Seaside Rock

We managed a rare night away without the kids this weekend (thanks Mum). We took a trip to Worthing as my fella had a gig there at a punk all-dayer. We stayed at the adequate if dull Travelodge, which is right on the seafront and had the added benefit of being only 50 yards from the gig venue. In all honesty this was the only 50 yards of Worthing we saw, tho luckily it included the promenade and pier. Lovely bit of traditional British seaside-ness, complete with nasty concrete multi-story car parks and an air of nostalgia. Beer, noisy punk rock, chips and a stroll along the prom – what more can you ask for from a night out? Here are some pics…

Talking Sh*t

Syd likes to talk. A lot. He has currently been talking for 90 minutes, he is actually out of breath from forgetting to pause for breath. He is at that age where he has totally got the knack of all the words, even the long ones and the ones with -st at the end (he now takes great care with those after a chat where one of us was talking about ghosts, and the other thought the subject matter was goats, very confusing).

Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Review

In a Nintendo crazy house there is only one character who comes close to claiming Mario’s crown of popularity – Kirby. Not only do we have all the games, but both boys have stuffed toy Kirbys, I have made a Kirby birthday cake and just last week you could find me making Syd a homemade Waddle Dee plush. As you can imagine, this means there was much anticipation for the latest game in the series, especially as it had an earlier release in other parts of the world which meant they could increase their excitement watching youtube videos of others playing the game.

On Parties And Discos.

So if you are of a lefty persuasion like me, last Friday was more than a disappointment – it made us angry, it made us weep, it made us fearful – but more than that it made us determined.

General Election Outcome – My Dad’s thoughts.

I was going to write something about my reaction to the outcome of the election yesterday. But then my Dad sent me this email, and it said everything I felt really. So instead of my thoughts, here are his. My Dad rocks.

Visiting Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World

Visiting Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World

My favourite thing about Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World is that there is something for everyone. My kids range from almost 4 to 18 with an eleven year old in the middle, so many attractions fail to appeal to them all. But the very biggest rides here are good enough for my bigger two to enjoy, yet there is plenty aimed at the smallest member of the group too.

Sometimes I Am Lost For Words….

When I started this blog, on a whim – just over three years ago, I used to write anything that was in my head. I didn’t over think it, or worry about stats or whether anyone was even reading it. It was just a way of keeping myself company while at home with a young baby.

Election Apathy

Election Apathy

I am PASSIONATE about politics as a rule. I have strong ideas about wanting things to be better, fairer, kinder, happier, less greedy, less money orientated, huggy, snuggly and warm. Yet this election is leaving me a little bit meh to be honest.
