Planner kits

If you love your planners, no doubt you will, at some point, have looked online for decorative stickers and charms to personalise it.
There are so many planner kits out there to suit all tastes and budgets. I've found three UK based kits for you, one of which I've tried, the others I have looked at.
1. UglyBugDoes. This has a bit of an 'alternative' feel to it. Previous have included Day of the Dead and Superheroes. (Photo credit threelittlebuhos on IG)
2. Little rainbow moon this kit is very arty. If you like your art journals then this is for you.
3. Mrs Brimbles this is a more mainstream kit and includes, stickers, post its, pens, charms as well as other fun items.

Have a look for a planner kit, I'm sure there's one out there for you!

Edited to add, link for little rainbow moon is incorrect.

Canal trip

E has been asking for ages to go on 'the boat at the shop with the peppa pig Jelly' (canal next to waitrose). As the weekend just gone was the airshow at Fairford, and we couldn't afford that, we decided to splash a few pennies and take her on the boat.
It's a renovated canal run entirely as a charity and staffed by volunteers. Wiltshire and Berkshire canal trust
It was a lovely, peaceful trip. Taking just under an hour. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

Experimental baking

I love a bit of experimental baking. And it's even better when the results smell and taste good!

I'd been looking for a baked oats recipe suitable for baby hands and which didn't contain a lot of sugar, when I stumbled across this recipe for baby led weaning oat bars.

I made a few tweaks but used the basic recipe. And they taste yum.

Foiled, again .

Twice so far we've been to pick your own for the obligatory strawberries (once being Open Farm Sunday) and twice we've been too late. The late British summer has meant the strawberries are ripening late. I hope Wimbledon copes!
Despite the lack of the red stuff we've managed to have a lovely time both times.

Can someone find my 'me'? I'm struggling right now to find the get up and go to do anything. I want to be creative but can't create. There's an itch and I just can't scratch it.

Cornish getaway

Last week we returned to our favourite caravan park in North Cornwall, where we spent the week enjoying the beach, ice cream, fudge, walks and a calmer pace of living.
