Funk The Format – Brighton’s party of the summer!



Nottinghill carnival 1995

1995 happy days



It’s not often a legend turns up in your local park.

Living in Brighton we’re pretty lucky to have had a fair few legends pass through our fair city. But when do you get the chance to see TWO absolute legends in your own back yard?

I’m more than a little bit excited about this year’s FUNK THE FORMAT in Hove Park this June and I have a pair of tickets up for grabs for one of you.

All hail! England’s Medieval Festival! WIN

 warwick castle familyAnd now for something completely different…

We love a good castle in our family. The kids are fascinated by history and when we are not camping in a field somewhere or at a festival we spend lots of time visiting historic sites around the UK. There’s something truly magical about exploring an old ruin steeped in history, or finding out about Kings and Queens of old and the gruesome past hidden in a dungeon.

fancy dress clothesHow much fancy dress is too much?

I don’t remember having fancy dress as a child. Perhaps that’s why I am so addicted to collecting it these days.

WIN a Heat Holders winter bundle

kids in heat holders blanket and socks Has everyone given in to the heating yet?

I have a bit of a fixation with the 1st of November and can’t pack the flip flops away till then.

Now that winter is well and truly on it’s way and our last camping trip is done, we are settling in for the dark days. Snuggling down in front of the fire and getting cosy till we can be in a sunny field somewhere again.

Counting the days…

WIN a divinely decadent food hamper

Yum yum.

We’ve just returned from our second camping trip this year. Turned out to be a rather wet weekend watching the rain run down the windows, but there was still fun to be found.

Just as we were packing to leave there was a knock at  the door.

No, not another political party or religious enthusiast as expected. Some lovely sole had sent me a mystery parcel. We threw it in the back of the van and set off.

WIN tickets to Funk The Family Festival

funk the family logoOK, perhaps 7 festivals last year was greedy, but we just can’t get enough of lazing in a field somewhere on a sunny afternoon. Some brilliant music, cold cider in hand, surrounded but smiley happy people while the kids play.

But all the camping can get a little exhausting, especially if the weather isn’t perfect. So this year we may try to reign it in a little, (just a little).

WIN a Greener Cleaner Spring Cleaning pack

flip flopsI saw my first bumble bee this week.

That’s enough for me to know SPRING is here. The flip flops are out and I have started throwing open the doors and windows at every possible opportunity. Time to dust off the cobwebs, shake out the rugs and finally give the windows a wash. I can no longer use the rain as a good enough reason for the chocolate and snot smeared windows.
