Our house.

As I opened the door to my Mum this morning saying ‘come in, its chaos here at the moment,its always bloody chaos in this house’.

I looked around at the garden (which is a constant work in progress!) at the paddling pool I had struggled to put up and get sorted, bits and bobs around the kitchen that I was in the middle of tidying away and thought~do you know what, this house may not be spotless, its noisy its loud but it’s our home, and its a home that is full of love and warmth.

A home with its doors always open to everyone and I love that.

I don’t know what the kids memories will be of their childhood when they are older but I hope they look back and remember that admist the chaos and crazyiness, the memories we have made and continue to make along the way are priceless.

For several years I carried the ‘single parenting’ guilt on my shoulders but I’ve long sinced parked that~this parenting gig isn’t plain sailing no matter what your situation is and I truly believe if we were all honest, we would all admit to just winging it at times.

So here’s to the chaos and the crazy days,sleepless nights and memories made.
Paddling pools and starting school.
Day trips here and outings there.
Running around without a care.
Through out these times I can depend on being driven well and truly round the bend!
But let me just say, so you know ,I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks to my 2 partners in crime.

All my love, All my life.❤x

Treasure Hunt

On Tuesday we set off for a train ride to sunny Brighton.

To embark on a ‘Treasure Hunt’ .

Which was fabulously organised and right at our fingertips.

I loved the whatsapp style of receiving clues which allows you to ask for hints and help should you need it.

Aswell as the fascinating facts that were very interesting and nice to uncover about a much loved place to visit .

Within our team~2 adults and 2 teenagers, we decided I would read the clues and facts and the others would map read and be on extra lookout!

This worked well and between us we soon got into the swing of it.

It took us roughly 2.5 hours to complete which may of included a quick stop or 2 for coffee~of course!

The treasure hunt, took us around Brighton town, down the lanes and also along the seafront, which was a really lovely walk, so much to see and take in on our way round, which kept everyone entertained and occupied.

The treasure hunt was a great way to see Brighton in a different and was a hit with both the adults and teenagers alike and if that’s not a win then I don’t know what is hee hee.

A big thank-you to https://treasurehuntbrighton.com/?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=crazylittlethingcalledlove.co.uk
