One of my favourite times of the year is late Spring when the weather is a little warmer but not too hot, the flowers are blooming, and it feels like the months of typical English weather are behind us, if only for a few weeks. We finally get to enjoy the great outdoors and who doesn’t love a perfect picnic? You find some stuff in the fridge, throw it in a basket, cool bag or your handbag and search the house for a blanket. Picnics are a great excuse to catch up with friends or family.
The South West of England is known as the English Rivera, mainly because of its mild weather and beautiful beaches. This is why we should all be having weekend breaks in Cornwall.
Happy New Year! Wow, the end of yet another decade and the start of what hopefully will be a good year. I ended 2009 a working mum of one and by early 2010, I was pregnant with our little monster. What a decade it has been. This post is What Happened in December with a mini look over the last 10 years.
How can it be December? I mean last time I checked it was April and I was counting down the days until our summer holiday, now the Christmas countdown has begun! It’s not exactly Blogmas, but I thought I’d have a little change of pace today. This is what happened in November.
Welcome to Blogmas 4: Is the traditional nativity play a thing of the past? As we near the end of another decade, it got me thinking about the traditions that seem to be fading. Nativity plays, carol singing, Christmas cards they all seem to be a thing of the past, with schools looking for alternatives, people donating to charities (I’m all for it) rather than giving Christmas cards but are we losing touch with our history?
