Windy First Day On The Isle of Wight

It’s become a little bit of a tradition for our family to visit the Isle Of Wight each year. Whether that’s with our tribe, with my in-laws, or even the extended-in-laws too. It’s a place of blissful memories and quite rapidly became our top travel destination since 2016! Although Orlando would be a close contender if it wasn’t so expensive and …

Greek Inspired Cocktail Night With Jet2holidays

Recently, I was kindly invited to a virtual cocktail-making evening with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays and Mixology Events. The evening was Greek-themed and a great way of getting us in the mood for travel. I’m actually not a drinker and I’m not sure I’ve ever tasted a cocktail before and with professionalism in mind, I opted to take part in the …

Prince Of Egypt Musical

A few weeks ago we braved an adventure to the city to attend The Prince of Egypt musical at the Dominion Theatre. I struggled to remember when we last went to the theatre, especially a London theatre, and eventually figured out that it was back in 2015 for the Peppa Pig Tour… Not quite a West End performance. This was …

All About Dogs Show & Mum’s First Birthday In Heaven

Since my Mum’s death, I have watched and researched lots of things about bereavement to equip myself with all stages of grief. I remember watching a video that said “You always expect first milestones after a loved one’s death to be hard. But actually, you end up surrounded by people that care, and your heart protects you on those days. …

Marsh Farm Easter Eggtravaganza 2021

This weekend (24-25th April 2021) is the last weekend of the sold-out Easter Eggstravaganza at Marsh Farm, and we had the pleasure of taking our first post-lockdown (kinda) day out last week to experience it. As you may know, we are no strangers to Marsh Farm. I’ve said this a good few times now, but the animal adventure park holds …

Santa Specials At The Isle of Wight Steam Railway

One of the amazing attractions that invited us to review their Christmas experiences this year was the Isle Of Wight Steam Railway. Of course with restrictions, we had concerns that this wouldn’t be able to take place but thankfully travel for work was allowed and the IOW Steam Railway was able to be open. We have been to the railway …

Premier Inn Has Interconnecting Rooms!

One of our favourite travel destinations on this planet is the Isle Of Wight. It has so much to offer a family and for us in particular, it is less than 3 hours from door to stepping foot on the island. We have tried to spend once every year on the island for many years now and it’ll definitely be …

Godshill Model Village – Isle of Wight 2020 – Day 3

The weather was absolutely incredible for our Isle Of Wight holiday. The early morning blessed us with over 20-degree heat, my perfect weather type so I woke up each morning feeling excited for a day of fun. For our third day on the island, we’d booked tickets to visit the Godshill Model Village. It’s a little attraction we have visited …

St Helen’s Duver – Isle of Wight 2020 – day 2

I woke up really early on the first morning on the Isle Of Wight. There’s something about holidays that get me motivated for adventures and a new routine. I think I was the only grown-up awake. Our plans for our entire holiday was to take each day as it came. Make sure we did lots of outside adventures and kept …

It feels a bit bittersweet to be writing about our day out that happened just last week when we have a bit of uncertainty ahead of us. One of the first places we visited after the first lockdown was Godstone Farm and we excitedly got to head back to enjoy their Halloween fun this half term. It was a wet …

We Went Pumpkin Picking

One of my favourite things about the autumn season is the pumpkins. For a few years now, I have made it a tradition to visit a local pumpkin patch. Sadly, this year our very local one has had to close super early and I don’t think we are going to be able to get there this half term. I’m extremely …

It stems from my memories there growing up although the farm has most certainly changed significantly since my childhood visits. We had been invited back for their Halloween Festival. This was our first event day since before lockdown and it felt …

Travelling To The Isle Of Wight 2020 – Day 1

We had booked a trip to the Isle Of Wight last year. It was going to be a family getaway with Hubby’s Mum, her partner, his brother and his grandparents. Then the pandemic set in and our hopes to have a family getaway started to sink away. The initial and main lockdown in the UK felt long and tiresome. We …
