What would you do if you won the lottery?

What you’d do if you won the lottery has more than likely crossed your mind at some point. Probably when you were stuck in traffic on the morning commute or unable to afford something luxurious you saw. It’s all so tempting to think that with just one ticket, your life has the potential to change forever! View Post

Review: My First Photo Book

Review: My First Photo Book

Autumn loves looking at photographs of family around the room, in albums and on my phone. She smiles at the familiar faces, says who they are and prods at them. Of course, the problem with this is that all of these things are breakable and potentially harmful. I was recently asked to review the newly launched “My First Photo Book” by Photobox.

Exploring Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts

Exploring Animals of the Ice Age at Howletts

Despite living in Kent all my life, I’ve never actually visited Howletts before. However, I was recently invited to visit and check out the new Animals of the Ice Age exhibit.

It certainly provides yet another reason to visit Howletts for a family day out! View Post

Rochester Dickens Festival 2018

Rochester Dickens Festival 2018

One of the reasons I love where I live is because I live on the doorstep of such a beautiful city, steeped in history. Rochester has major links to Charles Dickens, has a castle, an array of fantastic shops and is next to the River Medway. There are three major festivals during the year which I always enjoy, too. These are the Sweeps Festival, the Dickens Festival and the Dickensian Christmas Festival/Market. Last weekend was the Dickens Festival and we made sure we squeezed it into a super busy weekend.
