Erin LOVES fish. Ever since we took her to the Sealife London Aquarium a couple of months ago she has been obsessed. When we had to opportunity to go to another Sealife, I jumped at the chance. We made the most of this too and had a family day trip to Great Yarmouth. Although we arrived at about 11am on a weekday, Sealife Great Yarmouth was pretty busy! There must have been 2 or 3 school groups visiting at the same time as us. However, we got through the entrance quickly and had a couple of photos taken before heading
Sometimes I get an email in my inbox that really makes me happy. Just recently, an email titled ‘Exciting News From Johnson’s’ came in. Johnson’s got in touch to tell me about an update regarding their Alliance Partnership with the Royal College of Midwives. Certain JOHNSON’S® products now have a ‘Supported by RCM’ logo on pack. The RCM believes that the research and science behind the JOHNSON’S® products which have the RCM logo is strong and evidence-based, although the RCM does not endorse any specific products or brands. As a parent, it’s really hard to chose which products to use. This doesn’t only
I have been to London quite a lot already this year and it’s only June, with another trip booked for a couple of weeks time. I really hate staying in the same hotels in London because there is so much choice. One of our recent stays was in the ibis Styles London Kensington. The ibis Styles London Kensington is situated a 5 minute walk away from Earl’s Court tube station so it is really accessible from anywhere in London. Earl’s Court is also an accessible station which made things a hell of a lot easier having Erin with us. Our
Over the past year we have been to Turtle Bay, Norwich for a few different meals. John is mad about their jerk ribs so we love to go back when we can. Just recently Turtle Bay have revamped their menu and we were invited to try out some of the new flavours. We went for our meal on a Sunday lunchtime at 11:30. Erin tends to get hungry very quickly when we’re out and about so I didn’t want to make her wait ages for lunch. For our starter John and I ordered the Vital Veggie Platter. John is trying
It seems as though I’ve been to London a hell of a lot recently and actually, I have compared to how much I normally go. Back in April I went for a couple of days away without John or Erin. I chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Park Royal which is in North Action. Being located in North Acton means that the hotel is not in the centre of London. The good news though is that you can get the tube to North Acton station and you’re looking at about a 20 minute journey from Leicester Square area.
At the beginning of April John, Erin and myself headed off to Cambridge for a last minute weekend away. When I say last minute, I mean I booked it the evening before we went. Not like me at all. Having never been to Cambridge before I had no idea where to stay by my sister recommended the ibis Cambridge Central. The ibis Cambridge Central can be found right at Cambridge Train Station so it’s in a fantastic location is this is how you’re traveling. From here you have about a 15 minute walk into the center of Cambridge. I didn’t
Having been to a couple of other Hard Rock Cafe restaurants elsewhere (Rome and Orlando) John and I thought it was a bit strange that we’d never been to Hard Rock Cafe London. We were in London a couple of weeks ago so we had the perfect opportunity! We arrived at close to 12pm when we thought the restaurant would be packed. Although it was getting busy there wasn’t a wait for a table and we had plenty of choice of where we could sit. We were seated quite close to the toilet and baby changing which was perfect as
John and I got married in Florida in 2013. While we were there we went to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and it was so much fun. We recently had the opportunity to visit Ripley’s London and we couldn’t wait! Ripley’s London can be found smack bang in the middle of Piccadilly Circus. When we arrived Erin had just fallen asleep! Typical and very bad timing. However, we were heading home that day so we couldn’t wait for her to wake up and it’s a good job we didn’t as she ended up sleeping through our whole visit to Ripley’s!
