Hello! Only one week left of the summer holidays here in Northern Ireland. It’s always bittersweet for me. I look forward to the return to routine and grieve the loss of spontaneity. However, I have a couple of ideas for a cheap day out, if you are in need of some inspiration until then. Over the past couple of days we visited a Sunflower and Wildflower Field in Portglenone, and the Waterfall Walk at Glenariff Forest.

So I felt it was about time I took my family on an excursion there.

Hello hello hello!!! And Happy New Year! I do apologise for my absence on the blog over the last while. I ┬ádo have an excuse though – I returned to work. So no more lazing around watching day time t.v. No more spontaneous outings. My life is now run with military precision. Well… that might be an exaggeration, but it will be, just as soon as I get organised. If that is even possible as a working mum? I’m going to give it a try anyway!
