Bank Holiday Weekend Discoveries
I had actually, genuinely forgotten it was a bank holiday today.
I had planned to scoot up the motorway to take some photographs of pretty flowers with a lovely lady at the Clevedon Craft Centre. A plan which I kept of course, I love a good bloom.
But it feels like we have been given bonus time. The boys are glued to the new trampoline and I am scribbling notes and to do lists ready for Sammy's Birthday Party this Saturday.
Here are my bank holiday weekend discoveries.
I love my boys in a bow tie, in fact I think they have around 8 different colours each! But these grown up wooden versions from Two Guys Bow Ties are amazing! I so wish I could get Rich in one of these!
I have been a fan of the Sister's Guild online shop for a while now (I have just got to get this beehive children's bag for my niece) and adore their for Mama collection. I love this grown up tiffin lunch box, I realised I make so many Bento lunches for the boys but I am missing out myself! Another pin to the wish list.
Whilst the party planning is seemingly under control at the moment, I can always use some help. I have a little army of helpers arriving at the weekend to assist with the last minute bits and spotted this sweet book online. Ok, so I may need the internet to help translate it as it's all in French but still! It would make a really nice gift to a party loving parent. If you have any failsafe party tips please leave a comment!
Finally I want to say a huge thank you for the best week in blogging there could possible be. Not only am I a Finalist in the MAD Blog Awards in September but this week, the Finalists in the National BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards were announced. I am over the moon to be a Finalist in the Photo category. Thank you for everyone who voted, especially if you got your other halves to vote as well! The winners are revealed in a ceremony on the 21st June in London.
Incredibly, I was also shortlisted as one of 6 blogs in the Loved by Parents Blogger of the Year Award. I keep pinching myself and checking the link as I can't quite believe I am amongst those names. I would love to be in the final 3 so if you fancy taking 30 seconds to vote click here!
Thank you! Have a great day.
