We have been blessed with some gorgeous weather lately, and Summer has definitely arrived! This weekend it’s been all about the garden for us. On Saturday I went to Gardener’s World Live, which was fab and full of garden inspiration and yesterday we spent the entire day outside. This week’s guest post is all about enjoying your garden and making the most of it.
We were lucky enough to be invited to a day at Newmarket races last Saturday to kickstart the season of their Summer Saturdays.

Ahhhh! It’s Father’s Day on Sunday. Are you all organised? Or are you like me and leave everything to the last minute. Well don’t despair because we’ve used a little of our imagination and come up with this really simple homemade Father’s Day gift. A jar of essentials for Father’s Day, what more could any daddy want? It’s so simple you can rustle it up in no time at all, using things that you probably have lying around the house already. I have even included a FREE download of the jar label and daddy voucher to make this homemade Father’s Day gift even speedier to put together.
We were lucky enough to be one of 100 bloggers taking part in the BritMums #PrezzoLaFamiglia challenge sponsored by Prezzo. The challenge was to celebrate the new La Famiglia sharing pasta bowl, actively encouraging family style dining and promoting the importance of eating together.

Father’s Day is fast approaching, and I don’t know about you but I always struggle for ideas. Not just for my dad, but also for James on behalf of the kids. This year I wanted to think outside the box, and find some unique and unusual gifts for Father’s Day. This is my round up of my favourite Father’s Day gift ideas with a twist!
We were lucky enough to spend our half term on holiday in the Mediterranean with the kids. This was the first time the children had been on an aeroplane, but with some pre-holiday research and some careful planning it was a breeze. So here are my top tips for flying with children.
