Wintery Beach Walks

Once again I find myself miserable with a cold. I hadn’t’ been able to shake the last one from back in December, so to find myself feeling crappy again really isn’t the best. Being ill with children means you don’t really have the time to be ill at all. You dose up, you suck it up and you carry on with your day. Thursday’s are always Mummy and Lottie day’s. She has no nursery, I don’t work that day at all if can be helped, so we head off to do something fun together. Cold or no cold it was…

Tregenna Castle Day 2

Day two a Tregenna Castle started out just perfectly, the sun was shinning, we had all slept well and we were up and excited to get to the beach. We had breakfast included in our stay so headed down early to the restaurant to fuel ourselves up for the day. Breakfast was a buffet style with a large range of cooked and continental options available so there is something for everyone, I opted for a nice big cooked breakfast while the girls preferred coco pops and fruit to get their day started. With full stomaches we set off into St.Ives to…

Our first paddle of the year

I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country, I really don’t think I would ever be able to move away.

But the thing I love most about where I live is the miles of beautiful golden sand that are just minutes from our house, when summer hits we spend so much time on the beach, making castles and even having a little splash in the…

Outdoor Winter Adventures

Anyone who knows me well enough will know I don’t do the coldness. I used to spend my pre-children winter’s eating bad foods and drinking hot drinks dreaming about spring and summer coming back. This is to a certain extent how I do still spend my winter’s but as you all know with three small children day after day stuck in is not a great deal of fun. There is also only so much soft play one can take and if you’re feeling the pinch from christmas still, it can be an expensive couple of hours! With the January blues in…

Enjoying the last of the summer sun

Just when I thought summer was over and done with, it seems to have returned this weekend and we have had two beautiful sunny days. I was determined to make the most of them after the rubbish summer we have had this year – and living in Dorset where else would you want to spend a sunny weekend than at the beach. Saturday the girls and I headed down to Sandbanks for some scooter riding, sand castle making and chips! It is hard to believe that next week it will be October with the sun shining like this. Maisy and Bella are…
