Blogmas 8.

It's Friday.  I bloody love Fridays and this Friday is also my Christmas work do.  It's my first Christmas at my current workplace so not sure how raucous things get.  Will I did paracetomal in the morning or will I be home by 10?  I'll report back tomorrow,

Have you got a work do?  Rowdy or tame?

Christmas Countdown - Blogmas 10 - Fox Attack & Snow!!!

Blogmas 10 Sunday

Fox Attack & Lots of snow!

Today I was awoken by sad news and excited children.

Sadly a fox has attacked our hens. One is gone without even a feather left behind and one is injured. Thankfully hen number 3 is unscathed. I feel awful as we didn't shut their door. My daughter heard a noise just after 7 and looked out her window and a fox was there but ran away when the lights were turned on.


My gorgeous Archie has gone and Nugget is injured but so far doing well. I can't believe it and have decided foxes are most definitely of the Christmas card list. My children are quite matter of fact about it as it but I've shed a tear.  I think because all evidence of Archie has gone its not quite as real to them. When Jagger died (thankfully of natural causes) my son was very upset. They are our pets so I'm really hoping Nugget will pull through. I've hand fed her and checked her frequently so fingers crossed.

On a brighter note we had LOTS of snow. Quite often it misses us her in Northampton and I must say I was very surprised. The kids wrapped up and were playing outside just after 7!

 

We've been sledging which was great and built a large if rather wonky snowman.


I really do need to get some new wellies though. Mine have vanished into thin air. I've only had them a year or two and they were nice ones from Next but they are nowhere to be seen. Very annoying. But never mind I'll add to my rather long must get list. I really need to finish my Christmas shopping.

How's yours going?  Did you get snow?

Christmas countdown - Blogmas 11 - Snow day & Sofas


11th December

Snow day & Sofas

Well today was an unexpected day off. I was quite glad as woke up with a really sore throat & headache however by 10am the kids were bickering and I was considering work being an easier option kids!

Our new sofa was due today but I'd had no communication from the company & with the snow had no idea if it was coming. We had requested after 3.30 as I'd normally be at work but they couldn't guarantee a time. Very helpful.  Well it's a good job school was cancelled as they arrived at 10.30 with 10 minutes notice!

Luckily my brother & sister popped in & helped get my monster old sofa out! Thanks #teamremoval

I've also been happy to be home so I could keep an eye on my poorly hen. She's been amazing & I'm hoping she'll be OK. She's eating, drinking and walking so fingers crossed her wound heal quickly.

So all in all a busy unexpected day off with sledging thrown in for snowy cheer. After a few strops from the boy we had several good sledge attempts  before cold hands & feet sent us home. I really need to get some new wellies   fake uggs are not great in the snow!

Finally we watched Mickey Mouse Christmas and now Elf is on and I'll make dinner soon.

How's your day been?

Christmas Countdown - Blogmas 9 - Saturday Rest


Blogmas 9. Saturday

Today was a day of recovering & housework & snuggling on the sofa.

I had my works Christmas do last night which was brilliant fun.

My son decided to have a PJ day which I think is needed sometimes & my daughter is snuggled in her favourite I'm a Cat hoodie.

Just watching the end of Nativity 3. I'm not really sure if its cheesily good or terrible.  What do you think?

Christmas Countdown - Blogmas 7

Blogmas day 7 and 17 days to go!!!

Today is work and school but I feel positively brimming with festive cheer as will be watching the little ones in the Nativity.  You can't help but smile and feel happy hearing tunes such as Away in a Manager and Little Donkey. I hope the shepherd's have tea towels on their heads and the angels have misshapen tinsel halos.

My daughter has once been an angel and just looked gorgeous and my son's moment of glory was a sheep playing a saxophone!

Do you love a school nativity?  What parts have your children been?

Christmas Countdown - Blogmas 3


Today is Sunday 3rd December.  I have a day of housework and a visit to my friend to exchange presents for our children and a gossip.  As we are both busy this was the only slot we had before Christmas.  Do you find the same thing? My weekends are pretty full and with school we are busy all the way up to Christmas.  I do love all the festivities but also the odd evening wrapped in a blanket on the sofa.

What are you up to today?  How's the Christmas shopping going?

Christmas Countdown - Blogmas 2 - Tree Reveal

I know for some people this is far too early but I always put my Christmas tree up the first weekend in December and it comes down 31st January as I like to start the year with a clean & tidy living room.

We moved 3 years ago and now have a bay window so get a real tree.  This year we got it from Billing Garden Centre.  They have a brilliant selection and currently 20% off if you have a store card.

Well anyway without anymore waffle here is my gorgeous tree.

Santa Grotto Review - Enchanted Forest Weston Favell Northampton

On Sunday I was invited to try out the new Santa's Grotto at Weston Favell.

This year they have gone for an enchanted forest theme with 120 real life fir trees! Believed to be the first live forest to be created in an indoor shopping centre, you walk through the fairy lit forest to meet the one and only Father Christmas/Santa.  Little ones can meet Spud and Eve Weston Favell's own elves and spot the animals as they walk through.  There is a small craft area at the beginning for children to decorate a tag and write their wish list.

I loved the real trees but I did think they would be more spaced out creating more of a forest walkthrough but the effect is nice. The lights are lovely and staff really good.  Santa's cabin is really cosy & well decorated just as you'd imagine.  Santa was very authentic and little ones will love him. 



