We put a ban on making slime in our house when we got fed up of having to keep clearing away all the detritus left by Ella and KayCee.
I also got quite annoyed when I found a lump of it that had dried solid and stuck to the carpet in their bedroom.
Ella got around the ban by going to her friends and making it there! She brought home 4 tubs of it and gave some to KayCee.
With the recent hot weather, we’ve had the fans going constantly. This is KayCee using the fan to make a big bubble!

My lovely mother-in-law gave me some birthday money and instead of spending it on the house, like I usually do, I treated myself to some strawberries and cream Baileys.
Oh my word, it is delicious!
Strawberries And Cream Baileys
I’ll be on the lookout for some dessert recipes using this Baileys now! I tried looking at some on the Baileys website but for some reason, they’re not working.
I did see one for a Baileys strawberries and cream ice cream that I’m going to try. I also want to try making a trifle of some sort. I’ll share the recipe if it turns out nice!
You may have read that we recently found my older sister who my mum had put up for adoption before she had me and my siblings. We met Jayne a while ago but we hadn’t yet met any of her children or her mum. A family get together was needed!
Family Get Together
Last night my mum did just that and had a party to get our family and Jayne’s family together so we could finally meet 🙂
It was a lovely evening with everyone getting on really well and having a great time together.
Through having this party, we found out that one of my cousins had been friends with Jayne’s son a few years ago and my cousin would often go to their house at lunchtime and even started calling Jayne, mum!
They say it’s a small world and it truly is :o)
I’m a bit obsessed with Christmas, as many of you will know, but even I had to look twice at this letter the super wonderful husband received this week.
Christmas in July is on the Hallmark channel and they’re showing lots of Christmas movies this month so maybe this is why the Post Office thought it would be a good idea to remind us, in July, to Remember To Post Early This Christmas!
Post Office Christmas In July!
I do tend to think about Christmas all year as I like to spread the cost. I did have to wonder, though, if this was a mistake by the Post Office or if they’re trying to get us to spread the Christmas post through the year so they’re not as busy in December!
If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that Ella loves taking selfies and even though she has her own phone, she prefers to use mine! I found Ella selfies again when I checked my phone today 🙂
I have to admit that she knows how to do much more on my phone than I do. There are selfies with different frames such as pretty roses and ice creams. I have no idea how she did them!
Ella Selfies Again!
I love this one I found today. I just wish she wouldn’t keep doing the pout! I know it’s what all the girls her age are doing but I’m hoping she’ll grow out of it soon!
It’s been a lovely warm and sunny day today. Ant and I have been away all week and only came home yesterday. Before we went there wasn’t any blossom on the tree.
Today I had to take a photo of all the apple blossom because it looked so pretty and smelt wonderful 🙂
I was delighted to see the mock orange bush we bought while on holiday for our 10th anniversary was in full bloom and also smelt amazing. Ant showed me a photo of the pond when we’d just planted the mock orange and I couldn’t believe how small it was!
We went for a rainy walk yesterday at Hill Holt Wood in Norton Disney. Kaycee and Ella took the camera’s and I just concentrated on not falling over in the slippery mud!
I really must get some better shoes for walking in; pink ballet pumps are not the best choice! I think we’re all going to need some hiking equipment like walking boots and backpacks seeing as walking is going to be our new family hobby 🙂
Ella’s really taking an interest in macro photography at the moment. She prefers to use the Nikon to the Fujifilm. The Fujifilm has manual controls and to be honest, none of us really know how to use them. The auto macro setting on the Nikon is so much easier!
