Travel: A Weekend Camping in the New Forest

We went on our first family camping trip last weekend, taking advantage of the extra day of the bank holiday weekend, we left early on Saturday and got back Monday evening. For our first trip I think 2 nights was just right and maybe next time we’ll book three nights! You might remember a little video I shared a few…

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…

Thomas & Friends: The Great Race Premier

On Sunday we were lucky enough to be invited up to London to the Kings Cross Theatre to be amongst the first people to see the brand new Thomas and Friends movie. Now I have a really fond memory of being read the books and also listening to the stories on cassette when I was younger. I know that the TV…

Travel: Explorer Glamping at Chessington

Last weekend we had our first experience of Glamping. I can say hands down that glamping beats regular camping by a mile and if I ever have the option between camping and glamping I’ll be choosing the latter.
