Thursday photo #223

Today is the first day for weeks that we have no plans at all. After a holiday in Northumberland last week, we headed home for the weekend before setting off again. This time, we were London bound. The intensity of summer holidays On Saturday, I headed to Monmouthshire on my own for my SUP lesson whilst the girls went to Bristol with their dad. It’s the first time I’ve had a day without them all summer and much as I missed them, its was also a relief. Summer holidays are so intense. The girls are at an age where they’re…

An Inspire2Adventure SUP lesson – when advertising backfires

So much quieter than the coastal resorts further south and close to some idyllic parts of Scotland. And yet, this time, we’ve realised that being here is a mistake. Yorkshire Having booked a few days in Northumberland, we decided to extend our holiday with a couple of nights in North Yorkshire on the way. We booked a quiet campsite near to some stunning cycling…

Last minute summer childcare with Super Camps

Summer holidays are tough. It’s amazing to be able to enjoy time as a family. Playing outdoors, hitting the beach, theme parks, climbing trees or just watching a favourite movie. But that’s not real life, is it? So, what happens when you have to work? When you take on an unexpected contract or, quite frankly, when you can’t stand another moment of trying to keep the children entertained? About Super Camps Super Camps provide OFSTED registered holiday camps for children aged from 4 to 14 during school holidays. Camps are held at 83 locations around the UK, and they are…
