You could call this a bucket list, I wouldn’t mind. I feel like I need to de-stress and have some happy time for me. I’ve struggled so much for a while, I just feel like I need to go somewhere (though a passport and a travel partner would be helpful. Though I wouldn’t not consider it just me and bear). I do love a staycation, I think there are many areas in Britain which are wonderful and beautiful and have lots to offer, but I would definitely love to travel abroad. Especially considering I haven’t since I was around 10/11. I’ve found some amazing little spots I’d love to see and visit and I’d love to share them with you!
Earlier this week, bear had a little accident involving his cot and his spider monkey climbing skills (he’s never done anything like this before and was so unexpected). So obviously, we’ve rethought his sleeping arrangements and have gradually tried to make things safer for him. Firstly, starting with removing the cot sides from the bed. This is a huge leap for me personally as I have so many worries about him injuring himself with free roam of his room, however, the potential injuries sustained from another accident like this would be much worse than I suspect he could do himself in there.

Currently, we live in a rented 2 bedroom terraced house. We’ve lived here for 5 years, but it definitely isn’t home for us. I’m constantly dreaming of our forever home. How would it look? Would we want a fixer upper, a little project to keep us going? How many rooms? Any particular features? Etc.
I am so so over winter. The weather this week has been absolutely dreadful. In fact, this season has been pretty crap, let’s be honest. I am dreaming of the slightly warmer weather (I don’t mind if I still have to wear a coat, I just don’t want my hands to freeze off) and I think Bear is getting a bit peed off about it being cold/wet/icy out, he just LOVES to be outside. I’ve started looking for things that are upcoming again in places local to us. Usually, pages of places we like on Facebook will add their upcoming events or I’ll have a nosey at websites such as Trafford Centre’s or Liverpool ONE’s.
It has recently been Christmas and I’m sure many of you have had to have a good clear out of your children’s old toys to make space for new ones. I know I did. Luckily I found one or two toys that didn’t work anyway & the rest are going to charity. Good deed done and space made. WIN. But one thing that firmly made it’s way into the toybox before Christmas, were these Fantasia Blocks* by Hape. We have reviewed another toy by this brand which you can read here which is also, still in the toybox (yaaayyy) and both are constantly scattered across the living room on a daily basis courtesy of the toddler (I’m exaggerating a little, they’re really not that big at all!)
