Part 2 – Universal Orlando Resort – VIP Tour Experience

All three of the girls slept straight through their first night in Orlando. Despite being super comfortable in the air conditioned Garden Room of the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, I didn’t sleep too well. I think I was overtired and had adrenaline pumping through me as I anticipated the day ahead. I’d set my alarm for early. I had expected …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

We’re Off On A Dream Holiday To Orlando

I get sent blogging opportunities near enough daily. Some are just not of interest, some are fun and some are so dreamy you feel a little giddy about them. A few weeks ago, I was amongst hundreds who applied to go on a blog trip to Orlando and I felt there really was no chance in hell that my little …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Seven

A mixture of exhaustion, short tempered children, a bit of sun burn on Hubby’s back and the end of holiday blues, meant that Hubby and I weren’t really feeling our last full day on the Isle of Wight. We attempted to put on a brave face and headed to The Needles.  I had no idea what to expect from the …

Special Needs Diary #7 – Going On Holiday

Dear Diary, I am writing this just four days after our big family holiday, but you most likely won’t be reading it until a few weeks later. Holidays are always something I really get anxious about with P1. As she’s getting older she is becoming more aware of her surroundings, she has preferences and can get rather emotional and hard …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Six

I think by the sixth day, heading towards the end of our week, everyone was getting rather emotional and tired. The girls were becoming a little bit difficult but thankfully we had a new experience for the girls to enjoy, a Steam Railway. To be honest I don’t really know much about the Isle Of Wight and it’s history so …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Three

In the morning of our third day the farmer at Kempshill Farm popped by to see if we wanted to watch the cows be fed. Of course the kids were really excited so we headed round the barns. He was really informative about the cows meat and explained how he operates and what types of meat we should actually be …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Two

Despite having a long first day on the Isle Of Wight P2 still woke in the night. I hoped that the black out blind and being at the other end of the barn would help her sleep. It did a little bit on our first night as she only woke at 5 am which was much better than usual. However, …

8 Best Theme Parks And Attractions In Madrid

When you think Madrid city breaks, you probably think history museums and art galleries, architectural landmarks and fine dining.

A Dinosaur Adventure At The Dinosaur Park Tenby

It was an early checkout at Bluestone last week and although you can stay on site until 3pm to enjoy all the facilities, we decided to make a move and Hubby researched some local things to do with the kids. The Dinosaur Park Tenby was just a 20 minute drive away and happened to be on our way home. My girls are …

A Weekend At Bluestone Wales

We’ve had an incredibly stressful few weeks with car troubles. Having to rent a car for two weeks and the garage messing us around big time. I was extremely welcome of an email from Bluestone Wales inviting me along to a last minute weekend break. Although we had no car, this was an offer I couldn’t refuse and we really …
