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]

Family Day At The Beach

Last Saturday we decided to go to a beach which is about a 30 minute drive from where we live. The beach is well known for its big waves so is very popular with surfers. It is also well known for its abundance of rock pools which was the main reason we went yesterday. It was a chance for the girls to try out their new fishing nets in the rock pools, and hopefully catch a few crabs, or fish. Well we did catch a few fish, but the crabs never appeared! We didn’t actually see one, let alone catch… [Read More]

I’m On The Chad Valley Play Panel #GoodToGo

The sun is shining which means it’s time to get out in the garden! I have teamed up with Chad Valley and Argos which means that I’m part of their #PlayPanel. As such my children get to try out some of the Chad Valley outdoor toy range, and as you will see they are having a fantastic time checking out all of the great toys. The campaign is all centred around getting outdoors in the garden with your children and enjoying the sunshine, or least trying to when we are dodging the raindrops! It is after all the UK, haha!… [Read More]

Must Visit Places on the French Riviera

The elegant and scenic strip of coastline called Cote d’Azur extended from Saint Tropez to Menton near the border with Italy. Cote d’Azur translates as Coast of Blue, known as the French Riviera, got its name from the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. This lovely tourist destination buzzes with energy during the vacation season and is popular as a playground for the famous and rich people who own extravagant vacation villas on the coast and stunning yachts docked in the harbours. World-class restaurants, private beaches, five-star hotels, and French Riviera home rentals make the place elegant and prestige. Laze under a… [Read More]

Making The Most Out Of Your Garden This Summer

Your garden, I believe should be enjoyed during the warm summer months, especially if you live in the UK, where the sun can disappear as quickly as it appears. I have always try to minimise the amount of work that is required in the garden. After all I’d rather spend my time playing with the kids in the garden, or sunbathing. Actually there is no chance of that with six year old twins. All I ever hear is “Dad! Come over hear! Let’s play this game or football!” It’s never ending. Sunbathing? Not a chance haha! With my job of… [Read More]

It’s Time To Get Out In The Greenhouse. Summer Is Here

As we enter the month of May, it can mean only one thing. Summer is nearly here! This ultimately means we can all start getting out into the garden on a more regular basis. Basking in the UK’s glorious sunshine, well sometimes! I’m sure you know what I mean! In our home this is great news because we have six year old twin girls who love nothing more than spending most of their time in our garden playing game and running around! However, they also love gardening with mummy and daddy. The most important part of having a successful garden… [Read More]
