Our Top Tips For Staying Safe In The Sun

Edit this post


You may have read our recent post about our favourite places to go on holiday, one of the things that we always plan very well for when going abroad is the heat.  Whether it be Florida, Majorca, or even at home in the UK, its always important to stay safe when the sun is out.  The last thing you want to happen on holiday to either yourself or your little ones is Sunburn.  You can lose a good few days from your holiday to the effects of sunburn and it can be easily avoided.

Favourite Holiday Destinations

Edit this post

Summer is almost upon us and for most people that means they will be heading off on their Summer holidays. Whether it's in the UK, Europe or further afield, getting away is something we all love to do. It's nice to know that we can 'switch off' for a week or two and forget about the real world and just float about in our holiday bubble. When it comes to choosing where to go we all have different ideas of the perfect holiday. Whether it's somewhere you've visited before, a recommendation from a friend or through browsing sites online, such as Clickstay.

We tend to visit places we have already been to before. We like the familiarity and also the no stress worrying whether it is okay, as we've been before. I recently asked a few blogger friends what their favourite holiday destination is and why? The results are fab and it has actually given me a few new places to take a look at.

The Gruffalo Orienteering Trail - Delamere Forest

Edit this post

A few weeks ago I was reading another blog and noticed that The Gruffalo Trail was at Delamere Forest. I was so excited because I knew little J would love hunting through the woods in search for the Gruffalo. It's been one of his favourite books for a few years now and last year he even had a Gruffalo birthday party. So last weekend we headed to Delamere Forest in search for the Gruffalo.

What Would You Choose? #ImpossibleExperiences

Edit this post

If you could do anything or go anywhere in the world what would you choose? For me it would be a family holiday to Disney World in Florida. I've dreamt about going there all my life but what if I could do something even better. What if I could create #ImpossibleExperiences. Have you ever thought "I wish I could do that?' or "If I won the lottery I would...". We have all had those thoughts at some point but what would your impossible experience be?

Our New Years Eve

Edit this post

This is a little late, but better late than never I suppose. We ended 2016 with a visit to the Liverpool Ice Festival. It's something we did a few years ago and we thought it would be nice to do it again. Both Daddy and I aren't keen on New Years Eve so a nice day out was perfect.

Planning Our Next Holiday To Cyprus

Edit this post

You may already know that we visited Cyprus in August for the 2nd time and it was amazing. Cyprus was never on my destination list until I won a holiday back in 2014. There was a huge list of places we could choose from and after months of deliberating we chose Cyprus - best decision ever. We stayed at the Malama Beach Holiday Village and it is perfect.

Our Family Fortnight - 17/09/16

Edit this post

This fortnight we have had to snap back in to the school routine quite quickly. It's back to early morning starts, school runs and homework. Before the new school term begun we did have the chance to enjoy one last weekend of the holidays, it was a wet wet one but we made the most of it. You may have already read that we headed to Blackpool for the first ever Slime Fest in the UK.

Our Family Fortnight - 03/09/16

Edit this post

The last two weeks have been very busy. We have had a few events to go and they have all been so much fun. We love heading out on little adventures, seeing and trying new things. We do try and combine the events with other fun things too, so while we attended a Netflix event we also made the most of our time in London and headed to some of the major attractions.

Car Journeys With Kids - #CarSeatConundrums

Edit this post
Kiddicare have teamed up with Dr Elizabeth Kilbey, a well known child psychologist to get her views on how to balance the need for safe driving with the need to answer the questions to make sure your child feels safe and doesn’t get upset when they can’t see you. Her view is that often the child is just reaching out for a connection. It’s easy to forget that they can’t really see you, and that they don’t have your attention. To the child they won’t realise you are completing a task that in some situations can be difficult. Often the question doesn’t need a ‘correct’ answer, just an answer so that the child can connect with you. It’s their way of making sure you are still there and still there for them even though you are doing something else.

Planning A Villa Holiday With The Kids

Edit this post
This time last year we were looking forward to our first Summer holiday abroad as a family of four. Usually we are looking at holidays a year in advance as we like to ensure we find somewhere family friendly with lots of facilities and activities to keep the boys entertained.  I love having a holiday booked but unfortunately this year we have absolutely nothing planned. Now that the days are brighter it has put me in the mood to start looking at holidays.

Our New Year Bucket List

Edit this post
I hadn't thought about writing a bucket list before as I thought a bucket list was things you wanted to do before you die. However, I have noticed that some people have seasonal bucket lists on their blogs. They write down all of the things they want to do in the following three months. We have had a little think and there are a few things we want to do so I've decided to write them down.

Malama Beach Holiday Village, Cyprus

Edit this post
Last September I won an all expenses trip to a commonwealth country by texting a special code that I found on a bottle of Rubicon. I do love my competitions and this has probably been my best win ever. The decision on where to go was a hard one. The budget was just under £5,000 and of course we would have been happy to pay more if needed as Daddy and I fancied Barbados. After weeks of thinking and checking out our options, In the end we decided to try Cyprus as we thought it would be more family friendly.

Airport Parking With BookFHR

Edit this post
I have never considered airport parking before as both of the airports we use are within driving distance. We usually get a lift to and from from airport so it wasn't something I thought would be worth paying for. We were recently asked to review BookFHR, which offers affordable airport hotel and airport parking.


After checking out the website we decided we would give airport parking a try for our Summer holiday to Cyprus.

What To Pack In A Teenager's Suitcase

Edit this post
Big J has just arrived home from his third trip abroad without us. Its so weird to think he has experienced parts of the world without us. He has been to Rue in France for 5 days, Skiing for a whole week and last week he went to Spain for 5 days.

When it came to packing his suitcase he really wasn't interested at all. I think thats a boy thing because Daddy doesn't like packing either. They both are just happy to watch me do it. I did make a list of things he needed to make it easier for him but I still ended up doing it.


First I packed his hand luggage. He didn't have much in it as the school already had his Passport, EHIC and Euros. His hand luggage just had his phone, earphones, wallet containing some english money for the airport and plane and a book.

10 Reasons Why I Love June

Edit this post
I am so excited that June has finally arrived and here is why.

1. Daddy and I had our first ever date in June. It was the 21st June which is the longest day. This year the 21st falls on Fathers Day too so it's twice as special.

Looking Back - June 2010 Central Park, New York City

2. Daddy and I were married in June. This year we will be celebrating 15 years together and 5 years married. We were married in New York City and it was the best day of my life. It was so amazing and very personal as I had always wanted to get married in New York and Daddy made my dreams come true.

Going On Holiday - How Do You Choose?

Edit this post
I was watching the boys in the garden last week and they were playing in the water. It was bright, warm and sunny and it got me thinking about our Summer holiday.
