Busy, busy, busy

It’s been a funny couple of weeks, I’m sort of struggling to get my head around the fact it’s nearly the end of the school year and my middle child will be off to Junior school and my baby going into Year 2. Time is a funny thing isn’t it? In some ways September seems […]

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 […]

Top tips for getting kids to drink more

I have three very active children, none of whom seem to drink very much on a day to day basis. My younger two take a bottle of water to school each day, but it very rarely comes home empty while my eldest insists on drinking from water fountain at school, but I’m not convinced he […]

Num Noms

Num Noms

Num Noms are cute, squishy collectable mix and match toys. Nums are scented and Noms are motorized and scented too! My little girls love stacking the Nums on top of the Noms ( did you know you can  make over 1,000 sweet scented combinations? ) Ranges available: Num Nom Mystery Blinds Pots includes a Num and a surprise […]

Day Trips

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
