Instameetbanbridge

Following on from lovely meetings Ive had with several people through the squares of Instagram I decided how I would love for others who maybe where a bit nervous to come along to ‘blogger’ events or attend bigger meet ups to come together in a smaller setting; Hence the Insta meet in Banbridge – my local home town – came together.

Life behind the hyperlinks

One massive positive that has come from social media in the last few months for me has been meeting some of the lovely people behind the squares of instagram or linked to blogs I read. It has been highlighted by a number of people on social media sites such as insta, Facebook and through different blogs I have read just about how positive this little community here in Northern Ireland can be.

Nursery school truly is remarkable from the teachers to the resources, the learning opportunities both inside and outside the classrooms and the friendships made just to name a few.

March Round Up

March is always a pretty mad month for us in this household. We have 3 family birthdays, easter on the horizon and Mothers Day thrown in there for good measure. While the birthdays were not big important numbers Olivias birthday took president as this year she really knew what was going on, who she wanted at her party, what cake she wanted and where she wanted to have it. Ever since she began nursery school all events that place have so much more meaning and it’s really lovely to see her enjoying them all so much more.
