Camping with Millets #WeDoSummer

I said not that long ago that glamping was how I preferred to camp  although admittedly I’ve only been once, compared to a whole three times in my life in a ‘proper tent’ Basically I’m a camping newbie and the lovely people at Millets thought they’d see if they could change my mind about traditional camping and sent us 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…

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…

Travel: A day out in Hastings

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…

Brightons Best: Posh Totty Designs

On Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Posh Totty ‘posh party’ & what a party it was! Cocktails in mason jars with stripy straws, tasty treats both savoury and sweet and jewellery so gorgeous I didn’t know where to start looking first. On top of that a stylish shop, clean simple and well laid out…

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

Yesterday we decided to blow away the cobwebs with a stroll through some local woods, complete with added bluebells! Now I know there are woods a bit more of a walk away that are more like a carpet of bluebells rather than the semi-sparse spattering we saw today but they were pretty nonetheless! Leaving the house seems to be a…
