Go on try something new – a festival or camping?

Life’s still hard with the recession and we all need some fun and adventure in our lives, so for this month’s Lifestyle feature over on Radio Verulam with the lovely Danny smith on his Drivetime show, I talked about festivals and camping. I first decided to got to a festival when Little Dimples was 18months (two years ago) and Curly […]

The Key To A Successful Family Festival

I’m so excited, because I’m off to review Just So Festival this weekend (In Cheshire at Rhode Hall: doors open at 2pm on Friday and we get kicked out of the campsite on Mon at 11). Last year was brilliant, but it was my first ever festival, so I had no idea what to expect. Apparently I picked the best […]

Don’t Go Thinking I’m More Adventurous Than You!

I had a couple of lovely comments from Mums watching the funny stream of muddier and muddier instagram photos appearing during my visit to Penn Festival.  Many suggested how brave I was, or how well I was coping with mud up to the kids knees. So I thought I’d set the record straight, because I don’t want you all reading […]

What To Wear To A Family Festival?

You’re packing the picnic basket, ear defenders for the kids and maybe even the tent if you are brave like us. Perhaps you were inspired by my post on why family festivals are great? But what’s worrying you is ‘OMG what am I going to wear to a family festival?‘ It’s not exactly glastonbury, and you probably don’t want to […]

I know many of you won’t be even considering the hundreds/thousands of pounds that it costs to go on holiday this summer. You might also be struggling to take 7-14 days off work. I’ve got a great alternative for you … Hows about thinking about a Family Festival instead?   If you’ve never been to a festival before, it’s a […]

Tops From Joe Browns For Mum To Wear at a 6yr Old Boy’s Party By PolkaDot Parties

How did that happen, Curly Headed Boy is now 6 years old? (Yes, it is a rhetorical question, I kind of get that time passes, I just never knew it could be so quick and never imagined what it would be like for him to keep getting older and older!). Would you like an idea for a really unusual birthday party for […]

I’m a Blogger Blagger, fancy joining me?

So loads of people have been commenting about whether bloggers in general are blaggers, or whether it’s just the new ones, just mummy bloggers or just a small group or large group of them. Then there was a particular incident where a ‘Real Mum’ (how self-righteous is that title) decided to have a go at a Mum who had missed […]

Amazing Competition: For a Radio Flyer!

I am soooo excited!  My first every competition is going to be for the most amazing prize, a Radio Flyer from The Wagon Company. What is a Radio Flyer you might ask, and why would I want one? Well initially I just thought that it looked like a nice red trailer that my kids might like to play with, but which was maybe […]

Video Wed: My First Festival, What a Corker: Just So!

Wow, what a magic thing twitter is!  One day a few months ago I said I wanted to go to a family festival and asked for advice, having never been to any (I know that’s a bit tragic).  Go to Just So they said; so we did! Verdict: BEST family festival ever, what a brilliant one to start with!  (Please […]
