Siblings 2018 – May

We have been able to get outside this month, with temperatures reaching nearly 30 degrees. We’ve focused on getting the garden ready for our girls and we are nearly at a state where we are comfortable with it. Having our new Dunster House climbing frame has allowed the girls to bond so much. Mainly P2 and P3 have been out …

New Rides At Peppa Pig World Paultons Park!

Our favourite family theme park is most definitely Paultons Park and there’s no secret about it. We love the variety of things available. We recently received a Royal Invitation to the Grand Preview Days of the two new rides in the Peppa Pig World part of Paultons Park. The girls were thrilled. Sadly P1 was still suffering with chickenpox so …

Unboxing Cute New Disney Emoji Toys

The worst thing about our chickenpox experience with P2 was the boredom and cabin fever. I was extremely grateful to have received a brilliant box of Disney Emoji goodies on what was actually our worst day that week. You can watch the girls open all of the goodies in the video I created: We had been sent five of the Disney …

Our Last Day – IOW 2018

Last days are always bittersweet. I always get butterflies and nerves. Anticipation of the reality hitting when we reach our own front door and also the real want to cram as much in for the last few hours as possible. Is packed up most of our bits the night before. It made our more much less stressful which is something …

How to Keep Kids Entertained This Summer

With longer days, and higher temperatures outside it’s about time your family start sketching first summer plans. The capital is an obvious choice if you want to inspire your kids and leave them with plenty of new memories. Although London might not be the cheapest, and given the tourist peak season, difficult to plan for, it goes without saying that …

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 …

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. I took the time to cook porridge as requested by P2 and whilst Hubby had a snooze I began to edit the first vlog. Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – …

I have wrote about adventures to Chessington World Of Adventures twice before; our first experience was of their Howl-oween event three years ago now, and the second time was last year for the opening of the new Gruffalo River Ride which had replaced the much loved Bubbleworks. So for this post about our recent trip to Chessington I thought I …

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. On Friday temperatures hit a whopping 12degrees and there wasn’t a chance in hell that I’d not take full advantage of the sunshine and put together our new Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone …

Between school, available dates, and the general buzz of a busy household, finding the time to search for the best prices on offer can often seem like a little dose of extra hassle that you just don’t have time …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …
