A day in London: Rivers and Rhymes

We threw ourselves at the mercy of Southern Fail at the weekend and headed up to London for the day as a family. I adore London, though would never want to live there unless I could afford a very expensive riverside penthouse and a chauffeur. A day or two spent in our capital is perfect, and at the weekend the…

Days out: 8 reasons to visit Drusillas Park

Last week we spent an almost perfect day out as a family at Drusillas Park in East Sussex. The only reason it wasn’t perfect was because Arlo was sick in the car and it was a bit too hot for us all, nothing to do with Drusillas! We spent the whole day there and still didn’t quite manage to see…

Why we want to go to Airbourne in Eastbourne

With a dad that was a pilot Sam has always been interested in planes and things that fly, add Athena to the mix who loves to point out planes and helicopters whenever they fly past overhead, and Arlo who just loves looking at new and exciting things and we’re a fairly plane-enthusiastic family. We live close to Brighton & Hove…

Days out: Brighton Sealife Centre

Last Friday Athena and Arlo had an underwater adventure at Brighton’s Sealife Centre. It’s somewhere that I’d been before but not for a long time, and quite often it was for networking events in my old job (wonderful to walk round with a glass of wine but just as lovely with two small excited children and their Nan!) and a…

A Rambling we will go… Slindon Bottom!

Last Sunday I signed up to ramblers.org.uk and looked up a nice circular walk we could do as a family, and chose Slindon in West Sussex. We visited last year too but Athena was obviously not able to walk as far as she was only one and a bit, and there is an awesome pumpkin display each year too! We’ve decided…

Getting personal with I Just Love It

On Tuesday I was invited to a really fun event up in London with I just Love It, a website specialising in personalised gifts for everyone and anyone! They were previously known as ‘Gone digging’ and have been about for around 7 years so are not new to the market by any means, just sporting a snazzy new name! Upon…

Days Out: London Eye & Kensington Palace

Last Sunday we had the most perfect family day out in London doing touristy things! My love for London is well known but there are still more than a few attractions I’ve not visited, but now I can tick another two off my list thanks to 365 Tickets! According to my mum I turned down the chance to go on…

Days Out: Lewes

For my Mums birthday this year we went to spend a day in Lewes. I have been a few times before but never really done the touristy bits. We visited the Castle (well, what’s left of it) and also Anne of Cleves house. You can buy a joint ticket that gives you access to both of these for a reduced…
