Alpha Mummy & Beta Mummy Camp It Up.


A couple of weekends ago, I took Feral Child #1 and Feral Child #2 camping. I kind of wonder if there’s actually much point in writing this post, because let’s face it, you can imagine how it’s going to go, can’t you?!

A Lovely Walk…AKA The Trudge of Doom


*Sigh*

We’re a pretty outdoorsy family – anything to minimise the house-trashing – but our outdoors activities tend to be somewhat…unstructured.

I was given this book a while back – ‘Kiddiwalks in Dorset’ – and wow! I thought, what adventures we shall have, my boys and I!  We shall explore the Dorset countryside starting at a convenient car park, follow a very carefully-planned route (not too difficult for little legs), with lunch at the halfway point (either a picturesque picnic spot or a family-friendly pub), finishing up back at the car just in time for naptime…BRILLIANT!  I shall bask in the sunshine and the glory of being such a great mum of two ruddy-cheeked, nature-appreciating, Frugi-wearing stars of Instagram!
