Instagram #marchmeetthemaker challenge

We’ve been in Cornwall for almost a month now. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, not only¬† have we been trying to make feel like home, we also had to build a wall in our workshop to re-instate His ‘n’ Her’s sides, we managed without a wall for a week or two but the […]

First Family Festival

Hooray!! We survived our first family festival! We only went as day trippers so it doesn’t really count – but we would have camped if it was an option. In a passed life I was regular ‘Festival-er’ but since setting up a business, getting married and becoming a mum it all kind of went on […]

Family time in France

After our recent disaster of a holiday you might think I would be more than hesitant about boarding another plane less than two weeks later. But that’s exactly what we did. From the age of three I spent every Summer in France. I have fantastic memories of those long hot summers; eating boiled pigs trotters […]

Dream holiday / total nightmare

After hours (and hours) of deliberation, contemplating locations, flight combinations and resorts. Calculating every last penny to get the very best deal for our hard-earned cash. Planning a holiday can be stressful business, there are seemingly infinite choices to consider and now we have a child’s wants and needs thrown into the pot, along with […]

June 2016 playlist

Here’s my bumper playlist for June. We’ve had a few long car journeys over the last few weekends, two to North Yorkshire and one to Cleethorpes so this playlist is 50 tracks of car driving joy, you may prefer it on shuffle!

LyvedenALIVE!

¬† Earlier in the year we joined The National Trust. The decision was made after a family half term trip to Cornwall, where virtually everywhere we visited (even some of the car parks) would have been free had we been National Trust members. I think in the end it was a particularly special jacket potato […]

September in Photo’s: Instagram Round up

September was another great month! I got another year older (booo) but it wasn’t all bad. I visited some great places (old and new). The little one went back to school (and is loving her new teacher – phew), so I got the chance to work on some new products and not forgetting I cracked […]

Playlist September 2015

It’s been a weird few weeks with many highs and lows. I went on my first ‘alone’ major trip in my new car last week to South Wales. The round trip was a few hundred miles, so I found myself in the alien situation of having several hours to myself with no one to talk […]

UK in a Day: Butlin’s Bognor Regis

I will forever have a soft spot for Bognor. Nineteen years ago, around about now, I was working as a store detective at All Days Supermarket in Butlin’s Holiday Camp. Myself, Steve (of pottery painting fame) and another friend went on holiday to the Bognor Regis holiday camp for a week after our final A […]
