Langley Park is one of our favourite places to go for a walk. The Temple Gardens are the perfect place for some imaginative play and adventures and there are also lots of geocaches to be found.
The girls have recently started bringing their “nature notebooks” with them on our walks. I make sure I have glue dots, washi tape, crayons and pencils in my bag so they can stick and create to their heart’s content using the things they find in the park.… Read more
One of Jessica’s favourite models when we visited Babbacombe Model Village was the miniature Stonehenge. “Look Mummy! Stonehenge! The Go Jetters went there!” We told her that we would be going past Stonehenge on the way home. Maybe we could stop and take a closer look. Jessica was delighted. “And take a souvenir selfie?… Read more
Living inland means opportunities to walk along a beach are a rare treat for my girls. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to have fun on the beach during our recent weekend in Torquay even if it was January!
It might have been chilly, but the sun was shining and it was a beautiful afternoon.… Read more
A visit to a model village is such a fun way to spend an afternoon together as a family. The girls love looking at all the tiny buildings and people and hubby and I love all the little details. One of the things I love most about a model village is spotting all the little details.… Read more
The days are starting to get longer which means we can now start to fit in a trip to the park after school. The girls got a scooter each for Christmas and the park is just the right distance away for them to ride them there and back (and not too far if I end up having to carry them!)
We’ve been lucky with the weather this past week – it’s been cold but sunny.… Read more
I can’t resist the sunshine even when it’s cold outside. There’s something about a cold, crisp day that makes me feel alive. Going out for a walk and then coming home with pink cheeks from the cold to warm up with a hot chocolate is my favourite way to spend a winter’s afternoon.… Read more
As my regular readers will know, Legoland is one of our favourite places. Last year we went to the Christmas Bricktacular event for the first time. It was such a magical experience that we made sure we booked to go again this year. Here are ten things that we loved about our experience at Legoland Christmas Bricktacular:
1) Seeing Father Christmas
Father Christmas at Legoland has been one of the more magical Santa experiences for my children.… Read more
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
One of the things I love most about blogging is the friends that I have made because of it. It’s even nicer when those friends live within a reasonable distance and we have the opportunity to meet up outside of blog events. During the October half-term break, I met up with the lovely Mel from Le Coin de Mel and we got to meet each other’s children for the first time too.… Read more
Every eighteen months or so, our church organises a weekend away. It’s a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, time to reflect on our faith and to build friendship. For the girls, it was mostly about having time to do crafts and to have fun outdoors and getting to be with our extended church family.… Read more
