Review: The Original Konfidence Swim Jacket (At Splash Landings Waterpark)

A few weeks ago, we had the chance to visit Alton Towers as part of our role as Konfidence Swimologists during 2017. During our mini-break, we were able to stay at the brand new CBeebies Land Hotel, visit the main theme park and CBeebies Land, plus also check out the waterpark at the Splash Landings […]

Getting Ready For Toddler L’s 3rd Birthday

And just like *that*, it’s Toddler L’s 3rd birthday. During the early hours of Friday morning, it will have been 1,097 days, 26,328 hours, 1,579,680 minutes or 94,780,800 seconds (depending on your time measurement of choice) since she disembarked the mothership.

13 Things You’ll Inadvertently Do When On Holiday Without Kids

The missus and I have just returned from a short holiday to Hamburg. Although going on European city breaks is nothing new for us, there was one big difference this time – we went as a couple and left Toddler L with her grandparents. From recollection, this is only the second time in her nearly […]

Starting Potty Training & Toddler L’s Week 1 Update

Back in May, I wrote a post about how Toddler L wasn’t yet potty about toilet training – I know, genius title, you don’t need to lavish me with praise. Well, fast forward two short months, and she’s now not only ready for potty training, but is actually already a week into her journey. In a […]

Review: Amazon Fire 7 Tablet And Amazon Appstore

As a family that uses a significant amount of tech, it’s surprising that tablets rarely get used in our house. We actually have two and have gone through spells of using them, but they soon fall out of favour for whatever reason. But now that Toddler L is getting older, I’m a lot more open […]
