Camping in the Forest recently conducted a survey and found that 48% of parents said they miss the lack of responsibility which came with being a child and 37% of parents worry their children are too wrapped up in technology. So we spent the weekend with them at their Holmsley site the New Forest camping and unleashing our inner child.
This plus that equals…. camping with a toddler
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about our camping trip at the weekend. Our first ever camping trip. A blogger trip with Camping in the Forest. Most importantly the reality of camping with a toddler.
Enter our travel competition for the chance to get away from the daily grind and experience three nights of back-to-basics fun this summer with Camping in the Forest!
In a recent survey* carried out by Camping in the Forest, figures revealed over a third (35%) of us would like to return to the care-free days of being eight years old. Not only that, 19% of us miss camping holidays the most when it comes to the things we miss about our childhoods.
Whilst we were on holiday with Verdant Leisure at their stunning Heather View Leisure Park in County Durham a couple of weeks ago we had some lovely days out. I’m going to try to write about them all over the coming weeks, but today I wanted to share our trip to Diggerland.
We are not long back from the most fabulous holiday with Verdant Leisure. We spent Half Term week in County Durham, at the beautiful Heather View Leisure Park which is only a walk away from the town of Stanhope.
It’s a long old drive from Norfolk to County Durham. Long! L handled it like a trooper though. It’s fair to say when we arrived at Heather View he was eager to get out of the car. Our lodge was quite ready for us when arrived so we took the chance to have a little wander around the site.
I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?
For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
Well we are home after an epic holiday. I’m almost caught up on the laundry and I’m thoroughly exhausted! It’s been a busy week but so much fun, with a few calm moments too.
So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
This plus that equals…. long journeys with a toddler
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about long journeys with a toddler.
It doesn’t seem to matter how you travelling. Where you are going. All long journeys seem to consist of the same things.
This plus that equals…. A Weekend Off
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the joys of a weekend off.
Not a weekend off work, although that happened as well. No, the heady joys of a weekend off parenting.
This plus that equals….my Spring wish list
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about a few things I would like to get sorted now that Spring has sprung.
