Days Out: Ightham Mote, National Trust Kent

We spent a weekend away a couple of weeks ago, staying in Kent to see Santa at Leeds Castle but wanted to find something else locally to do, and Ightham Mote was a national trust property we’d not visited before! It was cold and crisp but lovely day and we wandered around the grounds doing a little Victorian Christmas trail, where…

What to do if the Worst Happens

So this is a fairly morbid subject for this time of year, but it’s something that I feel I need to do to ‘get my ducks in a row’ as it were. What would happen if I popped my clogs tomorrow?

Everyday Us – Visiting Santa

Last weekend the kids got to see Santa again, we went to Marwell at the end of November, but when we were offered that trip I had already purchased tickets to see the man in red at Leeds Castle and booked a night in a hotel near by too – so the lucky ducks got to see him twice! Thankfully…

Polly from Our Seaside Baby tagged me to answer the questions below… What’s your favourite Christmas Movie? It’s got to be Home Alone, but I do also have a soft spot for Love Actually! Where do you usually spend…

Sunday Scrapbook – Pantos, Candles, Coffee Shops + more!

The past few weeks have been a bit crackers if I’m honest, some really good bits and some not so wonderful bits. I wanted to get a Sunday Scrapbook  post up last weekend but then a website drama unfolded and I couldn’t do anything whilst the whole blog was being moved to a different host, so this is a couple of…

Personalised Rings with Centime

I love personalised jewellery, love being given it, wearing it and giving it as a gift, but with so many different options to choose from it can be a bit overwhelming! With over 34,000 sales on their Etsy store and an average customer rating of 5* Centime Gift’s store is definitely the right place to start looking for personalised jewellery. Necklaces,…
