Ad – Gifted¦ Hever Castle just outside Edenbridge is one of our favourite places to explore as a family. It always looks beautiful and feels magical, no matter what season it is or what the weather is like. We hadn’t been in almost a year and were delighted to be invited back to put their children’s Easter trail and activities to the test! These run until 18th April, so they’ll be on for the rest of the school holidays too.
Collaborative Post – Gifted¦ We love The Historic Dockyard in Chatham. As I think I’ve mentioned previously on the blog, like many locals, I wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for the dockyard. There’s a lot to look around, but there are often new events and exhibitions throughout the year. This February half term, children can pretend to be maritime archaeologists in the new Dig Deep activity. We went to check it out.
It feels like Christmas has only just happened. Yet here we are, it’s February half term next week! I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for things to do in half term for kids in Gravesham and Medway. Some things were booked up in January (while my head was still trying to recover from Christmas and a million birthdays). However, all the things in this post still have availability at the time of writing!
At the beginning of January, it wasn’t just me with a milestone birthday. A few days after I celebrated my 30th, it was Reuben’s 1st birthday. I can’t believe my little rainbow baby is a year old already; it just doesn’t seem possible that I now gave birth to him over a year ago. For Autumn’s 1st birthday, we had a party. I did consider doing the same for Reuben, but then I looked at things from a different standpoint. I could either do just that and spent most of the day running around him in a stressed out flap getting things ready for a party he wouldn’t remember. Or I could spend the day doing his favourite things with him that he also wouldn’t remember, but would really enjoy at the time. We went for the latter!
Review (Gifted)¦ The other week, we did something a bit different. After our last visit to the cinema with Reuben at 8 months, we’ve given up on going to baby showings as he got irritable about not being able to crawl around. So that leaves us limited to what we can do that’s not also child-appropriate, as he’s always in tow. Then we found out about Bring Your Own Baby Comedy at The Orchard Theatre. I mean, 18+ comedy that you can drink prosecco at and your baby can go to without you being seriously judged, at lunch time? Yes please!
