Guest Post: Tips For Flying With Children

My name is Vicky and I blog at www.misstillyandme.co.uk with my 8-year-old daughter. She is an avid traveller and has become such a little expert at it, even though she is at such a young age. You can follow our travel stories on our family blog or on www.tillystravellingtelegram.co.uk. Today we are lucky to be guest posting on this blog and we wanted to share some tips on travelling on an aeroplane with kids. You can also find us on Instagram and Facebook Always pre-book plane seats Although this is an extra cost to the price of your holiday, it’s

Restaurant Review: COSMO Norwich

AD | Complimentary meal provided John and I love eating out but now that we have Erin choosing a restaurant isn’t always so easy. Erin doesn’t really do well with restaurants because she hates to be sat still. Anywhere we go she lasts about 2 minutes on her chair before wanting to explore, dance or generally create a bit of madness. Waiting for the food to arrive can turn into an absolute nightmare and John and I end up more stressed out than anything else. We were recently invited to try COSMO Authentic World Kitchen in Norwich which sounded ideal

5 Benefits Of Adding A Conservatory To Your Home

AD | Collaborative post When we bought our house nearly 5 years ago we did so knowing that we had a bit of extra space outside and we might not actually need it all. We have a fairly nicely sized patio area to the side of our kitchen which follows on to a really large lawn. A lot of the time, the back end of our house doesn’t really work for us and while we can’t afford to extend, a conservatory could be a more affordable option. Here are 5 benefits of adding a conservatory to your home: Increase the

Kiddimoto Kurve Balance Bike And Helmet Review

AD | Gifted Items Erin wanted a bike pretty much as soon as she walk. She saw other children on theirs and desperately wanted to be the same. Up until recently Erin had a Toddlebike2 and has really enjoyed riding it. She’s gone from practising in the living room, to playing in the garden and then to going for a ride down the street. As she turned 3 earlier this year the Toddlebike2 was no longer working for Erin and it was just too small for her. We decided to upgrade Erin to a balance bike and Kiddimoto helped us

You Don’t Have To Like Everything About Being A Parent

A couple of weeks ago John and I were having a bit of an argument about something. I don’t even really remember what the argument was about now but there was one thing that really stuck with me. John had a bit of a dig at me for saying that I didn’t enjoy or like going out for meals with Erin. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I hate eating out with my 3 year old. It’s just not fun so I don’t see why I should have to like it. I wish I could say that I

A Red Letter Days Country House Escape At The Grove, Cromer

AD | Gifted Experience Earlier this year Red Letter Days got in touch to see if we would like to try one of their experiences. Living in Norfolk and not being able to drive usually means that we’re not able to get to a lot of places but having been for afternoon tea and a massage last year, I knew of somewhere we could go. We decided to go with the Country House Escape for 2 at The Grove in Cromer. This particular experience is available Sunday to Friday, throughout the year, excluding summer holidays, Christmas and New Year period.

Getting Out In The Garden With Home Bargains

AD | Gifted items Spring is finally here after what seems to be a very long wait. The weather is slowly getting warmer, the nights are getting lighter and that means I have been looking forward to getting out in the garden more. Our garden is actually really basic but I just don’t go out there during the winter. So, when the time comes there ends up being quite a bit I need to do to get the garden ready for summer. This year Home Bargains sent us a wonderful selection of their gardening products to help us out. It’s pointless

Children’s Book Review: Kiss The Crocodile

AD | Gifted Item Crocodiles are probably one of Erin’s favourite animals. We sing songs about them, have puzzles in the shape of them and we love reading stories about them. Today John is talking about Kiss the Crocodile by Sean Taylor and Ben Mantle. Down in the jungle, three best friends – Monkey, Tortoise and Anteater – are playing silly games together. After Stick Splash, Scary Monsters and Silly Dancing, they spy Little Crocodile and his big crocodile mum in the swamp. Do they want to play a new game, Little Crocodile asks … a DARING game.
