Dunster House FortPlus Escape Review & Discount Code

Before our move back in October last year, we had been living in a property for four years that did not have any outdoors space. OK, I’m bending the truth a little bit, it did have some outdoor space if you count the communal access alley way for the five terraced properties we were attached to. We tried to make …

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. Honestly, moving felt like such a grown up stage of our lives even though we’d been living together in a rented property for the …

Family Day Out To Chessington In Pictures

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 …

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 …

A Rainy Day Activity With Weekend Box & Snazaroo

Hello autumnal weather. Sporadic down pours of rain and darkened days at home. My girls are struggling with the adjustments to staying indoors a little more. They thrive to be outside because there’s so many opportunities that come with being in the great outdoors. I have been finding it so difficult to keep them entertained and was really thrilled to …

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 …

Back to school is literally just around the corner for us now. There’s a matter of days to get everything together; uniform, new shoes, coats and stationery sorted.

It’s no secret that my middle daughter is a little fearless daredevil. I feel like we spend a lot of time figuring out fun things for her to try out to really push her boundaries and we have been itching to take a trip to Clip ‘n Climb. I was a little nervous as last time we planned an activity …

We have got a pretty busy summer holiday planned. There’s days out, mini breaks and play dates dotted about the entire time so I wanted to make sure I was organised the earlier part of the holidays with regards to back to school. It terrifies the heck out of me that I’ll have three little people to get organised. I …

Hosting A Disney Party Play Date

I definitely think that planning a children’s party is definitely something that makes me very anxious. I worry about all the things I might forget or that something will go drastically wrong. The Disney Store recently got in contact with me to let me know about their Disney Party section on the website and they asked if I’d like to …

Hazelnut chocolate spread has become a firm favourite in this family. The girls love to have it in a sandwich or on toast every morning. It is literally the only thing I can get them all to eat.

What’s In My Bag, The Mummy Edition

I really enjoy watching What’s In My Bag videos on YouTube. It’s a simple way to be nosy but also to get some ideas. Sometimes I am literally shocked at the amount of stuff people have in their bags. A whole makeup kit or enough nappies to last a week. I just don’t think it is necessary and I have …

Ella’s Kitchen The Easy Family Cookbook Challenge

My girls are becoming increasingly interested in cooking. I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …
