Top Tips For Swimming As A Family

Swimming is one of the skills that I see as super important for every child to learn. With Freya, my eldest, I was taking part in mother and baby lessons as soon as we could but with the other two learning to swim was much more of a family activity. Getting active on a regular basis can add years to …

Little Tikes STEM Jr Launch!

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

I feel so ashamed that I’m only just writing about our Dover Castle trip. It feels like this happened such a long time ago. I’m definitely playing a huge catch up over here on my blog. We signed up to be members of the English Heritage over the Easter holidays whilst in the Isle Of Wight visiting Carisbrook Castle. Sadly …

Spontaneous Road Trip To Camber Sands Beach

I have really struggled to find the time to edit photos and write about our days out this summer, so I can only apologise that even though it’s back to school and Autumn is definitely round the corner I am uploading lots of summery posts from the school holidays. I thought we’d start with our trip to Camber Sands Beach. …

Family holidays should be fun times where you and your loved ones can enjoy spending some quality time together. Yet sometimes getting the family ready for a trip and making sure everyone enjoys themselves while they are there can be hard work, and you might feel like you need a holiday to recover from your holiday!

Strawberry Picking & Father’s Day

We are definitely not a family that makes a big deal of things like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. For us, it’s just like any other day with chores and mouths to feed. But for some reason this Father’s Day was so much better than previous ones. Two of the girls had made bits for Hubby at school. …

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 …

Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone Review

I completely appreciate that we’ve just come out of a pretty frozen spell of snowy weather. That it’s still floating around the 5-8degree mark most days. On Friday temperatures hit a whopping 12degrees and there wasn’t a chance in hell that I’d not take full advantage of the sunshine and put together our new Little Tikes Fun Zone Drop Zone …

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 …

#MakeTracks With A Family & Friends Railcard This Autumn

I pop on a train quite frequently for blog related shindigs but it’s actually quite rare for us to go with the kids or as a family. A few months ago I took P2 by herself to London and she had such a brilliant adventure that it made me want to experience train adventures more often.  We was asked by …

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer. We had decided to leave P3 with my MiL because she had spent the majority of the previous two weeks being super grumpy and we had all been craving some peace. …

Family Travel Tips

Most parents think that the idea of stepping onto a plane full of people hoping to get a nap in before their holidays commence is close to a nightmare. Travel sickness, boredom and tired toddlers can be a recipe for disaster. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. With some careful planning and preparation, travelling with little ones can …

It’s Strawberry Picking Season Again

The first time I went strawberry picking was last year and once we’d been, we were there nearly every week during strawberry season. We went to Open Farm Sunday and I’ve sort of got a bug for the whole country living, farming thing. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been binge watching Heartland which is all about the country way …
