Undley Farm Pumpkin Patch and Maize Maze

For a couple of years now, I've been meaning to take my kids to a pumpkin patch ahead of the Halloween celebrations. I searched and searched last year and all that was local to us in Buckinghamshire, were some barns piled up with pumpkins to buy but none involved visiting an actual patch. Luckily for

The day I made my own Big Mac #YourNewMcDonalds

Recently I went to visit the McDonald’s at Norwich airport where along with a group of other bloggers we were given a guided tour of the new facilities available and given the opportunity to make our very own Big Mac. I haven’t actually been into one of their restaurants for quite a while and it's

Your very own Shiatsu Massager in your home

Ever felt like you really need a good shoulder and back massage but there is literally no one around or willing to give you one? This is where a massager is worth its weight in gold. Over the years, I've always been prone to pulling my neck, so anything that claims to help with tension

Learning to tell the time with an Ice-Watch

Learning to tell the time has been a pretty big topic in our house lately. Mainly because our eldest son who is 8, still hasn't fully got to grips with it. Besides it being a pretty good idea to be able to tell the time at 8, it's also becoming an issue when the boys

Autumn update: The reading nook

Now that the weather has started to turn a bit nippy, my thoughts quickly turn to how I can make home that little bit cosier. The candles come straight out, along with all the throws and fairy lights. I love this time of year before it really starts to get cold, but the nights are

A playhouse of dreams for a two year old

When I was little, I would have been thrilled to have had a big proper 'wendy house' in my garden.  A place to indulge my inner homebody and let my creativity run wild. A playhouse in the garden is something that all kids will appreciate and acts as a little haven that they can call

Why we love Lanzarote for a family holiday

Last year we went on our first proper holiday as five and it was most definitely one of those holidays that will stay with us for a long time.  We hadn't anticipated going anywhere at all but we were fortunate enough to be gifted some money from a family member and we knew that a

An ombré cake to celebrate Georgie turning 2

I'm a little late, as usual, but I wanted to share some pictures of Georgie shortly after she turned two. We were away for her birthday and although it was lovely to be spending her special day on holiday, it also meant that I couldn't make her a birthday cake as I do each year.

Are you brave enough to change your hair styles?

As a little girl I was blonde and gradually throughout my teens my hair started to darken to a dark blonde/light brown colour. Then somewhere along the line, I found hair dye and started to lighten my hair and that then became the norm for me. I mainly used home dye kits and on the

An outfit for a girl with brothers

We're at that funny time of the year where it's still summer but things are beginning to get wrapped up for Autumn arriving. I've always hated the fact that you might not have yet had your summer holiday but the shops are already clearing out all of the summer clothes, making way for clothes designed

Travel: An Italian Family Holiday

Family holidays are very important, they offer an often much needed opportunity to step away from the every day routine and allow families to spend some real quality time together and create lovely memories. Nonetheless, there are different families in different situations- meaning that a summer holiday might not be doable for everyone, or perhaps

Review: The Silver Cross Avia Stroller

We've had over eight years of using a pushchair now and we've tried a few in that time. The time when you use a pushchair is both a blessing and a curse. In the early days, it's crucial for getting your precious little newborn around then it's needed for those trips out and about when

Are you a boy and girl mum?

Next month our little girl will turn two. Two years old. How the hell did that happen so quickly? She burst into our lives as our little pink bundle of joy and she's been everything that we had imagined when having a girl. I've been able to buy all manner of things that were just

Family Travel: Cornbury Festival 2017

We recently attended our very first festival as a family and we were both apprehensive and excited about our little trip. It's been many years since I have been to a festival and when I did it was pre-kids and even pre-husband! So experiencing a festival with the children in tow, was something completely new.

Throwing a Summer Garden Party

It feels like we’ve waited a long time, but finally summer is here! And though the British weather may not always allow for an entirely sunny summer holiday, it is not quite as bad as its reputation may have you believe. We get lovely long days and light evenings, with the occasional sunny spells (and

#SpaSeekersParentsRetreat at the Brooklands Hotel

A couple of weeks ago I went to visit a spa with some blogging friends for a 'parents retreat'. Now when this was suggested to me I didn't need anytime at all to think about my answer. Er, yes please! I actually had to really think about when it was that I last had a
