Sunbed Stampede

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Menorca, (full holiday post will be coming later this week), but I thought this deserved a separate post of its own. Mainly because I have never in my life experienced the stampede at a time when you should still be asleep on holiday. The time in question was 6am. Yes, you read right. OMG! 6am! On our first morning I thought nothing of sunbeds because we arrived at around 11am and we decided to stay by the pool. I casually mentioned to my wife as we were walking passed the sunbeds… [Read More]

Summer Holidays Lollypops And The Sunshine: Entertaining the Kids

Six long weeks of school holidays! How do we entertain the children? Yes, it’s that age old question. We have 42 days to fill and make sure our children don’t get bored. In today’s world there is a massive emphasis on constantly trying to find things for children to do, which amazes me if I’m honest. I remember when I was a child how very little was done to entertain me. Most of the time I was left to my own devices and it was up to me to entertain myself, which in all honesty was never very difficult. I… [Read More]

My Son Is On A Lads Holiday. Oh, The Worry And Fear!

Yesterday my 19 year old son went on his first lads holiday abroad with four of his friends, and the worry and fear that is consuming me is incredible! I’m not quite sure why, but the next 7 days can’t go quick enough for me and I can’t wait until he is back home. My two oldest daughters both went on holiday abroad with their friends, and yes I was worried, but it was not the same. Girls abroad can be just as wild I know that, but girls tend to look after each other, whereas lads just don’t. Well,… [Read More]

Our Holiday To Disneyland Paris 2018 Our Last Day! Video Special!

This was it! Our final day of our holiday to Disneyland Paris 2018. The plan was to have an easy relaxed day, but of course that’s not always possible when you are on holiday at Disneyland Paris with six year old twin girls. The day was to turn out to be quite an adventure that we didn’t plan on. We were out early after breakfast at the hotel and headed out to go on a boat ride that we seemed to miss doing every day. The boat ride in question was Le Pays Des Contes De Fees. It’s a relaxing… [Read More]

Our Holiday To Disneyland Paris 2018 Day 2 & 3

On day two when I looked outside the window, I was disappointed that the weather was not the best. There were dark clouds in the sky and heavy rain forecast for lunchtime. Still we had wet weather coats and leggings and we were determined not to let the weather dampen our day. First up for the day was breakfast at Plaza Gardens with the characters. This is always awesome and the girls love having a hug with Mickey and all his friends. It’s a fantastic chance to grab photos and get the all important autograph books signed without having to… [Read More]

Our Holiday To Disneyland Paris 2018 Day 1

We have recently returned from our annual holiday and for the second year in a row we decided to go to Disneyland Paris. The difference this year is that we decided to stay for seven days against just four days last year. One of the main reasons for that was hopefully it wouldn’t be too much of a rush trying to cram everything in, because believe you me there is so much to do in Disneyland Paris. We did as we did last year and stayed overnight at a hotel for one night prior to going to the Disneyland hotel…. [Read More]

It’s Time To Treat Yourself For Once!

We need to start off by saying, there is no doubt at all that becoming a father is one of the best things that will ever happen/has happened to you in your life. The joy you’ll feel knowing that you’ve got a little boy or girl that is yours, and the love you will feel is like nothing else. From the moment they’re born, they’ll have your undivided attention, and you might think nothing of it. But as they grow, your undivided attention makes you forget about the attention that you should be giving yourself. You might walk around the… [Read More]
