Parent Friendly Stays #ParentPanel – Treworgey Cottages, Cornwall

I love thinking back to my own childhood holidays and the memories that surround them. Lots of country air, fields, animals and pure magical experiences. My Grandad had a very close friend who owned a farm in Somerset. We’d spend our holidays there helping muck out the cows, running around the many acres of fields and feeding the animals. For …

Disney On Ice 100 Years Of Magic Review

On Sunday we attended Disney On Ice’s 100 Years Of Magic at the O2 arena. It had been arranged for a few months so I was extremely excited about going for so long. I used to ice skate during my teen years. Anyway, we’d decided to take just P1 and P2, leaving P3 with my MiL. We wanted to spend …

Our Play Date with Dr Miriam Stoppard & Galt Toys

I’m familiar with Dr Miriam Stoppard’s parenting books so we jumped at accepting the invitation to attend an interactive play class with herself and Galt Toys at The Kids Stuff Toys in Ashford. I decided to take the train with P2 and P3 to give hubby a break and he kindly offered to drop us to the station before dropping …

Milkshake Party Party Tour Review

The Cliffs Pavilion holds very special memories for me. Every year my Grandparents would book for us to go and see the Christmas pantomime. We’d always arrive early, sit by the window looking over the sea, Grandad would buy me a Programme and sometimes I’d be allowed a small gift too. My Nan would always insist they booked the front …

The Ideal Home Show with John Lewis & Quiet Mark

A couple of weeks ago the lovely people at John Lewis invited me along to the Ideal Home Show. I’ve never been to anything like that before, I’ve stuck to just Baby Shows! But with ideas flowing through my brain about our home and the chance to get inspired we accepted and headed to London. It was amazing and so …

Happy Birthday BumpPR

Firstly I’d like to apologise to all the bloggers that attended BumpPRs 4th birthday party yesterday. I promise I’m not a complete social recluse – well only half. I am suffering from a cold which is why I tried to keep myself separate from all the other bloggers. I am quite shy in general especially as this was only my …

Here’s some of our holiday highlights: Our accommodation All that fresh air has wore them both out Trip to Longleat Safari Rainy stormy weather Cheddar …

New Wine – Day 7 The Last Day

Day 7 – 02/08/13 Last night my OH and I enjoyed a little alcohol… Or in my OHs case half a bottle of whiskey to himself. It was really great to see him fully enjoying himself and being relaxed. I know he’s found this week tough, being the minority in a camp full of Christians. We woke up relatively late …

New Wine – Day 6

Day 6 – 01/08/13 Last nights worship was really odd. I believe in God… I do. But I found it really uncomfortable being around a lot of people that were screaming, shaking and shouting. I found it scary. But the actual worship and talk was amazing! P1 fell over on her way back from the loo and cut her knee …

New Wine – Day 5

Day 5 – 31/07/13 Last night we learnt that P2 is a sensitive sausage. We went into the main Arena right at the end of worship ready to wait for the Blind Date Show evening entertainment. P2 loved the lights and music, she even had her arm held out reaching for the lights, but when the show began she wasn’t …

New Wine – Day 4

Day 4 – 30/07/13 Today has been a really lazy day. We woke up quite late, got up leisurely and plodded about the camp. Today was also wash day for my cloth nappies. I was in two minds whether to just give in and take disposables with me, that was what other cloth users had advised me to do, but …

New Wine – Day 3

Day 3 – 29/07/13 I don’t think I’ve ever heard a child cry so much! There’s a child, of unknown age as I haven’t seen it, that seems to constantly cry! The first night people in our camp were complaining, then yesterday evening I could hear what they meant. The poor child cried for literally a whole hour, maybe more, …

New Wine – Day 2

Day 2 – 28/07/13 My OH and I fell asleep really early, and although it was obviously interrupted for me by P2 nuzzling for boobie, we had a pretty decent first night. We enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast courtesy of my Mum and spent the morning relaxing in the outdoors with a mixture of sun and wind. P1 went to …
