Have a Roald Dahl Day

Roald Dahl For Everyone Back in the day, when giving croggies and playing kerbie had you exhausted by 8 o’clock, the ultimate wind-down session was a few chapters of the latest Roald Dahl book, in bed with a mam that collected accents for a hobby. The Twits had you thinking up tricks to play on…

Family Friendly Mallorca

Best Mallorca Resorts For Families… I’m not the kind of person who wants to be trapped in a hotel, however nice, for a whole week, on a sun-lounger whilst the kids play in the pool or sea. And equally, I’d probably prefer a trip to Beirut over staying in a resort consisting solely of high…

Kids said “That was the best walk ever!” – LONDON

¬† Walking With Kids – What!?! Can it really be classed as a walk when it’s with the kids? When every five seconds you’re stopping to let them catch up because they’re dragging their feet, or you’re biting your tongue because they’re complaining their legs are aching and you’re not even out of the car…

Wild About Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire National Park “I could murder a beer!” Well, unfortunately, it was some bright sparks idea to walk through the Pembrokeshire National Park for five miles from our hotel to get to the nearest town, and we were still only half way there. The sun was starting to approach the surrounding hills,¬†closing in with a…

The Complete Guide – What To See, Eat and Do With Kids In Copenhagen

Weekend Break Appeal Back in March of this year we took our shoes off and kicked back in Denmark’s embracing capital city, Copenhagen.

Nottingham – A Family Mini-Break

Mini – Break Worthy? Parking itself right in the middle of the country, Nottingham definitely gets 10/10 for location – only 2 hours from London or Manchester, a mere 3 from Newcastle or Bristol, what’s your excuse not to make a trip?

The Sky-Trail High Ropes – Holmepierre Pont Country Park

Sky-Trail High Ropes Rule! Having 3 kids can be an expensive affair, even taking them out for coffee and cake can call upon you to sell a lung. So, during the Summer Holidays, I’m forever looking for activities that don’t break the bank. The Sky-Trail High Ropes at Holmepierre Pont Country Park ticks this box….

Family Times In Edinburgh And Beyond

Sundried Haggis & A Tartan Tan I’m pretty sure that if you visited the Scottish Tourism Website you’d be hard pushed to find the recommendation to visit their country in February, after all, even a summer holiday requires hats and scarves. However, this is our third trip to visit family in Edinburgh in the February…

24 Hours in Oxford

A Weekend In Oxford Oxford – known as the ‘City of Spires’, a fact which I find utterly depressing! Imagining ornate protruding roof columns and a petit handful of photographic opportunities, I was mildly excited about our trip away, nurturing thoughts of having more fun in the 5 star hotel we were about to check…

Portugal – Best European Country Apparently.

The Best European Country? Really? Portugal is a country of contrasts for me. Ranking no.1 this year on the Best European Country List, it is definitely full of beauty and opportunities for the tourist (I know-I’ve seen a fair bit of it!) but it always leaves me with a feeling of sadness and melancholy too….

St Andrews & The East Neuk

Sunset Skies and Scottish Pies… Two weeks of no school – time to reunite the kids with family. We love living in Nottingham; the right mix of culture and entertainment combined with a life we’ve grown together which feels good.
