Photos of the week

A few days later than I originally planned but we have had a busy weekend. Here are some of the things we were up to last week.

Last Saturday Lee was at Pistons in the Park with our Mini club so Samuel and I went to meet him there. There were lots of cars on display as well as some quad bikes, which Samuel got to sit on. He absolutely loved it. His face in this picture just shows how interested he was.

Samuel loves ice-cream and here he is having a taste of my Jammy Dodger flavour gelato. It really was delicious and Samuel thought so too.

The sand fiend is at it again. He just can’t get enough of the stuff. Here he is at Whisby after we had had a play in their new soft play barn.

Samuel in a net swing with 2 of his best friends George and Evelyn. He loves other children especially older ones that he can follow around.

Having fish and chips with Samuels Great Nanna and Grandad. Samuel is eating fishcake here and he loved the mushy peas. We had such a lovely time with my Grandparents.

We are having such a lovely summer together I can’t believe it’s nearly over.

Personal Planner

When I started back at work I knew I needed a new diary. Like most people nowadays I use my iPhone calendar which is linked to my husbands but obviously work stuff is of no interest to him. I wanted a physical planner that I could write in and access at work (no phone rule) and there is just something lovely about a new diary.

My friend introduced me to personal-planner.com. A Swedish company which makes unique diaries.

I loved that I could put a picture of my gorgeous baby boy on the front and back cover so when I am at work I can still see his cute face. I loved that you could pick different layouts and banner designs and that you could add extras like the weather, a 'to do list' and 'ideas of the week'. It comes with a ruler/bookmark and a sheet of stickers and you get to choose extra pages such as square/plain/ruled pages, sudoku, colouring and address book.

You can pick the Month you want the planner to start. So you can have it start in October for example. No more waiting until January or September to start a new diary or getting one and wasting pages.

I opted for the week days to be split half plain and half ruled. I have used the rules section a bit like a journal, just writing a few lines about what we have been up to that day.

It was lots of fun to set up and you can even input people's birthdays if you wish and they will be printed on for you. I didn't this time but may do in the future.

If you are after a new diary then definitely check them out!
