Over the last few years I’ve come to realise that our family absolutely love the great outdoors – but only when the weather’s nice. We tend to go into hibernation mode as soon as the weather changes in September, not really emerging again until winter thaws in about March. Does this sound familiar to you?
I know, the children have only just broken up for the summer – how can I possibly be talking about September yet? But, it will be here before we know it! And as such, I’ve already bought all the school uniform, with only shoes left to think about shortly before the new term starts.
LP and Little Man haven’t had consistent swimming lessons for a while – due to the pandemic and our local leisure centre closing for refurbishment. But, next week they start lessons again and they couldn’t be more excited, especially with brand new onesies to wear afterwards thanks to Cookie Dough Kids.
Is there anything better than loungewear? I’ll be honest, I loved loungewear long before the pandemic and the fact that it now takes up a big chunk of most wardrobes makes me so happy. Both versatile and comfortable, loungewear is something I could happily live in – and now LP thinks so too!
Having a new baby was definitely one of the most exhausting times of my life. With so much to think about and the constant needs of a new little person to think about. At a time like that it’s great to have even one less thing to think about.
As a family we love nothing more than matching outfits with LP and I having many of the same tops and the whole family having at least one set of matching pyjamas each year. Now, thanks to Sock Shop, our whole family can have matching socks too!
The children love getting new clothes and as a parent I really like them having clothes that are a little bit different to the High Street or popular online stores. LP and Little Man were sent some new clothing from a wholesale children’s clothing website – Kimi Dog and they couldn’t wait to try them on.
I always find it hard to know what to buy for Father’s Day and often I resort to the same things – a new book or movie, toiletries and socks. But, there’s no surprise there and it’s always nice to get something a little bit different but that you know the men in your life
As a family we spend as much time as possible outside, whatever the weather, throughout the year. Because of this we need to be protected from the elements all year round and have coats that suit the season too. Thankfully, winter has now pretty much passed and to get us ready for our spring adventures
