Much of April was dedicated to helping my Mum and Dad move house. They then came to stay with us for a bit so we took the opportunity to spend some quality time with them.
April also saw the exciting arrival of the newest member of our extended clan, our first niece, baby Isabel.
At the end of April I started a new job and at the beginning of July Chris started a new job. Which explains why it has taken me four months to write this post!!
Hectic has been rather neglected, but not entirely and we have a few new and exciting things that we will hopefully be able to share with you soon, so please bear with us.]]>
I did this challenge back in December and prepared this post, and then forgot to publish it!! I am now looking for a new challenge, can you recommend one?]]>

I am not currently a member of the association but I was for years thanks to my Mum’s dedication to the organisation. My Mum joined the Guides when she was 10 years old and was actively involved until she had a stroke 4 years ago.
Mum was a Guide as a girl in Canada and was a leader there. She tells me that when I was 18 months old we snowshoed into a Guide camp. When we moved to England Mum soon found the local Guide company, and she was the leader for more years than I think she would appreciate me mentioning! She also served in many other roles but I think it is safe to say her favourite was the County Boating Adviser, where she got to share her love of the water with so many Guides and Brownies.
I naturally joined the Brownies, Guides and then Rangers, I also spent some time helping out as an assistant leader. I have so many fun memories of adventures. Camps in Somerset. The world guiding centre in Switzerland. Hurricane Charlie. Kangaroo court. Smores. Being woken before dawn to hike to see the sunrise. King Arthur’s court. Christmas in July.
Are you or have you been a member of the Guide association? What are your favourite memories?]]>
We have been going in a slightly different direction this year, while Chris is still doing some pyrography we are branching out and designing these fun new cards.
What do you think?]]>
2016 saw the arrival of our beautiful boy …
2017 added our beautiful girl …
We are excited to see what 2018 will bring!]]>
We have spent since Saturday snowed in, only able to leave our property on foot. I love the snow and so was very happy to have an excuse to spend the weekend having fun, family time rather than working! It also inspired this new version of the saying …
Today it is raining, and our snow is dissipating. While I am sad to see the snow go, this does mean that we can get out to collect the gingerbread men and hot chocolate for our Christmas Eve gift bags and can go to the Abergavenny Christmas Street Food & Craft Night Market tomorrow night!
If you would like to see a few pics of our snow days then pop over to Instagram, if you would like to know more about our gift bags or events then come visit our facebook page.]]>
The consultant said to us that the improvement was aided by our handling of her. I put it down to the real nappies!
She will be going back in February for an x-ray just to be sure everything is progressing nicely, but for now it is all good!]]>
What really surprised us was the reaction to her real nappy. They had never seen them being used and asked us where we got such things! You would have thought we were doing something really bizarre and unusual!
In fact the extra width and support cloth nappies provide helps to keep hips in a better position and is beneficial for hip development, so it shocked me that they would not be more aware of them.
I feel better knowing that the decisions we have made regarding nappies have even more benefits than we had realised! Hopefully Bonnie will be free of her constraints soon.]]>
