Things to do in London

Living only 45 minutes away from London means we are lucky enough to be able to enjoy amazing days out with little travel involved. London is an amazing city and I have visited many times by myself and with the family. There are so many things you can do whether you are a family, single or looking for a romantic break away. From going to see Shrek, seeing London from the London eye, or going to one of the many free museums there really is something to suit anyone of any age. Last year we visited the Shard for Doug’s… View Post

Bottle Feeding the Lambs

Last week we took a trip to our local farm where the little baby lambs had been born. The kids were so excited and couldn’t wait to see the baby lambs, luckily there were lots of babies and the kids were so excited to bottle feed one. Not only were there lambs but we saw pigs and goats and the kids got to brush a pony. Cant say Little Man was too into that but it was cute and the pony loved all the attention and brushing it was getting. We arrived at 1230 pm and it wasn’t actually feeding… View Post

Difficulty deciding on a bedroom colour scheme

A lot of you will know that we moved home in October 2017 and we are yet to decide on a colour scheme for our bedroom. Currently it is lilac with a purple shiny main wall and it really is way to much for us. I have been concentrating on the boys bedrooms since moving in as they were pink and purple, both of these have now been finished and I am over the moon with how they have turned out. I let each of the boys decide on their colour scheme with no direction from me and they look… View Post

Growing Organically at Home

However, the downside to organic buying is that is can become very expensive. Thankfully, it is actually possible to grow your own organic produce at home in your garden and greenhouse. With some easy steps, you can begin organically growing anything from salads,… View Post

We have been so lucky to work with Discover Newmarket for the past couple of years. This Easter we were invited to an Easter event at Palace house and the kids were really EGGcited…. booom booom!

Our eldest loves anything like this and he helped his little brother who was just a bit too young at 3 years old. We arrived around lunch time and headed straight off to get lunch… View Post

Childproofing the kitchen

The arrival of little ones can be one of the most exciting, yet nerve-racking times. Parents worry about everything from dressing their babies warm enough, to ensuring the house is a safe haven. Although it is important to make your house safe for children, it does not need to be a stressful task. As the room we spend the most of our time in socialising, cooking and eating, the kitchen tends to be the first target on a parents’ child-proofing mission. That is why I have written down some great tips and good habits to help you turn the kitchen… View Post
