Yay I could not be more pleased that it is half term, we really need a bit of down time from the usual rushing around! We were supposed to be arranging to go away for the week but I stupidly let Boo’s passport run out and forgot all about it so when I came to booking us a late holiday I wasn’t able to. Oh well never mind we will just have to make do with having a week at home and spending some quality time together. Last week was a great week, we celebrated Boo turning ten and managed to get lots done at home… I’m hoping to be completely organised one of these days 😉

Anyway here are my favourite Instagram snaps from the last week… Read more

This half term (22-31 Oct) Warwick castle has been transformed into The Haunted Castle with six new spine tingling attractions. To make it even more scary Warwick Castle is open until 9pm each night too!

Our top 10 reasons why you should visit the SeaWorld Parks

Adventures/ sponsored/ Travel/ trip review

This August we had the opportunity to visit all four of the SeaWorld Parks in Florida, we had such an amazing time and I wrote about all of them separately on our return but today I wanted to give you our top 10 reasons why you should visit the SeaWorld Parks. If you don’t know the SeaWorld Parks they are SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Aquatica and Discovery Cove. We all loved each of the parks and if you are planning a trip to Florida then we would highly recommend you add them to your itinerary. Each park offers something completely different but every single one of them is a fantastic day out for all the family. So here are our top 10 reasons why you should visit them… Read more

This week it’s been all about Boo, which is strange! She doesn’t really like having her photo taken that much and can get a bit grumpy when I ask her so I usually opt to avoid conflict and go for Bugs which is the easy option. This last few weeks we have spent so much more time together doing things so I guess she has been happier because of it and spent less time in her room playing. Also it was her birthday party on Saturday so she’s been very excited about that all week! It’s not her actual birthday until Wednesday though. Whatever the reasons it’s just nice to see more of her in my photos this week 🙂

Here are my favourite Instagram snaps from the last week…

15 Bonfire Night Activities for Kids


After covering Halloween last week I thought I’d move right on to Bonfire Night. I love Bonfire night, I do think it should just be kept to one night though as there seems to be many different displays happening for a month or so… It really does make it feel less special.

We always go to our local display which is usually on the 5th November. There are certain things like making toffee that has to happen in our house every year without fail; so I’ve included that and some other awesome activities that you can do in preparation for Bonfire night with your kids.

So last week I set myself the challenge to not take any bedtime photos as I had been rather uninspired and getting rather lazy just taking a photo every night when the kids went to bed or were asleep.  I’ve done a bit better this week, I did still take one of sleeping Bugs though. We had a big sort out this weekend and I finally said goodbye to Bugs’ carrycot, car seat and pushchair… no more babies here 🙁
