Thing's I Loved In April

I can not believe that April is almost over, although judging by the snow showers the last few days you could well be forgiving for thinking that it was still winter and not spring! As April is now drawing to an end I thought that I would once again write about the things that I had loved from the month gone by like I did last month, a way to help me get back into thinking positive again after suffering badly with pnd last year.

So here is a few of the things that I have loved in April.

A Afternoon In Scarborough

Two week's ago we were lucky enough to be invited to stay at the beautiful Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, which is located near Scarborough. Of course being so close to this delightful seaside town we just had to pay it a visit and we ended up spending a lovely afternoon exploring and feeling all nostalgic, as it brought back many happy childhood memories.

Scarborough is somewhere that I use to visit as a child, I remember my mum taking me and my brother and visiting the fair and riding on the donkeys. It is also somewhere that I have taken my eldest daughter when she was younger, she loved it and is eager to return. However on this occasion it was just myself and the other half, although after seeing what the town has to offer we are keen to visit again in the summer with all three children as there is so much for little ones to do.

Is Technology Making Children Miss Out On Childhood ?

As a child I think that I had a pretty good childhood, I grew up in a nice house in a nice area with my mum, dad and younger brother. We had yearly holidays to places like Florida, we had lots of family days out and I remember spending long summer days playing outdoors with my friends and riding pony's. I was completely carefree, even into my teenage years. 

As I had such a lovely childhood I have found since becaming a parent myself, that I want to give my own children a similar childhood to my own. I have definitely carried on old family traditions and parent in a similar way that my own parents did with me.

Hippity, Hoppity Little Bunny Book Review

Regular readers will know that we are part of the Parragon book buddies scheme, which means that my little two are sent a book to review each month. We were sent a book over Easter which was a rather cute finger puppet board book called Hippity, Hoppity Little Bunny. I am actually late writing this review as we were so busy over Easter and we went away for a few days, so I am busy trying to catch up on reviews. Even though Easter has passed I still think that this is a lovely book that can be enjoyed all year around, so read on to see what we thought.

A Disney Princess Toddler Tea Party

Tomorrow the 21st of April is National Tea day and it is also the queen's birthday too! So what better way to celebrate both occasions than with a Royal tea party ? Of course to have a royal tea party you need a tea set and some very special guests and luckily we were sent both, so that my very own Princess Sophia the first could celebrate.

Jakks Toys very kindly sent my little princess a Sofia the first tea set and four extra special guests in the shape of four beautiful Disney Princess Toddler Dolls! Perfect for my own toddler princess to play with and just right for a royal garden tea party.
