Our Favourite Five – June

Well, I thought June would be a relatively quiet month compared to May but I actually think it was busier. I can’t remember the last time we had a quiet weekend and am actually looking forward to having one so we can do nothing!

Mr H always tells me off for scheduling so much in and I have to admit that I am starting to feel it. Just this last week I’ve managed to get the date wrong for E’s school trip and M’s school nursery settling in session! I think I need to try and catch some early nights to recuperate!

Anyway – onto this month’s highlights.

The Tooth Fairy

This was a biggie for E and although the teeth had to be pulled out in the end and not what we were expecting he did still get a visit from the Tooth Fairy which he was very excited about.

Tip: If your child is of teeth-losing age (is that even a term?!) try and prepare yourself with a little Tooth Fairy letter kit or similar. Otherwise, you will end up making a mini envelope and letter and praying that your child doesn’t recognise your handwriting!

Windsor and LEGOLAND

E had an inset day at the beginning of June and so for the second year running, we decided to take the boys to LEGOLAND. We made a little break of it by spending the Sunday afternoon
in Windsor and a stayed in a local hotel (more on that in another blog post soon). We had originally planned to visit the castle but as the weather was so nice it seemed a waste to spend it inside. So we had a lovely boat ride along the river instead which the boys absolutely loved, it was so hot it felt like we were on holiday. LEGOLAND on the Monday was also a baking hot day but we managed to go on the usual rides we wanted to but skipped Duplo Valley as it just looked chaotic!

We had so much fun at the weekend in Windsor. Boys are still talking about the boat trip we took along the river!

Nursery trip to Hobbledown

I don’t often get the opportunity to help out with school and nursery trips because I am usually working but luckily M’s trip to Hobbledown was on my day off so I literally jumped at the opportunity to be able to go. It had rained bucket loads the day before and in true “mum style” I remembered wellies for M and not for myself.

However, the day remained dry and it was lovely to see M have fun jumping in muddy puddles with his nursery friends.


I couldn’t not mention attending BML last weekend. I bought my early bird ticket back in September last year and had been so looking forward to it. The best part by far was meeting up with my blogging friends but it was a tiring day and I think a lot of us are recovering in one way or another!

The Little Gym

This has become a real weekly highlight for the boys. They love having an hour each week to be able to exert some energy by running around and learning gymnastics.

We checked out the newly Little Gym Cobham yesterday and the boys had a great time! @thelittlegym

  1. Lovely round up – Hobbledown is so close to me, we go quite often! x

  2. Ah it has been a busy month! Great tip about the tooth fairy, I will look into that as Ava is 5 so guess it will start in the next year or so! I’d love to take the girls to Legoland, maybe one day! x #OurFaveFive

  3. Cheryl @ ReimerandRuby

    Yes you’re right, definitely a busy month for all of you. Thanks for tip about the tooth fairy, I think my son has started complaining about his wobbly teeth, so we might get a visit from tooth fairy soon. We had been to Legoland last year but didn’t manage to go on the boat ride, maybe next time hopefully. Looks like you had a great time at BML16, meeting other bloggers must be fab, I’m jealous! Lovely photos too! #OurFaveFive

  4. The Little Gym looks great, I think my two would love that as well! We went on the river boat when we visited Windsor a few years ago, it was lovely 🙂 Thanks for hosting! x
