Our Easter Saturday At National Trust Bodiam Castle

For somebody who didn’t feel very Easter-y this year, we ended up doing quite a few Easter themed activities. Our Easter holidays were pretty much jam filled with different things for us to do and now we are back to school runs. I feel we need another holiday to recover from the Easter holidays if I’m honest. Our Easter weekend …

An Easter Egg Hunt At Marsh Farm

I have not really thought about Easter. Last year I was really excited about it all and I put together a basket of goodies for the girls to enjoy during their school holidays. We spent a weekend at my Grandad’s and had an amazing time at the Marsh Farm Easter event. This year, I haven’t really had much planned and I certainly …

Seeing Disney On Ice At The SSE Arena, Wembley

It feels like quite a long time ago that I ventured to The SSE Arena, Wembley for my first ever Disney On Ice. As a child I had ice skating lessons and grew a real passion for the sport until I fell pregnant and gave it up for safety reasons. I was really excited to be invited back there last …

Google Home UK Launch Party

Last week Hubby and I hopped on a train and headed to London. I get nervous for every blog event I attend but this one was on a whole new level of nerves. We were heading off for a dinner arranged with Google. I sensed it was going to be a big event as other bloggers announced their attendances and …

A Trip To Little Street Maidstone

I am always on the hunt for new ways to entertain the kids outside of our own home. When we received an invite to head along to the blogger preview of Little Street in Maidstone, I was pretty excited. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be like except the advertised “kid sized town” which instantly made …

A Country Walk At Lullingstone

I am so incredibly pleased that we have seen the back of winter now. Although saying that it still seems super freezing outside doesn’t it?! A week or so ago, we were graced with some sunshine and it finally felt bright and summery. (The photo above is courtesy of my aspiring four year old photographer – P2!) We decided to …

Sykes Cottages Review – Redwood Broadstairs

We have had some amazing opportunities to travel around England. As a family we always pick to travel west of where we live as I like to think we are exploring the country we live in. Recently we decided to change our habit and Sykes Cottages took us along the east coast of Kent to a beautiful cottage in Broadstairs …

The Belfry Hotel & Resort Review

For our second night in Birmingham and following our visit to Cadbury World, we headed further North to Sutton Coldfield. The Belfry Hotel & Resort is award winning and set in over 500 acres of countryside. I was pretty excited about this hotel visit as my Grandad had told me that he had stayed there over 40 years ago! As we entered …

A Family Trip To Cadbury World 2017

It’s been quite a few years since my first ever visit to Cadbury World. I remember having an amazing time and had only been back once again when P1 was very young. Over the past five years I have tried to convince Hubby to let us go there as a family and finally we went. We arrived about half an …

Win A Family Ticket To Marsh Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

I didn’t realise my love for Easter until we went to Marsh Farm last year for their Easter Egg Hunt. I had decided to stay with my Grandad for the weekend without Hubby and wanted to find somewhere to go. Marsh Farm was a childhood place for me to visit and I really wanted my girls to experience the farm …

Go Ape Tree Top Junior Adventure – When Things Don’t Go To Plan

My middle daughter who has just turned four is a little dare devil. We realised this during a trip to Paultons Park last year. She wanted to go on all of the rides and she did, including the rather scary big ones more than once. She was fearless. Then whilst at Universal Orlando Resort P2 begged us to go on …

Harry Potter Studio Tour London

When we were in Orlando we got to visit The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter. It meant so,etching to Hubby and me but for the girls, they had absolutely no clue. P1 asked questions but I’d always felt she was a little young for the Harry Potter films. Then a few months later she was invited to a Harry Potter …

Father Christmas Experience At Marsh Farm Animal Adventure Park

Every year since I was a little kid I can remember heading off to the garden centre to visit Santa with my Grandparents. It was a Chrismas tradition that I absolutely loved. There is an 8 year gap between my little brother and me so I still got to see Santa up until I had my first daughter. Then the …

Part 5 – Universal Orlando Resort – The Last Day

Waking up on our last day in the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel felt strange. Our time in Orlando seemed to have whizzed by in a busy blur full of happy memories and laughing that we just didn’t want to go home. I felt more aware of our surroundings and found myself taking it it, taking mental pictures as I longed …
