My Weekly Round Up, Exciting Times Ahead

Wow this year is flying, I think I say that every week during my round up don’t it? Another half term has just gone and we have so much excitement ahead of us in the next few months that I just know that will fly too.

Time For Me

This week Karen from Mini Travellers and I have embarked on a new venture.  Me Time is aimed at making time for yourself and hopefully we will be embarking on a few adventures and taking a few friends along too.me time full sizeWe kicked off our venture in style with a spot of Go Ape adventure, I must say there is much more to it that meets the eye, but we had a fantastic day

Out & About

Last weekend Chris, Jack and I took a trip to Cheshire Oaks holiday shopping. I didn’t get one thing grrr. But I do find it very hard to shop with the family in tow. Chris and Jack however bought loads for their holidays. And I shopped for Joe, I got him quite a few bits, so it was a successful trip all round. Just not for me, but I find it so much easier shopping alone.

Fun At Home

We have been looking for next years Holidays this week. We are in a bit of turmoil. A Villa or Cruise holiday? Or both? I am thinking both but we will have to see how it goes.  I have been busy researching ships, ports and itineraries so all so exciting. I just need to make a decision.

My Happiest Moment

My happiest moment has to be Friday night when the boys came home from school. I was feeling a little sad at not getting though to the BIBS final, when they bounded in. I looked at them and thought you are why I do this, our little family.

Blogging about our adventures and the opportunities it has brought me is the reason I blog, anything else is a bonus. Don’t get me wrong I would have loved to get through. But I can’t stand sore losers so I will not become one myself.

I am so pleased for all those who got thought to the final and so proud that a couple of my blog besties are in that final list. Will also give myself a pat on the back for getting to the final 10 in an incredible category. I can’t wait until BritMums live, it is going to be amazing with or without and award. And I wish all the lovely finalists all the luck in the world.

Next Week I Would Love Too

Next week is going to be mega exciting, we are off on another Q Hotel journey and we can’t wait. We are off to Stratford Upon Avon and surrounding areas and are so excited about the week ahead. Lets just hope the weather is kind to us.

This Week I Love

This week I have been trying out Stamptastic. It is a name stamp system for school uniforms. Joe and I are currently looking at ways we can use it and are getting on great. I will post more on this later but want to get some great images first.

After that little lot my word of the week has to be Exciting

    oooo Me Time …sounds like a great venture will check it out. I tend to do most of my shopping online – how depressing, think you defiantly should go back alone! Well done you on reaching the final 10 thats amazing and a real achievement in itself. I am going to Britmums too so hopefully see you there 🙂 xx #HappyDaysLinky

    Hi Sarah, it must be exciting to be planning next years holiday already! And there is always next year for the BIB awards too (if at firs you don’t succeed!). Being a little disappointed doesn’t make you a bad loser, it just makes you human.

    I love the look of those stamps, but my two are past having their names in clothes….Maybe they wouldn’t notice?…

    I love Cheshire Oaks – but always find it way too much pressure taking the brood shopping – much better to go alone as you say. How lovely to be planning next year’s holidays, they both sound amazing :o)
