Ultimate List Of Autumn Activities For Kids

It’s that time of year again… where I’m crying over the fact that summer has gone and cold, rainy weather is on its way. However, as much as I don’t like the cooler British weather, I do like lots of the things we get up to in the autumn months. I guess it’s because if you wrap up warm it’s still not too cold, and a bright sunny autumn day >>

Windsor Castle – A Great Day Out But NOT In The Summer!

  • July 23, 2018
Windsor Castle

Last weekend we went to Windsor Castle as an early birthday treat for my niece. We hadn’t been before and were looking forward to doing a bit of sightseeing and one of the Queen’s homes. I’ve recently written a few posts about things you can do in the summer holidays with kids (London, beaches, bowling) and I was hoping to do a similar recommendation in my review of Windsor Castle >>

How Working Mums Survive School Holidays

  • May 15, 2018

I’ve previously shared my thoughts about the school holidays as a working mum, and whilst it’s lovely to have some time off with your kids, it’s not that easy when you work. I’ve been through this several times now and I know first hand that school holidays require a hell of a lot of planning, organising and begging for favours from friends and family. In a nutshell school holidays can >>

Hands up who else is bored of the rain? Every weekend this year seems to have been wet and miserable and the weather forecast for the next week or so doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. How on earth do you do keep kids entertained for a whole weekend when you can’t go out for walks or to the park? So until Spring arrives with some sunshine, I’ve made >>

How To Keep Kids Amused When You Go For Lunch

  • August 18, 2016

When we’re out for lunch with Little H a lot of people comment on how well behaved she is. I personally think half of it is down to pure luck. The rest is down to her having no siblings to fight with and us taking a backpack full of child entertainment with us. Oh and quite a bit of bribery.

Toucan will either send you a small box every fortnight (£4.93) or a larger box every month (from £12.90). Each box contains >>

Christmassy Fun!

  • December 23, 2015

One of the best things about having kids is that you get to do all of the things you most enjoyed from your childhood. Christmas is definitely one of those times! I don’t really feel very Christmassy until around the middle of December, but when you have kids Christmas starts as soon as that first advent calendar window is opened whether you like it or not!
