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!

Romantic Weekender Ideas Every Parent Will Love

*Collaborative Post

When you become a parent, there is an invisible contract that you sign your name on. You signed it the moment that your baby was placed into your arms at the hospital and there is a clause that states that all parents shall not enjoy a night away from their child. Those who try will panic about their babies and those who don’t will lust after the idea of adult time alone; it’s a curse amongst the blessing that is your new child.

The Experience of Taking a Toddler Abroad

If you follow my blog and facebook page you will be aware that we recently travelled to Zante for a two week holiday to watch my sister get married. Taking a toddler abroad was one experience we hadn’t wanted to do until he was a little bit older as we were concerned about taking him on plane being so young, we were unsure on how he would cope in the heat, we were reluctant to let the routine go out the window and, mostly, we had slightly selfish reasons because we felt we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the beach as we used to when we were child-free!

Why YOU Time Is So Important

When you become a parent your entire life changes as do all your priorities. Pre-baby you would work hard all week and then get to chill out in the evenings. You would get to the weekend and recuperate ready for the following week by spending those two days however you wished; maybe lying in bed, going to the pub or having a leisurely afternoon walk. Once your baby comes along the days roll into each other, the night time means being up for feeds/illnesses/colic/teething etc. and the weekends are just the same routine as the week. You may come to accept that your old life is behind you and that your life from now on is non-stop and that you must always put your needs last. But burning yourself out both mentally and physically is not good for any of you and scheduling some ‘you’ time in is crucial.

We love going on days out in and around Hampshire. We are lucky that we live close to other counties and can explore all they have to offer. We love discovering new areas, researching where is good with kids and getting to know new places.
