Puzzle wood with Captain Ollie the Pirate!

I'd been feeling a little stressed recently due to work, uni work and life in general so Pose in her usual 'she just gets me' manner organised a lush day out for us all. The days wombling adventure took us to Puzzle Wood in the Forest of Dean. Given the punishment our son had put... Continue Reading →

Surviving a Bank Holiday weekend with a toddler.

A quick post precursor, I love my son, he's great and Pose and I are lucky to have such an awesome bundle of brilliantness in our lives. However, some weekends it can feel like a war of attrition, interspersed with artfully timed biscuit bribes as an aid to promote any fleeting moments of peace. Merely... Continue Reading →

Cogge Manor Farm

Late finish on this post but Summer term in school is always a killer. Anyway....imagine you're transported back in time to May... It's been a pretty non-stop action month in the Webber household. We have had Ollievov's second birthday, Pose's <mumblemumble> birthday, SATs at my school, beginning of exam season at Poses school, Ollie has... Continue Reading →

I think both of us genuinely expected this to be a worrisome experience where Pose or I would be phoning to check on Ollie every 30 minutes... Continue Reading →

If you haven't been to a scarecrow trail it's a really fun little event where people throughout the community create scarecrows on various themes which are then dotted throughout the area. Having recently discovered the... Continue Reading →

Tigers Rugby adventure

Given that Ollie is shaped in a fairly similar way to an over pumped rugby ball it shouldn't be too much of a surprise he felt right at home and enjoyed himself at Leicester Tigers. He spent roughly 40% of the time burbling/flirting/socialising with people in the row behind us, 40% dropping food onto the... Continue Reading →

Olephants meets Japanese food

Ollie's discerning pallette had its first proper taste of Japanese/Sushi today. Unsuprisingly he loved it and equally predictably he managed to make eating rather dainty morsels of food look truly horrific. He pretty much dived face first into some seaweed coating himself and the immediate splatter area around him before we rescued the food. It... Continue Reading →
