Last week I had the chance to join in with a Photo Walk in Shoreditch as part of the ‘Blogtacular’ blogging event. It’s an event that I’ve watched from the social media sidelines before and have always been keen to attend.

Feeding the animals. Days Out Guide / Maidenhead / Reviews

I often wonder what the Little Lady will be when she grows up. Instead of having a room full of dolls, she has already amassed a bed full of cuddly animals that she treasures dearly. (Woe betide me if I try and steal any away!) So when Odds Farm invited me to visit in return for a feature on the blog, I was keen to...

Peppa Pig Live: Perfect Family Fun Days Out Guide / Family Friendly / Reviews

Two children, up, dressed and fed and two parents showered, dressed, breakfasted and ready to go by 9am on a Saturday morning. What was I thinking?! How on earth could this ever be filed under ‘fun family things to do at the weekend?!’ But I shouldn’t have had doubt. ‘Peppa Pig Live’ at the Wycombe Swan didn’t disappoint.

Half term in Maidenhead Days Out Guide / Family Friendly / Maidenhead

October Half Term in Maidenhead. This October will be the last half term that I can go into ‘hibernation’! Seeing as I have a pre-schooler, Half Term for me usually means that we see our usual local parks and recreational spaces get twice as busy as usual. We tend to chill out at home rather than battle with the crowds. But, just because I don’t...

Yep, the Humphries girls have been on tour, discovering pretty parks and bike friendly paths in...

A festive Christmas Carriage ride in Windsor Days Out Guide

Baby’s first Christmas in 2012 Our little lady was two and a half last month. I won’t bore you with the standard ‘hasn’t she grown!’ and ‘hasn’t time flown!’ comments now.  (Although if you’re wondering, yes, she’s now bigger than she was in 2012… and yes, time has flown but it has also seemed like a lifetime- I can’t remember what life was like without...

A mini Winter adventure, just ten minutes from home. Days Out Guide

This afternoon, the Little Lady and I headed over to Harehatch Sheeplands Garden Centre to join in the launch party for their new ice skating area.  For those of you that haven’t yet been to Harehatch, I should warn you that ‘Garden Centre’ is probably not the right word to use, its more of an emporium, with an eclectic mix of plants, a mini farm (including goats...

But let me assure you, in the same way that when you were little there were crazy saturday morning TV shows full of fun, games and exuberant TV presenters, for our little ones there are real life, neon headband wearing ladies that bring fun, singing and playtime to...
