Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul DVD Review & Giveaway

It is lovely now that Bob is old enough to watch things that we enjoy too. At the weekend, she loves staying up later than Bow and watching a film with us. It is lovely to have some family television time that doesn’t involve Peppa Pig. On Friday night we watched the new film in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. We haven’t seen the other films but I have heard that there is a new cast in this [click here to read on]

Our New Home

Last week was quite challenging. We moved house on Friday, in the midst of a sickness bug. Moving house is hard enough, this was a nightmare!

We have moved a few times since we relocated to North Yorkshire and we have finally found our home. [click here to read on]
