Last month we travelled by sea to do a theme park marathon across the UK for our summer holiday. We spent four nights in Bluestone and ventured out twice, one of those days we stopped by The Dinosaur Park in Tenby. A dream for any dinosaur mad family, like ourselves. The boy lives and breathes dinosaurs and we fed his addiction this summer with a trip The Dinosaur Park, Paradise Wildlife Park and Paulton Park. (more…)

Top 21 Useful Tips For Travelling With Kids

top tips for travelling wiht kids

For some, the idea of travelling with kids can be overwhelming but it’s not as scary as you might think. Don’t let the fear of the unknown hold you back. Get out with the kids, explore, be adventurous – make the most of the summers with them, even if that means a staycation and camping in a field somewhere.

What Age Is The Right Age To Start School?

What Age Is The Right Age To Start School - A Collaboration With M&S

When I look back at the Big Kid starting school I feel like I was in a hurry for her to grow up – I know seems weird doesn’t it?

Pick Your Battles

I’m not long in this parenting game but it’s definitely thought me a thing or two in these short few years. You’ll never piss in peace. You’ll never eat a whole meal by yourself. Someone is always hungry. An ass will always need wiping. And you will find yourself being the parent you said you never wanted to be. (more…)

Life Lately (or the past three months)

Remember when I said I’d blog more often, I lied. Yeah, I’ve written about days out and stuff but actual blog posts are pretty non-existent at the moment. It’s just hectic, I don’t know my arse from my elbow most days. It’s got to the point were the Big Kid has stopped asking to have friends over ’cause I’ve got a pile of washing stacked up behind the bedroom door that’s almost as tall as herself. (more…)
