Bucket List: Into the Wild Summer Festival

So, this was an item I had added to the bucket list and then immediately regretted! I didn’t know how on earth I was going to manage two under 5s by myself for a whole weekend of camping. I didn’t even have any camping gear, so it was a quick stop at Decathlon for the basics (honestly, BASICs). I got a 3 person pop-up tent, … Continue reading Bucket List: Into the Wild Summer Festival

The Bucket List: Seaside Trip

We’ve had a couple of days wrapped up inside thanks to blocked noses and sore throats, so yesterday when we all woke up feeling marginally better a little spontaneity was in order. I decided to take the opportunity to surprise the boys with a trip to the seaside (also an item on the bucket list). I did a quick Google search over breakfast for the … Continue reading The Bucket List: Seaside Trip

Does going on holiday without my children make me a bad mother? 

You may have recently read the Daily Mail (I know, I know!) article about the families that bring their nanny on holiday with them so that they can have a stress-free holiday, the children have fun and everybody is happy. Not according to the readers, some of the comments that I saw were in the region of “family holidays are just that, if you don’t want … Continue reading Does going on holiday without my children make me a bad mother? 

The Bucket List: Spa Day 

Continuing with our bucket list before W starts school, we decided this was an activity B could take part in as well. He’s been begging to get his nails done just like me so I thought a spa day at home would cover this request nicely. You will need: Bubble bath As many towels as possible Cucumbers Foot scrub Lotion Older/more capable children I had … Continue reading The Bucket List: Spa Day 

Father’s Day In A Single Parent Household

I remember Father’s Day growing up, we often made some sort of ‘craft’ to bring home to dad and mum would get our photo taken to be stuck on one of those popular (at the time) ‘World’s Best Dad’ musical mugs. As we got older, we were able to tailor our gifts towards his actual interests rather than assuming he would be delighted with receiving … Continue reading Father’s Day In A Single Parent Household

Foodie Friday: Busaba Eathai

I was first introduced to Busaba Eathai during my teen years when it was just a restaurant on Wardour Street, it is now a recognisable chain of several restaurants throughout London and I was recently able to introduce the Little Londoners to the Shepherds Bush restaurant. We arrived at around 11.40am, although 20 minutes before the kitchen opened we were invited to find a table until … Continue reading Foodie Friday: Busaba Eathai

The Bucket List: Museum Challenge

As we continue to make our way through the list, we came to ‘The Museum Challenge’. Living in London we are fortunate enough to have three, free museums all within walking distance of each other, on our doorstep. Our challenge was to visit all three in one day! First up was the Science Museum, we arrived before doors opened at 10am after a quick visit … Continue reading The Bucket List: Museum Challenge
