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.

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

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.

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.

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 …

Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone Review

I completely appreciate that we’ve just come out of a pretty frozen spell of snowy weather. That it’s still floating around the 5-8degree mark most days.

When they returned we decided to head to our favourite theme park for some family time. What we …
