A Year In The Country!

It seems really hard to believe but last week, which was half term, meant we have been living in the country for a whole year. And what a year it’s been! I don’t have any regrets for the move at all and that’s really saying something when I was so convinced it was going to be a sad change for us. I was concerned that we would miss London and primarily our friends but actually, although it’s true that we do, […]

The Imperial War Museum Duxford – Review!

At the end of the half term holiday we took a drive out to Cambridgeshire to visit the Imperial War Museum at Duxford. Jimmy had asked if could see aeroplanes and as his wish is my command – ha ha, (and it’s not too far to Duxford) I wanted to make it happen. I’d not been before but love the Imperial War Museum in London so I was very much looking forward to the history, especially the WW2 element, which is […]

Planet Hollywood London – Review!

We may have lived in London for an awfully long time and taken advantage of much on offer in our beautiful capital city but… It’s take us until we left to actually go back and do something we’ve wanted to for ages! Dining at Planet Hollywood! It’s something we’ve always talked about but never quite got our acts together enough to actually do. Until now! And along with Katy from Modern Mummy and her girls we headed over to the […]

It was absolutely ages ago now I suppose and Florence probably wasn’t the right age to enjoy it but I found it quite a fascinating place. I remember wondering when she’d be old enough to appreciate such a place of wonder – it’s a museum dedicated to the weird and the wonderful – think the tallest man in the world, a […]

A Night In The Novotel!

We’ve just come back from a mini break in London where we stayed at the Novotel Paddington and frankly, we couldn’t have wanted anything more from our stay. The hotel provided the perfect backdrop to everything else we did and was so brilliantly located with thoughtful details for a family inside that we HAVE to make plans to go back! Leaving London full time was one of the best things we ever did as a family. Getting out has meant for […]

L.O.L Surprise Dolls!

Yesterday we went into town to join the launch party for the brand new collectable L.O.L Surprise Dolls from MGA. Held at the White City Westfield Entertainer Store the party opened its doors to the public and introduced them to L.O.L Surprise dolls for the first time! We attended the event with friends from Modern Mummy, The Joy Of Five, Mummy Is A Gadget Geek, N4Mummy, and Mummy Endeavours so naturally it was always going to be fun for us with friends but… […]

McCain Ready Baked Jacket Potato – JP Bites Recipe – #LunchIn5!

There are some easy meals which you just can’t beat for comfort and while some of them, like beans on toast, come with a pretty quick prep time, others take just that bit too long to make them a regular on the pop up supper scene when you’ve only a short time to spare. You know the days, nothing is prepared and you need to eat now! This is exactly why ‘something on toast’ may win over the beloved jacket potato […]
