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 …

Easter Hunt At Monkey Haven – IOW 2018

Following on from a busy day at Tapnell Farm, I expected to have a nice peaceful nights sleep but it sadly wasn’t. Both P2 and P3 were very unsettled from about 3am onwards. The Easter Bunny didn’t have a chance to bring his treats to the girls so I cracked on with the breakfast. When the girls went back to …

Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – IOW 2018

We woke pretty early after a full first night of sleep at The Orchards Holiday Park. The birds were singing and the sun rose over the countryside so beautifully. I took the time to cook porridge as requested by P2 and whilst Hubby had a snooze I began to edit the first vlog. Easter Fun At Tapnell Farm Park – …

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 …

Family Day Out To Chessington In Pictures

I have wrote about adventures to Chessington World Of Adventures twice before; our first experience was of their Howl-oween event three years ago now, and the second time was last year for the opening of the new Gruffalo River Ride which had replaced the much loved Bubbleworks. So for this post about our recent trip to Chessington I thought I …

It can be tricky to balance the daily running of your home and plan a family break at the same time.

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 …

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 …

Reasons To Consider Taking Young Children On A Family Ski Holiday

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing your child squeal with delight. It’s even more exciting when the words that follow the squeal is “It’s snowing!”. I love snow, it’s about the only good thing about feeling frozen to my bones for months on end. There’s something just magical about seeing the white flakes dropping from the sky, settling and …

A Chilly Winters Walk

One of my goals this year is to document my personal life better than I did last year. I want to document every little moment. I’m not entirely sure if it will always be a diary style post, maybe just pictures or a mixture of the two but it’s important to me to go back to the very beginning and …
