I promised last week to share my planned reads for over the summer – We are away on 2 holidays and that is when I do most of my reading (I do talk to my family, honest!) I’m a quick reader so can whizz through a book in a day sometimes and still manage to play on the beach with the kids & indulge in
Every July, I get overwhelmed by the girls’ activities – I say every single summer that I am not going to forget and take too much on the following summer. I’m not going to leave the holiday preparation until last minute and I’m definitely not going to get behind on cakes. Guess what? I forgot! There’s barely a parent I see around that isn’t feeling
We had a lovely weekend – The sun was out for most of it which helps but we came across a great initiative in Leeds that made it even nicer.

We are now at the end of the first half term of all 3 Costellos being in school and I will admit to thinking I would have a bit more time than I have. The fact that I started writing
I first had the idea to tell you about the new addition to the Costello family last week but never quite got round to it. This weekend though, the number of new members of the Costello clan multiplied. At first glance, you must be thinking, be proud. And indeed, we are. But all is not as it seems. So what are the new additions? They
I love the kids being off school but there’s no doubt that entertaining them for 6 weeks is exhausting. I want them to look back on their summers and realise how fun filled they were.
