🐰 A little sneak peek of the Peter Rabbit Santa’s Grotto at the centre:mk. Santa asked Peter Rabbit and his woodland friends to help him this year and it was just amazing. The theatrical, fun and interactive experience made visiting the #grotto just perfect. We all had so much fun.

We are huge Beatrix Potter fans, I loved it. The actresses and actors involved were just incredible! Engaging and captivating. Peter Rabbit even got Daddy singing solo in front of everyone.

Overall it’s about half an hour, I don’t want to ruin it too much but you meet Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin and Mr Todd. All before meeting Santa. You decorate gingerbread biscuits and the kiddies also received a present too.

You can only book tickets for your household or social bubble. Temperature checks are done before you enter and everyone is kept at a social distance. Which made us feel completely safe. As long as government guidance doesn’t change, it’s open until 24th December 2020.

If you’re near Milton Keynes I would definitely recommend it for the family. We did a bit of shopping and had a family meal too. We made a night of it.

#gifted @centremk thank you for having us this evening.

🐰 A little sneak peek...

I love this photo. Wintery days on the beach is my favourite. We usually go for a Winters walk around New Year. There’s just something about the fresh sea air and crisp frozen sand.

But this photo sums it up. Big smiles. Happy. Carefree. Fun family adventures.

I wish my house backed on to the beach, wouldn’t it be amazing if you’re #garden was the beach? Or you had your own private stretch of beach. It would just be amazing.

We’re not far from the beach, but I do wish we lived a bit closer. One day. That’s the dream!

We used to live half an hour from the coast, reflecting back we didn’t make use of it as much as we should’ve. Maybe there’s a lesson in there for me!

Anyone else have the same dreams?

I love this photo. Wintery...

I’m finally saying goodbye to Autumn. Well, in the living room in any case. A #change is as good as a rest. As they say. The Autumnal goodies have gone back in the loft and the festive decor has been installed. I can’t wait to show off the tree and my beautiful mantle. Albeit it will be shared online only 🤣.

I had a good clean before I put the decs up. I always have a thorough clean and the Blade4 is just perfect. She is so handy, battery powered and very powerful.

It picks all the pet fur up, it leaves the floor clean and not only that, it leaves those wonderful vacuum marks on the carpet! We all strive for that don’t we?

@vaxcleanhome have a new range: Blade4, Glide and SpotlessGo. They all share the same battery so you can swap them around. I can’t wait to show you each product. The Glide is amazing and every house with hard floors needs one.

Who else likes to do a deep clean before putting up the decorations?

I’m finally saying goodbye to...

🌊 “Not all those who #wander are lost.” J.R.R.Tolkien.⁣
⁣
I love this quote and it is so true. We sometimes 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 aimlessly without purpose, never lost, just exploring the surroundings. I love that when we go on holiday we always 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐞 where we are staying.⁣
⁣
It’s also nice that when we walk, we talk. The kids chat about things they wouldn’t normally talk about and we have quite random conversations as a family.⁣
⁣
Noah was feeling sad today. It wasn’t nice seeing him emotional. Daddy took him for a walk and they talked about his feelings. His girlfriend has broken up with him and he’s really sad. Daddy tried to reassure him that he’ll probably have lots of girlfriends. His reply was “but I don’t want lots of girlfriends”. He breaks my heart with his big 𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬. 🥰 He is going to be a very loving and caring husband one day.⁣

❄️ Welcome December! Here are...

And, just like that... they walked away from November. It’s gone really quickly considering. We’ve had lots of family adventures along the way and it’s also been a time of reflection.

This photo is from a trip to the #forest last year. I loved this location.  Darwin Forest was just beautiful and I can’t wait to explore it some more next year.

I’ve seen lots of inspiration over the weeks, places to explore in the UK with the family. I am looking forward to 2021 and planning lots of adventures.

Do you have any UK locations you want to explore next year?

Something a little #different than my usual bright blue skies. This was a perfect storm brewing, travelling very quickly towards us. The #sunshine was beaming down on us from behind. It was very surreal.

Have you ever been in that position where you have sun on one side and dark grey storms on the other? It’s amazing how they contrast.

As much as I love this photo. Seeing the kiddies having fun, it does bring the memories of what happened 10 minutes later: we got caught in a hail storm. It was horrible. We all got soaked through... even the dogs were shaking! Needless to say I got the family waterproof trousers the following day!

Typical English weather... I should have been more prepared! Are you an embrace any weather kind of family or only on the good days?

Personalised gifts this Christmas with GiftsOnline4U

Personalised gifts this Christmas with GiftsOnline4U

Sometimes I struggle with Christmas present ideas for family, namely because they have everything they want these days. You can buy things so easily and conveniently online that people just grab what they want, when they want it. The idea of something personalised, is not only more thoughtful but it is something that they won't have already! I jumped for joy when GiftsOnline4U sent me 2 products to review.  Here are my top choices of personalised gifts this Christmas:  VIEW the POST

Keeping things personal: the best bespoke gifts this holiday season

The holidays are coming and now is the time that you should start focusing on getting gifts together for your family, friends, and other loved ones. But nowadays, so many things are  produced en mass that it can be difficult to find something that is just right for its intended recipient. So how do you go about keeping things personal? A unique gift shows that lots of thought, effort, and time have been put into the gift buying process. It shows that you had the person in mind when buying rather than picking up the first thing that you came across. The answer: bespoke gifts. Here are a few for you to consider in the lead up to the festivities.

Do you have a family Christmas tradition that you do each year?

Do you have a special Christmas tradition in your family over the festive period or something that you always do and have always done. AO.com challenged me to think about ours recently, it got me all excited for Christmas. Friends of ours all have their “ways” of celebrating Christmas and some of them are so different from ours. It’s amazing how many different things people do for Christmas. We have a few little traditions that go on in our family and if you are just starting out on your journey of parenthood they might come in handy…
