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

Swimming Safely With SwimFin

When we first started taking Erin to swimming lessons she hated them. When I say hated I really mean it. Erin was a preemie and really felt the cold. At 12 weeks old she was still super small and her first lessons was horrendous. Luckily, we stuck with it and now Erin loves swimming and being in the water. She never wants her swimming lessons to end and often wants to spend a bit of time in the bigger pool afterwards. With our upcoming holiday to Majorca we were thrilled at the chance to try Erin with a SwimFin. If, like

Getting Summer Ready With Simply Swim and Splash About

In a few weeks we will be heading off to Majorca for our first family holiday abroad. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am right now.

5 Ways To Keep Fit Out Of The Gym

Swimming I love spending time in the swimming pool and I love taking Erin. However, swimming is something I never learned how to do as a child because of self consciousness. I hated getting in a swimming costume at school and maybe that was because I didn’t have something flattering enough

Center Parcs Activities: Subtropical Swimming Paradise

Swimming is one of the only free activities to do at Center Parcs and if you’re looking for a holiday on a budget, this is something you really need to make the most of! The Subtropical Swimming Paradise can be found in the Sports Plaza which is right in the middle of Center Parcs Elveden Forest. This was only a 15 minute walk from our lodge and I think roughly a 30 minute walk from the lodges which were further away. Still, this isn’t a long walk and it can be made a lot easier and quicker if you have hired

The Mum Who Loved Baby Classes

Erin is nearly 2 and it has been quite some time since we stopped going to any baby classes or groups. We stopped going to our last one, Music in Motion a while ago now. That one in particular runs past toddler age but Erin’s nap times were making going impossible so we were just throwing money away pretty much. The thing about baby classes is always having something fun to do with your child. We used to go to Baby Sensory and Baby Yoga, as well as swimming. I used to love having something planned two or three days
