How to find your joy on a child-free weekend

Life is fast paced hustle and bustle, all day, every day, when you have children. They become your entire life. Everything you do either involves them, is for them, or they have to come along because there’s nowhere else for them to go. You finally have a weekend all to yourself, and now, you just don’t really know what to do. Try and remember how to do life without kids, and work some joy into your weekend with a mixture of relaxing and fun activities. Here are some great ideas for a child-free weekend. VIEW the POST

Weekend wonder – planning out an exciting family day trip

Weekend wonder – planning out an exciting family day trip

Life with children is one adventure after another. Sometimes just cooking breakfast on a Sunday morning feels like all the adventure I need for the whole week!

A family holiday on a farm to remember #travel

Picture this: beautiful stone cottage, warm & toastie, welcome box on the table full of goodies, hot tub bubbling in the distance. That was what greeted us when we turned up to our little staycation recently. It was amazing. We arrived late on a Friday night after a long drive and it was so welcomed. We then spent the rest of the weekend tending to animals, exploring, adventures and socialising. If you are looking for a family holiday in the UK this year then this is the place for you, North Hayne Farm Cottages, in Devon. VIEW the POST

Me & Mine: April 2015

I am a little late off the mark with getting April’s family photo online, but alas it is still online! Story of my life at the moment. April has been really busy: work, holidays, children’s nursery, children growing up, hubby’s fitness program and somewhere in-between all of that day to day life. We did manage to get out into the woods over Easter and got some lovely photos and a family shot. The children are getting better and better at not posing properly, or they tag team – one will smile whilst the other looks away and vice versa. I am sure they do it on purpose.
