Center Parcs – Our Top 10 Tips to Enjoy a Great Holiday

We have recently spent the week (Mon-Fri) at Sherwood Forest Center Parcs, along with my parents. We have visited the Woburn site previously but Mini was only 18 months then so we didn’t really check out many of the child/family activities, so were looking forward to getting stuck in a bit more with active forest life. Overall, we had a great time, even if the rain did try to put a dampener on our fun a few times. We found the site really clean, easy to navigate and truly had thought of everything, my favourite feature was the Starbucks, for those that…

Beehive Toys Review, Cuddles The Monkey

Beehive Toys Review We were lucky to be sent a special delivery from the Beehive Toys Factory recently to review. Inside was Cuddles the Monkey, a supersoft beige coloured toy, which Mini was thrilled to receive. Cuddles came well packaged and comes with his own little drawstring bag to carry him around in. Since Mini was tiny she has always loved soft things as a comforter, be it a teddy, a soft jumper or a scarf, we can’t leave the house without making sure she has something soft to stroke. Therefore she was the perfect tester for Cuddles. I’m pleased…

Iced Jems Cake Class Review I know that life is often busy and it’s not always possible to do, but I think it’s important for Moms (and Dads too) to spend time on themselves.

Our family day out at Chessington World of Adventures

When we found out that Mini had a teacher training day before May half term we decided to plan a visit to Chessington World of Adventures in the hope that it wouldn’t be too busy with most other children still at school. Luckily my Sister lives about an hour away from Chessington so we travelled down to stay with her on the Thursday evening so we wouldn’t have to do the 3 hours journey both ways on one day (more on the journey home later!) We often travel late evening as Mini goes to sleep and thankfully we can carry…

Think Tank Birmingham, Rainy Bank Holiday Fun

Think Tank Birmingham We had so many plans for this Whitsun Bank Holiday which all involved being outdoors and ending the day with a BBQ. Mr Mack and I had spent some time away from Mini yesterday doing a Sushi class and lunch with friends so we had told her we were going to have some family time today. Those plans went out the window as we woke up to a rather dull and soggy looking day. Rainy. Bank Holiday. A combination of words that instil dread into me, as I’m sure they do parents across the country. Pre child it would…
