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.

As a […]

Review: Beko SteamXtra SmartStation Steam Generator Iron (SGA7126P)

Growing up, your food magically gets cooked and plated up, clothes mysteriously reappear clean in your wardrobe and the disappearing skidmarks you left in the toilet could only be explained by wizardry. Then we grow up. We fly the nest and soon […]

Review: Family Glamping At Penbugle Organic Farm Wigwams In Cornwall

The other week, I wrote about our family break to South Devon at Hillhead Caravan Club Site. Well, our holiday didn’t finish there! From Devon, we made the hour and a bit journey across the county border to Penbugle Organic Farm in neighbouring Cornwall. Here, we did something a bit different – we had our first […]
