Joie Commuter Travel Cot Review

With the imminent arrival of baby number two, we have been looking into the essential items that we need to purchase or replace. We do have a second-hand travel cot from Jake’s baby days but it has always been a tricky one to set up so I was eager to see what else was now available on the market. 

Kiddies Kingdom is your one-stop online shop for all things baby and child. I had a look through their wide range of Travel Cots for sale and was immediately drawn to Continue reading “Joie Commuter Travel Cot Review”

why Cornwall is a great holiday destination with a baby

Why Cornwall is a Great Holiday Destination With a Baby

Our first holiday as a family was to the stunning county of Cornwall when Jake was just 6 months old. We didn’t fancy attempting a holiday abroad with a baby due to the fact we didn’t know how he would take to the heat or even flying so we looked at our options of where to stay in the UK. Cornwall stood out to us because they is just so much to see and do and let’s face it when you have a child your priorities of what a holiday has to offer completely change – bye, bye long days spent sunning yourself on a beach whilst drinking cocktails!

We booked a caravan on the family friendly site Continue reading “Why Cornwall is a Great Holiday Destination With a Baby”

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”

My Top Ten Travel Must Haves

It may only be February but after what seems like the longest cold spell I am craving the warmth of the sun and just this week we have been discussing where our holiday destination will be this year.

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that last year’s holiday was a very special one. Having previously only taken Jake to Cornwall on our trips, we were thrown into experiencing our first holiday abroad with him because my sister chose Zante, Greece as the venue for her wedding. Taking a two-year-old on a plane was something Continue reading “My Top Ten Travel Must Haves”

Our New Year Trip To Exmoor

We decided to escape the parties and fireworks this New Year mainly due to our elderly dog who is no longer able to cope with the noises, which gave us the perfect opportunity to retreat to the countryside with the family and enjoy some quality time before the rat race of work and routine had to begin again.

After hunting around on the internet I was over the moon when Continue reading “Our New Year Trip To Exmoor”
