HOUSEHOLD BUDGETING FOR BEGINNERS

0


It's JULY. 

Half the year has gone, passed me by and I'm thinking that maybe I just slept from February to now.  I vaguely recall promising myself that I would be more organised as a New Year's resolution - meal plan, budget,... you know how it goes at ten minutes to midnight.

PICTURE PERFECT [A WEEK ON INSTAGRAM]

0


This week I'm a week late with this post after the last Picture Perfect - getting back into the swing of things after being completely engulfed in school trips, appointments and meetings [not to mention getting stuck in London after the BML conference this past weekend] has been hard - and now this weather?! Ick! Party planning for Hero is feeling a bit soggy at the moment.

It's a miracle, but somehow I managed to keep the little gifts of a Go Jetter and Vroomster on the new Go Jetters magazine safe for a photograph before they disappeared into the land of trinkets and teeny toys!

2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY PLANNING: WILD WEST HERO

23

So... Summer.... Hmm....

I'm thanking my stars that I had to change the date of Hero's 2nd birthday party to August instead of keeping it at the start of July.  The rain is pelting down here and poor Hero hasn't even been out to get his "bum bounce" of the day on the trampoline.  This time two years ago when I was due with Hero, Jensen and I were baking in the sunshine at his reception class teddy bear picnic [and then I went into labour].  Today, daddy is going to be putting his umberella up at Lyoto's, and I'm putting the kettle on for a cup of my favourite hot chocolate.

We're over at Mum in the Madhouse again this week for her learning with manipulatives series with a favourite game of ours, pirate booty gems, to encourage math skills!  Enjoying maths at home really can help to build up confidence with your little ones, especially when you're a pirate.... arrrrr!

It's our fourth Picture Perfect post - and after last week's up-to-nothing half term, we're still pretty quiet here - but it's a good quiet.  We've been starting to clear the garden, and tomorrow we're off to spend Father's day with Kung Fu Panda!  Jensen and I have been on the HMS Victory - and I learned that the S stands for Ship, not Service as I thought.

Whether you've just got your ticket, or just realised it's only four days away, don't panic!  As usual I've left everything to the last minute through procrastination and doubt over whether I would in fact make it to the conference this year - but I'm pulling it together and sharing my ten steps to be ready for Britmums Live 2016.

[SECOND] TIME FOR TELETUBBIES...

This week we've been watching the new Teletubbies episodes on CBeebies.  We love CBeebies - it's home to our most beloved characters - Mr. Bloom, Mr. Tumble, Sid and Rebecca - and so we were excited to see what the new Teletubbies was like!
