Best family festivals

hunny cool cIt’s grey and cold outside and I am dreaming of a field somewhere. Worry free long sunny days surrounded by gorgeous vibes and happy faces.

To cheer myself up I decided to write about my Top Family Festivals of 2014 and remember some of my most special moments last summer while on the road with Festival Kidz. Continue reading ‘Best family festivals’

Champagne, pies and hot tubs

Elderflower Fields 2014 view

We spent last weekend at Elderflower Fields Family Festival at it’s beautiful new home in Ashdown Forest.

I’ve written about what quality Sussex family fun the festival is in 2012 and in 2013 about letting our flock fly free and spreading their little wings exploring and experiencing this great event.

Although Elderflower Fields is very much billed as the focus being ‘all about the kids’ this year I decided that us grown ups weren’t going to miss out.

Gone but not forgotten

van horse

I have been really quite for a week or so as I have been getting over a loss.

It sounds ridiculous I know.

But anyone who knows us will understand how much we loved the thing we have said goodbye to.

Freedom HA HA

ImageNow that we are firmly back in the ‘real’ word of school, work and all that other boring stuff my heart is starting to sink a little. The seasons are changing and someone has already mentioned to dreaded ‘C’ word.

So I thought I’d cheer myself up on this wet and dreary day and reminisce about where our amazing summer holiday started this year.

Term time holidays? What’s a mum to do?

ImageIt’s a moral dilemma I’m sure every parent has faced over the years so why did I find it so hard?

We have decided to visit my sister next year. She lives on the other side of the world so it’s not a family holiday we are going to do very often. In fact, it’s unlikely that we are going to make it again during the time my kids are still at school.

10 tips to enjoy (or survive) festivals with KIDS!

daisy babyOur kids have grown up at festivals.

It’s certainly a challenging experience with little ones especially if the weather’s bad.
More endurance than enjoyment.
But still we do it.
Come rain or shine.
We keep going back for more.
There is nothing quite like it.

WE LOVE IT!

And relax…(all-inclusive holidays)

After a super relaxing holiday with the kids (yes, you heard me right, WITH the kids and RELAXING) we returned last week feeling deservedly rested.

This year has been tough. Much as I love my adorable 2 year old, she is, what some refer to as ‘challenging’.

Pontins – not for the faint hearted

Well, my very first blog. Inspired by my amazing friend Maddie who is (and always will be) way ahead of me in the world of technology.
outsideI somehow managed to talk some friends in to a weekend at Pontins Camber Sands. £39 for a family of 4. Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a bargain hunter but this was ridiculous – £3.25 per person per night. Right?
