• Visiting Tilbury Fort // Days Out

    Built in the 16th Century and situated on the Thames Estuary. Tilbury Fort is a wonderful piece of military history that you can visit today. Neil had a week off to take the children and I on some adventures and visiting Tilbury Fort was one of them. Kai, my eldest is really into his history, He doesn’t have a set history in which he likes he just likes history. So Neil thought it would be a good idea to take him as well as the other children to visit the fort for a day out and then head down to South end afterwards for some fun at the beach. T H E  H I S T O R Y  O F  T I L B U R Y  F O R T I could talk about the whole history of Tilbury, however I personally do not feel at all qualified to even start talking about it. Tilbury Fort has a long and amazing military history which spans back hundreds of years. throughout the years its gone through multiple changes but the one thing that remains is the fact that its been a bit part of defending the Thames and London… View Post

    Kidsfest at Lee Valley Farm // Days Out

    During the six weeks of the summer holidays Lee Valley Farm offered up a fun event for children called Kidsfest, The event offers a range of fun things for the children to see and do. Including superheroes, Princesses and of course lots of farm yard animals to feed and meet. K I D S F E S T As a parent, I couldn’t help but feel this event was planned out thoroughly, however for the children this was a fun day out that they enjoyed. Walking into the farm we decided to head towards the smaller creatures area. Where delightfully we saw some essentially wild Guinea pigs that had this huge area to themselves. We are all aware that guinea pigs are notoriously social animals and can get depressed and lonely if left on their own. These guys had four houses and a large area to run in, it was lovely to see them run about. I can see these were some happy Piggies! Up next the children got the opportunity to feed some adorable rabbits, We was given a plan of what was going on during the day and as we arrived it was time for the rabbit feeding,… View Post

    Easter Trail at Cammas Hall // Days Out

    Now I realize this is a little late to the party post but I wanted to share with you what fun we had during the Easter holidays this year, given that lockdown was easing and that it was my birthday on the day we went as well. Easter Adventure time! Cammas Hall is a place ive shared a few times here, we go when we can with my mum whenever the strawberries are out in full bloom and ready for good eats or of course when the pumpkins are ready for picking for Halloween, but I’ve never used the opportunity to go there for any of their other events, this one was a wonderful and fun Easter event that continued through the Easter holidays so there was plenty of time for you to go and enjoy the sunshine and fun. Cammas Hall Farm is found just outside of Harlow in a small village, neatly tucked away from the busy life of the world, I have always enjoyed going there, I often describe it a fun place to photograph as a lot of my fruit photos that I’ve taken have come from here, they house a range of wonderful fruits and… View Post

    Adventure to Sealife London // Days Out

    During the half term, me and my children tried to get out as much as we could and I had to take them to sealife in London for the day, I booked our tickets online as it worked out a little cheaper and prepared for a fun little day in London. Before I used to shy in fear about taking my litter into London, but I’ve developed a little but of confidence and really wanted to get them to experience some of the wonderful tourist locations in our capital city. costing around £120 for the five of us, which I ordered a family ticket as it did indeed work out a lot cheaper as I said, we set the day for the Thursday. Getting there was nice and easy, the plan was to get the train to Liverpool Street train station and make the walk there, which wasn’t a bad walk, I did take the push chair purely for tired legs and for somewhere to put all the coats and lunches, on the walk to sealife we stopped beside the river and had our much needed lunch that I had packed for them and Matt showed them around a pier… View Post

    Trip to the Natural History Museum | Days Out

    Now, I am not sure if I mentioned this before but I have a long standing history of being afraid of trains so thinking outside of my fear I wanted to take my children to London for the day. Sounds like a good idea yes? in theory, yes its a good idea, but in practice I honestly will not be going again until I am driving because frankly the London underground isn’t very accessible to buggies.. but enough of my complaints.. Our day started off around about half 5 am, kai had a doctors appointment that morning so once that was sorted we then met my friend Sian and her little boy Corey in town who was also coming along to London, because frankly i didn’t want to go alone, we got our tickets and made our way to the platform, with me slightly panicking about the idea of going on a train with my kids but it went well, the children loved sitting up at the window and watching the countryside go by. Once we arrived at Tottenham Hale we had to get into the underground which Kai was excited for, I however was not, we got the underground… View Post
