Picking Our Own Pearls At Isle Of Wight Pearl – IOW 2018

I can’t believe I’m still writing these posts over two weeks after our actual trip! Life has been crazy which hopefully I’ll get round to writing about soon. I sort of miss my personal blog posts. Finally the sun was shining, typically for our last full day on the island. There was blue skies over our caravan at The Orchards …

Carisbrooke Castle & JR Zone – IOW 2018

It was a rather windy and wet night at The Orchards Holiday Park. It definitely made getting ready for the day much harder than it would have if it was warm and bright. Breakfast was fed to the girls as usual – usual being three different breakfast options and then we headed out of the holiday park for another day …

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 …

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 …

When Will Winter & Spring Finish Their Arguing?

Seriously Spring time, grow some balls and kick this Winter away sooner rather than later. So in case you are not living in the UK, we are currently living in an icy, snowy, winter wonderland yet again. It’s hard to believe that the photos in this blog post were taken on Friday. On Friday, I found myself outside without my …

Tips For A Family Day Out At Paultons Park & Peppa Pig World

Half term sort of didn’t happen for us. We only had the girls for three and a bit days. They got to spend some much needed time with their Grandparents in Essex leaving Hubby and I to relax and enjoy some peace. When they returned we decided to head to our favourite theme park for some family time. What we …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – A Snowy Week

I’m meant to share one, or two photos for My Sunday Photo each week but I just couldn’t pick from all of the lovely memories we’ve captured this week. What a week we have had across the UK! I posted about the snow day we had in Kent on Tuesday. That was the main dumping of snow that we had …

Our Historic Chatham Dockyard Day Out

He doesn’t like too much fuss so I’ll make this part brief, but my brother turned 18 years old last Saturday. Honestly, I have no idea how my not-so-little brother is officially an adult now. I remember when he was born, I adored him instantly especially as he gifted me a Furby. We had lots of fun growing up. To …

Special Needs Diary #13 – A Long Needed Update On Our Autism Journey

It’s been nearly a whole year since I last updated or spoke properly about P1’s special needs. It has been such an exhausting year but I think that we are heading in the right direction finally. I learn new things about P1 each day yet it’s hard to actually pin point the differences when people ask us. How do you …

#MakeTracks With A Family & Friends Railcard This Autumn

I pop on a train quite frequently for blog related shindigs but it’s actually quite rare for us to go with the kids or as a family. A few months ago I took P2 by herself to London and she had such a brilliant adventure that it made me want to experience train adventures more often.  We was asked by …

IOW 2017 Day 8 – Quick Visit To Blackgang & The Ferry Home

The weather was in tune with my emotions for our last day. It was gloomy and foggy. My heart felt heavy with sadness as we prepared to leave The West Bay Club. Staying in the House Of Liz Earle was just magical; it was a fantastic place to recuperate (as much as the girls would allow) in the evenings, for the girls …

IOW 2017 Day 7 – Blackgang Chine

I actually finally had a more chilled out morning. The motivation and excitement for our day ahead clearly got me out of the incredibly comfortable bed at West Bay. Whilst doing my makeup I heard that dreaded thudding of a child falling down the stairs, thankfully P2 had caught her little sister has she nearly tumbled down the entire flight …

IOW 2017 Day 3 – Model Village, Tapnell Farm & The Cow Co.

I woke up earlier than the day before. I decided to have a shower and whilst I was half way through shaving my legs, the fire alarm went off. This woke Hubby is a shock and he leaped out of bed to press the button. He ended up pressing it about ten times but it kept coming back on. So …
