A family took a drive to a well-known theme park;
They boarded a boat and headed into the dark.
What woodland creatures did they discover inside?
And what did they think of the Gruffalo ride?
What other adventures did they undergo
On their journey to seek out the Gruffalo?
My girls were very excited at getting an invite to visit Chessington World of Adventures, spend a night at the Azteca Hotel and try out the new Gruffalo River Ride Adventure before it opened to the public.… Read more
I’ve done a lot of things with my girls, but one of the things we hadn’t yet done together was a cinema trip. An invite to the screening of Surf’s Up 2: WaveMania at Sony Pictures Home Entertainments’ offices was the perfect opportunity to introduce the girls to seeing a film on a big screen.… Read more
From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!
Thank you to everyone who linked up last week.… Read more

Sunny days, warmer weather, daffodils blooming in the garden – it must be Spring! This week has seen us shedding our winter coats and enjoying trips to the park after school.
I love getting out and about at this time of year. The world is such a pretty place. The trees are full of pink and white blossom, the rhododendrons are starting to bloom and daffodils seem to be waving their bright cheery heads everywhere.… Read more
Sleep deprivation is one of the hardest things about parenthood. Nothing really prepares you for it. The mind-numbing, all-consuming exhaustion that comes with a repeated lack of quality sleep. The way it affects your mood and your sanity. Those moments when it seems almost everyone else is sleeping and you feel alone.… Read more
#withkindnessandlove is a weekly series which is part of my #365daysofkindness project which I am taking on during this year. Each week, I will be sharing some stories of kindness along with some things that have made me smile during the week.

It’s crazy how quickly the weeks go by now that we are in a routine of school and preschool. Once we get home from the school run, the afternoon whizzes by in a blur of busyness – reading, doing the weekly home learning book activity, getting dinner ready and the girls fed and then before I know it it’s time for bath and bed.… Read more
