To Be 5 Years Old And Just simply Believe! 

To be five years old like my twins must be wonderful. The innocence of a child is still there, none of the harsh realities of life have in any way clouded their thoughts. Life is actually very easy. You get to be a kid and you believe in all the magical, wonderful, completely mythical ideas in the world, but hey ho, that’s ok. You are only five, plenty of time for growing up. My twin girls are five years old and we have visited Father Christmas at West Midland Safari Park (you can read my full review here), and it’s… [Read More]

Santa Safari:Our Family Christmas Trip to West Midland Safari Park 

One of our favourite places to visit for a day trip as a family is without a doubt, West Midland Safari Park. So when I was asked to bring the family along to experience their Santa Safari, it was an immediate, “Yes, I would love to!” When you have five year old twin girls who completely and totally believe in Santa it’s quite simply magical.

It made me realise I have been doing the annual visit to see Santa for a long time and I’m not sure I’m aging too well, but OMG! Five children gives you grey hairs!

I did suggest we go together to get that all important memory, but recieved a very blank look and… [Read More]

Santa Please Stop Here Canvas Review 

One Christmas tradition that all of my five children have always loved doing is putting up the Santa please stop here sign. Even my eldest at 21 years of age still believes and has to make sure it’s put up, haha! Recently I was sent the most unique and very cool Santa please stop here signs from Karen over at Love Your Home Interiors.
