I always seem to keep my cards out for as long as possible, but today I started to move them to make way for our Easter wishes. My card from my youngest caught my eye and I remembered her little poem and figured I would share it with you.
She’s quite the poet, but not so much a conventional one!
roses are red, violets are blue, (sorry about this), I like to pee in the toilet, so you should too!
from Hollie, p.s some mummy fun!
I lost my blogging mojo for a bit there, but yay it’s back!
At my poppits school, they try to encourage the kids to walk to school to save the planet, you know from pollution and stuff. Thing is it’s kinda hard to get the kids on board and it’s become a bit of a family joke now cos I say “come on we’re saving the planet!” and my
little horrors sweet cherubs chime, “and mummy’s bum”, nice huh!
Anyways I’ve decided to do something about it once and for all, so I joined a group 5k a day keeps the fat at bay! (anyone who usually tunes in knows I’m bonkers so this won’t surprise you) It’s an open group join if you dare here!
So far so good, I’m currently on day 9 and have had all the delights that the good old British weather has to offer, spring sun, wind and rain, and my personal fave snow blizzard!
So I reckon when the chips are down, the girl done good!
I’ll keep you posted and if my bum shrinks sufficiently I may even share a snap!

Here at littlepoppits i’m
just about keeping my head above water really enjoying half-term!
We had a great adventure yesterday which I thought I’d share with you. We had a lovely nature walk at a beautiful beauty spot near us, Saltern Copse in Chichester Harbour. We like to get a large stick and attach things we find on our walk to it with string and keep in the garden to remember our fun times!
here’s some pics:
and climbing trees!
we had fun by the harbour
Ok, so Valantines day is a time to spread the love right? well my cutie pie youngest thinks so and sent me this adorable poem:
roses are red
violets are blue
if you love me
I love you!
On the flip side, my cheeky little man sends his poor old mum, aka me, this not so adorable ode:
Roses are red
and violets are blue
if you eat too much
you’ll get a big Bum
Oh well guess you can’t win em all!
Kids God love em!
I was chuffed to bits when I got my mitts on this beautiful Oil painting “Folksy Chicken” by Karin Naylor. She is an amazing self-taught artist, painting with vibrant colours for an impressionistic style.
I won it in a giveaway at her blog rosemary lavander and thyme and unless you count a carton of grapefruit juice I’ve never won anything before! If you haven’t come across this awesome blog before you should hop on over now!
Meanwhile, down at littlepoppits we woke up to a blanket of snow. We don’t get much of the stuff here so before school the kids had to have a snowball fight! The chooks were not impressed and hid behind the trees, but the kids loved it!
A trip to the dentist is always something I dread but it’s the waiting room that really gets my goat!
See something always goes down when my littlepoppits hit the scene, and our latest visit was no different!
My eldest heads for the joke book to continually recite jokes to all in earshot and many who are not! (kinda cute I guess). Meanwhile my boy has spotted the water machine and what with the lady next to him tutting and the pool of water on the floor, looks like he’s on cup 10 at least!
What to do, well right or wrong I told a porky, I quietly whispered that there was a camera connected to the police station watching and anymore messing around and we would probably get put in jail! That seemed to work and he moved away from the water machine pretty quick! So I was hopeful that I was looking like a good mum in control.
Not a chance, a quick glance to my left and my youngest is scoffing sweets she’s smuggled in past me!
Oh well. Kids god love em.
This is such a cute idea that we got from my daughters brownie book!
In Japan at new year, people send special postcards to their friends and family, to say thank you for their help in the past year.
It’s a really sweet way to say thank you to loved ones, and the kids had great fun making some for their grandparents.
