Dinosaurs, Days Out and Getting Crafty #littleloves

We’re nearing the end of the second week of the Easter holidays here. We’ve all so enjoyed the lazy mornings. The days out and even the days doing nothing in particular at home. The weekend started with a trip to the beach. We’ve been to the bookshop, tried out different cafes in the little seaside…

My Family Adventures in March

Ah March. You were a weird month. One minute it looked as though Spring was on the horizon. The next it started snowing. Again. But I guess at least things weren’t boring. The little dude loved the snow. It was only the second time he’d seen it settle in England having lived abroad since he…

Adventure Activities all the Family can Enjoy

Half term has rolled around again in a blink of the eye. And with it the prospect of bored kids. It needn’t be that way of course, there’s so much to do to keep them occupied and it needn’t cost the earth. Here’s a few of our favourite ways to kill some time over half…

#MyFamilyAdventures in October

October seemed to come around in a flash. And as quickly as it arrived it had gone again. Leaving us with wonderful memories. We had a wonderful half term. Lazy days in front of the tv, running around kicking fallen leaves and some fun days out. The whole month really was just lovely. We’ve explored more…

Changing schools in year 11

Changing Schools in Year 11 | GCSEs

When we moved back to the UK this year, the one thing I was most concerned by was the teen’s schooling. At 15 she would be going straight into year 11 with no former knowledge of many of the subjects she would be expected to take. It wasn’t going to be easy that’s for sure….

#MyFamilyAdventures in September

Oh so late to the party with this one. But much like September, I found this month slipped through my fingers so quickly. But, better late than never, as they say. And I was determined to get this #MyFamilyAdventures post written. September was the month both children started their new schools. In a new country….

On Safari at Port Lympne Reserve

Just before the children went back to school last week, we decided to visit Kent’s safari park – Port Lympne. It’s somewhere I visited as a child and I couldn’t wait to share with my own children. So we took advantage of the kids go free offer which was running over the summer holidays and…


Days Out, Dinosaurs and Philippa Gregory #littleloves

I’m a little late to the party with my #littleloves this week. I’ll admit I very nearly didn’t write them. But then I remembered it’s something I do for me. Something that helps me remember there are positives among the negatives and they are what I need to cling to when things are tough. August…


Freakshakes, Lego Batman and an Anniversary #littleloves

This week has been a good week. You know when you have one of those weeks when everything just seems to fall into place? (I’m intentionally not mentioning what happened on Wednesday, it certainly doesn’t count as a #littlelove that’s for sure) I think my little day out with the teen on Friday kicked off…

Lots of Films, Bowling and Poetry #littleloves

We’ve had a great few days with my mum, despite the coughs and colds that have plagued all of us over the last few weeks. We seem to have finally seen the last of them though, so that’s definitely one for the #littleloves list.
