Mothecombe beach – #CountryKids

The weather forecast for the week that we were on holiday in Devon wasn’t as amazing as it had been earlier in the summer, so we decided to go to the beach on our second day there, the best looking day of the forecast, just in case we didn’t get another chance. Grandma and Pop had recently invested in a

We went to a kids activity morning at the church across the road earlier this week. We had so much fun! They had hired a community circus run by a guy called Kevin (www.kevinscircus.com). He brought with him all his circus gear and the kids could play with it. There were ride on silly bikes, stilts, funny hats and shoes,

Pennywell farm – #CountryKids

When the boys’ Grandma asked people with small children where are some good places to go with little ones in the area local to them, most people said Pennywell Farm near Buckfastleigh in Devon. It’s been going for 25 years, but they hadn’t been as a family when Daddy and his brother and sister were little, so we decided that

I know this isn’t a great photo in terms of picture quality, but I love the expressions on their faces – Andrew doing his ‘fake’ smile because I had just asked him to carry on laughing like he had been until I’d managed to whip my camera out, and Joel doing a classic  grin that he does so well. I

‘Counting’ – wot so funee?

Most of my wot so funee? posts so far have been about Andrew’s toddlerisms. But Joel has just started to produce some hilarious funees in his speech. He doesn’t say a lot, but what he does say is great! Recently he’s become very keen to ‘count’ before doing something – for example the ‘1-2-3-wheeeee’ game that we play when two

One activity that we did this week was decorating some gingerbread men that Granny kindly bought us. Andrew was keen to decorate his, but Joel was more keen to just eat it! He allowed me to help him put some smarties on first though. I love to get comments and always reply, so why not let me know what you

Not my photo, but it’s the best one of the 2 boys from this week. Now that we live in Birmingham, Grandad has every excuse to buy the boys Birmingham City FC goodies, including these kids kits. A little big, but they’ll soon grow into them. I love to get comments and always reply, so why not let me know

Fighting arrows – wot so funee?

A while ago in a wot so funee? post I shared how Andrew kept going on about “fighting arrows at Grandma and Pop’s house”. I had no idea what he was talking about, until one day we were in the 99p shop with Granny, who had said that each boy could have £1 to choose a toy to buy. Andrew’s

This was taken at the start of our day trip to London on Friday to see Alice in Wonderland at Holland Park. I didn’t manage to get many other photos of the day, because keeping track of two little ones and where we had to go in London was on our minds rather than snapping. But we had a really

Nooooooo! – wot so funee?

I have loads of funees from Andrew noted down in my phone but I haven’t had chance to write them up into a post. But Joel has been hilarious this week with his new found way of saying no! He still doesn’t say many words, he’s far too interested in climbing, running, generally getting into mischief than talking about it.
