Soft play and farm parks. We are over. Recently I’ve realised that I have perhaps overloaded and in turn, reached my full capacity of enthusiasm towards children’s park, soft plays, farm parks or any other child orientated activity. Hectic and over-priced places that if we are all honest for the average adult are not that fun. After 5 years I’m well over it. But guess … Continue reading Soft play and farm parks. We are done. Move over for The National Trust. First stop Dyrham park
Today I took the small ones to go and see ‘The Night That Autumn Turned To Winter’. A Little Bulb theatre production for kids at the Old Vic in Bristol. You know when you watch a kids film and it’s tongue in cheeky and silly enough to make you laugh more than your kids.. (or maybe that’s just me). It’s like that.

When our mate , boatbuilder Chris was asked to make a traditional gypsy bow top caravan on a trailer 4 years ago, he thought he would give it ago and 12 Twagons (and more on the go) later ‘Wild Wood … Continue reading Introducing the Twagon
Prauge Review We Recently took a (No kids allowed) weekend trip to Prague. I had never been before and I was super impressed. It’s got ALOT going for it. We were only there for 3 days and really exhausted from non-stop work/kids/illness, so we just decided to go with the flow and see what we fancied doing each day rather than trying to cram everything … Continue reading PRAGUE HAS GOT IT ALL GOING ON!
On Sunday I had a bit of well deserved ‘me time’ and went down to the ‘Frome Independent Market’…alone… it was bliss. http://www.thefromeindependent.org.uk On the first Sunday of each month (March – December 10am – 3pm) our amazing, creative, quirky little town shuts down to traffic and turns itself into ‘The Frome Independent’. The streets become jam packed with people and stalls, full of fantastic talent … Continue reading FROME INDEPENDENT MARKET
We went camping at the weekend in a field in Dorset, near Weymouth. Its about 1.5 hours away from where we live in Frome. We ‘hired’ out a field (which was surprisingly easy to do) for our exclusive use of as there was so many of us. It was very basic, with only tent toilets and thats about it as far as it went amenities … Continue reading FAMILY CAMPING AND DORSET BEACHES
