A Fun Family Day Out at Dundee Discovery Point

During February half term we are spending our week in Scotland, staying at a gorgeous holiday cottage in Angus which we are using as a base to explore as much of the country as possible. So far we have been subject to pretty much everything the weather can throw at us with rain, hail, snow, wind and even a spot of blue sky and with the weather looking a bit ropey this morning we decided to stay local and pay a… Continue Reading “A Fun Family Day Out at Dundee Discovery Point”

A Panoramic View over Bournemouth

Bournemouth Wheel

2016 was the year I promised myself we would go on the Bournemouth balloon, however, it wasn’t meant to be as it disappeared back in June, never to return. Thankfully, over the Christmas period, we got to take in panoramic views of Bournemouth from a big wheel standing more than 100 feet tall at Pier Approach. Isaac and I first rode the wheel after his 100 years of Cubs parade which saw us marching through Bournemouth Gardens covered in glowsticks,… Continue Reading “A Panoramic View over Bournemouth”

I lived in West Sussex at the time, a stones throw from the shingle beach and not too far from the bright lights of Brighton, but holiday’s with my Aunt and Uncle always stick in my mind. It’s funny what you remember, the journey through the New Forest that… Continue Reading “My Great British Family Holiday #OMGBFamily”

Camp Bestival 2016 – The Dingly Dell

Lizzie's Way

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Dingly Dell is our favourite haunt at Camp Bestival and this year was our most magical yet. The Dingly Dell takes you away from the rush of the festival and into the nurturing bosom of nature’s playground. In the daytime, the kids adore exploring Lizzie’s Way where they get to read stories, act out puppet shows, make mud pies and potions and make wishes to fairies. Walk a little further in and try your… Continue Reading “Camp Bestival 2016 – The Dingly Dell”
