June month in a minute

June was always going to be a bit of a comedown after such a fantastic May, but it also ended up being really busy and rather stressful. We have been full every weekend in the B&B, apart from one night when all our guests cancelled due to a bad weather forecast and then it turned out to be one of the most beautiful dry and sunny weekends!

Then my son got ill. He is never ill and it threw us all. He had a chest infection and had to go to hospital a couple of times. He had antibiotics for the first time and we discovered that he is allergic to penicillin, and also the other antibiotics he was given. Let's hope he doesn't get ill again in the future as his list of antibiotics is getting shorter!

A few days after he had finally recovered, I went out with my best friend to see Take That in Manchester and it was amazing. We don't get out very often together so we made the most of it and stayed out dancing until after 3.30am! Sadly two days later I was bed bound and couldn't move. I have genuinely never been so poorly and the doctor said I had swine flu.

Due to me being knocked out by flu, this month's video is a bit shorter than usual. Aside from the fact that I couldn't actually move, there wouldn't have been anything interesting to film. So I'm sorry that you have a little less this month. Here's to a well July!

Hot Wheels Super Speed Blastway Review

We were recently sent the Hot Wheels Super Speed Blastway to review. My son and daughter both love Hot Wheels, so were excited to try it out. They are also both incredibly competitive (I don't know where they get it from), so were looking forward to competing against each other!

Father's Day gifts from Truprint #TruprintDads

I never know what to get my husband for Father's Day, or for that matter, what to get my dad. The children usually make something at school, although disappointingly, there never seems to be quite as much effort made by the school as they do for Mother's Day. If you're reading Dad or Tim, click away now, I don't want to spoil anything for you.

My best friend sent me some craft things to do with the children, which included keyring men and magnets. We all got stuck into making things for Father's Day. My daughter drew my husband having a wee and my son drew a picture of a cat! I'm not entirely sure it was a successful craft session, but they didn't fight, so that's a win in my book.

Fat Face New Summer 2015 Collection

A couple of weeks ago FatFace launched a new Summer 2015 collection, "Take me to the weekend". The idea behind this being that it aims to make every weekend an adventure, either at home, a festival, a picnic with friends or a trip away. I was sent two items from the new collection, the Jade Indigo Diamond Maxi Skirt and the Linen V Neck Pineapple Punch Tee

May Month in a Minute

I was looking forward to May. I think it has passed so quickly to spite me! We have had our family holiday and it was wonderful. Our first ever holiday away to a hotel as a family. Our children were really excited that they were guests for the week. I think the get a bit fed up sometimes with the B&B guests taking up a lot of my time. It was nice to indulge for a week, to relax whilst the children were in kids club and to read books. I don't recall the last time my husband and I chilled out like that. The only downside was sleeping on a sofabed for a week. Next time we will get a bigger room so that we get to sleep in an actual bed!

We landed back to earth with a bump and eight guests staying. Now we are full every weekend until September, so we are going to see how the summer season goes! After half term, I know I am going to have to be more organised with things for the children to do. It's a long time to spend together and I want to all still be friends by the end.

Here is my video for May, I had no idea I filmed so many flowers! It's probably indicative of the amount of time I am having to spend in the garden getting the vegetables growing.
