Travel: A day out in Hastings

Last Sunday we spent the day in Hastings being tourists! We hadn’t had a family day out a while and Hastings is about an hour drive from us, long enough to not go very often but not so far that the journey is unbearable with two children! Hastings is a seaside town in East Sussex and is the heart of 1066…

Planes and boats with the iCandy Raspberry

Athena loves planes. Sam loves planes, possibly because his dad was a pilot. His sister works with private jets too so it seems to be in the blood! We decided to give Athena a treat last week and take her to see the planes at Shoreham Airport, although it’s actually Brighton and Hove city airport these days! We took a…

Funk the Family Festival!

  On Saturday we spent a glorious afternoon in Hove Park at Funk the Family Festival, which is a one day music festival that caters for all ages! We all had fun and were exhausted by the time we left (earlier than planned due to a non-napping toddler, but who can blame her as there was so much to see…

A stroll amongst the Bluebells

Leaving the house seems to be a…

Much as I like to enjoy autumn from inside the house with a nice smelling candle and a mug of cocoa, I like to be out exploring too. With a growing family…

Days out: Nyman’s Gardens & some new boots

So I was ready for autumn to arrive, I had got all my tights out the bottom drawer and fluffed up my jumpers ready for wearing, and swapped flipflops for boots! Then Sunday happened! Glorious sunshine and warmth descended upon us after an overcast morning us, so we headed to one of our local National Trust properties Nyman’s for the…

Brighton on the Beach

If you follow me on Instagram or twitter you will probably have seen me majorly making up for my social media absence of late on Friday night and Saturday morning! If not then you missed this delight: I was super lucky to have been invited to an amazing night and day thanks to OnThe Beach. Along with thirteen or so…
