We Love Weekends – 27th March 2015

Last weekend had its ups and downs, but generally, it was a nice, restful weekend.

On Saturday afternoon we took a trip to the local park, where Jack found a tree to climb and Rachel had fun swinging around.
Then, Jack had his first school-friend birthday party on Sunday afternoon and I haven’t laughed as much as I did at his attempts at the conga!
Of course being the party of a four-year old girl, there was Frozen and a Queen Elsa lookalike involved!


Last Weeks Featured Postsfeatured posts 27th march

There were so many fantastic spring and easter themed posts on last weeks We Love Weekends. So it was hugely difficult to narrow them down!

Firstly, being the proud owner parent of a 4 yr old boy, we loved the Easter Eggs for boys post from Brain Power Boy!

Sunnydayfamily shared these fab DIY spring stamps using pipe cleaners and wooden pegs!

And one of my utterly favourite posts last week was Peakle Pie’s Welly Boot Planters.

And finally, (not particularly “spring”themed but definitely relevant), I couldn’t not feature the fab post by Mum n the Madhouse – Paddington Bear Crafts. We love, love, love Paddington Bear and there are so many fab ideas here!

Beer Bottle Cap Coasters

Working in a pub, I have access to no end of beer bottle caps, so this week, we decided to recycle some and make some little drinks coasters.


Air-drying clay


Bottle Tops


How we did it:

First of a, get a lump of clay and knead it until it is soft enough to roll.

Roll out the clay to a thickness of around half a centimetre, then using a cookie cutter cut out your required shape.

We made round coasters.

We Love Weekends 20th March 2015

Welcome to this weeks We Love Weekends linky!

Last weekend was Mother’s day here in the UK.
A well needed lie-in (due to no. 2 child keeping me up half the night with achey legs) was followed by breakfast in bed and loads of cards and pressies.
After allowing hubs a little rest, and watching Born Free with the kids – childhood memories galore! – we headed to the in-laws for a delicious roast lunch.image
The children had lots of fun playing with their beloved cousin Z. Continue reading We Love Weekends 20th March 2015
