I have to admit I’ve been dreading this month a bit. We’ve got so much on and no time to relax. I knew the children would enjoy it but it was also looking like incredibly hard work. But despite my misgivings, last weekend ended up being pretty much the best weekend the girls have ever had. It was also one of the best we’ve had as a family. A weekend in a hotel As you probably know, we’re huge fans of self-catering holidays and camping. We like to take the dogs on holiday, which tends to limit us on where…

After an amazing weekend at the Alton Towers theme park and resort, I realised there were a few tips that could have made our stay better. We were among the first people to try out the Cbeebies hotel. We also put both Cbeebies Land within Alton Towers theme park and the Splash Landings waterpark through their paces. Our children are aged 3 and 5, so the perfect age for the Cbeebies experience. I wanted to share the things that would have improved our stay so that others will hopefully have a better time.

We always tend to be busy doing fun things. Things that the girls want to do. Sport, days out, music and a plethora of other things. But sometimes we end up so busy that it stops being enjoyable, for me at least. Too much of a good thing We spent Saturday at a lovely little local music festival called WestFest. It is set near to our favourite park in a beautiful location. They had a bouncy castle and bouncy slide as well as the music tents, bar and market stalls. The girls had a brilliant time and even the dogs…
