The Easter Weekend Has Reminded Me Of The Importance Of Family

The four day Easter break has reminded me how obsessed you can become with your smart phone and social media in general. Yes I was on it over the weekend, but considerably less than what I am normally. I wanted to enjoy the weekend more as a family without a constant glance or look at my phone and that’s exactly what I did. Time with family is precious. It cannot be repeated because once those moments or milestones with your children are gone that is exactly it, they are gone forever and a photo of that moment is no substitute… [Read More]

Dino Ranger Treasure Hunt Review Easter Holiday Activities #AD

We have just started our Easter break and when you have seven year old twin girls my thoughts always turn to activities that I think the girls would enjoy. This is because when you are seven years old you just have to occupy them for every waking moment of the day. So I am always on the look out for fun and new activities we can do together. The Easter egg hunt is of course a tradition in our household, and this is great, but it would be nice to add a little bit of a different slant to the… [Read More]

As parents we definitely go the extra mile when it comes to entertaining our kids. With that being said, I think that if we are going to make sure they are having a good time and enjoying themselves, I think it’s important that the activities we do with our… [Read More]

Chocolate For Easter Is That Really What’s It All About?

Yesterday on Easter Sunday, like a lot homes up and down the UK, Easter egg hunts were in full flow, as our young children attempt to eat their body weight in chocolate, which I have to admit is partly our fault, but not entirely. There are darker forces at play here, more commonly known as supermarkets and marketing companies, and of course the chocolate brands themselves. Between them all they manage to fill the shelves in supermarkets, newsagents, and actually any shop they can with a mountain of chocolate Easter eggs. Of course this encourages us as parents and our… [Read More]

Easter Break: Summer Is Nearly Here! YAY! 

I love summertime because my job as a painter and decorator is made much easier with lovely sunny weather in planning my work and it hopefully works out on the dates I plan. Firstly though with Easter just behind us, this always makes me feel that much closer to summer and seeing the back of winter and it’s terrible weather so I thought I would give a quick update of my Easter break. The twins were definitely ready for a break from school. They had only had one week off since Christmas and it’s so easy to forget that this… [Read More]
