20 questions to ask your kids project. I had a look at their worksheet and thought it would be a great activity to do with Pip. I ask him questions every day but there were some on the sheet I had never asked so I was keen and curious to see what he had to say. Plus, it's a lovely little way to document these moments in 'real life' and on the blog. He's nearly three and a half now and such a sweet, funny and boisterous little boy. His speech, sense of humour and imagination are developing every day. I took a video of us as I asked the questions and Pip gave his answers, some so funny. It will be lovely to look back at it in the future. Here's a little transcript of the questions I asked & his exact answers, some very cute, some hilarious and some completely unexpected!

This year is really rushing by and before we all blink we'll be at the end of 2016. I'm very excited about Christmas this year. Pip is nearly three and a half and at a great age to understand 'Santa' and everything this festive season entails. He has so many toys already so I'm not going to buy him too much this year but I do know what he'll love to receive, usually anything relating to trains and train track. In the run up to the festive season brands such as Smyths have just released their Christmas top toys list. If you need some Christmas toy inspiration here are some of the wonderful items I've seen recently.
This week has been full of rain, wind and gloomy weather unfortunately. But on Friday there was a little window of sunshine so I took the opportunity to take Pip to the seaside. I wrapped us up in layers as it was very cold and the water choppy with a high tide but it was so nice having the warmth of the sunshine on our faces! We took a whole load of selfies with Pip pulling the most funny faces, he is hilarious at the moment and makes me laugh so much. He scooted up and down with me trying to keep up and we stayed to watch the sunset. It was a beautiful afternoon.
Have you been to the coast lately?

I've spent a lot of time in Asia. I lived in Japan for a year teaching English, have family in India and did the whole backpacking tour throughout Thailand and the Philippines in my twenties. Now that my little boy is three and has already been to India, I'd love to return to Asia with him and explore more of the beautiful continent. The combination of stunning beaches, amazing sunsets, delicious food, diverse cultures and ethnicities and wonderful historical sites is all incredible. India will always have a special place in my heart since I have family there and I hope to return as much as I can. I’d also love to return to Japan and the stunning island of Bali, where I visited many years ago. With a population of over 260 million people, the fourth largest in the world, and some 14,000 islands, there is a lot to see in Indonesia! I have really fond memories of Bali and want to focus on five reasons to visit this beautiful island.

This week's featured post is a day trip to Hart-Miller Island in Maryland, USA from Also Coffee. It looks like such a beautiful island and I loved all the action shots with the dog, who looks incredibly entertained in the photographs! I've never been to Maryland, the nearest I've visited is New York city but this Hart-Miller Island looks like a peaceful getaway and a wonderful place to explore. Have a read if you haven't already.
Each month I give away £50 to a lucky winner and out of all of the featured posts from October the one that stood out was Mummy Travels and her post on the #take12trips challenge. Congratulations Cathy, a Truprint voucher is on it's way to you!
This week I'm linking up my post on a beautiful Brighton sunset I saw recently. Remember, the definition of a trip is "a journey or excursion, especially for pleasure" so #MyFavouriteTrip is designed for any trip, big or small!

Happy November! I can't believe the year has gone so fast. Summer really did seem to stretch out luckily but the last few months have really flown by for me. Although the weather is colder I do love Autumn and all the vibrant colour it brings. Blossoming Gifts recently sent me one of their beautiful Autumn flower ranges named 'Woodland' which includes orange lilies, cherry brandy roses, burgundy hypericum berries and natural birch. It's a gorgeous bouquet perfect for the season and brightens up my house adding a ray of sunshine on these chilly days.
