Win Autumn Wellies for the Family at Shoetique

I make no secret of the fact that I really love autumn and all that it brings with it. There really is nothing nicer than going for a long autumn walk. The sound of the crispy leaves crunching underfoot, the cool air pinching at your cheeks leaving you with that gorgeous healthy glow. It’s cool outside, but not too cold, which is why I much prefer an autumn walk over a winter walk. The freshness is invigorating! And when a walk is finished off with a large mug of gently warming hot chocolate and plenty of whipped cream, well, who […]

We don’t really do date night, or nights out. That kind of thing just isn’t possible when you […]

Wreck It Ralph & The Tree Stump

On a recent day out we found a tree stump, that had been hollowed out for some reason. To me it was just hollowed out tree stump, nothing special. For Neil though, it was special. It was more than just an old stump, it was the gateway to a world of adventure. Neil was fascinated with it. He climbed in to investigate, before declaring that this was in fact Wreck It Ralph’s tree stump, and that he was Wreck It Ralph. He’s watched the movie about 100 times, when it first came out he went through a phase of wanting […]
