We are super excited that in a few weeks we are off to see the girls favourite piggies in Peppa Pig’s Surprise tour.   The Peppa Pig live stage show, Peppa Pig’s Surprise, is currently on tour and is visiting theatres across the UK & Ireland until this autumn in 2016.

On Monday we ventured down to London for a sightseeing tour with Charlie in which we crammed a lot in for the 26 hours we were in the big smoke (and didn’t my feet know about it!)     We live in a small town with a bus that goes hourly to the next closest “big” town and the service stops at 5pm and doesn’t run on a Sunday at all! The closest train station is a 30 minute drive so it’s safe to say we very rarely go on public transport as it’s so dire and far away, so when we…

I spent a lot of time in London when I was younger but haven’t been sightseeing for about 20 years so I thought it would be lovely to take Charlie and show him around. The husband and I talked and decided that we would go just the three of us. Charlie can sometimes get a little overlooked when we have the girls so we thought we would make the trip all about him. We were very lucky that the lovely folk at Travelodge offered us to stay with them as the one thing Charlie really wanted to do was go on the…

After reading Jocelyns post it really got me thinking about my “if I could” things. I love questions like this, it’s fun to pretend and kinda like the if I won the lottery question!   If I could live anywhere: Dorset. It honestly is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to and there’s just so much to see and do. I’ve never seen such beautiful scenery it’s just stunning. We went again this year and had such a fantastic time. No trip is complete without a day at Monkey World which is why the love affair with…

Unless you live under a rock you will see that we are in the grips of a ruddy heat wave. Not just a few hot days A  HEAT WAVE people – this is not a drill. Along with your make up, deodorant and ability to walk upstairs without keeling over, our rationale goes with it. Just as with the snow as soon as that Mercury starts climbing us Brits go a little bit loco and start having crazy ideas such as: Look into getting air con installed in your house because a couple of days a year warrants this thousand of pounds…

I have previously blogged about things that I found essential during when having twins but only last week did I realise just how precious having our pushchair has been. When the girls were born we had a large bulky travel system which was brilliant as they could lie flat as tiny babies and the system also had the ability to clip the car seats onto the frame which coupled with car seat bases made the school run SO much simpler. But as they grew we knew we would need a stroller which was more lightweight and less bulky. I have to…
