Dinotropolis At Bluewater This Half Term

It is nearly half term and although they are a great time to rest and recuperate, I always find school holidays a little daunting. I question whether I’m doing enough to keep their bodies active and brains learning. So I am beginning to plan activities for my girls to keep them occupied. Bluewater is our local shopping centre. It is …

A Mum & Daughter Day At The Ideal Home Show Christmas 2018

Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year but weirdly this year has felt the least Christmassy. In fact the whole idea of it has been making me feel anxious and a little sick. Don’t get me wrong it is still my favourite time of the year – I adore the magic! Back in November I saw that …

Our First Pumpkin Patch Trip

I had absolutely no intentions to go to a pumpkin patch ever! We always buy our pumpkins from the supermarket around a week before Halloween. Then all the photos starting popping up on social media and I definitely had this urge to visit a pumpkin patch purely for the photos. That’s the blogger in me you see. I researched a …

Last weekend my little tribe took a road trip to London to celebrate the launch of the new Little Tikes STEM Jr range. I love reviewing things but one of my favourite things about this job is seeing my girls experiencing new things. We arrived at the V&A Museum of Childhood with plenty of time to spare. We’d actually been …

A Tudor Pageant At Dover Castle

We signed up to be members of the English Heritage over the Easter holidays whilst in the Isle Of Wight visiting Carisbrook Castle. Sadly …

I thought we’d start with our trip to Camber Sands Beach. …

Our Experience Of Monstrous Festival

On Sunday we attended our very first family friendly festival, Monstrous Festival. Following the festival social media was on fire with complaints about the festival. I’ve spent a good few days keeping my eye on it all, even responding to a few but sadly putting myself in the limelight of abuse. People judging my own opinions and whether they were …
