Going on a dinosaur hunt

We went to a local farm park today, and their theme for this school holiday was Jurassic Farm. So when we went on a tractor ride,  we had to look for dinosaurs!

Grandad turns 90

What a special birthday! None of us can believe he has gotten to this age as he has lots of health problems. It was a great afternoon and grandad did really well.

But there are so many other organisers out there its hard to choose!! the Daytimer in green?? a Gillio?? a Van der Spek??

Bourton on the Water

I love spur of the moment trips.

Last Saturday was actually the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, but seeing as it was £45 per adult we decided to give it a miss. Instead we headed off into the Cotswolds to Bourton on the Water and visited Birdland. The enclosures were a little tired looking but Eleanor loved it, especially the Kookaburras laughing and the 'Ingos -flamingos.
We had a lovely picnic next to the river, and E decided she wanted to paddle. So I took off my sandals, climbed into the FREEZING river and waited. Where she dipped her toes and declared it too cold. Meanwhile my feet had gone numb!!

Sometimes spur of the moment is the best.

Little buddies.

Based on the latest chic tags sketch. Eleanor has known Alfred since they were 6 weeks old and they're a bit like an old married couple!

Planner dilemma!

I love my Paperchase planner (the one on the left). It is literally the best thing I've ever bought. My life now has order to it. The other two, both filofaxes - aqua Chameleon and a Ranger, also pocket size - were buys because I wanted to and have never been used.
But here's my dilemma. As much as I adore the size of my beautiful pocket planners, I just don't know if they're big enough any more. My Paperchase beauty is bursting and it's only july. But if I do buy a bigger one, I can't bring myself to use it until January. And then there's the choice!! Do I get a Filofax?  Or go cheaper and opt for Paperchase again?
