Last weekend I got to attend my first ever blogging conference. #Blogonxmas was a fantastic experience and I had a absolutely fantastic time. Though it wasn’t until I was driving home that I realised just what it gave me. So here is what I got from #Blogonxmas
2 weeks ago I joined Slimming World. Having struggled with my weight for sometime, but doing something about it kept moving down my to-do list. It was when I was putting together something for the kids that gave me the kick I needed. Making memories is my motivation. Continue reading “Making Memories is My Motivation”
Choosing a good campsite can make a camping trip, so when I had a few friends recommend a site not that far away, I wanted to see what it was all about. Here is what I thought: Camping with the kids – Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park.
Over the past 2 weeks, we have made two trips to Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park. First time to see how Ro would like camping, and second because J really wanted longer time camping. This gave us more time to look around the site, and try out some of the facilities, including the on site food shack Kampers Kitchen.
Getting out for our first camping trip of 2017 made for a happy J. The question was, how would Ro like her first camping experience? The verdict is in.
J has been itching to go camping since we packed up on our final camping trip in 2015. I decided on a campsite that wasn’t too far away, just in case Ro didn’t share our love of camping just yet. Reading reviews and speaking to a few people who had stayed there, we decided on one. I booked a 2 night stay at Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park.

They say a change is as good as a holiday, and as it has seemed to have worked out, I get to have both.
There is always that extra spring in your step when it’s the last day of work before a couple of weeks annual leave. That down time you really need, and today for me is that day. We have plans to go to the seaside, camping and just have general fun together. Most importantly making memories. So is as they say, a change is as good as a holiday ?

Most people have a toolbox in their home, or a random stuff draw, just in case of emergencies. When you go camping, having a toolbox of bits and pieces for emergency repairs makes sense. Here is 6 essential items for your camping toolbox.
With school holidays approaching and time booked off work (yay!), I have started to think of family trips away. Our trips away generally consist of woods, canvas and family time.
There is something about getting away from it all, slowing down the pace and just taking time to enjoy family time with no agendas or plans. Camping is something I have done for many years, and something I want my kids to experience. Continue reading “Woods, Canvas and Family Time – From a Tent to a Trailer”
It has been a bit of a mixed bag of spanners for the past week at home, half term mixed with illness and unpredictable happenings so I have been a bit quite. So this post is about those little known facts about me. Suzanne over at And Another 10 Things nominated me to share 10 facts not widely known, so here goes.
This post is a complete flip to what I had pre-written in my head, but words matter, written, spoken and even thought. As I write this post, I have come to realise that blogs can have a lasting effect, even after we are gone. This world has just lost a wonderful talented young man, and the skies have gained another rainbow filled star. Continue reading “The Words left behind”
I have just had a stretch of 5 days off work as it’s half term. Leading up to the time off I had a few things I wanted to do while off work. Did I get any of these done? No, I have been walking around fueled on caffeine and very little sleep and achieved very little.