My 7 year old said he did a very good job even though he's Santa's helper and must have been trained by the real Santa well so praise indeed. (He believes the real Santa stays in the North Pole because he's busy but sends helpers to the grottos.)



It costs £4 per child and my children both received a book as a gift.  If you book online there is a booking fee.

I think it was good value for money and a nice experience.  After you can purchase the usual photos and key rings.  I bought the basic package for £10 as it was a nice photo and my 10 year probably won't come to a grotto again sob!


The Grotto is open from 17th November 2017 - 24th December 2017. 

Address for those unfamiliar with Weston Favell is -

West Lodge Rural Centre Review

I love West Lodge and have been several times but never actually wrote a review.  We went this week for the Halloween October Half term event but West Lodge is a brilliant place to visit all year round.

West Lodge Rural Centre

They have events throughout the year so check the website for details.  We paid £7.45 each to enter and £1 each for the spooky tractor ride.  It is slightly cheaper if you book online and there are family of 4 tickets which work out at £6 each and under 2's are free.

West Lodge has animals, pig racing, petting corner, a huge outdoor play area, cafĂ©, various walking trails and the new indoor play area.  It caters for all weathers with the new indoor play area although its obviously nicer when the sun shines.  We were there for nearly 6 hours and the kids loved it.  The barrel ride is always a big hit and they can go on as many times as they are happy to queue.  We also loved the walk to the witch's house in the woods and spotting the fairy doors along the way.




As it was the Halloween event pumpkin carving (additional fee), wand making, spooky stories, spooky tractor ride (£1 per person) and scary walkway were all available and great fun.  We took snacks but food and drink is available including freshly made baguettes and jacket potatoes from £3.95 and meals from £5.95. They also have a children's menu from £2.99.  They usually have a good cake selection too but sadly at 2pm they had all gone apart from one sad looking slice of dried chocolate cake boo!!!  So had to make do with a cup of tea and hot chocolate instead and luckily the kids were happy with the bits we'd brought in.




I can 100% recommend West Lodge for a fab family day out for all pre schooler and primary school age kids.  If you want to see a bit more then check out my short video.


Turtle Bay Northampton Review

On Wednesday we were lucky enough to go to Turtle Bay for a 3 course meal.  I'd been to the preview evening so knew the food would be good but was excited to be able to try a full meal and rare weeknight outing away from the kids.

I was surprised to see it quite busy at 7pm on a Thursday but we were seated and served quickly.  I love the low level lighting and fairy lights and think it creates a lovely atmosphere.  Sadly we had just missed the 2 for 1 cocktails so check out the times before you book if you are a cocktail fan.



Whilst perusing the food menu I had a Bay Bramble cocktail which tasted like a grown up Ribena and I can definitely recommend and Stuart decided on a pint of Red Stripe. 

For starters I chose the Classic Beef Batty and Stuart ordered the Crispy Chilli Squid.  Stuart said the Chilli Squid was excellent and would definitely order again.  Mine was good but I would try another option next time.




For the mains we both went for one pot options.  I had the Curry Goat which was amazing but slightly too hot for me.  The rice was cooked perfectly and I was really glad I tried it having never eaten goat before going to Turtle Bay.  Stuart ordered the Bajan Beef Cheeks which he said were brilliant and the beef was melt in the mouth.



We decided on another drink and I tried a Raspberry Reggae Rum which was also delicious but the Bay Bramble topped it for me and Stuart had another Red Stripe.



Finally we looked at desserts.  I love Lemon Meringue so I had to try the Passion Pie which was amazing!!! Stuart decided not to have a dessert but was tempted by the Fresh BBQ Pineapple.

We had a great night and will definitely return with friends soon.  My only criticism is that the tables do not have cocktail lists so you need to ask for one each time you want to order a new drink.  This is a minor point but is something they could maybe add.  Our service was great and I think Turtle Bay is a brilliant addition to the Northampton dining scene.

For all food and drink options click on the link

10 things that prove you are a school run mum.

10 things that prove you are a school run mum

1. You will have to make packed lunches for years!!!

2. You will be responsible for book bags, reading records, pe kits, swimming bags, homework, signing multiple letters, remembering bake sales and charity mufti money.

3. If you forget any of the above you will be a terrible mother.

4. You will curse homework projects such a making a model fire engine or volcano.

5. Unless you are the uber mum everyone is jealous off and makes a stunning Pinterest inspired creations with ease.

6. You will dread and love parents evenings in equal measures. The rush, speed dinner/snack and double school run! But the happiness of a good report. Pat on the back all round.

7. The daily 'Get your shoes on' conversation/shout.

8. You feel like a cart horse rather than human as you juggle coats, book bags, lunch boxes, must have trip letter and your own things! Heaven forbid a child can carry their own stuff.

9. You will love the Christmas nativity and out of tune carols. Even though the hall is 25 degrees, you can't really see and the chairs are made for tiny infants.

10. You finally get the need for multiple school holidays and breathe a sigh of relief on the Friday afternoon pick up when no school runs stretch ahead. RELAX. Who am I kidding? Relax, you now have to entertain the kids but at least you don't need to set the alarm or make bloody pack lunches.
