A fun family Saturday in the sun in Broadstairs

A fun family Saturday in the sun in Broadstairs

Last week was so grey, cloudy and misty, I felt I really couldn’t take it anymore. When the weather is so gloomy, I find that it really affects my mood. When I read in the news that it was the longest London had been without a single hour of sunshine for 8 years, I couldn’t say I was surprised. However, the sun finally made an appearance on Saturday and we grasped the opportunity to make the most of it! View Post

Easter family fun at Hever Castle

Easter family fun at Hever Castle

A family day out has been overdue for ages now. We have been excited about visiting Hever Castle in Kent since the beginning of the year, when we first planned to visit during the Easter school holidays! Whilst it wasn’t quite the warm spring weather we’d hoped for, the rain fortunately stayed away for the duration of our visit. This lent itself to us fully enjoying the Lindt gold bunny hunt as we explored the beautiful gardens surrounding the castle!  View Post

Review: Musical Bumps, Rochester

Review: Musical Bumps, Rochester

Musical Bumps run music classes for babies, toddlers and beyond around the country. Based on the Hungarian Kodaly method of music teaching, they use a mixture of traditional favourite music, as well as less well known music from around the world. Through play, children can grasp musical skills and basic musical concepts, such as rhythm. We recently visited our local class at Dance Junction in Rochester, KentView Post

Local Business Spotlight: Playopolis board game café

Local Business Spotlight: Playopolis board game café

In January, I decided to start writing about a local business each month. This is actually February’s post, which has been somewhat delayed due to other projects and my personal life! At the beginning of the year, I celebrated my birthday along with two friends who also have theirs in the same week. We enjoy board games, so trying out a board game café called Playopolis in Rochester, Kent, seemed like a great idea!

Progressing swimmingly with Puddle Ducks!

Progressing swimmingly with Puddle Ducks!

A couple of months have passed since my last update on Autumn’s toddler swimming lessons with Puddle Ducks. She’s had lessons (with a break in the middle) since she was a three month old baby and she’s now 17 months. Over the last few weeks, though, I have really noticed her skills developing quickly. It’s amazing to see! View Post
