When I talk about my upcoming wedding I always say the theme is 1940’s. It’s not fully 1940’s because they didn’t have a lot and some things they did have, I’m not a fan of. I suppose you could say my theme is vintage or rustic too. Anyway the things I think make it 1940’s are;
They are white with lace and a 1940’s style.
They will be a telegram style which fits in with that time
We’re having little brown bags with sweets that we’re available in the 1940’s inside
The two adult bridesmaids, their dresses were purchased from Joanie Clothing which sells vintage style clothing.
We’re not having anything fancy, just a carvery followed by scones, jam and cream. And then a finger buffet in the evening.
Lots and lots of bunting, some paper chains and the tables with have cola bottles (in memory of my dad) with gypsophila in.
I’m getting so excited now! So you see, not 100% 1940’s but close to. Just under 10 months to go 😀
No I’m not pregnant. Why do most people always assume that? Anyway most people that follow me on social media will already know this but IM GETTING MARRIED! Tom and I have been together 14 years now so it’s long overdue but a few obstacles have been in the way but finally it’s happening!
Our wedding will be on Monday 6th April 2020. We have everything booked (just need to pay for it all) I have my dress, Tom has his suit and we’re slowly getting everything we need.
We’re lucky that we have so many family and friends helping us which has cut the cost down lots. Even with lots of help it’s still quite an expense obviously but a lot better.
So get ready for posts about weddings because I am super excited!
I’m not a huge fan of summer because of the heat but I do love that we can be a little more spontaneous and we do spend more time together. I have a list of things that I’d love to do this summer and I thought I’d share it here in case it inspires anyone else and also to remind me.

- Have a picnic in a park
- Have a water fight

Is there anything you would add?
Have you ever seen two boys happier? Receiving all this in the post, I’d be excited too! The boys love using their imagination and these SuperZings are perfect for that as they’re everyday items like a donut, drums, flower, ball, dummy, etc that are transformed into superheroes and Supervillains (they were particularly excited when they got a villain) also they’re collectibles which the boys, particularly Harry, love!
1 x Blister Mission – variety £15.00
1 x Kaboom Blasters £6.00
1 x Superbot £4.00
1 x Mega Pack (includes 4 x one pack and 1 x SuperSlider) £5.00
They’re great value for money. Jack opened the kaboom blaster and blister mission and he loved them. They were way better than I expected. The blister mission comes with two vehicles that shoot things out of them and what child doesn’t love that?
And the kaboom blaster has sounds so again another bonus!
And Harry opened the other two packs. He particular loved the mega pack which is awesome value for money. It was only £5 and he got so much from it!
He particularly loved that it came with a massive poster so we could identify them all
They both played with them all for hours and came back to them again daily
I definitely recommend these. They’re perfect if your child likes to spend their pocket money on collecting items.
*We were sent these for the purposes of review but all words and opinions are honest and my own.
On Tuesday 14th May myself and Jack headed to Mini Meadows Farm with his preschool. He has been asking daily for weeks so I was so happy I could finally say “yes, it’s today!”. First we headed to his preschool to get on the coach (Jack’s favourite bit by a mile)
When we got there we were offered the option to buy food for the animals. We chose to and I’m so glad we did. It was £2 and you receive a bucket with colour coded cups inside with different food. On the bucket there is a list of what coloured cup is for which animals.
Then you make your way around. My favourites were the tiny bunnies and baby goats.
Some animals like the rabbits and guinea pigs where you an enter their pens and touch them
Jack was very nervous with all of the animals but got braver as the day went on
Until a goat pinched the cup from his hands haha
He wasn’t so keen after that. They also have a really lovely play area outside.
And a lovely big indoor soft play area.
They also have a lovely cafe for food and drink. We took our own but we did buy some homemade Victoria sponge which was delicious (so good I didn’t take a photo because I was busy scoffing it)
I’m amazed that entry is only £5 each, it’s a bargain for what you get.
I highly recommend if you’re near.
*I paid for this trip as it was a preschool trip but I just wanted to share because it was so good.
