Open Farm Sunday 2017

I was made aware of Open Farm Sunday last year by the good world of social media. We had a brilliant time wandering around with a rather cute little P3. As soon as the date for the next year was released I popped it in my diary. I have been so excited about Open Farm Sunday. For those of you who …

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 …

Siblings 2017 – May

Is anyone else getting super annoyed by the ever changing weather? I know we are in England and it’s expected but my golly I don’t know whether I am coming or going. I never know whether to pack winter coats or dress them in summer dresses. P2 especially has wanted to wear her sandals even when it is raining. This …

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 …

Family Holiday Packing Made Easier

Everyone loves a holiday. They are when most families create their best memories. There really is nothing like getting away from everyone for a few days and spending time just relaxing and focusing 100% on each other. The only problem is that organising a family holiday is often stressful. Deciding where to go and booking is not too difficult. You …

The mifold Grab & Go Booster

A few weeks ago we were sent two of the most advanced, compact and portable booster seats in the world, the mifold. Hubby was really excited by this as we have recently adapted our car from a five seater to a seven seater. Our boot seats are actually suitable to be used without a car seat (don’t ask me how …

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 …

Babyzen YOYO+ Stroller Review

I have had my fair share of pushchairs in my eight years of parenting. But the Babyzen YOYO+ Stroller has literally blown my mind. It arrived to our door in a really small box compared to usual pushchairs that I wasn’t sure it actually was what it was. We chose the white frame with the pink colour pack for our …

The Belfry Hotel & Resort Review

For our second night in Birmingham and following our visit to Cadbury World, we headed further North to Sutton Coldfield. The Belfry Hotel & Resort is award winning and set in over 500 acres of countryside. I was pretty excited about this hotel visit as my Grandad had told me that he had stayed there over 40 years ago! As we entered …

A Family Trip To Cadbury World 2017

It’s been quite a few years since my first ever visit to Cadbury World. I remember having an amazing time and had only been back once again when P1 was very young. Over the past five years I have tried to convince Hubby to let us go there as a family and finally we went. We arrived about half an …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

Harry Potter Studio Tour London

When we were in Orlando we got to visit The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter. It meant so,etching to Hubby and me but for the girls, they had absolutely no clue. P1 asked questions but I’d always felt she was a little young for the Harry Potter films. Then a few months later she was invited to a Harry Potter …

Kia Niro 2 Hybrid SUV Family Car Review

I am bringing a completely different review to the mix today. We were recently given the opportunity to experience an extended test drive of the Kia Niro 2 a few weeks ago. Now I am definitely not a car expert but I can drive so I hope that counts for something. We are a family of five with young children …

Part 5 – Universal Orlando Resort – The Last Day

Waking up on our last day in the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel felt strange. Our time in Orlando seemed to have whizzed by in a busy blur full of happy memories and laughing that we just didn’t want to go home. I felt more aware of our surroundings and found myself taking it it, taking mental pictures as I longed …
