A ROOM FOR A BOY


Noah will soon be six and I've realised over the past few months that he has definitely outgrown his room, not in terms of size but style. It's not really changed much since we redecorated when Patrick was born and given over three and a half years have passed, it's time for a change. I've spent quite a while looking online and even got a couple of ideas from some show home rooms I saw recently with my Mum, so I think I know exactly the style I'm going for. It's going to be pretty versatile and easily adaptable, just like his room now. I will never be going all in with wallpapers or crazy feature walls as I think they can be such a pain to replace to redecorate when tastes change.


A YEAR LEFT


I keep thinking about it more and more, perhaps because he's my last baby and he really has felt so small for so long, maybe it's because he's only really just hit three and it still feels too soon, I'm not sure, but it's only one year till Patrick heads to school. I know that because Noah was a December baby, we got that whole extra year with him, whereas Pip really is going to be one of the youngest in his class. Though I know while he'll be tiny in stature and smaller in age, he absolutely will not be a shrinking violet, because he's bursting at the brim with personality and I can't wait for everyone else to get a slice of him, even though it means we will be waving him off every morning.


SUNDOWN ADVENTURELAND


If you haven't heard of Sundown Advventureland before then you're missing out, it's out favourite place to go with the boys so it helps that it's literally fifteen-twenty minutes away in the Lincolnshire countryside and we're so excited to hear they're expanding and looking to build lodges on their site. In our five years of visiting there have been lots of changes at Sundown, all for the better, with two new rides being added in that time and a giant new play area named Fort Apache. It's a brilliant day out for the whole family and there is something for everyone to do, no matter the weather. With no hidden additional costs once you're inside the park, it can be a purse friendly day out, especially if you bring along a picnic which we love to do when the weather is as warm as it has been lately. If you haven't checked out our previous review, definitely do so here.
