đŸ’» Guess who’s got a đ—±đ—Č𝗮𝗿đ—Čđ—Č? Oh yes, that is me. Over 3 years of hard work has led me to this and I feel so proud of myself. Starting a degree during Covid and homeschooling children and working is just insane when I think back.⁣

⁣
As it’s an apprenticeship, through my employer, I still have some work to do to finish off. But my certificate is en route
 the hard work is done. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my employer giving me time to study and Hubby for giving me the space to work into the evenings and weekends. It’s a lot of time. And I will be forever grateful. ⁣
⁣
I love learning and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, as I left uni at 20 without my 𝗟𝗼𝘄 degree. It was my biggest regret leaving so close to the end. But I’ve done it now and that’s the main thing. ⁣

Our family holiday to Potters Resort #travel

We loved our trip to Potters Resort, it is situated at Hopton-on-Sea which is a place I hold close. We went to Hopton-on-sea every year with my grandparents. We loved it. So going back, I knew would be memorable. Not just because of the nostalgia but also because Potters Resort is just amazing. What do you expect from a family holiday: good food, good accommodation and entertainment/activities for the children. We had all of this in abundance at Potters Resort. VIEW the POST

Our romantic break to Suffolk #travel

We do not really get to go away together, just the two of us. We have so many responsibilities that it’s quite impossible to get away most of the time; dogs, cat, kids, football, work! The list goes on. But sometimes the worlds align and we escape to the country. Literally. We spent a beautiful weekend in Suffolk, courtesy of Suffolk Cottage Holidays, to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.

Choosing the right family cruise holiday #travel

My Mum has just got back from a cruise and it reminded me of when we went on our family cruise in the Mediterranean. There are so many aspects to cruises that I hadn’t considered until I conferred with Mum whilst looking over photos.

5 places on my wishlist for a family walking holiday #Travel

As the children are getting older, they are more capable of walking a little further and walking harder routes. Noah managed Snowdon when he was about 5 and more recently, we all conquered Mam Tor. We love exploring and so it got me thinking about my travel list and walking holidays around the world – not just in England. So, these are my top 5 places to go on a family walking holiday. 

Planning a stress free family trip to Phuket

Planning a stress free family trip to Phuket

Over the years, as the children have got older, we have realised quite how stressful planning a trip abroad can be. Everything from worrying about the cots when the children were babies, to what activities there are on offer as they get older. There are so many things to think about so I thought I would capture a few helpful tips and my chosen location is Phuket (it's on my bucket list). VIEW the POST

We were very lucky to receive a weekend break at Landal Darwin Forest (by Landal UK), up on the outskirts of the beautiful Peak District.

There is so much to do onsite we never had a dull moment and that was despite the rainy weather in July. VIEW the POST

20 outdoor activities for children in and around Cambridgeshire

It got me thinking that we do so much with the children and I do not document it all, a lot of things we do that are free too. So if you are feeling at a loose end and want to do something fun, outdoor activities and indoors, look no further. Although this is based in and around Cambridgeshire you can find similar things to do in the area of the world you live. All you need is a little imagination…

What to pack when travelling abroad with the kids

I get asked a lot about what I take with me when we are out with the kids, travelling abroad is no different. We still needs wipes, first aid kits and that all important spares of underwear for both children! But there are some things that we would take now that we didn’t know about when the children were younger, or simply they are not needed any longer.

Our holiday in Crete with SeaCrete hotels #familytravel

If you have been following my Instagram account, you will have seen from the photos and Insta stories that we recently took a trip to Crete, staying in the SeaCrete hotels. We haven’t been abroad as a family for over 18 months and we were all very excited. I love flying and exploring new places. The last holiday we went on was to Greece, we went to Kos and Noah/Isla had the dreaded chicken pox. We loved Greece though and couldn’t wait to see Crete.  VIEW the POST

How to avoid the panic of getting to the airport on time

How to avoid the panic of getting to the airport on time

I do not get anxious about many things. When it comes to flying I absolutely love it, I get far too excited and cannot contain myself. I love watching the planes all take off, trying to work out which plane is ours and clock watching until the gates open. I do, however, have one fear when it comes to flying and that is getting to the airport on time. After all of the issues I have had with booking the flights, I do not need to add to this list.

Outdoor exploring and a little make believe magic

For those of you who have read this blog for some of the 9 years of its life, you will know that when the children were younger we used to link up to Country Kids almost every week. As they have got older and we have done different things, or just been rather busy, it slowed down. With my new screen time trick though it's proving that we are getting out and having fun outdoor exploring, which I love. VIEW the POST

Our stay at Boot Cottage, Iken with Suffolk Cottage Holidays

We felt so lucky to visit Boot Cottage in Iken a couple of weeks ago. We had an amazing weekend chilling in the Suffolk Countryside. As staycations go, it was by far a memorable one. Suffolk Cottage Holidays are all about the countryside cottages to encourage outdoor fun with families and that's exactly what we got. If I could of moved in forever, I think I would have. It was so peaceful, it was great to emerge myself into the present, mindfulness at it's best. VIEW the POST
