More National Trust fun

I have wanted to try the ball run at Basildon Park for the last two years and we’ve somehow never managed the trip, so this year I was determined to make the effort to get there. It was worth the wait. Basildon Park is just beautiful. It seemed quite compact, which with my sometimes reluctant walkers […]

We’ve just returned from an amazing week at the beautiful Levante Beach Resort with Mark Warner, it was our third holiday there and each time it gets better and better. The children seem to get more and more out of our time there each time we visit. I’ll be writing a full post soon, but just […]

KidZania - Paramedic

Win a trip to KidZania London

Did you know KidZania is celebrating it’s first birthday? KidZania is a city for 4-14 year olds with more than 60 real life, ever changing, role play adventures. My little girls adore role play and dressing up, so I knew they would have a brilliant day at KidZania. I was less sure how my 9 […]

Making life in the kitchen easier

As a family we spend a lot of time in our kitchen, cooking, chatting and playing games. It’s the hub of the house, the first place we’re all together in the morning, the place where we celebrate special occasions or just relax over a drink or two with extended family and friends, and the place […]

Archery at Moors Valley

Moors Valley Country Park and Forest is located on the Dorset/Hampshire boarder. It’s the most amazing place for a great family day out with miles of tracks through forest, health and woodland, perfect for exploring on foot or by bike. We’ve visited several times now, and would go more if we weren’t so far away. We were […]

Velociraptor Paultons Park

The Lost Kingdom at Paultons Park

As a family we have spent many, many happy days at Paultons Park over the years. I love that it’s so family friendly with great rides for even very small children. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I heard about the Lost Kingdom, but knowing how impressive Peppa Pig World is I had  high […]

RYA Course Mark Warner

Great things to do at Mark Warner’s Levante Beach Resort

We’ve been lucky enough to holiday at the beautiful Mark Warner Levante Beach Resort three times now, and I can honestly say they have been the best family holidays we have ever had. The impeccable childcare means the kids are happy, make new friends, swim, windsurf, sail and generally have the time of their life, […]

Child skiing

Family Skiing with Madame Vacances

I am not the sort of person who enjoys the travel part of travelling. I love seeing new places, I love taking the children to different parts of the world and all the opportunities and excitement that brings, but I could most definitely live without the actual travel part. I was quite nervous about the journey to […]

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 […]
