Pirate Sandpit Play

A Sunny Sandy Afternoon in Saundersfoot

We were recently fortunate enough to go on holiday to Bluestone, in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It’s a fabulous place to stay, and it’s in a wonderful location. We were also lucky enough to get a few sunny days while we were there, so were able to take the children to the …

Our Stay at Bluestone National Park Resort, Wales

We were recently given the opportunity to have a four-night break at Bluestone National Park Resort, in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

As soon as we’d got our booking confirmed, we received periodic emails …

Peppa Pig’s Oinkestra

Hands-up if you watch Peppa Pig in your household? Oh, we do, over and over again! The children both love Peppa, so when we heard about the Nick Jr. Oinkestra celebrations, we were keen to get involved. July 5th marks 10 years since Peppa Pig was first broadcast on Nick Jr. So …

The National Botanic Garden, Wales

On the drive back from our recent holiday to Bluestone, we decided to make a stop at the Welsh National Botanic Garden. It was my birthday after all, so I got to call the shots! On wondering in, Boo was immediately won over by the huge water feature that they …

Michelin’s Living Total Performance Campaign

Since having the kids, car safety has become more important to me. I’ve also now got more responsibility for looking after a car and making choices with it, as I previously had a company car and all servicing and repairs were carried out for me  – oh, that was all …

Meet Colin the Crab

I’ve seen Gone Crabbing clothes and kitchenware before and have always had a little soft spot for that crab, as the image makes me smile. He always looks so happy! So when I heard that they’ve now brought out a pop-up picture book about him, I was unable to resist…! …

The Milestone That I’m Dreading

We’ve a big milestone looming. School days are upon us. And the truth of it is, I’m feeling really sad about it. We went along for our parents evening a few days ago, so I’m now fully prepared. We know the class Boo will be in, her teacher, all about her …

Outdoor Tuff Spot Painting

The children love getting out into the garden as much as they can, as do I. They bake in their mudpie kitchen, blow bubbles, ride about on their scooters and bikes, play with their croquet, golf and balls, jump on their trampoline and tootle in and out of their little playhouse. …
