I find it quite cathartic, looking back and reflecting on a whole year. I tend to forget lots of things that happen which can sometimes skew my view, and I think looking back really helps to put things in perspective. So here is my 2017!
I was asked to take part in a blogger challenge to find Christmas outfits for the kids from the shops in the St Enoch Centre. So baby boy and I took a wee shopping trip…
I’d like to give a MASSIVE shout out to the truly lovely staff at Briarlands Farm in Stirlingshire. I haven’t ever written about the place before as this was our first visit. I will do when I get the chance.
We had a lovely evening at the Woodland Light Experience. It’s a really nice way to spend a chilly autumn evening with family, and the kids had a great time exploring the woodland (and on the bouncy castle).
Summerlee is big enough to spend a few hours playing and exploring, and has lots of things to do. Best of all the museum is completely free! The tram ride is a very exciting added extra.
I popped into Merry Go Round at the weekend to check out the preparations for the big Briggait sale. Here’s some of my favourite finds headed down there this weekend.
The Woodland Fairy Experience is one of my favourite things to do with the kids. It’s rustic and magical and full of good old loveliness and not overpriced. I love it.
A friend went to visit the man in red at Santa’s Woodland Experience in Balfron last year. These are her thoughts. Spoiler alert: she loved it, and so did her entire family!
I was so looking forward to Jurassic Kingdom when I bought the tickets. From the advertising, it looked excellent. Dinosaurs that move and make noise and that could seem real to my little humans –[…]
We’ve only ever been to Bread Meats Breads as a couple before; on those nights we’re out without children, living it up in the city… But I was having a look at the new Bread[…]
The inflatables at Badminton For You make a great change from soft play. All the climbing and bouncing around exhausts the little lady (and me when I join in). We really enjoy it.
I’ve been taking baby boy along to Hartbeeps for a while now. Every week is a full on sensory experience for him; songs, bubbles, feathers, dress up… He loves it!
We’d highly recommend The Climbing Academy for kids. It’s great fun. We’ll be back very soon, especially if this wet summer weather keeps up!
The exhibition is underwhelming. Downstairs was fun but we could have stayed home and played with Lego at no cost. For what it is £16 family entry is steep.
The little lady loves a good playpark. I’m a fan too – outdoors, free, energy burning – perfect activity! So I thought I’d share our favourite playparks in Glasgow (or pretty nearby).
Sledging at Snow Factor was an excellent activity. Sliding down slopes and fluffy real snow… What’s not to like!?
Fitdankbaby is my favourite exercise-with-baby class I’ve done; I love how much the babies are incorporated into your workout. Baby boy loved it too!
Running, bouncing, climbing, swinging, rolling, jumping… PlayGym is probably our most looked forward to activity of the week. We love it!
We got a beautiful outdoor family photo shoot done by Jo from Mei Photography last year before baby boy came along. Here is a little look at the pics.
We made the most of the dry weather yesterday & headed to Free Wheel North at Glasgow Green for a shot of the balance bikes…
