Essential SAHM Boredom Beaters

*Collaborative Post

Before you had your baby, you may have thought it would be impossible to feel boredom when staying at home to look after them. After all, there’s so much to do and get used to, and they are such little miracles that will change and grow every day. However, stay at home mums (SAHMs) often do feel bored from time to time. Not because their babies or their role as a mother is boring per se but because they are used to working and interacting with adults all day. Happily, if boredom does begin to strike there are some smart things you can do to beat it. Read on to find out what they are. Continue reading “Essential SAHM Boredom Beaters”

What to Do in London this Winter

*Collaborative post

Although the summer months are often favoured when it comes to planning days out, winter brings its own unique range of exciting events and activities that the whole family can enjoy.

In London, there is always something new just waiting to be discovered, ranging from culture and history-based trips to foodie adventures and music, arts or sporting events. Compared to the warmer months of the year, the capital should be quieter during the winter without so many tourists – the perfect time to plan a day trip! London is so easily accessible via train but if you are further afield why not think about what flights to London are available. It could be great fun for the whole family and will also get you there in no time! Continue reading “What to Do in London this Winter”

Our Visit to Little Play Town

The weather has been less than Spring-like recently (to say the least) and as most of our usual indoor activities had been exhausted we found ourselves at a bit of a loss over what to do the other day. Then I remembered hearing about a new play place in Odiham, Hampshire. A friend had highly recommended that we visit Little Play Town because her children had such a great time so I set about looking it up online. 

Little Play Town is an indoor interactive play place for babies and children aged 1-6 years. It is very similar to Continue reading “Our Visit to Little Play Town”

Why Southsea is a great day out for all the family

I have lived in Hampshire all my life and spent a lot of my childhood visiting the great places it has to offer. Certain places hold special memories for me and the coast, especially Southsea and Hayling Island, were two of my Mum’s favourite destinations. 

Southsea is located in Portsmouth at the southern end of Portsea Island and is most well-known for its castle, its naval history, the events which take place on the common and its pier. Each time I visit there seems to be a new gem to discover. As a child, Continue reading “Why Southsea is a great day out for all the family”

Our Trip to Little Street

Little Street is an indoor play centre with a twist:

“Responding to children’s love of role play, we have created a realistic street designed with little people in mind. Featuring a supermarket, construction site, cafe, beauty salon, fire service, medical centre and more; our Little Street is a scaled down version of a typical town, inspiring children to explore life in the world around them”
