A Visit to Calke Explore

Adventures/ day out

Disclosure: We were invited to explore Calke Explore by the National Trust. We received free entry, a goody bag and a voucher for lunch however all opinions are my own.

If you read this blog regularly or follow us on social media then you will know that one of our favourite National Trust properties is Calke Abbey so we were very excited to go and explore the newly opened outdoor hub… Calke Explore. Calke Explore is a brilliant new addition to Calke Abbey making it even better for families who are wanting to spend more time outdoors.

My Happy Days [17th Aug-6th Sept 2019]

My Happy Days/ personal

Finally I am getting chance to sit down and update you all. It’s been three weeks since I last posted my happy days project, two of those we spent in Cornwall and then the last week has just been busy getting the kids ready to go back to school. We had a wonderful end to the summer holidays in Cornwall. A week spent in Falmouth and a week in Bude, we were so lucky with the weather which meant we were able to spend a large part of our holiday on the beach. Absolute bliss! Liam spent a week with us too which was wonderful to have all my three children on holiday together, for the first time in EIGHT years! Anyway I’ve got loads to share so I’ll get on with it…

Baked Chicken and Chorizo Risotto from Hello Fresh

Recipe/ sponsored

I have to say I often struggle to come up with family meals that all of us will love, something that I can cook when the kids have friends over or even when we have friends over and not go to a huge amount of trouble… because let’s be clear I love the socialising and eating part much more than the actual cooking part.

Fun at the SnowDome with the Toboggan Day Ticket


Disclosure – We were invited to spend the day at the SnowDome free of charge so we could experience the Toboggan day tickets for ourselves and tell you all about our day.

Yesterday we spent a very busy active day at the SnowDome in Tamworth experiencing the new toboggan day ticket. The day ticket includes swimming with the inflatable & flume, a toboggan session and ice skating. Priced at £20.70 for adults and £19.70 for children which we think is brilliant value for a fun-packed day.

Pik-Nik The Perfect Snack!


* This is a sponsored post.

If your household is anything like mine then your food bill will almost double during the school holidays because my kids seem to have bottomless pits for stomachs! They are constantly asking for something to eat and I am always looking for good honest healthy snacks that aren’t full of sugar. We recently discovered Pik-Nik Twiller snacks and I am over the moon because my kids love them! Pik-Nik are cheese sticks made of delicious creamy mozzarella and they taste extremely good!
