After a brilliant week camping in Kielder Forest, we are on our way home. There has been no phone signal at all where we were staying and limited WiFi. Much as this was a little inconvenient, it forced me to have a real break from work and social media. Cycling Libby learnt to ride her bike over a year ago when she was only three years old. Since then, it has been a bit of a battle to help her to do much more than ride in a straight line. Whilst she tried hard and had good balance, her bike…

Since booking Lia into preschool, I’ve been thinking about the extra time I’ll have from September. From Monday to Wednesday, I won’t have either of the girls for five hours a day. Much as I’ll miss them, I’ve been looking forward to taking on some extra work. But last week, I realised that work really couldn’t be my priority.

I’ve always been relatively driven in terms of my career, so it seemed like a…

A dramatic weekend We spent the weekend at Warwick Castle for their Wars of the Roses event. Around here, drama is usually negative. But I’m happy to say that the weekend was dramatic in a positive way. The Wars of the Roses show was incredible and we’re hoping to make it there again later in the summer before it closes. Here’s a video of our weekend. Summer plans…

We spent the weekend at Warwick Castle, which is rapidly becoming one of our favourite places. We were there to watch the Wars of the Roses show and stay in a Knight’s Village Lodge. Here’s a short video of what we were up to. Turn up the volume, it’s dramatic! Wars of the Roses Live This summer until 3rd September, guests can choose their allegiances in the Wars of the Roses live show. The battle takes place on the River Island. It is set in 1455, when the House of Lancaster holds throne. The House of York challenges the crown of King Henry…
