Welcome to my world of the school summer holidays. I hope you will join me as I blog daily regularly sporadically about our everyday life adventures.
Regular readers/friends will know we are a family of 5 plus George the cat. So why, oh why, would I agree to have a family of FOUR come to stay as house guests for the entire summer?
Let me explain how it happened….are you sitting comfortably?…..then I’ll begin….!
As a blogger you get some strange requests from companies and their PRs. Usually I quickly scan their email, realize my readers have little interest in learning more about incontinence pads or family tax credits on my blog and I move on with my life.
Sometimes however an offer intrigues you and your curiosity gets the better of you….and sometimes you end up inviting 4 strangers to move in!
Of course as those schmaltzy cards say “strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet” ( ?!!!)
So let me introduce our house guests
Mini-Mum, Mini-Man, Mini-Mindy and Mini-Max:-
First impressions – well mannered, limited luggage and the kids have definitely been taught that children should be seen and not heard!
I hope you don’t mind if I share their experiences this summer as, let’s face it, my kids are getting more than tired of mum always wanting to take their photos for the blog….it is SO embarrassing…..and of course taking photos of dolls our house guests is going to be SO much less embarrassing!
Declaration – our guests (the Mini family) previously lived with John Crane Toys and despite having some beautiful accommodation, their main home being this beautiful Marlborough dolls house and having a medieval castle as their holiday home, they wanted to experience life in the real world….
So Mini family – welcome to my world 🙂
I am linking this post to The Inspired Room – what is inspiring you this summer (and I assume I am the only one who is inspired by wooden dolls!)
Finally – can you guess what this is? I made 2 of them this week. Find out more in my next post!
