    Dino Kingdom – An Honest Review.

    AD – Contains gifted products (Disclaimer) I have been a little quiet on my blog of late, but that’s not why I am writing a post today. In fact I had planned to completely end my blogging life and concentrate on photography, however something has occurred that inspired me to write. Dino Kingdom promised dinosaurs like you’ve never seen before, and in their own words; ‘Step back in time and explore roaring and moving Dinosaurs and state-of-the-art 3D and AR technology. Immerse yourself in unforgettable interactive activities and enjoy a range of thrilling fairground rides, delicious food and drink and much more.’ But I feel the only thing they possibly got correct in that quote is ‘fairground rides’. We was promised moving animatronics, an interactive and immersive experience with plenty to do and to see, what we got however was possibly the most disappointing dino experience I have ever been too. I didn’t even take any photos. Given that our journey started a good 2 hours away, We was all excited to visit this new place and experience something fun and educational, The children themselves were semi kept in the dark as to where we was off too because, after… View Post

    The 73 Vogue Questions Tag // Personal

    So we all do this, go through life promising to be consistent with blogging and updating here daily or twice a week, and then something comes along and changes the mood; my mental health has been all over the place these past few weeks with the children going back to school and other things occurring that I do not wish to talk about publicly. So I decided to find this post that Jenny in Neverland did a while back and what better than to shake off some blogging blues with a little tag post! … and I’ve see these interviews online, I promise I won’t be annoying walking around doing household jobs while I answer haha.

    September Monthly Goals // Lifestyle

    Good day to all who may read this post! Welcome back to another fun and exciting monthly goals. Due to the fact that my MacBook decided to break on me these goals have unfortunately been published a little later than expected but no matter, I wanted to once again share with you what I hope to achieve this month in September Monthly Goals. But oh well! Last monthly goals I set myself some tasks that I hoped to achieve, not all of them happened but I don’t look at them as goals ‘I must do’ rather than goals I aim to hit but its not much of an issue if I dont hit them. This months goals are similar but a little different, and of course once again they are goals that if I dont hit them all its no biggy!! S E P T E M B E R  M O N T H  G O A L S Be more adventurous – The goal for this month is now that my three children are back at school to go out a lot more on my own or with Neil. I am a notorious homebody and love being local… View Post

    Harley Hound and Red Spotted Ned // Blog Tour // Books

    Reading and bedtime often walk hand in hand, and although my two eldest children are strong and capable readers my youngest daughter Robin still enjoys being read to at bed time. When we moved it was her idea to create a book area under the stairs to house all the books we’ve acclimated over the years. But of course we are always hungry for more fun and enjoyable books to read together at bedtime. Harley Hound and Red Spotted Ned are two wonderful books written by Chris Jones, inspired by when his son was read books by his mum, and once it came to Chris’ turn to read the books, he chose to create his own stories and adventures full of superpowers and never ending tails. After dealing with the break down of his relationship Chris jumped back into writing a story he and his fiancee started and found working on the story and completing it helped him heal and with myself having had to deal with the breakdown of my relationship in late 2019 I can fully understand how therapeutic throwing yourself into something to deal with the heartbreak. We all come out of the other end with a… View Post

    Back to School Tips // Parenting

    Its that time of the year again, when the shops are full of uniform for the new term and there is lots of brand new books, bags and shoes being paid for by anxious parents. This year for my children and I, Back to school is a little more hectic for us as my oldest child, Kai is off to secondary school. It is safe to say we are nervous but excited and honestly cannot wait for him to start this new big stepping stone in life into secondary education and hopefully future learning. But the one thing that’s really helped us this year is being prepared. And I cannot stress this enough to you, being prepared is so important. For my younger daughters, Amelia and Robin they are going back to their primary school but thankfully neither child has grown that much so therefor their uniform from last year fits perfectly this year, I have of course had to grab some new white shirts but other than that, its been easy. B A C K   T O  S C H O O L Back to school tips come and go each year, I always try to follow a few… View Post
