Boo has loved ice skating ever since her very first time when we visited Lapland UK in November of last year. Now Boo and her daddy go each week to our local ice rink on a Saturday morning to skate for an hour. Boo has an amazing time and is always talking about skating and how much fun she has.

So my husband and I decided that it would be a great idea for us to use some of the money Boo was given for her birthday by relatives to buy a pair of her very own ice skates. I was so happy when I found these ones, they are adjustable by 4 sizes (so they should last more than five minutes) and there are flashing lights in the heels too. What more could we ask for?!

As you can see from the photos (I couldn’t bring myself to just share one this week as I loved them all) she is incredibly happy with her new skates and she couldn’t wait to get out on the ice!

She had a great time skating round on her new skates, she looks so tiny and so grown up all at the same time out there on the ice with her flashing new skates!

I can’t believe it’s been nearly two months since my last Pain Management Session. It feels like I have been so busy in the mean time that it’s just flown by. But then Christmas and the New Year are always manic.  Since my last session I have been to see the Physiotherapist (that was mid December) and last week I had my ‘Pain Management review’ which is a short meeting with the lead Occupational Therapist and the Physiotherapist to see how we are getting on and if we have managed to put any of the strategies in place from the course.

Organising a family holiday can be stressful, especially if you’ve got young children. Far-flung, exotic destinations might not be an option with the kids in tow, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a well-deserved relaxing and fun holiday. Here are some great child friendly holidays ideas.

I love taking photos, and Boo has always been interested, and she has had a couple of toy cameras and loved to pretend to take photos with them. So, for her 3rd Birthday my husband and I decided to get her a camera of her very own! After having a look about and reading a fair few reviews I chose the VTech KidiZoom Duo Camera. And I am so glad I did, Boo loves it and it’s amazing!

Boo was very happy when we woke up to snow on Friday morning. It was only a tiny layer on the garden but it was enough for us to have a snowball fight and build a very cute, and very tiny snowman.

Boo insisted that we place the snowman on the top of her sand/water table, I thought it was very lovely that she wanted him up there, with a lovely view over the rest of the garden. The fact that she then aimed all of her subsequent snowballs at the mini snowman probably indicates that she wanted him up there to make him a better target!

She had a great time out in the garden, proving that even the smallest dusting of snow can provide endless fun for a toddler. We stopped short of making snow angels, by the time Boo suggested them our garden looked more mud than snow so we decided to head inside for a hot chocolate.

So here is our mini snowman/target for snowballs. I love this photo it’s a wonderful memory of a very happy morning spent in the garden playing in the snow.
