Exploring London with Yazoo – and Giveaway! #ShakeTesters

Last weekend we played tourists in London. It’s somewhere we have always lived close to but somewhere we don’t really think to spend time so when Yazoo invited us to have a family day out as part of our #ShakeTesters role with them we turned it into a weekend away – and crammed in as many activities as we possibly could. The children were so excited for a couple of…

A Summer Trip to Kidzania

LP has been to Kidzania a few times now and absolutely loves it but Little Man hadn’t been since our first visit, when he was a toddler. We promised him that we’d go back when he was big enough to really appreciate everything that Kidzania had to offer – and that time came this summer. Little Man was so excited for his first proper visit to Kidzania so when we…

When I was a teenager I spent so much time at Thorpe Park. It was somewhere I would go with friends and where Dave and I would go early on in our relationship. But, it’s somewhere we hadn’t made it back to in such a long time. So, when we decided to take the children to Thorpe Park for the first time with our Merlin Annual Passes we were excited…

Keeping the Children Entertained this Summer with Better

Over the holidays it’s often difficult to keep the children entertained – finding things to do, places to go and activities they’ll enjoy. This can make the summer holidays seem so long and I know it can be easy to resort to watching TV and playing on tablets when we run out of other options. But this summer Better are inspiring families across the country to swap screens for screams…

Pendon Museum {Abingdon, Oxfordshire}

On a recent weekend away we needed somewhere to stop off on the way back. As it was raining heavily our usual National Trust choices were ruled out and so we looked for somewhere different that the children would enjoy – and found the Pendon Museum. The Pendon Museum transports you back to the 1930s, showing you fictional landscapes made up of incredible, realistic buildings based on actual buildings from the…
