May seem's to have passed by in a flash, I am not sure if it was because of the two bank holidays or because we have been super busy lately. I know I say this every single month but I can not believe how fast the year is whizzing by and that it is now June! May was a really nice month and we actually managed a full month with no illnesses. Sophia turned four, we went on a little holiday and we have had lots of day's out in the sunshine. We have so many lovely things planned for June too, so let's have a look at what May was like for us.
At the start of May, we went away for a few days to a Haven caravan park in Berwick and the children had the best time. It was nice to spend time together as a family without technology getting in the way, the sun shone all week and we had such a lovely time. We went swimming, to the beach, for family meals out and to the mini disco every evening which Sophia loved so very much. It was a really nice, relaxing break and I think it was what we all needed.
Sophia turned four at the end of the month and she had a party at the local Wacky Warehouse (keep an eye out for a blog post) which she loved and I highly recommend. On her actual birthday, she was at nursery school in the morning so we just took her into Newcastle in the afternoon to build a bear and for a meal at George's Great British Kitchen, which was delicious. We got her a new Micro Scooter for her birthday which she loves riding to school every morning.
Sophia has started attending a special speech school two full days a week for eight weeks, it is a small group in a primary school and it is intense speech therapy to try and help with her speech delay ready for going to primary school in September. She loves the speech school and while it is a bit of a logistical nightmare getting her there and back at times, it has helped get her ready for starting reception in a few short months.
Myself, my teen and the other half went to the rugby Magic Weekend at St Jame's park in the middle of the month and while I am not a rugby fan it was a nice day out. We were treated to VIP seats and bar access which made the whole experience much nicer, I really enjoyed doing something that I would not normally do. We have enjoyed a few nice family meals out, some lovely days out in the sunshine and lots of time at home in the garden and I have loved spending lots of time with all three of my children as it doesn't happen often.
May was a funny month blog wise, I have started getting back into the swing of things after months of feeling a bit uninspired with my blog. However, things have been a bit of a disaster as my blog broke at the end of May and I was so stressed as I did not have a clue how to fix it. My domain name had automatically renewed and I couldn't get on my blog at all, it just had a redirect in place saying it had moved. I was so lucky that a lovely lady called Fiona from www.wisheshopesdreams.co.uk came to my rescue and fixed it for me, if you ever need help with your blog then I highly recommend her.
My DA score dropped and my Tot score, as has my page views and I think that has been the kick up the bum that I needed to get fired up about my blog again. I don't want to throw all my hard work away so I am going to start taking my blog more serious again.
Despite the drop in stats I have actually been really busy blog wise in May and have been working on some of my biggest campaigns to date. This month's highlights have been working with Wacky Warehouse, attending the Dacia Magic Weekend, working with Smyths Toy Superstore, working with Boots and P&G on the #TeenTalk campaign for the second year in a row and also working with Disney on Ice again.
I am already looking forward to what June has in store, see what we got up to in April. What were your highlights from May?
