Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Three

In the morning of our third day the farmer at Kempshill Farm popped by to see if we wanted to watch the cows be fed. Of course the kids were really excited so we headed round the barns. He was really informative about the cows meat and explained how he operates and what types of meat we should actually be …

A Visit To Howletts Wild Animal Park

Two weeks ago we celebrated a big birthday for my MiL. Seeing as hubby’s grandparents were down ready for the big family holiday, it was decided that we were all going to go to Howletts Wild Animal Park.  Funny enough it was one of the places of my list of to dos since we’ve moved to Kent. The girls were …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Two

Despite having a long first day on the Isle Of Wight P2 still woke in the night. I hoped that the black out blind and being at the other end of the barn would help her sleep. It did a little bit on our first night as she only woke at 5 am which was much better than usual. However, …

A Nursery Trip To Hastings

In the last few weeks I’ve been faced with a dilemma. Ultimately it felt like I was picking my favourite child because both P1 and P2 had school/nursery trips on the exact same day.  Originally my heart was set to go with P1 because in all the seven years of parenting I’ve had, I have never been on a school …

A Dinosaur Adventure At The Dinosaur Park Tenby

It was an early checkout at Bluestone last week and although you can stay on site until 3pm to enjoy all the facilities, we decided to make a move and Hubby researched some local things to do with the kids. The Dinosaur Park Tenby was just a 20 minute drive away and happened to be on our way home. My girls are …

Open Farm Sunday 2016

I’ve started to get a bit stuck for ideas when it comes to the weekends when we just have P3. I feel like we’ve exhausted the park and soft play is always packed at weekends. She’s not quite old enough for big trips to the local castles either. I posted on social media that we were struggling for an idea …

ASDA Little Angels Spa Day At The Dorchester Hotel

I have longed for a spa break for my entire adult life. I have never been to a spa nor have I ever experienced a professional massage of any sort. So when a pretty exciting email found its way into my inbox I rushed to respond. A spa experience at the Dorchester Hotel with ASDA Little Angels. How could a girl refuse …

Carlyon Bay Beach Visit

It’s been a long time since I went to the beach. It used to be quite easy to get to our local one back in Essex and there was plenty to do like arcades and even a little theme park. It was a relatively nice place to visit but I never actually did very often. I’ve seen so many beautiful …

A Family Day Out At The Eden Project

When we first checked the weather forecast for our little trip to Cornwall, it didn’t look great, but actually it’s been pretty beautiful. It wasn’t exactly warm but it was stunningly sunny which makes a lot of difference. So of course you can’t go to Cornwall without visiting the Eden Project or at least that’s what I’ve been told as …

A Visit To Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park

It has already been two weeks since we had a two night sleepover with my Grandad. Time is just flying past and I’ve actually had all the photos ready in the post since the day after we visited Marsh Farm. Marsh Farm holds so many memories for me. School trips and visits with my Grandparents, my Mum and my friends. …

Leap Day 2016 – Fresh Air At Coolings Nature Trail

Every four years we gain a day. A leap year. This year marks our youngest daughter turning 17 months. Social media was filled with posts about making the most out of the extra day but I personally was ready to spend my day being a slob. Then the guilt came over me and we decided to head to the Nature …

Sow & Grow with Innocent Drinks

We had such a lovely time at Fruit Towers back in August that when Innocent invited us along again we just couldn’t say no. All five of us headed into London on Tuesday to have some lunch at the headquarters of where my girls favourite drinks are thought of. I The journey was very straight forward but rather stressful with …

Bedgebury Pinetum Stick Man Trail Adventure

I have been hibernating so far this winter. Spending most of my days in my joggers or pjs bottoms and doing my best to avoid unnecessary trips outside. Things are back to normal routines now and we are trying to do more things at the weekends this year. This Sunday we stepped completely out of our comfort zones and decided …
