May Roundup & a bucket list update.


May seemed to fly by in a flash. I actually can not believe we are in June already! This year is flying by. We're in the sixth month of the year already! How crazy is that?!
Here are the best bits of our May and our May bucket list update.

Mumx3x adventures

Ellie and I started our month off with a lovely adventure, exploring the countryside where we live! It was truly lovely. We found a couple of new footpaths which lead to lots of beautiful views. We saw some sheep and found some truly pretty places to have a lovely picnic (Hopefully we have some nice weather in June). We can not wait to show the boys the places we found. We can tick off 'Visit somewhere we've never been before' from our May bucket list.

I took so many photos of Spring, it's hard to decide which ones to share! this was another thing on our bucket list for May and I certainly achieved that!

I had a lovely catch up and some lunch along the river with my sister. I also got in my 10k steps! I've been aiming for 10k steps a day and for the most part, I have managed it. It helps when I have places with beautiful views to walk! I've also been working out more! Another goal to mark off my list for May.

Learn a new game was on my list for May. I personally didn't manage that. The kids did though. I bought a lovely bean bag game and garden snacks and ladders for the kids to play in the garden!

We were creative in May. We made some sand art teddy bear bottles which baker ross kindly sent us to review. We also made some animal skin patterns using the animal skin plates which we were also sent to review!

We went for a beautiful walk through our local woodland. charlie climbed trees! And we finished off with a visit to the park, which was my favourite park when I was a child. It was a fun morning/early afternoon. The 800 (give or take a few years) year old tree is SO fascinating and I enjoyed watching the kids climb it, I use to climb that same tree when I was little. I truly enjoy making memories with my children in the places I use to play when I was there age!

All the kids are doing great at school, they're all working hard and doing very well indeed. I am very proud of them! It's now half term and they're having a well deserved break. Harry is very much looking forward to the six weeks holiday, I think he's eager to start year 8! I can't believe it's less than two months until the summer holidays. Madness how fast this year is going. Charlie will be starting high school in September. I can not believe that! And also my youngest. Ellie. She'll be in year 4! That's shocking.

Health wise, I haven't felt too bad. I've had a headache on and off but I've still managed to workout here and there and even been for a jog/power walk a couple of times. I haven't weighed myself yet but I do feel fitter! I've also been eating healthy and tried a couple of new foods which are lower in carbs!

I also managed to read a few books, including The other child by Lucy Atkins (which was very, very good)

May was a pretty good month. Minus the headaches, crappy weather and anxiety. I'm sure June is going to be a fab month and I can't wait to get started on our June Bucket List.

  3. You're making me feel like a guilty parent as I don't do that much with the kids these days, though mine are older than yours (11 and 15) and the suggestion of a day out during the schools hols is me with grumpy looks and shrugs of 'do we have to?', lol! BTW, congras on the 10k steps/day! Tx

  6. Well done on getting your 10,000 steps in! Your flower photo is beautiful - is that a rose? Great that you are exploring the countryside. I often think we don't explore what's on our doorstep.
