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 …

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

She’s So Good At Puzzles

As a child I used to love doing puzzles. Don’t judge me for blowing my own trumpet, but I was pretty good! Strangely enough two of my three daughters have followed in my footsteps with not only a love for puzzles but a skill for them too. My eldest has lost a little bit of interest as she’s grown older …

Our Historic Chatham Dockyard Day Out

He doesn’t like too much fuss so I’ll make this part brief, but my brother turned 18 years old last Saturday. Honestly, I have no idea how my not-so-little brother is officially an adult now.
