Goodbye May, Hello June

Thank you May! After having a bit of a tough time in March and April it is such a relief to have a really lovely month to write about! We have done so much in May and it has absolutely flown by.

Goodbye May hello June

Here’s a little round up of the highlights of our packed month:

The London Transport Museum – this was such a good family day out, I’ve written a review which has lots of details.

We had a trip to our favourite beach on the Norfolk coast. It was a wonderful day of kite flying, paddling and building sand castles. We got home very tired and happy.

Jango Unchained – I really enjoyed this Quentin Tarantino film. I didn’t really expect to like it as I knew it was going to be really violent but it’s really compelling central characters won me over.

Sofia had a Victorian day at school, I must admit that my good intentions of making a costume went out of the window and I bought a ready made outfit from Amazon.

We finally had a date night! We went to a great Argentinian restaurant called Cau to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. The steaks and cocktails were fab!

Death on the Nile Exhibition – I’d promised Sofia I would take her to this exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and we just made it there on the last day. It was all about Egyptian rituals and beliefs around death (more fascinating than morbid!) There was lots of decorated sarcophagus and it was incredible to think how old they were.

De cluttering project – I’ve made a lot of progress applying the KonMari organisation system to my house. I have got rid of so much stuff (I think probably a small skip load in total which considering we live in a tiny house is a lot). My house is looking so much better for it. I’ll do a fully post on my de cluttering experience shortly.

Bullet journal – I’ve heard a couple of other bloggers mention using the bullet journal system so I thought I’d check it out. I was quite inspired by this YouTube video so have just started my own bullet journal. It’s early days at the moment but I think his could keep my life in better order.

Going solo – the biggest thing going on for our family in June is Rolando being away for a week. He is going to the US to see a friend which means I’ll have a week of looking after the 3 kids on my own. I have a bit of trepidation about how I will get on!

Father’s Day – Rolando is going to be away on Father’s Day so I’m thinking about how we are going to celebrate. Maybe we could just do Father’s Day on another day instead.

Decorating – Back in March we divided up our biggest bedroom into two smaller rooms one for the twins and one for Rolando and I. We have completely stalled on getting our new partition wall decorated so still have the bare plaster partition wall. We need to get back on track and decorate our new rooms. I love the idea of getting a massive canvas for the wall at the foot of our bed. I’m trying to decide on some kind of big mural or decoration for the boys wall.

The Secret Life of Pets – we are really looking forwarding to seeing this film which was one of our film picks for 2016.

Do you have exciting plans for June?  Let’s hope this month has got good things in store for all of us!

  1. Sounds like a fab May lovely! I was in awe of the ancient Egyptians at school, so imagine it was pretty interesting. June looks set to be a good month for you too! Good luck with the solo parenting though! Braver woman than me 🙂 xx
