in the night garden

Lucas loves In The Night Garden so I would love to go and watch it live with him. D won the calendar in the advent competition and Lucas really chuckles and reaches out to touch Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy on the pages. Putting the programme on TV is the only thing guaranteed to calm him down when he is unsettled.

just so festival

The Just So Festival looks amazing! I think for our first family festival I would prefer to stay in one of Freds Yurts rather than camping. The festival has lots of entertainment on from live music to juggling, there are baby and toddler areas with activities on for them, a changing and bathing area as well as a quiet feeding area.

Lake windermere

D and I visit Windermere every September, we stayed in a cottage in Staveley this year which was lovely. It was perfect for being a little bit more secluded from the hustle and bustle of Windermere but had great access to the train for going into Windermere and Kendal.


I really fancy going on a beach holiday in Wales but I have no idea where. I am going to look in North Wales so we don’t need to travel too far.


I am very excited for the holiday we have already booked, we are going to Fuerteventura in 2 weeks for some winter sun and I will turn 30 whilst we are away.


Manchester United

D really wants to take Lucas on the Manchester United Museum and Stadium Tour after his 1st birthday, we were originally thinking of going for his birthday (what more could a 1 year old want?!) but we have now booked his Christening and are combining it with his birthday so will be too busy that weekend x

    I also want to take my girls to see In the Night Garden. They both love Iggle Piggle (personally don’t see the appeal). I want to do the Harry Potter tour too but think that’s just for us adults.

    Very jealous of your winter sun holiday! Also Wales, I would like to go to the Gower Peninsula as its meant to be beautiful there. We were very impressed by Cardiff last year. Enjoy 2016, it looks like you’ve got some great plans! I found your post via #justanotherlinky πŸ™‚

    I live in North Wales! Beaumaris has a nice front or Llandudno has a nice beach/front but it’s also like a city but has a pier too. There are quite a few place. Thanks for linking up with #justanotherlinky
