It’s that time of the month again where I share all the lovely things we’ve been up to, things I’ve discovered and things we’ve been enjoying through the month. So here goes:
We have made steps forward with our loft conversion this month! We’ve paid a deposit to our preferred loft company and have had an architect round to draw up the plans. They’ve now come back and have been submitted to the council for approval. It’s all very exciting and we should have more to report soon!
Geomag are some of LP and Little Man’s favourite toys and this month I’ve heard that GeomagWorld are revamping some of their popular existing product ranges like the Magicube Collection with 100% recycled materials.
It’s great to see our favourite brands taking steps to not only recycle but to use less natural resources too. So many of the children’s favourite toys are plastic and so making them from 100% recycled materials is a great move in my eyes.
Over Christmas I decided we needed to overhaul our coat and shoe storage. The children couldn’t reach to put their coats up and the shoe storage wasn’t big enough and this month we finally sorted it out.
We bought a new shoe cabinet from IKEA and coat hooks that the children can reach and it works so much better now. Grown up coats have been relegated to under the stairs but the children have so much more independence!
We have loved Frugi’s clothing range since the children were babies and as the range goes up to age 10 at the moment there’s no sign of the children stopping wearing it! This month the children were sent a new outfit each from Frugi and they couldn’t be happier!
The clothes are bright, colourful and made with organic cotton meaning they are so soft and comfortable whilst being perfect for the children’s active lifestyles and equally time at home. You can see their full range here.
Just before half term I went to parents evening for both the children – and they’re doing so well. I honestly couldn’t be more proud of how hard they work and they effort they put in.
* Prepared for all weathers
The children were also sent new wet weather gear from Reima which they tested out for the first time over half term. Rain coats, waterproof trousers and even rain hats, gloves and wellies – Reima has it all!
Brick Week at Legoland
Another half term adventure took us to Legoland for their first ever February opening. The weather wasn’t the greatest but we had such a nice time, went on lots of rides and really enjoyed ourselves. I’d definitely go again in the future.
* London Transport Museum
Our half term kicked off with a trip to the London Transport Museum. We’d never been before and absolutely loved it. I don’t think we’ve ever spent that long at a museum before!
* A Meal at Home
During half term the children had a sleepover at their grandparents’ house and Dave and I invited our closest friends over for dinner – which was cooked for us by a chef from La Belle Assiette. It was such a nice evening and the food was incredible!
* Bletchley Park
We finished half term with a trip to Bletchley Park where we learnt all about the Codebreakers from WW2 and the work that they did as well as the life and death of Alan Turing. It was a really interesting and inspiring day out.
* New Games
The children were sent Topple Tower from the London Transport Museum Shop and I’ve never seen them concentrate so much on a game! It’s so brightly coloured, with colours to symbolise each of the underground lines and the children loved it. A great game for all the family.
So there you have our February. It’s been such a lovely month, full of rainy day adventures, bright colours and time together. We’ve had a really great month and I can’t wait to see what March brings. I hope you’ve had a lovely February too.
