In previous years, we have helped raise thousands of pounds for Comic Relief and Sport Relief as part of blogger collective Team Honk. In 2014, we were part of a national team which moved a baton from Land’s End to John O’Groats, and in 2015 we were part of the huge Danceathon at Wembley Arena. Team Honk have raised in excess of £80,000 since 2013. Continue reading
Hasn’t 2016 been a funny old year? It’s certainly one we’ll be talking about for years to come. For us, it’s been another year full of adventure and exploration. As the children are getting older, our trips have gotten further away and more adventurous. We’re moving from little farm zoos to more exciting activities. What have you gotten up to this year? Continue reading
Barcelona in the Catalonia region of Spain is somewhere I’ve visited in the past. Do you remember those heady days without children, when you could go anywhere without worrying about school attendance, or how to keep little ones entertained, or having to pack for more than just yourself? It seems like a lifetime ago for me, but I’d love to revisit some of the places I’ve seen in the past with my children, though I suspect the activities once we were there would be a bit different! I would hope so anyway. Continue reading
On Sunday, I had a little child-free day out of my own. To Doncaster in South Yorkshire. I know, right? It’s not the most glamourous of towns, but then I’m used to that. It wasn’t to do anything particularly adventurous, well unless you call walking at a steady pace through the town centre adventurous. There wasn’t even a prize at the end of my walk. So why did I bother? Continue reading
Yes I know it’s still October but I like being prepared and I’m feeling a bit left out as the rest of the blogging world seem to be circulating their Christmas gift guides already. I thought I’d do one for those who love days out and travel. Continue reading
As a family travel blogger, we get invited to some fantastic places. On most occasions we are invited to test somewhere as a regular punter. We get to see what everyone else sees, and try out the things that are available to everyday paying guests. We love sharing our thoughts and experiences with you so you can make up your mind if a particular day out is the right one for you and your family. Continue reading
Trespass have sent us a Wishful girls jacket to test. So far, so good!
It ticks all my boxes in terms of being warm, waterproof, and very practical. It ticks all my seven-year old’s boxes in terms of being pink. To her, the pink is very important. Back in my day *feels old* there was often a compromise to be made between practicalities and style. Not with this one. My very style-conscious daughter likes this jacket very much. Continue reading
On Sunday 8th March, myself and mini-me headed over to Wembley Arena for the first ever Red Nose Day Danceathon in support of Comic Relief. We were part of a group of other bloggers, friends, and family collectively known as #TeamHonk. We numbered almost 100 in a 2,000 strong crowd, plus various supporters. Continue reading
This week we were invited to go and chat to Sir Ranulph Fiennes, so of course, we jumped at the chance.
We met with Sir Ranulph ahead of an event organised by Marie Curie so we could talk to him about his latest project – the Marathon Des Sables – to raise money for the charity, which exists to provide end-of-life care to people suffering from terminal illness. Continue reading
It’s New Year time which means only one thing – Team Honk is back!
This March, myself and my eldest roving reporter Meredith will be taking part in the Comic Relief 2015 Danceathon, as part of the blogger collective Team Honk. Continue reading
