Konfidence children’s swimming products: Review

Swimming has always been an important part of my life, so I’ve been taking the girls swimming regularly since they were a few weeks old. As well as swimming in the pool, I love open water swimming – whether that’s in rivers, lakes or in the sea. About Konfidence I recently discovered Konfidence, who produce some amazing children’s swim accessories – just the sort of things my girls need. We were all delighted when Konfidence offered to send us a few of their products to try out, and we put them to good use on a sunny day in the…

When I’m a bit older

When I listen to my daughters chatting and playing together, the conversation always turns to what they will be able to do, “When I’m a bit older.” It reminds me of my own childhood and the innate yearning for all the exciting things that come with age.

National Sea Life Centre a review & events

Earlier this year, we were chosen as blogger ambassadors for the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. Following that, we were invited to attend on Saturday to experience the Mister Maker event and be among the first people to watch their new film, Octonauts: Amazon Adventure 4D. As always, the girls were so excited to be going to the Sea Life Centre. Libby was particularly excited because Mr Maker and the Octonauts are two of her favourite television programmes. Lia isn’t quite old enough to be as engrossed in television as Libby, but she is always delighted to go and…
