Our First Experience Of Glamping At Chalke Valley Camping

This summer Hubby put a budget away so that we could go on some mini breaks. It was so exciting to have the chance to pick pretty much anywhere. Hubby randomly decided that Glamping would be a fun idea and found availability at Chalke Valley Camping in Salisbury and so we booked to stay for two nights. Unfortunately the journey …

Fun On The Beach At Bluewater

Last week we got the opportunity to head to our local ish shopping centre for a special preview launch. Bluewater have welcomed a fun new attraction for the summer holidays called The Beach.  I was so incredibly excited about our trip. We were the very first to walk through the gates and after a not-so-pleasant portable toilet experience, we began our …

A Surprise Trip To LEGOLAND Windsor

Surprises in our family either go down really well or really badly. P1 struggles with the unexpected sometimes but I decided to keep a little surprise to kick start our summer holidays. Hubby booked an Airbnb just up the road from LEGOLAND Windsor. Our family seems to have a theme park bug at the moment and we can’t get enough …

Going To Thorpe Park For The First Time

Each month we are lucky enough to get one weekend child free. When this first started back up again after a short break when my mum had her kidney transplant, we used our weekends to pretty much slob around and do nothing but binge on Netflix. Believe it or not, that can get quite boring after a while and so …

A Morning Picnic At Eynsford Ford

This week the UK has been hit with a heatwave. Offering us the most sunshine in one go than we have had in over one hundred years, apparently. It has been hitting the thirties for temperature and has pretty much been like living in a hot country. I love it! I am every inch of me a summer person and …

A Fun Free Activity This Summer

I have felt so much guilt in the leading up to this school holiday. P1 was offered another place in the holiday school. We always sign her up even though it is not compulsory. It benefits her hugely by receiving extra lessons, extra fun and chances to see her friends and even make new ones that she wouldn’t necessarily talk …

A Morning Stroll Around Haysden Country Park

Following a day of feeling numb and confused after England experiencing another terrorist attack, I felt like I needed to just get out. Which is slightly strange as I am worrying so much about crowded public spaces now. This week the weather is glorious. I’ve dusted off my summer shorts and crop tops even if it may only last a …

The Gruffalo River Ride At Chessington World Of Adventures

You may have noticed on certain packs of Cadbury Chocolate that Cadbury have teamed up with Merlin Entertainments to offer one free ticket for every full priced adult ticket purchased to over 20 top attractions. Personally Cadbury is my favourite chocolate brand so what better way to enjoy that than a family day out for a much cheaper cost. We got …

Going On A Muddy Puddle Walk

Just under two years ago we took our first ever steps into Paultons Park. They have a whole world dedicated to Peppa Pig and back then she was P2s idol. It’s now P3s turn to be obsessed with the pink pig and luckily we were invited back to help Save The Children on their latest campaign. It was so exciting! …

Our Easter Saturday At National Trust Bodiam Castle

For somebody who didn’t feel very Easter-y this year, we ended up doing quite a few Easter themed activities. Our Easter holidays were pretty much jam filled with different things for us to do and now we are back to school runs. I feel we need another holiday to recover from the Easter holidays if I’m honest. Our Easter weekend …

An Easter Egg Hunt At Marsh Farm

I have not really thought about Easter. Last year I was really excited about it all and I put together a basket of goodies for the girls to enjoy during their school holidays. We spent a weekend at my Grandad’s and had an amazing time at the Marsh Farm Easter event. This year, I haven’t really had much planned and I certainly …

Seeing Disney On Ice At The SSE Arena, Wembley

It feels like quite a long time ago that I ventured to The SSE Arena, Wembley for my first ever Disney On Ice. As a child I had ice skating lessons and grew a real passion for the sport until I fell pregnant and gave it up for safety reasons. I was really excited to be invited back there last …

Google Home UK Launch Party

Last week Hubby and I hopped on a train and headed to London. I get nervous for every blog event I attend but this one was on a whole new level of nerves. We were heading off for a dinner arranged with Google. I sensed it was going to be a big event as other bloggers announced their attendances and …

A Trip To Little Street Maidstone

I am always on the hunt for new ways to entertain the kids outside of our own home. When we received an invite to head along to the blogger preview of Little Street in Maidstone, I was pretty excited. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be like except the advertised “kid sized town” which instantly made …

A Country Walk At Lullingstone

I am so incredibly pleased that we have seen the back of winter now. Although saying that it still seems super freezing outside doesn’t it?! A week or so ago, we were graced with some sunshine and it finally felt bright and summery. (The photo above is courtesy of my aspiring four year old photographer – P2!) We decided to …
