Jelly The Horse

One of Darcie’s favourite things to do is to create things. She always gravitates towards the art area at preschool and at home you can usually find her sitting up at the dining room table making some new, amazing creation. Drawing, painting, making junk models – she loves it all. I have a folder where I keep all (most)  of her creations safe. I love that we can flick back through it together and it always makes me laugh how amazed she is to see her previous masterpieces with fresh eyes, gasping and saying ‘wow’. As much as it’s lovely to be able to do this and to have it all stored safely away, I know that in the future and as she grows lots of it will get forgotten. It’s easy to overlook a piece of paper, no matter how much joy went into creating the masterpiece it holds. (more…)

What To Do In & Around Hampshire In Autumn & Winter 2019

Ahh Autumn! Some love it, some hate it, some love to hate it, but I think that we can all agree that autumn definitely brings lots of lovely things with it. Knitwear, pumpkin spice lattes, pretty coloured leaves and also a whole new season-load of fun things to do. As much as I love a summer’s day out to the beach, there’s always something really special about an autumn festival, bonfire night and the arrival of the Christmas Markets. I know some of you will be cringing at the mention of Christmas, however every year I wish I had been more organised with planning days out  so that’s why I wanted to put this list together now! So that we can all be super organised autumn/winter queens and sail through these next few months gracefully. Who am I kidding? Graceful and organised are really not words I would use to describe myself – but like every year – I shall try my best! (more…)

Prams & The Underground | What You Need To Know

I’ve always loved a trip to London. For as long as I can remember day trips to London have been a big part of my life and when I went to university (for a year, but we don’t need to talk about that) I seized the chance to go and live in my favourite city. So as you can imagine, the underground really is second nature to me. For someone who has a terrible sense of direction I find it an easy system to navigate – it really is as simple as just following the signs. However when we started our own family, something was holding me back from visiting my favourite place. As much as London will always feel like a second home to me, I didn’t know how to navigate the city with a baby in tow. I’d never paid any attention to lifts or accessible routes, so the thought of a day out with the pram was more than a little daunting. As I have grown this blog, invites to London have become increasingly frequent and one day I decided I was done with turning down these invitations out of fear. The fear was really just of the unknown and now that it is has become a regular part of out lives I have become confident on the underground with the pram and two little people in tow. (more…)

Our Trip To The Lincolnshire Wolds

~ I’m delighted to work with East Lindsey District Council for this post, our stay was gifted but (as always) all opinions are my own ~

After much deliberation about holidays at the beginning of the year, this year has turned into the year of the mini break, the ‘staycation’ and the long weekends. Previously it’s all been about the big holidays and jetting off somewhere once a year, but I’ve found that since having children, these shorter breaks are a much less stressful way of having a break and enjoying some time away from home. This year has seen us visit Cornwall, London and Guernsey so far, and next to add to the list is the Lincolnshire Wolds. A little while ago I was contacted by East Lindsey District Council to see if we would like to spend some time exploring the hidden gem that is the Lincolnshire Wolds – of course I said yes so here we are! Myself, my mum and the kids had a fantastic stay in the Wolds at the end of August and I’m so excited to tell you all about it. (more…)
