Travel: Iconic Destinations for your Bucket List

Are you one of those people that has a bucket list? When you’re younger often a holiday with your best friends was what you desired, the location didn’t matter as long as you were all together, the weather was good and you were having fun.

10 reasons to visit ZSL London Zoo

ZSL London Zoo has got to be one of the most fun days out we’ve had this year, there is so much to see and do and I think people of all ages would be entertained! It first opened to the public in 1847 and sits in the top corner of Regents Park, so it’s easy to get to by public transport or car (it has it’s own car park) Open daily from 10am you can buy tickets online or at the gate and can easily spend the whole day there!

Days Out: Brighton Sealife Centre

Yesterday we had an underwater adventure at Brighton’s Sealife Centre. If you’ve never been before it’s easy to find: head to the pier and you can’t miss it! You can access is from the street or from the beach and there is plenty of parking on Madeira Drive (though it’s not free so publish transport is probably cheaper!) Brighton Sealife Centre is the oldest aquarium in the world still operating, and there is a lot to do and something to suit all ages. For my two children (at 3 and 5) years old they really just wanted to look at fish and sea creatures, with their questions answered. As they get older they’ll be more interested in the talks and in the info boards I think, but there is enough…

Chilled in a Field Festival 2018

We spent last weekend being very chilled out in a field, and in the woods! We’d been invited to Chilled in a Field festival, and it was both the kids’ and Sam’s first ever weekend festival experience, and the perfect introduction. Chilled in a Field is a small family friendly festival that takes place in the grounds of Bentley Wildfowl and Motor museum, in East Sussex. The location was perfect, the weather was hot (if a bit too hot – thank goodness for shady woods!) and there was so much to do that we definitely didn’t do it all! I’ve made a video of everything though and you can see that at the bottom of this post! We arrived on Friday lunch time, worked up a sweat pitching our tent and…

A trip to Chessington and win FRIDGE FULL OF YAZOO!

This year we’re working with Yazoo as #Shaketesters, trying out their No Added Sugar drinks (Skip to the bottom for a mega giveaway!) and last week they sent us to Chessington World of Adventures for a summer day trip and we had a blast! Thankfully the weather was a lot cooler on the day we picked to go at 24 degrees, and the queue times weren’t too horrific either. We’d not been for a couple of years since our Glamping trip and as Arlo is now over 0.9 metres he was able to go on a lot more, though I think the magic height is 1.1 as there were a few things he was still too short for!  We started with a quick tomb blast, merrily firing  our laser guns at…
