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 […]

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. […]

LEgo Tetris

LEGO Tetris

We love LEGO and are always looking for fun ways to use it. We’ve made a plant growth model with LEGO and modelled the changing seasons over on Science Sparks and today have a fun LEGO Tetris game to share. We created Tetris shaped LEGO pieces and then took it in turns to place the pieces.   […]

Staying safe in the sun with Boots Soltan

If I am honest I am not particularly fond of the sun. 9 years ago I had a basal cell carcinoma removed from my forehead, I had a 6 week old baby and was pretty terrified, especially after a number of consultants expressed complete shock that I had a BCC at the tender age of […]

Have our family holiday habits changed?

It’s quite interesting to think about how holidays have changed over the years, this great guest post gives a brief overview of how our holiday habits have changed recently. Since the early 20th Century, the family holiday has adapted and changed to suit the needs and lifestyles of the people of the time. Before then, […]

Growing up

When I first had children I think I thought they would be little forever, when you have a tiny baby in your arms, even the thought of them starting school seems like a lifetime away, then when I had my third child, I sort of expected her to be my baby forever, yet now she’s […]

Having #ShedLoadsOfFun with George at ASDA

Seven years ago we built our first playhouse for the children, since then that playhouse has been an invaluable storage unit as well as secret hideaway for various superheroes, princesses and  excitable children. Over the years it inevitably aged and replacing it was top of my summer improvement wish list for this year. When George at ASDA got […]

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 […]

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 […]
