Siblings June 2017

As I write this month’s post, I have both kids at home with me. Right now, I hear the Muppets Most Wanted soundtrack playing, they are off in another room with swords, costumes and a lot of laughter. This is a normal day. When they are together there is always …

We Are Going To Walt Disney World!

I mentioned last week that we were looking into booking our Walt Disney World holiday, and yes, we are now booked up and excited! We will be going next summer and are booked to stay in one of the Disney World resorts. As I have spent a fair bit of …

A Hampshire Mini-Break

Last week saw us spending a couple of nights down in Hampshire, exploring the area and enjoying a few of the many family attractions there. To be honest, we could have spent a lot longer than three days there as there was a lot to see and do, but we …

Family Motor Show Events To Check Out This Summer

As the summer sets in, it’s time to turn to family days out. Make this summer holidays more exciting than ever by considering to visit motor shows and make it a summer of motoring. Over the recent years, motor shows have evolved drastically and are no longer the boring stuffy …

Siblings April 2017

Little Man seems to have had a growth spurt this month. I find them tricky to spot as I see him every day, but his trousers seem that bit shorter and several people have commented on his height to me. Yep, he’s shooting up and is quite a bit taller …

Our Stay Play Explore Break

Last weekend saw us having a Stay Play Explore mini-break around Leicestershire. I have only got really good things to say about this, so I will say right up front that I think this break represents fantastic value for money, is great for families and every aspect of our stay and adventures …

Siblings March 2017

Another month has rolled by, so it’s time to take a look at my pair of siblings. This month they seem to be back to their energetic, buoyant selves. They are the very best of friends. They had a lovely half term together, lounging about in the mornings, playing and …

Siblings February 2017

It’s time for me to share a little update on my two this month, and initially I though that not much had changed. But there has been a shift, and it’s largely down to my daughter. Boo and Little Man still play together, still giggle and conspire together, and last …

Siblings January 2017

OK, to sum the siblings up this month is easy – they absolutely adore each other! Having two weeks off over Christmas has meant that they are the very best of friends. We had a wonderful break and the kids were just revelling in being together 24/7. Boo’s return to …

Our 2017 Adventures Wishlist

I have said it before and I will say it again, I do not like January. I am a summer person, I like warmth, sunshine and pottering about in the garden. I am OK with autumn as I love the changing colours and the cosy evenings, I then have Christmas …

What the Ladybird Heard Live!

Yesterday we were fortunate to be invited along to Birmingham Town Hall to see What the Ladybird Heard Live! We are big Julia Donaldson fans here and I have so many happy memories of reading this one to Boo over and over and over again so we were all very …

Siblings December 2016

Ah, December is here and with it comes over-excitement, anticipation and endless questions. When will it be Christmas? How does Santa do that? What shall we feed the reindeer? How does the elf work? What will we do on Christmas day? – this last question has been answered many, many …

Meeting Santa at The National Sea Life Centre

Over the weekend we took the kids to the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham to meet the man himself, Santa Claus! It’s fair to say that they were really, really looking forward to it. We had a brilliant time at the Sea Life Centre last time that we visited, for …

Win Tickets to ‘What the Ladybird Heard’!

We are big Julia Donaldson fans here, as I imagine most households with young children are. So I am so excited that we’ve been invited along to see What the Ladybird Heard at Birmingham Town Hall, just after Christmas. We’ve yet to tell the kids, so this will be a …

The Giovanni Rana Famiglia Table Challenge

A couple of weeks ago we were challenged to take the the Giovanni Rana Famiglia Table Challenge. Not ones to shy away from a challenge, especially one that involves delicious Italian food, we decided to take them up on it. Italian food always goes down well here with all of …

Siblings November 2016

Another month, another Siblings post. I have to admit, I am struggling to believe we’re in November! The kids are in Christmas mode. Already. It’s kind of difficult for them not to be as everywhere they go there are adverts, signs and products promoting it, so of course to them …
