A traditional Christmas at Chiltern Open Air Museum

Chiltern Open Air Museum is one of our favourite places for a day out – as well as the various old buildings which the girls can explore, there is plenty of space for them to run around in; woods to wander through and sheep and the horses to say hello too.  Other than the Christmas weekend though, it is closed over the winter.… Read more

The Friday Focus 26/08/16 – Family time

This week has been all about spending time with family. My twin sister and nieces came to stay for a few days at the beginning of this week and the four cousins have, as always, had a wonderful time together. Jessica was very sad when they had to go back home again though!… Read more

A magical adventure in an Enchanted Museum

Two little princesses with their (fairy) godmother in tow – the perfect combination for a fairytale adventure in an Enchanted Museum.  Godmummy Katy had come up to spend the day with us at Chiltern Open Air Museum and there was certainly magic in the air.  Who knew what we might encounter on our day’s adventure?… Read more

The Friday Focus – 20/05/16

It’s been another week of flying solo for me – hubby’s away working on an event this week and next week so just me and the girls for a couple of weeks.  This week has been a little more challenging as Sophie was poorly earlier in the week.  I’m not entirely sure what was wrong but she was just very subdued and spent most of the time dozing on the sofa.  Thankfully she is back to her usual happy self now though.… Read more

Easter fun at Chiltern Open Air Museum

One of the best things about spring is that all our favourite places have started opening again.  Good Friday saw Chiltern Open Air Museum opening their doors for the start of the 2016 season, with a Traditional Easter event running over the Easter weekend.

On arrival, we were given the choice of two Easter trails to choose from – Easter bunnies or Easter eggs.  Jessica chose the Easter eggs and we headed off to find the ten different coloured eggs which were hidden in various buildings around the museum.… Read more

Always a popular day out with the girls, who describe it as “their favourite Legoland ever!” – we can’t wait for the park to re-open on 11th March so we can enjoy some days out there.… Read more

An autumn walk at Chiltern Open Air Museum

As winter edges closer, our favourite places are now closing for the winter. A beautiful autumn day gave us the perfect opportunity to have one last day out at Chiltern Open Air Museum before the end of the season. Our previous visits have mostly focused on the houses around the green – this time we decided to explore parts of the museum we hadn’t visited before.… Read more

A taste of medieval life at Chiltern Open Air Museum - Little Hearts, Big Love

A taste of medieval life at Chiltern Open Air Museum

Last weekend, we took a trip back in time and found ourselves getting a taste of medieval life at the Magna Carta event at Chiltern Open Air Museum. Several tents were set up in the field, giving an insight into life in the 13th century.

In one tent, the wealthy ladies were busy with their needlework while a nun stood in silent prayer.… Read more

The Friday Focus 26/06/15 - Little Hearts, Big Love

The Friday Focus 26/06/15

Last weekend I enjoyed an amazing couple of days at Britmums Live – meeting up with lots of fab fellow bloggers and attending some very interesting sessions. I even ended up being wrapped from head to toe in toilet roll as part of a successful Guinness World Record attempt to make the most mummies by wrapping people in toilet paper in three minutes (our final total was 51 beating the previous world record by just one).… Read more
