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. …

There are hundreds of different subscription boxes now on the market, anything from crafts and baking, to gardening and reading. There will definitely be something for everyone out there. But it’s easy to get a bit overwhelmed with the choices available. We’ve been lucky enough to explore some over the years and most recently Eva was sent the Tales By …

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 …

Godstone Farm At Halloween

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 …

Halloween Festival At Marsh Farm

As I’m sure you are all very aware, we love a day out at Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park. 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 …

An Afternoon At Monkey Haven Isle Of Wight

Some of you may be aware that during the school summer holidays we headed for the Isle Of Wight on a little family holiday. I have lots of photos and memories that I’d love to share when I eventually get round to sorting them all out. Check out my YouTube playlist as our holiday videos are going live during September. …

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 …
