Christmas in Madison was lots of fun, especially with the welcome reinforcements in the form of Granny and Gramps, who eventually made it after some terrible delays. At least the delays were down to proper snow and not the one inch we get in the UK which seems to shut down everything and cause widespread mass panic. We hopefully erased the painful memory of delays … Continue reading Christmas Is Finally Over
I just realized I never finished the rest of our Asian story, and there was a lot to tell! We carried on exploring the beautiful island of Boracay with lots of adventures thrown in. We made new friends of all sorts of varieties. Luke even brought one home to bed with him! and no, not like that, and it was definitely more of an uninvited … Continue reading A Surprise Nightime Guest
What a whirlwind the last couple of weeks has been! We arrived home, with some Bausemums in tow to spread the addiction, and it was lovely to be back. It was also a relief to see our house still standing (phew! so I hadn’t left the oven or straighteners on). We got over the journey my way, which was possibly not the most relaxing. Whilst … Continue reading Peppa The Pig Or Panda?

Once the film had finished the relaxation was … Continue reading Bugs, Skirts and Going For A Spin

Don’t worry, the metropolis of Indiana is not being invaded by giant, floating animals. It’s parade time! In fact, we were almost flattened by said Panda as it decided to have a lie … Continue reading Hooray for the Parade.
I ventured out again today to pick up our tickets for the Indy 500 Parade. We have a road-side seat and everything :). This time, I was doing so well on the directions! Until I decided to take a random left as I feared I was edging my way out of downtown and possibly into the areas where I have been specifically told not to … Continue reading Let them eat cake. Cupcakes.
Well, I am almost adjusting to my new wake up time of quarter past 5, which is far too early in my opinion! Luke starts work at 6 (Sob 😦 ) and we always try to have breakfast together. This may be one of those traditions I wish I hadn’t started but hindsight is a wonderful thing. Maybe I will get away with pretending to … Continue reading This isn’t just any farmers market; This is an Indianapolis original farmers market.
