How A Lovely Cruise Can Improve Your Life Massively

October 25, 2019 admin 0

Are you looking to get away for a little while? Perhaps you’re looking for a short break, or maybe even something a little more significant. Well, you could do a lot worse than a cruise to a wonderful location. If you’re okay with hitting the open water on a huge boat, then a cruise would be amazing for you. Everyone that partakes in this kind of thing has a great time and would love to […]

Free Family Events at McDonald’s

October 1, 2019 admin 12

#AD Last weekend we were invited down to our local McDonald’s restaurant in Chester to experience one of their free family events and were lucky enough to be able to take not only our own boys but a few of their friends along with us too. Now McDonald’s is a well known brand and one that is usually associated with tasty food, treat teas, and Happy Meals by children and a great place for a […]

How to Ease the Stress and Anxiety of Parenting

August 21, 2019 admin 0

You don’t have to be a parent very long to learn that it’s no walk in the park. Being completely responsible for the life of another takes a significant amount of emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual effort. The love you have for your children is essentially what gets you through each day. Yet, the reality is that without a proper outlet, the stress of parenting can begin to weigh on you. Here are our top […]

Nozstock festival review

Our Nozstock festival review from 2019

July 29, 2019 admin 0

This year we have been on a few new adventures as we dipped our toes in to the world of family festivals. We started with a one day festival close to home and then tried a few different types of full blown weekend camping festival experiences and boy have we had fun along the way. Our most recent family festival experience was at Nozstock: The Hidden Valley in Herefordshire. Before we committed to any festivals […]

5 Effortless Ways You Can Stay In Touch With Your Mother

June 25, 2019 admin 0

No matter how old you get, or how many children you have, you will always be someone else’s child. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from being a mother, it’s that the bond between you and your children is so important. It helps your kids when they have a strong connection with you, and – to be honest – it helps you as well.    So, it’s sad when you get older, become a mother […]

Our first trip to Cheshire Fest

June 4, 2019 admin 12

Last weekend we took the boys to their first ever festival. We chose one that was close to home and a day event as opposed to camping so we had the option of leaving without to much hassle should we need to, it was called Cheshire Fest and was hosted at Manchester Rugby Club in Cheadle Hulme, about 40 minutes from where we live. Choosing to go to a festival with our children was one […]

Salford Museum and Art Gallery

April 15, 2019 admin 0

During the Easter holidays the boys and I were invited over to Salford Museum and Art Gallery, an attraction that is totally free to the public. Despite having visited Manchester several times and enjoying nothing more than a free day out and educational places we hadn’t even heard of the Salford museum and Art Gallery, let alone visited and if I am to be totally honest I think I would have avoided it as the […]

The Wizard of Oz at St.Helens Theatre Royal 2019

April 7, 2019 admin 1

Last night we went to watch the opening night of The Wizard of Oz at St.Helens Theatre Royal, our favourite place for pantomimes and once again we spent the evening belly laughing from start to finish. I always worry that there will come a time when these pantomimes will start to feel a bit samey samey as we go as regularly as we can and yet each time I leave feeling shocked at how they have […]

How to avoid money worries over the summer holidays

July 20, 2018 admin 0

The summer holidays are due to start this weekend, for some they have already started and for the odd couple they start next week but whenever the schools break up the concerns of the parents going into the 6 weeks are the same. How will we entertain our children for 6 consecutive weeks? How will we juggle work and childcare for 6 weeks? How will we fund all this?   For the majority of parents […]
