Summer holidays, you either love them or hate them. I am never sure about which camp I am in. I love spending time with the children but do worry about the cost of summer activities. I relish not having to get up each morning and giving up the school routine, but I don’t like hearing the words “I’m Bored” That is why I came up with the bored jar (about four years ago).
I am a football Mum. In fact, Maxi has been playing football for a team at the local football club since he was five years old. Over the years I have seen a massive transformation in grass roots football and now at our Football Club there are as many girls teams as there are boys and this makes me ever so happy and proud to be working with SSE to publicise how they are the energy behind women’s football.
It really feels as though Spring might have sprung here and this plastic bottle wind spiral mobile is perfect for hanging out in the garden and watching spin as the wind catches it. I love that it is a cross between process art and a craft and it is a great activity for preschoolers through to tweens.
We are delighted to be working with Boots UK this year to highlight their “Jump for Pudsey” Campaign to raise money for BBC Children in Need this half term. Boots UK want to encourage the nation to get active, have some fun and raise money for BBC Children in Need. Whether it is leaps, launches, bounds or hops; the goal is for the UK to spring its way to one million jumps.
I am delighted to be working with SSE in raising awareness of and increasing the opportunity for girls to get involved in football from a young age and am over the moon to be able to share with you this amazing video about football (soccer to my American readers) helping overcome life’s greatest challenges as part of SSE’s Dads and Daughters programme.
Some of my fondest memories of summers’ past are the picnics that I had with my family. Growing up, my Mum and Aunty would pack a picnic and we would visit our local woods, and me and my cousins would have a blast.

As part of the Sprinkles of Summer Fun campaign fab® ice lollies is giving you the opportunity to win your ultimate summer of fun along with regular opportunities to win products that will help make summer more fun, so make sure you like their Facebook more »
