Athena & Arlo – August 2018

A couple of days overdue and with no ‘proper’ photos, just a selection of my favourite photos of these two tinkers together over the last month! And together they have been, though not always in perfect harmony! Now that they’re both in school/preschool five days a week it really shows in their behaviour when they are together 24/7 as they really start to rub each other up the wrong way at times and I often feel like a referee rather than a mum! But that being said there have been some super-lovely moments when they’ve been playing in the ‘secret room’ (aka under the bunk beds) and have also played mums and dads and various other make believe games quite sweetly. They loved playing out in the garden and paddling…

Interiors: How to create a family friendly living room

When you live alone, decorating your home is a relatively easy process as you only have to take your own wants and needs into account, so keeping everyone happy is far from a challenge. Unfortunately, when you have a family, it’s not quite so simple. You have to consider ideas from every person living in your home and do your best to ensure that everyone gets what they want. If you have fairly young children, you also need to pay close attention to safety and any potential risks. The living room is the most sociable area of most family homes, so it’s vital that this space works well. Here are ten ways you can create a more family-friendly living room:   Dedicate A Space Unless you already have a separate…

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…

Travel: 6 Reasons to Visit Thailand

Thailand is one of the world’s great tourist destinations, and there are plenty of reasons why this is the case.

Sunday Scrapbook – Cycling a four person bike & being a teacher!

We’re half way through the Summer holidays! This past week has been the first week we were at home all week too and it was so nice to just catch up on the washing, the post, and enjoy being at home a bit! We have been out and about of course – picking the two days it rained of course, sods law! It was pretty nice to stick jeans and wellies on though for the first time in forever! Here’s this weeks vlog if you fancy a watch:   If you watched my instagram stories at all this week you’ll have seen us cycling this weird bike/tuk tuk hybrid along the seafront, which was fun but pretty hard on the old legs! There is a guy hiring them out this…
