Mole’s questions of late are getting more weird and wonderful…

“What are stars made of?” cue a quick youtube video courtesy of Brian Cox.

“What is water made of?” That’s easy, hydrogen and oxygen.

“Why is the sea salty?” Ummmmmmm.

“What are our bodies made of?” Ummm, carbo...

This Summer we took Mole, Hedgehog and Otter abroad for this first time in about five years. Mole has been abroad only once before, to Mallorca when she was about 10 months old, where she sweated a lot, and breastfed the whole time on the plane which was the only way t...

One of the highs of train travel with little ones has to be spreading ourselves out across four seats with a table, at around hour four of the journey, by which time the picnic is long eaten, the books have been read, and everyone is burnt out and settling into a snooz...

It’s been a tent themed Summer this year, with four camping trips made in as many months, (from May to August). Inspired by a dream of ‘getting back to nature’ and the idea of cheap and easy trips away, I set out to conduct a sort of camping experiment over the Summer,...

So we’ve returned from our jaunt around South Wales, with much mud, rain, chocolate, sand and farm animals involved. I’ve had a lot of fun, been cold and wet sometimes, been cosy with wine at other times, and learned a few things in the process, such as how useful DVD’...

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea… have I gone a bit too ‘tally ho and hip hip hooray’ British for you? sorry about that.

I’m still reminiscing about our Welsh jaunt to see Granny Purple Hair, which featured a seaside trip just abo...

It appears that we have irreversibly changed. We now have children that we are addicted to, and doing ‘adult stuff’ without them is all very well, but it starts to get hollow pretty quickly.

We lately embarked on a twosome trip away – a thousand miles away to Iceland to...

We recently took a trip to Dorset (otherwise known as the Jurassic Coast) in which it was freezing, windy, and rained a lot. It was February, but for a change of scene and a low season holiday cottage, we were satisfied.

My pre-holiday research consisted of about 15 min...

Last week we all went on holiday to Norfolk, to stay by the beach in a caravan.

It was wonderful and ‘intense’ in equal measure. Intense because we were living with a one year old and nearly three year old 24/7 with only a curtain to separate us at night. The unsurprisi...

It’s the first of our holidays for 2016, and this year I’m on a roll with the planning.  I’ve got them all mapped out for the year, it’s my antidote for an increasingly domestic life with two little people for company. It’s also the first time in two years we’ve been s...
