Last month will be forever burnt into my memory as Husband and I shipped the kids off to France with their Grandparents while we celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary in Croatia. The week before we left I juggled keeping the kids entertained and my excessive work to do list and when we got back life switched to healthy eating, back to school shopping and catching up with my besties. A summer to remember.
This month Husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary with a child-free holiday to the beautiful country of Croatia. We stayed at the Sensimar Adriatic Beach adults only resort on Croatia's stunning Dalmatian coastline. Located at the foot of mount Biokovo in the small town of Živogošće, Sensimar Adriatic Beach is a TUI hotel on the South Coast of Croatia. It lies roughly 2 hours south of Split and half an hour from the port town of Markaska. To say we were pleased with our choice of holiday destination and adult only, all inclusive hotel would be an understatement.
There are lost of pluses to self-catering holidays with kids including more space, flexibility and perhaps even your own pool, but the downside that you need to cook and do it with limited equipment. Here are 5 meal ideas for self-catering holidays with kids that are quick and use minimal pots and pans. They are tried and tested by my 4 very fussy little people.
So, you and your spouse are itching to have a fun and exciting road trip! However, you have a little baby that you are afraid to take. How are you supposed to have a fun and stress free road trip with a baby? Well, I am here to tell you that it is possible to have a great road trip even if you think the baby might ruin your fun.
These days, an increasing number of children spend most of their time indoors wired to technology. A lack of physical activity predisposes them to obesity-related health problems. Apart from being overweight, children develop weaker muscles and bones if they don’t exercise regularly, while chances of getting type-2 diabetes and high blood pressure increase as they grow older too.
Sudocrem has discovered that children are spending around 45 hours a week in front of a screen and only 4 hours playing in the great outdoors. They also found that a staggering 9 out of 10 children (89%) are unable to recognise a butterfly and 51% don’t know what a Bumblebee looks like. 1 in 3 didn't know bees make honey... Shocking stats!
I've linked up with Sudocrem to give away one of their fab Adventure Kits which has been specifically designed to encourage kits to get outside and play!
July. How hot were you?! I didn't know if I was coming or going last month. Plus my emotions were all over the place with one child finishing pre-school and the other finishing Infants. Hello holidays and time with my beauties...
We’ve teamed up with Gulliver's theme park to give away a family ticket worth over £70 for a bumper day out at Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath, Gulliver’s World in Warrington or Gulliver’s Land in Milton Keynes.
School's out for Summer! Whoop whoop!
We've had a big brainstorm over the weekend and here's our list of all the fun activities we want to tick off our bucket list before the new school year starts in September (I've managed to sneak a few practical ones in too!)...
The kids are away over the Bank Holiday so Husband and I are making the most of it with multiple trips to the cinema and a cheeky cocktail!
