Fantastic Mr Fox, Person of Interest and Parents Evening. #LittleLoves

It’s been a funny few months here. Those of you who follow me on social media will know that following our separation, the husband came home in August, in time for our tenth wedding anniversary. It took us a little while to get used that again. We’ve had numerous issues with the husband’s car, my health has been up and down (and includes a new, not unexpected diagnosis of fibromyalgia) and I’ve started a new part-time job. I have a… Continue Reading “Fantastic Mr Fox, Person of Interest and Parents Evening. #LittleLoves”

Review: Bristol Zoo Gardens Dinomania

Bristol Zoo Gardens Dinomania

A couple of weeks ago we had a lovely family day out at Bristol Zoo Gardens. We took along my cousin as well as he had been asking my aunt and uncle to take him. We had actually planned to go the previous week but it rained non-stop, plus we overslept. As it turned out, the weather was much the same on the day we did go! But not to worry, we enjoyed ourselves anyway and it was nice for… Continue Reading “Review: Bristol Zoo Gardens Dinomania”
