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 …

Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – IOW 2018

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 – …

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

I fell in love with the Isle Of Wight three years ago now. It’s literally the best UK destination for families with children. It has the perfect mixture of feeling like another country with all the home comforts. If you’ve been, you’ll know what I’m talking about and this is even more evident during summer months. I have eight blog …

Finding The Right Time To Book That Family Holiday

It can be tricky to balance the daily running of your home and plan a family break at the same time. 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 – Daffodil Season

I walk to school or nursery every single day at least once, usually three times, and it’s a great way for me to start taking in my local area and noticing habits. Suddenly over the past week I have started to see shoots of little flowers emerging from their beds. For me, it’s a sign that Spring and warmer, longer …

IOW 2017 Day 4 – Robin Hill, Trampolining Lessons & Swimming

The weather was a little more gloomy on Thursday morning. The bright sunshine had disappeared behind clouds and the wind was back in full force. I popped on my ripped jeans and a coat and we headed off to Robin Hill Country Park. We hadn’t actually been to Robin Hill before and didn’t really know what to expect at all. …

Our First Experience Of Glamping At Chalke Valley Camping

This summer Hubby put a budget away so that we could go on some mini breaks. It was so exciting to have the chance to pick pretty much anywhere. Hubby randomly decided that Glamping would be a fun idea and found availability at Chalke Valley Camping in Salisbury and so we booked to stay for two nights. Unfortunately the journey …

Wednesday At My Grandad’s

When we moved counties nearly four years ago, we promised ourselves that we would head back to our home town every two weeks ish. But the reality of life and commitments sort of stretched this and sometimes we can suddenly realise it’s been nearly two months or so. My Grandad lives in Essex and he’s the one person who I …

It’s Strawberry Picking Season Again

The first time I went strawberry picking was last year and once we’d been, we were there nearly every week during strawberry season. We went to Open Farm Sunday and I’ve sort of got a bug for the whole country living, farming thing. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been binge watching Heartland which is all about the country way …

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 Summer Play Date

I have a small group of friends over here in Kent. This is something completely alien to me though and I am still learning all the etiquette of friendships and play dates because since I left school and had P1, I found all of my friends to disappear and I was quite happy being alone. But in the past few months …

Bath Time With Childs Farm

Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our body? Did you know that the hair on our head is there to act as a coolant and insulator but also to protect us from the sun’s UV rays? This week our skin has been enjoying lapping up some Vitamin D from the sun that has been shining …

Oh my goodness, hands up if you’re loving this hot weather? I definitely prefer warmer weather over the cold weather. It makes me feel happier and more at ease with life in general. We still have a few more days left of school for P1 but P2 has already broken up for the summer holidays. We’ve started to put together …

Climbing The Stairs At 10 Months

In January last year P2 climbed my MiLs stairs for the very first time. She was 11 months and 10 days old. It shocked us as she’d never made any indications that she wanted to climb anything. Today, at 10 months and 11 days old, P3 has climbed my MiLs stairs for the first time. I didn’t get to capture …
