How to Keep Kids Entertained This Summer

With longer days, and higher temperatures outside it’s about time your family start sketching first summer plans. The capital is an obvious choice if you want to inspire your kids and leave them with plenty of new memories. Although London might not be the cheapest, and given the tourist peak season, difficult to plan for, it goes without saying that …

His 28th Birthday At Isle Of Wight Steam Railway – IOW 2018

Hubby and I are pretty bad at celebrating birthdays. We rarely get each other cards or presents and honestly birthdays are just like any other day. Only this year, we happened to be waking up at The Orchards Holiday Park for Hubby’s 28th birthday. This year I cooked bacon sandwiches for Hubby to have in bed and the girls woke him up …

Easter Hunt At Monkey Haven – IOW 2018

Following on from a busy day at Tapnell Farm, I expected to have a nice peaceful nights sleep but it sadly wasn’t. Both P2 and P3 were very unsettled from about 3am onwards. The Easter Bunny didn’t have a chance to bring his treats to the girls so I cracked on with the breakfast. When the girls went back to …

Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – IOW 2018

We woke pretty early after a full first night of sleep at The Orchards Holiday Park. The birds were singing and the sun rose over the countryside so beautifully. I took the time to cook porridge as requested by P2 and whilst Hubby had a snooze I began to edit the first vlog. Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – …

Travelling To The Isle Of Wight With Kids – IOW 2018 Day

I fell in love with the Isle Of Wight three years ago now. It’s literally the best UK destination for families with children. It has the perfect mixture of feeling like another country with all the home comforts. If you’ve been, you’ll know what I’m talking about and this is even more evident during summer months. I have eight blog …

Siblings 2018 – April

I have managed to capture lots of sibling moments this month, mainly from our holiday to the Isle Of Wight, but I am leaving those images for my diary posts that will all be going live very soon. These photos are from a little earlier on in the month. We have been doing so much more in the past month as …

Our Stay At The Orchards Holiday Park Isle Of Wight

We have been lucky enough to stay in many different holiday accommodations thanks to this little blog of mine. We’ve been glamping, hotel staying, cottages and resorts however we’ve never stayed as a family on a caravan park until last week! We had been invited to come for a seven night stay with The Orchards Holiday Park on the Isle …

Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner Review

If you are new to my blog you may not know that we recently moved home. We moved to our first non-rental and part of doing up the entire property was fitting brand new carpet throughout. Honestly, moving felt like such a grown up stage of our lives even though we’d been living together in a rented property for the …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Fort Victoria IOW

I will be blogging about our Isle Of Wight trip that we have just got back home from. I wanted to share this quick photo of my girls whilst they explored near Fort Victoria. We had never been there before or knew anything about the history. I still don’t but what I do know is that the views, the scenery …

Family Day Out To Chessington In Pictures

I have wrote about adventures to Chessington World Of Adventures twice before; our first experience was of their Howl-oween event three years ago now, and the second time was last year for the opening of the new Gruffalo River Ride which had replaced the much loved Bubbleworks. So for this post about our recent trip to Chessington I thought I …

Our First L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop Review

Somehow we’ve managed to steer clear of the craze that is hitting little girls across the world. The L.O.L Dolls. I remember there being huge hype over the large edition ones that cost loads of money and it sort of put me off because I didn’t know enough. Then we were sent three of the L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop balls to open …

Shared Bedroom Tour | House Reveal #4

If you saw the last house reveal with the Box Room Tour you will know that one big change for the girls was their bedroom changes. P1 had graduated to her own room leaving P2 and P3 to share still. There’s only 19 months between them so it made sense for it to be this way. We had big choices to make …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Happiness

This photo was taken on our way to the Isle of Wight. We’ve been for the past two years, this is our third year and it has definitely become our most favourite place to take the girls. P1 who is somebody who doesn’t adjust well to a change in environment (she’s waiting to be diagnosed with autism), has taken this …

Num Noms Inspired Easter Hunt

It’s Easter weekend! Happy Easter. Our lead up to Easter has been a little pants due to illnesses, snow and a busy daily life. I did manage to grab some Easter treats from Poundland recently but I do tend to steer away from chocolate if I’m honest. This year I wanted to do something totally different. We decided to have …
