The Esplanade Hotel – Newquay, Cornwall

We started half term with a whistle stop trip to Newquay. Cornwall is one of our favourite parts of the country and having spent last February half term there it was so lovely to know we would be going back, with Dave this time, and exploring a part of Cornwall we hadn’t spent much time in before. The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay invited us to stay with them for two…

Our Experience of Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida makes up one of the four main theme parks of Walt Disney World Resort. When we visited last August Hollywood Studios was the first of the Disney Parks that we ventured to.

When is the right time to talk to children about sex?

The other day I posted on my Facebook page about vibrators being on sale in Poundland. I thought it was wrong for them to be prominently on display in the Valentines section, surrounded by cuddly toys and fluffy pillows. I know that if LP or Little Man saw a Bunny Vibrator they would read the box and ask what it was. I’m all for saying it’s a toy for grown…

The George Inn, Barford St Michael – Oxfordshire Review

Dave and I don’t often get time away without the children so when we were invited to stay at The George Inn in Barford St Michael we couldn’t wait for a chance to relax and unwind in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside. The George Inn is easily accessible from the M40 making it a great location for anyone looking for a night away. The drive to it is beautiful…
