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 …

Siblings 2020 – February

Firstly, it’s the 29th of February!! It’s a leap year woohoo. Anyway… I have felt like February has been a long month. The weather has been pretty rubbish and there’s been a half-term in the middle too. I mean, who’s idea was it to have a school holiday when the weather is yuck and nobody wants to spend any length …

Siblings 2020 – January

Welcome back to another year of the Siblings post. This project originated from Lucy at Dear Beautiful many years ago when blog linkys were a thing and I’m so grateful she started it. It’s a wonderful way to look back on each month. January is a long month. There’s lots of talk about it feeling a bit heavy on the …

Pirates Dinner Adventure & Couple Time At Volcano Bay #9

Hubby and I woke up early on our first morning in the new Two Bedroom Suite with Volcano Bay view at Cabana Bay. As a Universal Orlando Resort hotel guest, you are able to get entrance into the parks an hour before they open. It’s a really useful perk of being a hotel guest and I’d highly recommend staying on …

Dinotropolis At Bluewater This Half Term

It is nearly half term and although they are a great time to rest and recuperate, I always find school holidays a little daunting. I question whether I’m doing enough to keep their bodies active and brains learning. So I am beginning to plan activities for my girls to keep them occupied. Bluewater is our local shopping centre. It is …

Summer At Rare Breeds Centre Ashford

Do you have a list of local things you must visit again but then never get round to doing so? Well I feel like that with the Rare Breeds Centre. We last took a trip there about two years ago and we loved it, promising the girls we’d be back one day soon. As I said, that was two years …

Cooling Down In Eynsford Ford

Monday already feels like such a long time ago now. I’m already reminiscing about the sunshine seeing as we’ve had storms and heavy rain for a full day. But I will take you back to Bank Holiday Monday when the weather was gloriously hot and the sun was out. We wanted to do something with the girls but wasn’t really …

Picking Our Own Pearls At Isle Of Wight Pearl – IOW 2018

I can’t believe I’m still writing these posts over two weeks after our actual trip! Life has been crazy which hopefully I’ll get round to writing about soon. I sort of miss my personal blog posts. Finally the sun was shining, typically for our last full day on the island. There was blue skies over our caravan at The Orchards …

Carisbrooke Castle & JR Zone – IOW 2018

It was a rather windy and wet night at The Orchards Holiday Park. It definitely made getting ready for the day much harder than it would have if it was warm and bright. Breakfast was fed to the girls as usual – usual being three different breakfast options and then we headed out of the holiday park for another day …

Finding The Right Time To Book That Family Holiday

It can be tricky to balance the daily running of your home and plan a family break at the same time. Between school, available dates, and the general buzz of a busy household, finding the time to search for the best prices on offer can often seem like a little dose of extra hassle that you just don’t have time …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

Reasons To Consider Taking Young Children On A Family Ski Holiday

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing your child squeal with delight. It’s even more exciting when the words that follow the squeal is “It’s snowing!”. I love snow, it’s about the only good thing about feeling frozen to my bones for months on end. There’s something just magical about seeing the white flakes dropping from the sky, settling and …

Juggling A Special Needs Child With A Sibling At School Too

I actually drafted the title of this post a good few weeks ago, just after I had to juggle the need to be in two places at once for two different children of mine. But actually even more has happened since then. Since having two children in primary school and one in nursery, I have been really struggling to organise …

Getting Crafty With A Willow & Wild Box

A few days ago my girls were really lucky to receive three Willow & Wild Box‘s in the post, each personalised with their names. I was really shocked to find that a gardening subscription box could fit through the letter box but they did! One of our focuses for 2018 is to get our garden usable and family friendly, so …
