Our (growing list) of best camping spots for kids

I have an aversion to holidaying in the same spot more than once – my favourite thing to do when I’m away is to get lost and explore new places so going somewhere again seems a bit dull. This trait has come in handy when friends and family have come to me for advice on…

A must see… Wilderness Woods, East Sussex

Ever had one of those weekends where everything just falls into place? Well we had one, and it was pretty darn special! We headed off all the way (1.5 hrs drive!) to East Sussex – we were blessed with being gifted a three night stay at a Treehouse at Fairoak Farm (more on that in…

7 tips for camping with kids

If anyone ever asks me whether they should take their kids camping my answer is always YES YES YES & YES. My husband and I have camped all over the world so when it came to having the kids, it was a natural thing for us to have the kids come along straight away. I’m…

The Loft @ Sparks Yard

When friends are visiting Arundel with kids, The Loft always tops my list of places to eat. We go there a lot ourselves, in fact it was the first place we ventured to after having the twins! So yes definitely a firm favourite! Sparks Yard has been a bit of an institution in Arundel, West…

Do you know what a cubby house is? My kids had no idea (probably because there hasn’t been a Peppa Pig episode about one) but then I started thinking that maybe its just an Australian thing… anyway, we made one! And it’s awesome. AND it was completely free! Unfortunately we had to say farewell to…

Well it’s June and after a run of good weather I think we can say Summer is here!! So much fun to be had – swimming, camping, fairs, road trips, adventures to enjoy and the beach is calling. We moved down to the South Coast for this very reason. Away from the hustle and bustle of…

Outfit Outcry on Strictly… And it wasn’t the dancers

Like most mums in the UK, Saturday night usually consists of a take-away and a glass of wine watching Strictly Come Dancing. God it sounds naff when you write it down, but there we are. I don’t mind, going out usually results in a god awful hangover. And I stopped being able to function with…

I am a Selfish Mother

And proud! And that’s why this post has to be one of my first. This is one of my most favourite things I’ve discovered since becoming a mum is Selfish Mother a blogzine and shop for REAL mothers. At the core of Selfish Mother is the The FMLY Store selling the coolest jumpers and tees around. Not only…

Snap Happy

Gosh pen to paper is hard! Or should that be fingers to keyboard. I’ve being documenting my life through photos and social media since it all began. But never more so than when my twin boys showed up 18 months ago. That’s when things went intergalactic. I am massively guilty of an over share. Tanith…
