The last week has passed in a camping-induced blur. We were only away for a long weekend, but we packed it full of exciting days out and it was a resounding success. A mini break We stayed at a Church Farm campsite in a little village called Sixpenny Handley near Salisbury. The campsite was large and not too busy. It had a bar, restaurant, playground and clean facilities. Everything you need for a hassle-free camping trip. If we’d been a bit more organised, we probably would have camped either nearer to the coast or closer to the attractions we were visiting. We spent…

I’m delighted to be working with Vitality to train for their Vitality Move family friendly fitness and music festival. The festival was created in collaboration with Olympian Jess Ennis-Hill and DJ Trevor Nelson and takes place in two incredible locations – Chatsworth House on Sunday 9th July and Windsor Great Park on Sunday 17th September. My training goals for this year Back in December, I decided I wanted to take on a challenge this year. I knew I wouldn’t have time to train for an Ironman which is my ultimate goal, but I hoped I’d find the time to train…

My favourite post was this one about surviving a camper van holiday with children from Otis and Us. I found it…

Like all young children, my two adore Thomas the tank engine. For Lia in particular, it’s her default position when she’s watching television. So when Mid Hants Railway Watercress Line asked if we’d like to visit their day out with Thomas, I couldn’t resist. About Mid Hants Railway Mid Hants Railway runs from Alresford to Alton, where it connects with the mainline service to London. It is affectionately known as the Watercress Line because in years gone by, it was used to transport watercress from Alresford to London. This heritage railway operates on a not-for-profit basis, with all profits going…

Having written last week about being more productive, I’ve been a bit rubbish this week. My husband is off work for a week so we’re all in holiday mode. And to be honest, it’s a bit of a relief. A step back in time This week has been a bit like stepping back in time, doing things locally that didn’t cost much money or involve technology. After an Easter chocolate hunt on Saturday morning, we spent the rest of the day at a miniature steam railway catching up with family. We’ve visited a few times over the past few years…
