Visiting Ightham Mote – National Trust

We were recently gifted a whole years National Trust membership from a family member. For a long time we have toyed with the idea but never felt like we could warrant the need for membership as we don’t really go to national trust places. However, I realised that we don’t go purely because without a membership, visiting our local National …

A Local Dog Show & Weekend Vlog

I just can’t believe how lucky we have been with the weather this summer. It’s allowed us to create so many memories as a family and we’ve visited places we’ve never been to before. Last Sunday the sun was shining brightly once again and the heat was incredible. We decided to head to the dog show at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens. …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Eight

This is the last of our Isle Of Wight holiday posts, which I’m sure you are quite relieved about. There’s a link below so you can find all of them in one place if you fancied a recap and also a link with the IOW video playlist. I had tried to extend our trip by changing the time of our …

An Afternoon At Riverhill Himalayan Gardens

Two weekends ago P1 headed off to Essex to spend what originally was three nights with my Mum. They were taking P1 to Buckingham Palace on a special coach trip with my Grandad and my little Brother. The sleepovers kept getting extended and in the end she was away from Thursday to Tuesday. She had a brilliant time which I …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Seven

A mixture of exhaustion, short tempered children, a bit of sun burn on Hubby’s back and the end of holiday blues, meant that Hubby and I weren’t really feeling our last full day on the Isle of Wight. We attempted to put on a brave face and headed to The Needles.  I had no idea what to expect from the …

Going On A Sleep Retreat & Unboxing A Gift From DryNites

I was invited to a sleep retreat with DryNites as part of our ambassadorship, whilst there I learnt that getting a good night sleep is actually so much more than just putting them to bed in the evening. I had been super excited in the lead up to the sleep retreat. It was going to be one full 24 hours for just …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Six

I think by the sixth day, heading towards the end of our week, everyone was getting rather emotional and tired. The girls were becoming a little bit difficult but thankfully we had a new experience for the girls to enjoy, a Steam Railway. To be honest I don’t really know much about the Isle Of Wight and it’s history so …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Five

After a pretty hectic day at Blackgang Chine, I was as exhausted. The girls were incredibly emotional and we all just needed a bit of a down day. A day to recooperate and rest. It was a brilliant day for some beach fun! So we packed up the car and headed with hubby’s MiL and Nan to St Helen’s beach. …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Four

Everybody had been going on about visiting Blackgang Chine but I wasn’t entirely sure what it was. We’d arranged to go with my MiL on our fourth day and we headed off with me doing zero research beforehand. Which is very unlike me. Now that I’ve been I can tell you that Blackgang Chine is most definitely suited for children of …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Three

In the morning of our third day the farmer at Kempshill Farm popped by to see if we wanted to watch the cows be fed. Of course the kids were really excited so we headed round the barns. He was really informative about the cows meat and explained how he operates and what types of meat we should actually be …

A Visit To Howletts Wild Animal Park

Two weeks ago we celebrated a big birthday for my MiL. Seeing as hubby’s grandparents were down ready for the big family holiday, it was decided that we were all going to go to Howletts Wild Animal Park.  Funny enough it was one of the places of my list of to dos since we’ve moved to Kent. The girls were …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Two

Despite having a long first day on the Isle Of Wight P2 still woke in the night. I hoped that the black out blind and being at the other end of the barn would help her sleep. It did a little bit on our first night as she only woke at 5 am which was much better than usual. However, …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day One

Last week we spent a full seven days on the Isle of Wight with nearly all of my MiLs side (nearly 20 of us) celebrating my MiLs big birthday. I will be posting several posts about our holiday over the next few days or maybe weeks as we have been getting up to so many things in the past week …

My Experience Of #BML16

At 7:30am last week I was stood with Hubby at the train station after leaving our smallest baby in the car with my MiL. It was the first time we’d ever left her overnight before so both of us were pretty nervous. In fact I felt quite sick and had barely eaten from nerves but also excitement because we were …

A Dinosaur Adventure At The Dinosaur Park Tenby

It was an early checkout at Bluestone last week and although you can stay on site until 3pm to enjoy all the facilities, we decided to make a move and Hubby researched some local things to do with the kids. The Dinosaur Park Tenby was just a 20 minute drive away and happened to be on our way home. My girls are …
