Why we love the outdoors….

I think these photo’s sum up the outdoors to us as a family, even though I don’t think Hubby agree’s. I am very much if they are getting covered in mud yay! Hubby is “out of the mud you will get dirty!”

I think children should be able to explore all their environments, but only if they are safe to do.

Building mud pies I personally think is the main part of being a child, splashing in mud and getting their hands dirty!

Bear wasn’t into Mud and Dirt when he was tiny but now he is at school he isn’t afraid to get down and dirty with the mud!

Bell however isn’t keen but will certainly grab her wellies for a bit of splashing in the rain and a muddle puddles I blame Pepper Pig for this!

One thing I wouldn’t change as a family we don’t really plan for day’s out everything we do is usually spontaneous and last minute.

This summer we are going away, we are going to have a mini Glastonbury in the garden ,without the rain I hope, a few day trips and a few trips to National Trust sites.  What are your Plans this summer?

Me, Myself and I… Oh wait who am I kidding…

I am a mum of two Bell who will be three soon and Bear who turned 5 in the last couple of months. I also have two fur babies and a big child who will be 36 in a few weeks… the Big child is my husband if you didn’t guess!

We aren’t rich, we aren’t poor. We don’t live in a big house and I currently have drawings over my wall by the children. Unless you ask Bell who did it and she say’s Willow the cat. Yep my thoughts too how can a cat draw on the wall.

wellies and mud

 

If anybody ask’s what I do they will probably ask what don’t I do… I work part-time, I help with the local Rainbows unit (Girlguding), I love reading and I am there for my friends when they are feeling down and out.

I used to live near Lewisham, which is in London, but have always had family living in Kent. When my mum passed away of Cancer I moved to were I am now, and I love it. I have the countryside on my doorstep and live in a lovely little village. If anybody who knew me when I lived in Lewisham said where could you see yourself in 10-15 years time living I certainly would not of said Kent! I am certainly turning into the country girl and the London girl is certainly disappearing, but it won’t go 100%.

We love our Holiday’s ….well I certainly do! A week in the sunshine no work, no school and no cooking! We love being outside when the weather is nice and not so nice! We love just dancing in the rain and laying in muddy puddles! Hench the photo of the Muddy wellies in the wash!

We love baking and craft, We love spending time with family and friends. We love just chilling and watching a DVD or playing board games even though  I admit I do cheat a bit!

Hope you enjoy reading my Blog, I’m sure you will get used to my awful spellings and punctuation!
