It has been one of those weeks where I’ve had lots of work on but just as many excuses to step away from the laptop. Take last night for example. I had a million and one work-related things I should have been doing. And yet what I was actually doing was arguing with a roll of washi tape. Which is probably exactly what most of the country’s parents were doing in preparation for World Book Day. What we’ve been up to Despite my pleas for a quiet weekend, I was outvoted and we headed to Warwick Castle on Saturday. I have…

I don’t know about you, but I spend most of the year waiting for my holiday. When I’m not on holiday, I’m thinking about holidays. And this year, Mark Warner are looking for blogger ambassadors. They want to see a mood board of our top 10 travel must haves. And for me, travel is all about the holiday itself, not the material things you take with you. So here are our top 10 holiday essentials, as demonstrated by Lia.   1. Beaches This one’s for the girls. For them, a holiday is all about building sandcastles, splashing in the waves and…

There are lots of reusable bags around that pack down, but none…

This year will be only my third Mother’s Day as a mum of two. And yet it’s amazing how much things have changed in this short time. That’s why I was keen to get involved when Matalan asked me to recreate an old family photo. The original photo I chose to recreate this photo from a visit to the Tower of London Remembrance Day poppies. Lia was only about six months old and I carried her everywhere in a sling.

This year we’re delighted to be ambassadors for the fabulous Warwick Castle. We headed there yesterday and realised we’d totally underestimated how much there was to do. It’s been a good few years since we went and there are many more attractions now. We didn’t arrive until nearly lunch time and the castle closes at 4pm in Winter so we didn’t manage to see everything we wanted to. If you’re a bit more organised and want to plan your visit, here’s a list of what to do at Warwick Castle including events. Head to their website for more information. Inside…
