National Trust Adventures – Corfe Castle

This weekend we pulled on our welly boots and headed over to Corfe Castle for our next National Trust adventure we needed to burn off some of that never ending energy my girls seem to have and Corfe Castle won their vote.

From the car park there is a 10 minute walk to get up the the castle itself it’s a nice little…

Oxygen FreeJumping – Southampton

A couple of weeks ago the girls and I headed down to Oxygen FreeJumping in Southampton, after seeing so many snaps of people in these amazing indoor trampolining venues we just had to go down to our closest one and check it out. After we put on our special jumping socks and watched a quick demo video about safety we headed out into the park and got our bounce on. We went to the under 5’s sessions that they have each week days 10-12am and weekends 10-11am, it’s great that they have different sessions for different ages it means the little…
