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

Our First Family Holiday Abroad

It feels like this day has been a very long time coming. This morning John, Erin and I are flying to Palma ready for our first family holiday abroad to¬†Puerto Pollensa, Majorca. I remember booking this holiday way back in March 2017 so we’ve actually had over a year to wait for it to happen. I like booking holidays head whenever I can because it’s good to be able to spread the cost if you need to. We went on holiday last year to Center Parcs in October but I have been dreaming of sun, a pool and the beach

Summer Destinations For Families

We are on countdown now to our first family holiday in only a few days time. However, before we decided on a final destination we had so many different choices of where we could go and it took quite a long time to decide. With summer just around the corner (hopefully) I thought it would be a good idea to write about some of the places we considered. Benidorm I actually went to Benidorm way back when I was 18 and as cheesy as the TV show makes it seem, I loved it! Although I went in March it made

Travel Essentials For The Whole Family

In just a few days we will be going on our first family holiday abroad and I am so excited it’s unreal. Going abroad seems to be a much bigger operation that staying somewhere in the UK because there’s a lot more than you need to take with you. I do the packing in our house just so I can have the peace of mind of knowing we have everything we need. I like to make lists and John would pack last minute if he had his way so it works out well for us. To help others in a

How To Make The Most Of A Family Garden

We are very lucky to have quite a large garden, even if it needs a bit of work doing to it. As soon as we moved in we started to clear the overgrown mess we had been left with and after 3 skips worth of rubbish, we ended up with a nice lawn (although now ruined by a dog). We also got new fences a couple of years ago and our neighbour did the same so that was a big job done. When we moved in it was just me and John but now, we need to think more about

How To Make A Bathroom Child Friendly

Life with a toddler can be pretty tricky sometimes. Okay, it can be tricky a lot of the time actually. There are plenty of days where I wish I had either a different house all together or at least, had some things done to it that would make our lives a whole lot easier. Bathrooms can be a place full of accidents waiting to happen so here are some ways to make your bathroom child friendly. Showers Instead Of Baths One of our biggest problems is that we only have a bath. Erin is not happy if I want to

Fletter: A Word Game Review

At the minute our house is where family stay. My sister is currently living with us so her fiance comes to stay roughly every other weekend and then my mum also comes to stay whenever she has a week off work. We are always looking for new games to play for when we have people over so when we heard about Fletter, we all wanted to give it a go. Fletter is suitable from age 8+ and is for 2- 4 players, meaning that most of the family can get involved. Erin is too young for this yet so it’s

Bathroom Renovation Dreams

Earlier in the week you may have read my post about ideas for modernising an old house. After writing that it got me thinking about what my bathroom renovation dreams would be. Boiler Upgrade Before we could really do anything major to our bathroom we would first have to upgrade our boiler. At the moment we have a really old style boiler and it cuts out quite often. We’re constantly having to re-boot it to make sure we have enough hot water for baths. It is a massive pain and it drives me mad. A new boiler is right at
