Magic Moments: First Driving Lesson

So as the title suggests I had my first official driving lesson this morning. After my disappoint from failing my theory test and my failed attempt of going out in my friends car after stalling, juddering and other things it was safe to say I wasn’t looking forward to it. I am hugely competitive with myself, and when things don’t go well or I can’t do something I get frustrated, and let’s face getting frustrated when driving isn’t really a good idea. So nervous, apprehensive and a tad bit excited to see what was going to happen I went on my driving lesson.

Magic Moments: Dorothy & Theodore

My magic moment this week is all about me and the blog.

There was a post on twitter by Dorothy & Theodore asking for Mummy and Daddy bloggers to email them about an exciting opportunity. Of course I was really intrigued and was really excited to get an email back asking if I wanted to affiliate with them and after looking through their shop time and time again of course I said yes.

Dorothy & Theodore’s mantra is “because practical can be beautiful’  If you are after gorgeous products and gifts for you, your family, your friends and your home, which are still practical for family living, look no further than this gorgeous one stop shop which sells everything from moses baskets to earrings to cupcakes.  Click here to take a look. https://www.dorothyandtheodore.com

I have seen some absolutely gorgeous things from Dorothy & Theodore, and they really do have something for everyone!

Here are some of my favourites.

Tiny Tickers – Feb 11th

So we are half way through Tiny Tickers Heart Week. I was hoping to be posting daily about Tiny Tickers, who they are, what they do, how they help, how you can help them and how we are helping them this week, but unfortunately the past two days I haven’t been much into blogging 🙁 You can read about it here if you want to 🙂 But back into it today with how they help.

Me and Lily will be ending Heart Week with our sponsored walk and you can still donate now if you can spare anything I would be extremely grateful.

Theory Test

So the past few days I haven’t blogged, and it’s not because I don’t want to I have been super busy working on stuff for other people and revising for my Theory Test.

I downloaded a trial of two apps for my Linx Windows tablet and the highway code. All in preparation for revising and I have worked super hard as I really want to pass my test. Driving is a necessity now really, my family live 2 hours away and my dad only has a 5 seater car – like the normal sized car which means he can’t come and get us to take us back so for us to be able to see the family without it costing me a fortune in train fare every time we need to get a car. Also on weekends I am limited with where I can go with the three kids and buses an absolute nightmare (and pretty expensive too) so it will just open up a whole new world for me and the kids.

Morning walk with the Hubby (and Milo) to Gwrych Castle

You may have seen our many muddly puddle pictures from walking up to Gwrych Castle last week, or even our family walk up to the castle back in October 2014, but Monday we took Harry to playgroup and then headed off with Milo for a lovely walk. It has been a long time since it was just me and hubby doing something we enjoy! Recently we have spent it getting organised in the house and me doing uni work so it has been pretty scarce the quality time we have spent together so I was so excited (sad but true) to get to spend this time with him with no distractions!

The castle is one of our favourite places to go. I really want to keep going past the castle as we haven’t been too far up yet so hopefully next week we will be able to leave our house a little earlier and won’t have to go to Tesco so have head back earlier and we will be able to go on a nice 2 hour walk. We ended up walking for an hour Monday and I loved every second of it!

The castle itself and the view from there is just amazing, this is why I want to go further up as I want to see more beautiful views like this. The castle itself is currently getting restored (I would link to the website but it appears to be down at the minute) and when it is done we will be able to go inside and view it. I cannot wait for it all to be finished!
