Looking forward to the Easter break

It seems like half the country are on their Easter holidays already and I am slightly miffed that mine don’t break up from school until Thursday as I am itching to get outside and have some outdoor fun. I am currently stalking the MET Office website daily to see what the weather will be doing over the bank holiday weekend – if only these weathermen had the psychic ability to tell us exactly what the weather would be doing far in… Continue Reading “Looking forward to the Easter break”

Kayaking at Studland, Dorset

Middle Beach

A few weeks ago we went Coasteering with Studland Sea School and were introduced to a whole new world of water sports to enjoy locally that we had never even known was available. I then met Michael from Go Canoeing who were with Studland Sea School at Bournemouth Family Festival.  The kids got to have a go on some static canoes whilst I learned all about the fun that canoeing has to offer and decided to book the boys in for a… Continue Reading “Kayaking at Studland, Dorset”
