Do you love eating and cooking outside? We do! We obviously love having a great British BBQ, but also I have always wanted an outdoor pizza oven. I love the idea of getting friends over and baking bespoke pizzas for everyone, whilst they socialise on the patio.
How many of us moan about not having enough time in the day? I know I do! If you could palm something off, what would it be? For me it would definitely be cleaning the house. I’m sure I am not the only mum that feels like that, and Bidvine may just have the answer.
The last few weeks have seen a lot of first and lasts for my children. Culminating in Oliver leaving Pre-school and Isla finishing her first year at Primary school on Friday. Everything is happening so fast, and emotionally I am struggling to keep up.
Do your kids love bugs and creepy crawlies? My little girl is not a fan, but Oliver on the other hand loves them. Whenever we go out for walks or out in the garden he insists on taking his bug hunter back pack, armed with magnifying glass and a pair of binoculars! If your kids love bugs, then why not make your own bug trap? It’s really simple and lets the kids see the bugs up close and personal.
We were lucky enough to be invited to a day at Newmarket races last Saturday to kickstart the season of their Summer Saturdays. I have been to Newmarket racecourse several times before, but never with the kids. If I’m honest I never really thought of it as a venue for a family day out. I’m pleased to say that I was wrong, and we all had a fantastic day.
We were lucky enough to be one of 100 bloggers taking part in the BritMums #PrezzoLaFamiglia challenge sponsored by Prezzo. The challenge was to celebrate the new La Famiglia sharing pasta bowl, actively encouraging family style dining and promoting the importance of eating together.
We were lucky enough to spend our half term on holiday in the Mediterranean with the kids. This was the first time the children had been on an aeroplane, but with some pre-holiday research and some careful planning it was a breeze. So here are my top tips for flying with children.
We all love days out with the family, but sometimes they can hit our wallets hard! Great family days out however needn’t break the bank. There are lots of things you can do that are fun for all the family that don’t cost the earth.
