel like I'm home. [Day One of our Bluestone holiday is here] The boys...

Baby Hero is nearly 10 months old and he's been enjoying a mixture of puree and solid foods since he was 7 months old or thereabouts [I knew to the day with Jensen - poor third child].  As he's our most keen eater yet [read: we're worried as a teenager he w...
