#MySundayPhoto – Half Term

Half term seems to have vanished before our eyes. I think that’s because we have only had the girls for half of the time they had off so we’ve barely had a chance to do anything or go on many adventures. It’s Sunday now and we are actually enjoying (hopefully) a day out in London as this goes live but …

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer. We had decided to leave P3 with my MiL because she had spent the majority of the previous two weeks being super grumpy and we had all been craving some peace. …

End Of Summer Visit To Eagle Heights

With only one more weekend left until school life and routines return, we felt like we should make the most of it. We had tickets for Eagle Heights sitting on the side for pretty much the entire summer holidays but hadn’t managed to fit a day in to make our visit. My mother-in-law also had tickets so we teamed up …

A Short Break in Hog Deer Creek At Port Lympne Reserve

I was really excited to get an invite to stay at Port Lympne Reserve. Despite living in Kent for nearly four years, being just around the corner to the reserve, we have never been. It’s one of the things I’ve had on my list of must dos. So getting the invite to not only visit but to stay too, was …

A Morning Picnic At Eynsford Ford

This week the UK has been hit with a heatwave. Offering us the most sunshine in one go than we have had in over one hundred years, apparently. It has been hitting the thirties for temperature and has pretty much been like living in a hot country. I love it! I am every inch of me a summer person and …

A Fun Free Activity This Summer

I have felt so much guilt in the leading up to this school holiday. P1 was offered another place in the holiday school. We always sign her up even though it is not compulsory. It benefits her hugely by receiving extra lessons, extra fun and chances to see her friends and even make new ones that she wouldn’t necessarily talk …

A Morning Stroll Around Haysden Country Park

Following a day of feeling numb and confused after England experiencing another terrorist attack, I felt like I needed to just get out. Which is slightly strange as I am worrying so much about crowded public spaces now. This week the weather is glorious. I’ve dusted off my summer shorts and crop tops even if it may only last a …

A Trip To Little Street Maidstone

I am always on the hunt for new ways to entertain the kids outside of our own home. When we received an invite to head along to the blogger preview of Little Street in Maidstone, I was pretty excited. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be like except the advertised “kid sized town” which instantly made …

A Country Walk At Lullingstone

I am so incredibly pleased that we have seen the back of winter now. Although saying that it still seems super freezing outside doesn’t it?! A week or so ago, we were graced with some sunshine and it finally felt bright and summery. (The photo above is courtesy of my aspiring four year old photographer – P2!) We decided to …

Sykes Cottages Review – Redwood Broadstairs

We have had some amazing opportunities to travel around England. As a family we always pick to travel west of where we live as I like to think we are exploring the country we live in. Recently we decided to change our habit and Sykes Cottages took us along the east coast of Kent to a beautiful cottage in Broadstairs …

Go Ape Tree Top Junior Adventure – When Things Don’t Go To Plan

My middle daughter who has just turned four is a little dare devil. We realised this during a trip to Paultons Park last year. She wanted to go on all of the rides and she did, including the rather scary big ones more than once. She was fearless. Then whilst at Universal Orlando Resort P2 begged us to go on …

Jump In Trampoline Arena Tonbridge Review

This past year Hubby and I have been making such a huge effort to go on little adventures where we find brand new things for the girls to do. We are sort of testing out all the local attractions to find our favourite destinations for days out or rainy day activities. I was recently made aware of a new trampoline …

The Soft Play Cafe Sevenoaks

There are many things I hate about Facebook and also, many things I love about it too. A few weeks ago something popped up on my news feed. A friend had shared a group that was about to open it’s doors. The Soft Play Cafe. She had only shared it because the photo that was used happened to feature her …

An Afternoon At Riverhill Himalayan Gardens

Two weekends ago P1 headed off to Essex to spend what originally was three nights with my Mum. They were taking P1 to Buckingham Palace on a special coach trip with my Grandad and my little Brother. The sleepovers kept getting extended and in the end she was away from Thursday to Tuesday. She had a brilliant time which I …

A Family Meal At ASK Italian Rayleigh

It has become a very rare thing for us to eat out as a family. We always have good intentions of a nice relaxed bonding time over a meal cooked for us in a nice restaurant. The reality of it is, going out for a meal with three small children is one of the most stressful experiences in our family …
