Maps for Moments – A Personalised Gift For Any Occasion | AD

There are some people, and some occasions, that I find so hard to buy the perfect gift for. It’s always hard to know what to buy parents or grandparents as if they want something they’ll just buy it themselves usually. Also, finding something unique to give as a gift for a sentimental occasion – a big birthday, a first wedding anniversary or even a gold or ruby wedding anniversary. It…

Tips for Visiting Alton Towers CBeebies Land

LP and Little Man are now six and seven but they still absolutely love a visit to the Alton Towers resort and will happily spend the whole day in CBeebies Land. It’s the perfect theme park attraction for children who aren’t tall enough for big roller coasters or just have no inclination to go on the bigger rides. From toddling onwards there is so much fun to be had at…


Visiting the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

We spent a week in Rome recently and everyday we walked past one of the world’s most iconic sites. The Colosseum is perhaps one of the most globally recognised structures and sits in the heart of a bustling metropolitan city yet still retains its majesty and beauty. It makes up a huge part of what has been preserved as Ancient Rome and definitely one of Rome’s most prolific tourist attractions.…


The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show at Camberley Theatre Review

Everyone is familiar with the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. It has been a childhood staple for generations of readers and our children are no different. They know the story off by heart and couldn’t wait to see it live on stage at Camberley Theatre. Eric Carle’s books have iconic, colourful, hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and really simple stories. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show has…


Babbacombe Cliff Railway and Oddicombe Beach

When we spent a weekend in Devon we visited Babbacombe Model Village for a morning and then decided to spend the rest of the day on the beach. But, wandering towards the coast we found the Babbacombe Cliff Railway and just had to get on it for a little trip to the sea front. The Babbacombe Cliff Railway has been in operation for over 90 years and is still going…


Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – Apollo Theatre, London Review

A few weeks ago Lauren and I went to a press night of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at the Apollo Theatre in London to welcome the new stars of the show Faye Tozer from Steps and Bianca Del Rio from Rupaul’s Drag Race. Before the show I didn’t know much about it, just that it had won awards and that everyone who had seen it raved about it. I couldn’t…


Introducing Cadbury Freddo Treasures | AD

Our children have a really good balance where food is concerned. Like all children they love a sweet treat every now and again and so when we were introduced to the new Cadbury Dairy Milk Freddo Treasures I couldn’t wait to see what the children thought of them. We have been fans of Freddo Frog for literally generations. But now Freddo Treasures add an extra element of fun and adventure…
