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 …

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 …

This was our first event day since before lockdown and it felt …

Rainy Day At Hobbledown Farm

Trust me when I tell you, we are a fair-weather family. Don’t get me wrong, we’ll take on the cold and snow, but when it comes to rain you’ll find us snuggled on the sofa watching movies and sipping on hot chocolate. Seeing the weather forecast for our planned day out to Hobbledown was rather devastating. We decided to pull …

Over the past few months, there has been a lot of adjusting going on. This new world is a strange one that we are navigating slowly as a global community.

Birthday Party At Jump In Trampoline Park Tonbridge

I’m still pinching myself that Eva is now seven years of age. It feels like yesterday that our chunky, cone-head baby arrived into the world. But it happened and each year we celebrate.  This year we had the pleasure of hosting a joint party at Jump In with Eva’s friend from school. Both girls were so excited about taking their …

We had been invited to Cineworld in Leicester Square for the UK Premiere of Dolittle last weekend and we had to dress up as animals. The invitation didn’t specify …

Robin Hood Pantomime at the Cliffs Pavilion 2019

As a child, my grandparents took me to see the pantomime every festive season at the Cliffs Pavilion. It was such a highlight for me growing up and I looked forward to it each year. We used to get there extra early, have drinks in the bar area and buy the program each year. I have a folder of them …
