Overnight Family Break in London with Buy A Gift

Before going on our family holiday to Majorca we ended up having a couple of days in London first. Engineering works on the train lines meant that train tickets were much cheaper on the Saturday rather than the Sunday so we decided to stay an extra night. However, this also meant that we needed a hotel for a night and while there is so much choice in London I like to stay in a chain where possible so I know what to expect. This time, we booked a Overnight Family Break in London at a Novotel Hotel through Buyagift.com. After the

Looking After Tiny Toes With Dotty Fish & Giveaway

Way back when I was 17 I worked for a very well-known shoe shop and I was also the assistant manager of a children’s shoe shop when I lived in Toronto. During these times I measured and fitted so many children with the perfect shoes so I know how important it is to look after children’s feet. Recently, I discovered a brand who feel the same way. Dotty Fish have a gorgeous range of soft soled baby shoes and you can find out more about them, and their benefits below. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of

Things To Do In Bristol With Children

John and I are always looking for new places to visit in the UK and somewhere that has recently come up on my radar is Bristol. I’m not sure why but I never really knew where Bristol was until recently and apart from it being where Skins is set, I didn’t know much about what there was there either. Before deciding to visit somewhere though I always make sure there is plenty to do for children, especially toddlers. We The Curious We love to take Erin to places where she can learn but also have loads of fun at the

Back To Reality

Isn’t the first normal day back from a holiday the worst? Our flight landed back into Stansted yesterday at 3pm and we didn’t actually step through our door until 7:30 after a 3 hour train journey home. We have never done so much travelling with Erin in one day and she was absolutely exhausted! I’m really glad that John took today off work instead of going straight back because now it means we get a day to get ourselves back to normal. Of course, after 10 days away we have come back with a whole load of washing to do and work and

WOW Toys Activity Table Review

Finding Erin smaller toys to play with is really easy. Smaller toys can hold her attention for roughly 30-45 minutes maximum but a lot of them won’t last more than a couple of months at best. Erin is now at an age where how she plays can change quite quickly but it’s important to also find toys that she can grow up with as well. Recently we have been playing with the WOW Toys Activity Table and here’s what we thought. The activity doesn’t come assembled but it does only come in 5 pieces and a bag of fixings. John

Perfect Plus Size Swimwear From UKSwimwear

When preparing for a family holiday abroad, especially with children, it’s really easy to forget about yourself. I have had lists going for months for John and Erin as well as bags full of new things covering my bedroom. For me though, I ended up with 2 new pairs of shorts the week before our holiday and not much else. Although I luckily haven’t needed too much one thing that desperately needed replacing was my swimsuit. The swimsuit I was using, ever single week for Erin’s swimming lessons, was one I’d had since 2013. I remember buying it in the

How To Pack For A Family Holiday Abroad

I don’t know about you but when it comes to sorting out a family holiday, I’m the one that does most things. This is a bit of me being a bit of a control freak and a bit of fear of us forgetting something important. On our last holiday to Center Parcs, I managed to forget clothes for myself because I was so stressed. The clothes I forgot to take were sat in a pile upstairs in our bedroom, ticked off the list but not in the case. I had to squeeze into a couple of my sister’s jumpers all

Good Garden Tips for People Who Hate Gardening

Not everybody gets to have a garden. So, if you do have one, but you don’t want to do any gardening in it, it can make you feel a bit guilty. It feels like you should be doing something beautiful with it, but you just can’t be bothered to spend your weekends pulling up weeds. Gardens don’t only have to be for plants, though. Fortunately, they can have many other features, which require much less regular maintenance. If gardening isn’t something you enjoy, you can still create a beautiful space that’s functional and low-maintenance. Credit: Public Domain Pictures Focus on
