Here are my tips on making the most out of your day at Paultons Park.

I love a bucket list, most of the time I do not write them down. I am one of those people that until the very last moment, everything is an opportunity. Recently I have been thinking about family festivals. We have only experienced this once with the children. It wasn’t a music festival or anything, it was Blogstock.

Even without a designated board game or special building materials, kids tend to find ways to build things out of whatever they can find. Thus, to keep their hands out of mischief and give yourselves something cool to do as a family, consider the following seven kinds of building projects that are kid-friendly:

You will almost certainly need a go to jacket for the children. This British weather can never be a guarantee and we always carry weatherproof jackets in the car. Berghaus recently launched a new range of jackets for children aged 3-13 and they sent Noah & Isla matching jackets to review, you can find their range of kids clothing on the Blacks website.
For the best part of September, I have heard “Now they’re both at school are you enjoying all of your spare time?” or questions similar to that. I suppose the assumption is my only job is being Mum. I have to really think about my answer, as I don’t want to come across rude. But I am not just Mum. Obviously I am wife, daughter, grand-daughter, niece, sister, auntie and pet owner. But also, I work. I am an employee, a manager and also a civil servant. Not forgetting blog owner, social media addict and photographer of sorts. I am a working Mum and proud of it too.
