BBC Countryfile Live 2018 – Our Photo Diary

I’m still in a sort of bubbly come down from attending BBC Countryfile Live at the beginning of August. The atmosphere and buzz was just incredible. We spent Thursday and Friday in the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace in Oxford. It was our first experience of a proper festival. I’m going to be honest and say that I don’t think …

The Play Beach At Marsh Farm

Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park is a place that holds so many fond memories. Although a lot has changed since my childhood visits there with my School, my parents and grandparents, it still remains one of my top favourite places to take the girls. This time we had been lucky enough to visit Marsh Farm for their new Play Beach …

Shark Cordless Vacuum Review – Changing The Way I Hoover

I’m sure I’m not the only one to put my hands up and admit to not being joyous at the thought of household cleaning chores. As I’m sure you’ve guessed from the title I’m specifically talking about hoovering. We previously had a Henry. We had a strong loyalty to him, that thing sucks up everything! But he was and is …

I’ve been so excited to share this post with you all and finally I can. A month or so ago we were approached by the Post Office to help raise awareness of Life Insurance. It came at a really important time for our family so I was really interested in taking part. They wanted me to ask P2 some questions …

Crate Creatures Surprise

I’ve always loved to give the girls a little treat at the end of the school year. It’s my way of saying well done for such a busy year. It seemed super fitting that P2 would be given a monster, seeing as the card she signed for her Teaching Assistant was a picture of a monster with “A Thank You …

The Beach At Bluewater 2018

What does summer time mean to you? For my little tribe it means longer days, ice creams, sand, shorts and sandals (Although Hubby is still refusing to embrace man sandals or flip flops so his feet are so pale!)! We adore summer here. Last year The Beach at Bluewater arrived for summer and we had a great time so I was thrilled …

Creative Fun With Hama Beads & Giveaway

“Mummy can we do an activity?” Are the words that come out of my darling middle daughters mouth every single day. We once had a pretty extensive crafting/activity cupboard around Christmas time but with P2’s relentless requests that supply has gone down rapidly. We are working with DKL over the next few months to showcase some of their amazing toy …

Revamping The McDonald’s Happy Meal

I am definitely not ashamed to admit that my family love a McDonald’s. We don’t go often but I think it’s a great treat for the girls and have always loved the food. I was lucky enough to work with McDonald’s to go behind the scenes in one of their restaurants, hear about future plans (one of which happened to …

Dinosaurs In The Wild Summer 2018

Back in February I sent my girls with their Grandparents to the VIP Launch of Dinosaurs In The Wild. They had a brilliant time and even went again the following day.

The End Of The School Year & Teacher Gift Ideas With Petit-Fernand

If you are anything like me then you’ve been living in a sort of denial about the end of the school year so quickly approaching. I hadn’t really realised that it was the last term if I’m honest. This year honestly is going so incredibly fast. It was a big year for us with P2 starting big school and P3 …

Sure Flap Microchip Connected Pet Door Review

A few months ago one of the two kittens we rescued from the RSPCA went missing. We’ve had them for nearly a year now, over that time they have grown their own personalities and we’ve noticed routines. So when Billy hadn’t returned to meow at the door (we didn’t have a cat flap) for over an hour I knew something …

Dunster House FortPlus Escape Review & Discount Code

Before our move back in October last year, we had been living in a property for four years that did not have any outdoors space. OK, I’m bending the truth a little bit, it did have some outdoor space if you count the communal access alley way for the five terraced properties we were attached to. We tried to make …
