Great Days Out In Hertfordshire

Hubby and I really try to keep our little tribe entertained during the holidays and weekends. We’ve spent a lot of time exploring our home county of Kent, but sometimes it’s nice to venture further afield. After taking a few trips to Hertfordshire, we realised just how many awesome activities there are for children there. Here’s a round-up of my …

BBC Countryfile Live 2018 – Our Photo Diary

I’m still in a sort of bubbly come down from attending BBC Countryfile Live at the beginning of August. The atmosphere and buzz was just incredible. We spent Thursday and Friday in the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace in Oxford. It was our first experience of a proper festival. I’m going to be honest and say that I don’t think …

Dinosaurs In The Wild Summer 2018

Back in February I sent my girls with their Grandparents to the VIP Launch of Dinosaurs In The Wild. They had a brilliant time and even went again the following day.

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Reflecting

We’ve been child free this weekend. It’s felt like quite a while since we had some proper child free time as the past few times has been interupted by chickenpox, a sleepover and being just so busy! The lead up to the summer holidays has already been so incredibly manic. There’s been school trips, days out and so many after …

Cooling Down In Eynsford Ford

Monday already feels like such a long time ago now. I’m already reminiscing about the sunshine seeing as we’ve had storms and heavy rain for a full day. But I will take you back to Bank Holiday Monday when the weather was gloriously hot and the sun was out. We wanted to do something with the girls but wasn’t really …

The journey was relatively smooth sailing, the girls …

When Will Winter & Spring Finish Their Arguing?

Seriously Spring time, grow some balls and kick this Winter away sooner rather than later. So in case you are not living in the UK, we are currently living in an icy, snowy, winter wonderland yet again. It’s hard to believe that the photos in this blog post were taken on Friday. On Friday, I found myself outside without my …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – A Snowy Week

I’m meant to share one, or two photos for My Sunday Photo each week but I just couldn’t pick from all of the lovely memories we’ve captured this week. What a week we have had across the UK! I posted about the snow day we had in Kent on Tuesday. That was the main dumping of snow that we had …

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 …

A Short Break in Hog Deer Creek At Port Lympne Reserve

I was really excited to get an invite to stay at Port Lympne Reserve. Despite living in Kent for nearly four years, being just around the corner to the reserve, we have never been. It’s one of the things I’ve had on my list of must dos. So getting the invite to not only visit but to stay too, was …

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 …

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 …
