What are the best family games to give as a gift this Christmas? It seems that there are new releases all the time, so I have searched high and done all of the research for you. I have shared a list of amazing family games that will make great gifts this Christmas.
September has arrived once again and back to school is once again on the calendar for the children. Had we not been parental rebels and taken the children away for the first week of the month, they would have returned to school much earlier than I think I’ve ever known.
There have been two key elements to the month of August, firstly, the weather – boy has it been hot! As a northerner at heart, my body is not made to withstand the temperatures that we’ve had this month. Whilst I’m not one for the rain either, the extreme heat is unbearable.
The devil works work for idle hands to do, or so the saying goes. Life is certainly not idle at the moment so I have no fear of the devil making work for me. Although I have to confess that I do in many ways like the rushed pace of life, no time to be tired or bored. Instead, I’m tackling my blogs, getting stuck in with my day job and finding the balance between family life and getting chores completed.
This month’s #LittleLoves… The final days of January are finally here. January always feels like the longest month of the year. I’m never sure if it is due to the colder weather taking hold, the loss of the Christmas decorations of those extra days between paydays after the expense of the month before.
Family travels and adventures are a huge part of our lives. Something we wanted for the children, to make memories together and to in part heal our guilt for our work patterns. Although the past few years have taken a hit on our family adventures due to the pandemic and financially.
This month’s #LittleLoves… It’ time to wave a fond farewell to the festive season and the final month of 2021. December always seems to pass by in a blur of school Christmas activities, family fun and, of course, Christmas. Hopes for a more ‘normal’ Christmas after last years life in lockdown Christmas were scuppered somewhat but actually, in many ways, we had a much more laid back celebration.
But also in the hope that it inspires you to make a little list of monthly goals that you’d like to achieve for the month ahead. Helping you realise that you achieve more than you possibly give yourself credit for.
Each month I share my #littleloves, a chance to reflect on the things that I have read, watched, heard and made. As well as highlighting what I’ve worn and any other highlights in my life. It’s not about the big things, it’s about all those small little loves that make up everyday life.
October always feels like a turning point for our family adventures and life events. After the come down from the summer and reality if back to school hitting us the last week or two of October signals life ramping back up again for half term and Halloween festivities. Easing us into birthday month and then Christmas.
