Standon Calling Festival 2016 Happened!

Last weekend we went for the Standon Calling festival and it was very interesting! Had a shakey start but the finish was great fun all round!

Officially the festival was on from Friday the 29th till Sunday the 31st of July but we could only go on Saturday, what with work and other family comittements.

As I mentioned here, this was my first family festival so I was really curious to attend it and see what it was like and I wasn’t disappointment!

Aj’s First Birthday Party at 4

First of all, Happy New Year! This post should have come last year but better late than never! πŸ™‚

We finally did a birthday party for Aj the weekend before Christmas and itΒ went better than I expected!

I previously blogged about Nigerian vs BritishΒ kids partiesΒ and I was torn on how to go about the party. I knew I wanted it to be as stress-free as possible (for me!) but for it to be fun for the kids. Hubby and I were pretty much on the same page regarding thisΒ AND maintaining a non-expensive budget too!

So what did we do in the end?

28 weeks – Family Weekend & Hello Cousin Damz! #Pregnancy 2

Last weekend was awesome! But it ended way too quickly for my liking! We drove down to Scotland for Baby Damz‘s dedication (AJ’s new cousin!) – 5 hours on the road with a pregnant woman, a toddler and of course a man! Let’s just say the trip ended up taking a little longer than 5 hours but it was fun! In Scotland, we got all the cousins in one place – Aj, Jj, Ojj AND Damz! The only people missing were the people on the other side of the pond! I’m pretty sure the house felt the kids’ presence!
