An Arriva adventure to Kent Life

An Arriva adventure to Kent Life

Catching the bus is a daily experience, usually taking people from A-B for work or school. How often do we think outside the box and go for a day out on one, though? Last weekend we decided to do just that and go for an adventure on Arriva’s 155 Chatham to Maidstone bus. We took Autumn to Kent Life, as she absolutely adores animals and we knew she’d have lots of fun! 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.

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!
