Just before the school holidays started I squeezed in a visit with the wonderful children and staff of the Busy Bee’s Early Years & Nature Centre at Leasingham.
I took my ‘Gull & Buoy Publishing EYFS Story Sack’ with me and it once again proved a big hit with the children who loved playing with it, whilst there I shared the story of Claudius Crab with them, it’s the story of a little crab who has a huge heart and we enjoyed colouring in some ‘Hide & Seek’ coastal colouring sheets ♥ Claire, the owner & manager, and I felt there was a subtle comparison within his story for the older children who would be leaving the Preschool to move onwards & upwards to BIG school this September.
As always I had a lovely time and look forward to visiting again soon, perhaps next time I’ll read ‘The Famous Fins of Florence Fish’ ♥
“There once lived a fish far away off the coast, who tried to fit in but was different to most…”
This delightful children’s picture book tells the story of Florence who discovers that being a ‘fish out of water’ isn’t such a bad thing after all…
How is your Summer holiday going so far? 🙂 or 🙁
Perhaps you’ve already been away on holiday or are heading off soon, may be you’re having a staycation this Summer. If that’s the case we are definitely blessed with so many places to visit here in the British Isles and the forecast is looking pretty good at the moment after a scorching start to the six week school holiday.
I read some fantastic “survival” tips on the Mental Wealth Hub website, check them out at www.mentalwealthhub.com/blogs/parents-survival-gude-to-the-summer-holidays/
What are we doing I hear you ask, well the Gull & Buoy family are heading to Italy for a week. It will be our first holiday abroad in many years so we are all very excited 🙂 Whatever you are doing we hope you have a great time this Summer and remember…
‘If you’re near the coast and you spot a bird that is doing a dance that looks quite absurd, he won’t be looking for fish, prawns or squid, he’ll be dancing for worms, he’ll be stomping like Sid!’
Are you heading off for a cheeky staycation this Bank Holiday weekend? Head over to our Facebook page and tell us your plans, post a pic or send us a postcard! Whether you are or you aren’t we hope you have a good one come rain or shine! #bankholiday #staycation #fingerscrossedforsun #takeabrolly 😉
I hope everyone had a peaceful and happy Easter. My family & I certainly enjoyed ours, we had some lovely family time at home before our holiday to back to Anglesey (where we were lucky enough to live for over 6 years). Feeling refreshed now and back in the office today! Time to catch up with all things Gull & Buoy whilst enjoying a nice panad (cuppa!) 🙂
Bon voyage! We are heading off to make some new memories!!!
On the flip side of that we are out of the office until Friday afternoon, any orders placed before then will be processed upon our return. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Have a lovely Easter week everyone 🙂
The Gull & Buoy family are beyond excited to be heading back to where it all began next week for our Easter holiday! We are currently writing our ‘ANGLESEY’ wish lists of places to visit. It will be our first trip back in 3 years – it’s been far too long!!!
Head over to our ‘Gull & Buoy Publishing’ Facebook page to give us your best recommendations:
What’s new on the Island?

And so to my primary role in life as a mum who runs her own little business, the Easter holidays mean I have 2 little “helpers” for a fortnight!
These Easter holidays are a busy time for Gull & Buoy Publishing as Retailers stock up in preparation for the holiday makers heading to the coast. So I’m happy to say Retailer, Amazon and Gull & Buoy website orders will continue to be fulfilled as normal but our social media and online activity will be on the quiet side so please forgive the quiet spell.
In the meantime myself and the little Pickles wish you a peaceful and happy Easter.
