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. I used to visit Corfe every year as a little girl, my grandparents always rented a cottage for a few weeks and it was lovely but I hadn’t been back for years and had yet to take the girls. From the car park there is a 10 minute walk to get up the the castle itself it’s a nice little…

National Trust Adventures – Hinton Ampner

I officially became a national trust member a few weeks ago; something I never thought I would be. This year the girls and I have found ourselves out and about enjoying  walking, exploring and picnics a hell of a lot more it just made sense to get a national trust membership. There are so many great places nearby to us which we were going to and paying for regularly, having the membership just gives us the freedom to pop to the ones locally when ever we fancy but it’s also made me think about setting our sights a little further…

Longleat Festival Of Lights

The girls and I headed off to visit Longleat last week to experience the Festival of Lights for the first time!

I knew it was going to be pretty busy as tickets were sold out for the day, it was advised to leave extra time for…

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…

Camp Bestival – Saturday

After a good night sleep the girls were up and bouncing off the walls wanted togged back to Camp Bestival, we had a big breakfast before a big day and set off. Traffic was a lot busier getting to the event it took almost an hour as opposed to the 35 mins it should take, but we arrived just in time to catch the end of Mr Tumble so the girls were happy. If you want to watch the big acts on the main stage you need to try and get there a little bit early to secure a good spot,…
