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 […]

Having A Kickabout With The SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Team

Never has women’s football been so popular. The FA Women’s Super League continues to go from strength to strength, England’s women are putting the men to shame on the internationals stage and the stars of the women’s game – Karen Carney, Toni Duggan, Ellen White, Fara Williams etc – are increasingly high profile. As a […]

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 […]

A Toddler-Free, Dads-Only Trip To Topgolf In Watford

I may be stating the obvious, but having a kid changes things. Take something like hobbies. Over the years, the number of activities I’ve done has slowly declined. This hasn’t been on purpose, but a mixture of things – moving out of London, having a kid, friends getting partners, becoming older etc – just makes your […]

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 […]

Exploring The Gruffalo Spotters Trail At Wendover Woods

A family took a stroll through the deep dark Wendover Woods… If you can forgive me for butchering one of the (probably) most famous opening lines in children’s book history, then let me share our recent adventure in search of The Gruffalo. Toddler L loves all things Gruffalo. We read the book – and Gruffalo’s Child – […]

Review: Water Babies Toddler Swimming Lessons (Chapter 7)

It only feels like the other day, but it was actually a year ago that I last wrote a specific review about our Water Babies swimming lessons. At that time, we – or should that be Toddler L – had completed Chapter 4 and was having an absolute blast in the pool. As tends to happen with […]
