A Day Trip To Wroxham Barns, Norfolk

A couple of weeks ago when John was off work we got to have a day out with some good friends which was long overdue. The weather was supposed to be nice so we planned a day to Wroxham Barns which is in Hoveton, Norfolk. Unfortunately, we don’t go here very often because we don’t drive and you can’t walk there from the Hoveton/ Wroxham train station due to there being no footpath. The weather forecast told a big fat lie and the morning was actually pretty miserable. Erin had cried during the whole 15 minute car journey and it

Weekends With The Family And A BBQ

A couple of weeks ago it was John’s birthday and we had my sister and her fiance Chris to stay for the weekend. The weather was supposed to be nice so we decided to have a BBQ. We had recently got one from Weber Compact Charcoal BBQ from Hayes Garden World so it was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Luckily, the BBQ was super easy to put together. It took me, John and Chris about 10 minutes to put together but it could easily be done if you’re on your own. The BBQ also comes with a users

How To Save Time At Home & Spend More Time As A Family

A couple of months back I quit my job at Sainsbury’s to work full time from home. It was scary as hell. Working from home means putting in a lot of hours and burning the candle at both ends some days. This doesn’t leave a lot of time for cooking and cleaning and I don’t want to spend precious time that could be spent with my family doing these things instead. I recently went on a mission to figure out how to save time at home and spend more time as a family! I have found some fantastic products to

What We’ve Been Watching: August

Welcome to What We’ve Been Watching! Here I talk about anything on TV, Netflix or films that we have been watching for the past month! August has been a bit of a strange month really for television. We have had such a busy month as a family and have had loads of people to stay so we haven’t been watching television as much as we normally would. Chappie My sister has been over to stay quite a lot recently and we have a bit of a thing about what we watch. Nearly every time she stays she makes me watch

The Best Cars For Family Road Trips

More and more families are opting for a ‘staycation’ and exploring the UK in their spare time, rather than paying expensive airfares to holiday abroad.

Here are some of the best cars for road trips. Honda Accord The Honda Accord has long been known as a road trip car, because of its reliability and the fact that it has plenty of space. The boot is large to allow room for your

The Importance Of Family Meals

Just recently Erin has been an absolute nightmare with food. She has been going through a horrible phase where she just would not eat. If that wasn’t bad enough, we’ve also had the 18 month sleep regression too! Generally, apart from a few short phases before now, she’s always been a pretty good eater. I always thought it was teething that caused this kind of thing but apparently being a toddler causes it! The not eating thing had been going on for about 2 weeks and during a visit from my sister meant us changing how we do things at

For Aisha Review & Giveaway

Back in February when Erin was getting more adventurous with food and flavours we were lucky enough to try some of the For Aisha Stage 3 pouches and Erin loved them. I was so excited when I heard that For Aisha were doing tray meals for babies aged 10 months+ I got excited! I couldn’t wait for Erin to try them.

There is no other baby food brand

A Family Trip To Banham Zoo

Last Saturday lunchtime my sister sent a message asking if we were free that night or Sunday. Her and her boyfriend hired a car for the weekend and wondered if they could come and stay. Of course, the answer was yes. I said I’d find us something to do on Sunday and we decided on Banham Zoo. John and I don’t drive so getting places like this is normally impossible for us. Banham Zoo is about an hour away from where we live so the drive there wasn’t too bad at all. Erin isn’t really used to being in a car
