Our Breakfast Surprise with Nestlé

I mentioned last week that Nestlé very kindly organised us a very special breakfast surprise to celebrate Breakfast Week and I can finally tell you more about our exciting morning. I’m not a very patient person so when this beautiful hamper arrived one Friday with a note saying DO NOT to open until Sunday it took […]

First week back

As it turns out a term time week is no calmer than the holidays. I have relished the chance to get on with bits of work this week and managed to concentrate on one thing for more than 5 minutes without a little voice asking for something, but after school has been pretty crazy busy. […]

Playmobil Easter Egg

As part of our role as Playmobil Playologists we are sent seasonal products through the year to review. Easter is always a big favourite of mine as I love the idea of giving Playmobil as an alternative to a chocolate egg and priced at £6.99 these eggs are great value, I love that all the […]

Ribble Boots from Hotter Shoes

Taking three children to school everyday means I am outside in all weather. Warm, cosy and comfortable boots are a staple part of my wardrobe and usually worn between October and March, so a good portion of the year. My much loved Winter boots finally gave up last year and as I was reluctant to spend […]

Overheard at Christmas

I spotted this post in my drafts earlier today and couldn’t resist posting even though we’re well past Christmas now. Back when we were in the midst of Christmas plays and mad present wrapping little Sydney asked. Was Santa alive when Jesus was born? As we sort of celebrate Jesus’s birthday with Santa I imagine […]

Stick Man Trail

Stick Man Trail at Alice Holt

We were very excited about trying the Stick Man trail at Alice Holt Forestry Commission site last weekend. Stick Man is one of my most favourite books and so we couldn’t wait to help  Stick Man find his way back to his family tree and be reunited with his Stick Lady Love, and his Stick children […]

Fun at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to Elephantastic at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, a special weekend celebrating all things elephants. Unfortunately I didn’t check times of the special events, so we missed some of the talks and demonstrations, but it was still a fantastic day out and brilliant experience for the children. Visitors were invited […]

The 1 mile obstacle course is designed for 7-12 year olds with a minimum height of 1.1m. The whole event was brilliantly organised, we arrived at […]

We’ve visited Moors Valley Country Park several times over the last few years and I’m always completely blown away by how amazing it is and that you only pay for parking, Moors Valley is hands down the best and most reasonably priced day out we’ve had all Summer. We paid just £8 for the whole […]

The Sands hotel Maze

Sands Resort Hotel and Spa

People often ask me what it’s like having three children and how it’s different to two, while I obviously love my crazy busy life, three children does bring some extra ( minor ) difficulties. We needed a much bigger car for example and can no longer just book a standard hotel room which means I […]

Getting back on the snow – skiing with kids

Last Friday, Crystal Ski kindly invited us for a morning of skiing and snowboarding at The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead, if I’m honest I’ve been a bit scared of getting my snowboard boots back on after NINE years, and was more than a little concerned I wouldn’t even be able to stay upright, but […]

Forest Holidays – Blackwood Forest

As a family we are never happier than when out in the forest for the day, so I knew Forest Holidays would be the perfect break for us. Forest Holidays in Blackwood Forest, Hampshire is a beautiful location set in 270 hectares of Beech Forest. There are 60 cabins onsite, but it doesn’t crowded as they are very spread […]

Luckily my social media […]
