Celebrating The #SmallVictories With Vauxhall Astra

Do you ever have one of those crappy days which are totally transformed by something  small and insignificant happening? You know the stuff I mean – think things like finding a fiver in a coat you’ve not worn in a while, getting the last loaf of bread from the shop or your toddler filling her […]

Review: A Family-Friendly Activity Holiday To Hampshire

For the third year running, we were invited by Hampshire’s Top Attractions to visit Hants for a short break. Having never really holidayed in the county prior to a few years ago, it’s now somewhere we instantly think of when it comes to family staycations. As Toddler L has just turned three, the emphasis of […]

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 […]

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

Looking Back On Our First Family Trip With A Baby To The Seaside

The other day, I was attempting to organise our photos. At the start of the year, I had a disaster and lost loads of our digital data – I dropped my laptop when playing with Toddler L and subsequently broke the hard drive. Bugger. To make things worse, when I went to get a backup […]

Review: A Family Stay At Hillhead Caravan Club Site And Exploring Devon

You may – or may not – remember that last summer I was an ambassador for The Caravan And Motorhome Club’s Big Little Tent Festival (BLTF). As part of this, we were given the opportunity of a family press trip to one of their UK club sites. As we don’t have a caravan or motorhome – my […]
