48 Hours In Cambridge

When Erin was maybe just over a year old we went on a last minute trip to Cambridge. We didn’t have the largest amount of time but we had a great visit and we’d said we would love to go back when Erin was a bit older. Now that Erin is nearly 4 we thought we would be in a better position to explore the city a bit more and to do more while we were there. This time, we managed to book our trip for John’s birthday so it was a great time to go away. Monday We have

A Family Getaway With YHA Cambridge

AD | Gifted stay Up until recently I will hold my hands up and admit that I was a bit of a snob when it came to travelling and where we stayed. A couple of years ago if you’d have asked me to stay in a caravan or a hotel I probably would have laughed at you. However, I’ve really become more open minded about staying in different kinds of accommodation that aren’t just a hotel room with a private bathroom. I want Erin to experience all different kinds of travel so on a recent trip we stayed at YHA

Postcards To Erin

I think it was a couple of years ago now that we received a really beautiful glass keepsake box from Maria Allen to include in a Christmas gift guide. At the time, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with it but after a little bit of thinking I decided that I would fill it with postcards for Erin. I don’t have a lot from my childhood. I have a small selection of photographs of me as a child and from a few days out with family, as well as having some old photos of some family members.

How My Attitude Towards Holidays Has Changed Since Becoming A Parent

I remember going on my first ever holiday abroad and that was for my 18th birthday. My boyfriend at the time and I headed off to Benidorm for a week and I had the best time. We went out of season as my birthday is in March and I loved the relaxed, quiet feeling and just being able to relax on the beach and do whatever I wanted. That first holiday really made me want to travel more, both abroad and in this country. Since then, I have been able to go on holiday to some fantastic places and John

Being Self-Employed And Going On Holiday

Today we are going to Haven Seashore in Great Yarmouth for a 4 night holiday. We went to Haven (Caister-on-Sea) for the first time last year and Erin has such a good time that we wanted to go back but try out a different park. This holiday was a gift from my Mum and she’s actually coming with us seeing as there was extra space in the caravan. Erin is so excited about getting to share a bedroom on holiday with her Grandma and John is really looking forward to having a week off work. While John gets to relax

Car Essentials For A Summer Road Trip

AD | Sponsored post The summer holidays are less than 2 months away and if you’re anything like me you’ll already be starting to put some plans into place. If you’re looking to explore the UK this year, or maybe even further afield, then a road trip could be just what you need. We’re lucky to live in such a beautiful country with so many different places to visit so it would be a shame to miss out on that. If you are planning on going on a road trip this summer, whether it be on your own or with

Staying In A Woodland Lodge at Kelling Heath Holiday Park

AD | Press trip On our recent stay at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk we stayed in one of their two bedroom woodland lodges. Kelling Heath do offer other accommodation options such as camping and luxury holiday homes. We instantly liked the look of the lodges though due to us having stayed in something similar elsewhere before. As Erin still has naps while we’re away we wanted somewhere we could spread out and enjoy while we weren’t out exploring. Living area and kitchen Erin likes to spread out when we’re away, especially when we bring toys and things

Our Woodland Adventure At Kelling Heath Holiday Park

AD | Press trip This year we are making the effort to make the most of our local area. We recently stayed at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk for four nights in a woodland lodge. I was desperate for some time away from home to relax and also to spend some quality time with John and Erin. Sometimes it’s so easy to pick a city destination but we all needed some time together that wasn’t as busy and rushed. Our stay was from Monday to Friday and as soon as we arrived we felt at peace.
