Siblings October 2017

Another month, another Siblings update. This month has seen another birthday here, this time it was Boo as she turned 8. I now have an 8 year old and a 5 year old, yet it feels like only yesterday that I had a baby and toddler. The time is flying …

A Train Trip to Birmingham

Last week was Boo’s birthday and she was very lucky and received some money. Whilst she wanted to save most of it to spend on her trip to Disney World next year, she was also keen to buy a few things. We decided to go shopping in Birmingham so she’d …

Happy 8th Birthday, Boo!

Today my beautiful baby girl is 8. These eight years have just flown by, and my eldest has ensured that I have loved it all. From baby to toddler to pre-schooler to school girl, Boo has delighted in everything around her. She misses nothing, is freakishly observant, and absorbs all …

Boo’s Go Ape Party

My baby girl turns 8 tomorrow. To celebrate, she had a Go Ape party yesterday with her friends, over at Cannock Chase. Our first Go Ape experience was back in April when we visited Southampton’s Go Ape experience and both of the kids absolutely adored it. So much so that …

Visiting Sudbury Hall

Over the weekend we visited one of our favourite National Trust sites, Sudbury Hall. Sudbury Hall is a winner for us as as well as a beautiful hall to look around which normally has an I Spy trail on for the kids, sprawling gardens to play in and a fun …

A Family Holiday at Duinrell, Holland

If you follow me on social media, you might have spotted some of our adventures when we were away last month, a family holiday at Duinrell, Holland. As we had such a great time at Duinrell, I thought I’d share a little more about what we got up to and …

Siblings September 2017

Over the past few weeks, since my last post, we’ve had our first holiday abroad, more fun in the summer holidays, Little Man’s fifth birthday and Boo’s return to school with Little Man starting school. It’s been a busy month! And with all of these events and changes, my two …

Little Man is a Schoolboy

Little Man is now a schoolboy. How did that happen?! He started school a couple of days ago, and is just going in for the afternoons this week. He will be there full time from Monday. I really wasn’t sure how he would get on, as he struggled to settle …

Little Man is 5 Today!

Today is my Little Man’s birthday, he’s 5 years old today. Five. Just wow. Where did those years go? I’ve seen this boy as a sleepy and cuddly baby, a cheeky daredevil toddler, a shy and imaginative preschooler and now we’re here turning five, as he’s about to become a …

A Day Out At Drayton Manor

One of the best things about being a blogger is getting invited to family fun days out, the kind that make my kids scream and jump up and down with excitement. It just makes me so happy to see them so happy. On Sunday we were invited to visit Drayton …

We Are Sea Life Centre Ambassadors!

Today I am delighted to announce that we have been invited to work with the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham for the next year, as blogger ambassadors for them. We’ve visited Sea Life several times since having the children and they always enjoy their time there. As they have …

A Sleepover at Warwick Castle

Last week we had a sleepover at Warwick Castle, staying in a Woodland Lodge in their Knight’s Village. We checked in after a fun afternoon at Warwick Castle, wandering round and taking in the birds of prey show, Horrible Histories and Wars of the Roses Live. I wrote earlier this …

Pirates at the National Forest Adventure Farm

We spent Saturday, our first day of the summer holidays, at the National Forest Adventure Farm. It is a firm favourite family day out of ours, so we were looking forward to visiting and checking out this summer’s activities around the pirates theme. We took a picnic and ate on …

My Daughter Has Football Fever!

Yes, football fever has taken hold here! Last week Boo and I went along to our first SSE Wildcats session to find out what it was all about. SSE Wildcats sessions are for girls aged 5-11 years old to encourage them to get into football in a safe and fun …

Warwick Castle – A Must-Visit this Summer

We have been to Warwick Castle a few times this year so far, and we will definitely be there again this summer. I love the history, of course, and the kids and the Husband love exploring the grounds, watching the shows,  climbing the towers, and so much more. This is …

Bistrot Pierre Review

We were invited to visit Bistrot Pierre over the weekend, our first time visiting, and it won’t be the last. We had a 12.30 booking and arrived to a restaurant with a few tables filled, yet by the time we left it was packed. It’s fortunate that our kids like …
