Sending Family a Monthly Update with Neveo – Review

*This is a collaborative post As a family blogger our whole lives are online. They are on the pages of this website and across social media too. Every time we go anywhere the photos are shared across the internet and every time the children have a new milestone or celebration we talk about it on Facebook, Instagram and this blog.

Bringing Children’s Books to Life with Bookful

*This is a collaborative post Ever since the children were small we have read to them, and with them, as much as possible. Now that they are seven and five they will read stories to us instead and they really do enjoy books. But, they also love using their tablets and having screen time.

Kenilworth Castle {English Heritage}

The last time we met up was at Witley Court and Gardens and I signed up for English Heritage membership whilst we were there. It just so happened that our next adventure took us to another English Heritage site – Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire. I was expecting somewhere with castle in it’s name to…

Spinnaker Tower Toymaker’s Workshop

At the weekend we were invited to the Spinnaker Tower for their Toymaker’s Workshop. The children love the Spinnaker Tower so we were looking forward to seeing what it was like at Christmas – having only visited in the summer previously. We arrived at the Spinnaker Tower and were met with elves in the foyer who signed us in and chatted to the children until the Toymaker’s Workshop was ready…
