Sunday Scrapbook – Horrible History and London

Another week has shot by, and I think I wrote last weeks Sunday Scrapbook post on the train into London, so I’ll start there. London was pretty busy as it was the Marathon, so by mid afternoon there were a lot of tired looking people hobbling around wrapped up in shiny blankets looking mightily annoyed that the trains from Paddington…

Review: TomTom GO Premium

A little while ago on Instagram I shared a post about the TomTom Go Premium and how easy it made planning trips, but since then Sam has been using it for delivery jobs so has really put it through its paces. He’s written up his thoughts on why this is such a helpful little thing to have with you on all…

Me and Mine – April 19

Another month has hurtled by but it’s been a good one for us, lots of time together for various reasons and some memories made. We took our family photos in the rapeseed field behind Granny’s house and in fact Digby (which is what the kids call her!) took the photos for us! We were on a dog walk trying to…

Sunday Scrapbook: Theatre, Work & London

Well doesn’t having two bank holidays in a row make you discombobulated? Or is it just me… I get confused enough with normal bank holiday Monday weeks but add the Friday to that and the fact we were away and I can’t tell you which way is up let alone what day it’s been for the past week! Most of…

3 things to get kids learning in the Garden

Having just spent a long weekend in Norfolk with family with free access to a garden it just made me pine for the day when we have a house rather than a flat. My kids love to spend time outdoors, and although I make sure they get as much of it as possible it can be tricky when you don’t…

Sunday Scrapbook – Easter on the Boat

Happy Easter! We’ve had a really nice second half of the Easter holidays, the sunny weather has helped even if I wasn’t quite prepared for it! Last weekend we spent the day in London having ‘breakfast with the bunny’ at Hard Rock Café, then strolled through Hyde Park to the Science Museum where we spent the afternoon learning about all…

Days out: Drusillas & The New Rainforest Carousel

Drusillas Park is somewhere we really love to visit as a family, as it has enough to keep us busy for the whole day, with so much to see and do. From rare animals to soft play with so much between it really is a great place for a day out! We were invited to visit this week to coincide…

Herodrive DC SuperFriends Toy Cars Review

If you’ve met Arlo there is a good chance that at some point he will have mentioned Batman, whether or not it was relevant to the conversation! This is a kid who chose to have a Batman themed party for his third birthday despite never having actually seen a batman film or program. He has now of course but that…

Breakfast with the Bunny at HardRock Cafe London

On Sunday we had a real treat, as we were invited to have ‘Breakfast with the Bunny’ at Hard Rock Cafe London, the original Hard Rock Cafe, that opened in 1971! The kids were incredibly excited to meet the Easter Bunny, and Sam and I were excited for the legendary food and famous rock relics on the walls! Breakfast with…

S’mores Hot Cross Buns

I love Hot Cross Buns, and am so glad that you can pretty much get them year round now! I love them on their own with butter, with Jam, and sometimes even with chocolate spread on. However this year I have really upped my Hot Cross Bun consumption game and have been making S’Mores Hot Cross Buns! They’re so easy…

Brickosaurs at Marwell Zoo

A week ago the kids and I spent the day at Marwell Zoo searching for their new arrivals, all the Brickosaur dinosaurs! These amazing creatures are hand-made by a team of professional builders- out of LEGO! They really are very impressive and as both kids love dinosaurs and Arlo has just got into Lego in a big way it was…
