{The Ordinary Moments 15} #10 'Bits and Pieces'

Normally, most of our weeks are pretty similar. We tend to go to soft play on a Monday, nursery on Tuesdays and Thursdays and then we meet friends on a Friday. We have swimming lessons with Waterbabies on a Saturday (which tends to cut into the entire day) and then we visit somewhere local on a Sunday if Mr F isn't busy with his singing. 

This week still felt like a pretty normal week but we seemed to do a few extra bits here and there which were all lots of fun and which I like to document and be able to look back on. This week my lovely sister in law came up to visit for a day and we went to the most gorgeous cafe/deli/pottery called Cobbles and Clay in the village of Haworth not too far from where we live. The food was just scrummy and we even managed to get some little painted handprints from Little One. I'd definitely recommend a visit there if ever you're visiting Yorkshire.

On Wednesday we tried out a new playgroup. There's not much in the way of groups around our village so we tend to go on a bit of a drive to find nice places to go. We found a fab little playgroup in another village which is run by a local secondary school with help from girls from the 6th form who are studying for Health and Social care GNVQs. After a nervous start from Little One, we had such a lovely time doing all sorts of crafty bits, singing and just playing and it's nice to support local playgroups which so often have to shut down due to lack of funding.


We don't buy new toys very often, but when we find something which Little One shows a real interest in at a group or play centre, we sometimes go and find one for him to have at home. This week we got a Scuttlebug- something he has been interested in for ages. It's proven to be a real hit and he's been scooting about on it around the house all week. Seeing his little face light up when he rides around on it makes it totally worthwhile. 


I've only been blogging just under a year so haven't had much opportunity to get out there and meet other bloggers but I recently got invited to my first proper 'event'. We were asked, together with a few other bloggers including Charlotte from The Crumby Mummy and Nikki from Keeping Strong and Moving Forward) to go and try out a new Beano themed play centre called 'Play at Brewers Fayre'. I was able to go along yesterday with some of my lovely friends and their littlies, and we had a fantastic time (more on this in a later post). I felt really honoured to have been asked to go along and it was nice to meet a couple of other bloggers in real life, not just from behind the confines of a computer screen. It's definitely made me want to get out there and meet more of you lovely bloggers in real life, and try and get along to a few more events.

    1. Aaw thanks for popping by Mary- I really love reading everyone's comments and I'm always interested to know if anyone has been to any of the places that I mention! There are so many fantastic places to visit Round Yorkshire- I feel very lucky to be able to drive to so many of them within 30 mins or so. The food at the cafe is still amazing too! You should definitely go back! Amelia x

  2. Ah sounds like a lovely week- you sound so similar to me in that you usually have your set routines in the week. It must have been nice to go to a new group- there isn't much round here really for Mads age especially- bar the usual soft play rubbish which I go to even though I hate! I would love to meet you at an event sometime, well done for getting out there and going to one. x

    1. Ah yes I'm such a creature of habit- I like my week to be planned out and it always tends to be the same, but it seems to work well! The only time it varies is when we are away. I am trying to avoid soft play at the moment as it's draining my bank balance- play groups are soooo much cheaper! Would love to meet you too sometime :) hopefully I'll rock up at something one day ;) xx

    1. Haha you're spot on- he is so cheeky! You can see it in his eyes ;) It's a scuttlebug- you can get them in Argos for £24.99- one of the best toys I've bought him- and they fold down really small too. xx
