Butlins, Making memories and family #LittleLoves

August 30, 2019

After feeling out of sync with everything during July I wanted to step back and take time out from it all. This month I have switched off more than I have done before. Ignoring my inbox, not getting involved with things that will bring me anxiety or drama. Focusing on family, time with the children and enjoying time together. It was just what the doctor ordered – sun, fun and ice cream.

Time for August’s #LittleLoves…

I’d put together a summer reading list in anticipation of lazy days in the garden with the children. However, we’ve opted to hit the road and enjoy family days out so the reading list is still sat there untouched.


With the children at home for the summer and no need to rush in the mornings (although they still get up at the crack of dawn). We have been enjoying lots of family film nights. From introducing Roo and Tigger to the Batman Dark Night trilogy to sharing family favourites with Granny. I even managed to watch Avengers: End Game after being jealous that Roo, Tigger and What The Dad Said got to go to the cinema earlier in the year.


Having enjoyed a weekend at Butlins we managed to listen to some classic tunes. Which I was pleased to see that some playlists had been created on Spotify. This has allowed us to continue the musical trip down memory lane in the car.


During our trip to Butlins, I knew that the children would like to spend a good proportion of the time in the swimming pool. Including Piglet who often misses out at home as What The Dad Said needs to support Tigger who is still gaining his water confidence. With this in mind, I bought and wore a swim dress. This might not be a big deal to most, but to me, it was a huge step outside my comfort zone.


August has been about making memories as a family. Both with the children and our wider family. Visits from Granny and my brother, as well as time with Magic Nanny and Bad Dad. Ensuring that we are spending time together, taking snapshots and having fun.


It’s almost time for back to school. I’m 80% there with the school uniforms and supplies (with many, many phone calls to chase the all-important high school uniform). Although I’m not quite emotionally ready to have the children go back.
