Our Weekend Project: Nature Exploring with Anthisan

Baby girl has a new obsession with butterflies and bugs. Down the lane near where we live their are wide overgrown hedges which host an abundant of wildlife. I think it’s been an amazing Summer for butterflies and bees in our garden. We live close by to a watergarden as well, so we have seen a few dragonflies flying across the garden. They are so pretty. I really need to get some bug and insect cream in the cupboard ready for our adventures!

This weekend we have taken the opportunity to get out and have a look at what bugs we can find. The weather yesterday was a bit wet and muggy. So the waders and wellies came out! Anthisan were kind enough to send us a Nature Exploring Kit and the Ultimate Bugopedia. A fantastic book I may add!

Reminiscing over those long Summer days as a child

Losing my dad a few months back, has brought me and my siblings a lot closer together. Isn’t it funny how the loss of a loved one reunites that bond? I’ve spent a lot of the Summer reminiscing over childhood memories with my sister. Talking about the good ol days. Reminiscing over those long Summer days as a child when we would get up to lots of mischief, play cricket, stay out all hours and munch away on blackberries.

Reminiscing over those long Summer days as a child

When you are a kid the Summer’s seem much longer. We used to spend the whole day from morning until it got dark outside playing in my dad’s fields on the farm. I used to love reading my books and poems sitting in the hedge. Eating sweets and drinking a bottle of Panda Pop from my bum bag! Now I have a fondness to read in the garden when I get a few moments peace. My favourite genres are crime, thrillers and the occasionally poems about memories of childhood on my Kindle.
