A Little Babymoon in Hampshire…
I think technically a babymoon is a made up word. Or at the very least, it is a word used to describe a couple going off and relaxing somewhere just the two of them before the birth of their baby. With two little girls already in our lives, that was never going to happen. But we did decide to...

A Trip to Somerset- The Moonraker and The White Hart Hotel.
I love nothing more than getting away for a few days with my little family. Just forgetting about the stresses of work, or housework, or just general day to day life. When we are at home we have our own little structures and routines that mean the days pass quickly, especially now Mads is at school and we don't...

A Trip to Darwin Forest
A couple of weekends ago we picked up Mads from school and headed off on the couple of hour journey to the Peak District for a short break in a beautiful place called Darwin Forest. The trip had been booked for a fair few weeks, but in the end turned out to be perfect timing as our kitchen was...

A Weekend in the Cotswolds with Hertz.
When I was pregnant with Mads, myself and Mr E went to the Cotswolds as a 'last' weekend away just the two of us. We stayed in a gorgeous hotel in the middle of the countryside and visited a few picture perfect quaint English villages. We had such a great time and it was one of those places that...

A Trip To Hampshire….
Our little LL is obsessed with a certain pink pig. We can be in a supermarket and she will spot the smallest bottle of Peppa Pig bubble bath and go absolutely crazy shouting 'Mummy it's Peppa, it's Peppa.' Mads loved the programme too when she was younger but she didn't quite love it as much as her little sister....

MONDAY Typically after awful weather all weekend, we finally woke up to some sunshine on Monday morning- just as we were due to be going home!   This was the gorgeous view from our...

A Weekend in Bristol- Part One….
Before we had small people in our lives, I worked in the travel industry for many years as a Marketing Account Manager for the biggest online hotel website.  Basically to cut a really long and boring story short, this meant I was responsible for all the hotels within a designated area.  My area was the South West of the...

Our Stay At The Grove: A Luxury Family Friendly Hotel, Hertfordshire.
A couple of weekends ago we headed an hour down the M1 to a beautiful country hotel just outside of Watford in Hertfordshire.  It's pretty famous as hotels go, hosting all number of celebrities, sports stars, important public figures and even royalty over the years, so it doesn't need a huge introduction, but in case you haven't heard of...
