Family Fun // Center Parcs + National Storytelling Week

Once upon a time in a forest… there was a young girl in a tutu and superhero mask, who just wanted to eat the chocolate cake! Happy National Storytelling Week!

Family Fun // Children’s Art Galleries

Busby and I were walking through the art gallery in Harrods in October (on our way to the Christmas shop!) and she was drawn to all of the awesome, colourful artwork hanging up. “Mummy?” she said, “Do you think that my paintings could be in here one day?” I nodded, and told her what I tell her every time she asks me a question about her future: “Yes, darling. You can be whoever you want to be, and do whatever job you set your mind to and your heart on.”  ...

It’s been something that I’ve been eager for him to begin for months now, but just haven’t had the time to sit down and find out where our local lessons are. Then the lovely folk at Water Babies got in touch and asked us whether we’d be interested in trying out a semester of lessons at one of the two pools local to us. We opted for the lessons at Winifred Holtby School in Hull, as they run on  ...

Family Fun // The Cadbury Owl Cake #FreetheJoy

Busby and I love baking together, so when the fabulous folk at Cadbury set us the rather delicious task of baking an owl cake (with LOTS of scrummy Cadbury chocolate), we couldn’t wait to get (egg) cracking and #FreetheJoy. We were given a yummy, basic chocolate sponge recipe to work from, which was very easy to follow. You can find the recipe over on the Huffington Post here. It gave Busby the opportunity to do lots of counting, weighing and measuring! We had fun putting the  ...
