As we did so many amazing trips when we were in Devon thanks to Devon’s Top Attractions, I wanted to share them all with you, so over the next few days expect plenty of posts about the places we went, what we loved, what we didn’t and most importantly what toddler L thought of them, so in this article I’ll tell you about our trip to Watermouth Castle.
We went to Watermouth Castle on our first full day in Devon, following two days of travelling and therefore two nights in different bedrooms we picked Watermouth Castle because it was literally 5 minutes from Sandaway Beach Holiday Park where we staying. I liked the idea that we could have a lazy morning and head there for when it opened, stay as long as L wanted and then be back to the caravan in minutes for more laziness.

This plus that equals…. my toddler’s favourite things
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 boy and things my darling little toddler loves, apart from he doesn’t! So here it is, my toddler’s favourite things.
Last week we were on holiday in Devon and we were lucky enough to have some amazing days out, but sometimes planning things to do with a toddler can be difficult, there’s a lot to think about, cost, activities, changing facilities, food, the list goes on. So here’s a run down of where we went and why we think they are awesome places to bring a toddler for some days out in Devon. Continue reading Top Toddler Days Out in Devon→
Devon is about 6 hours in the car from us, so with such a long way t travel there are a few things that we really need to have on arrival. A straight forward check in, something fun to do with L, food and a comfy bed. We were me with all these things. It was lovely.
For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
We were in Devon all of last week, so I didn’t write my top ten last Wednesday. I’ve been toying with a catch up top 20 this week, just missing a week or doing a top ten from the last 14 days and that is what I have opted for.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, going away takes up so much time, getting work done before hand, being shattered afterwards. Dealing with everything whilst you are away but without the home comforts. It can be draining but ultimately, we had fun and it was worth it, although there were times during the holiday I may not have said that!
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This is a post I’ve been thinking about for a while, why I blog happy, there have been a lot of things recently complaining about some mummy blogs being overly positive and therefore fake, one post in particular recently that went viral said we all sucked, nice. This isn’t slamming the blogs that write about the downsides to parenting, they are some of my favourites, they are hilarious, but I choose to be happy, be positive and here’s why.
So if you read my blog a bit then you’ll probably know I’m a huge Beatrix Potter fan and that L love the new Peter Rabbit tales from TV, so he was super excited to get to review the latest DVD offering.
Now my heart is always going to lie with the classic tales, there’s no denying that, but there is something about the new Peter Rabbit that has L transfixed. I think it’s the action more than anything, he adores it when they are being chased in their cart and he loves the owl, even if he’s one of the naughty ones.

This plus that equals…. Kids TV that makes me want to scratch my eyes out
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. Last week I shared my fave TV shows, this week I’m sharing the ones I hate most, and yes they are all kids TV shows. Needless to say they are all things my boy loves to watch, on loop, for hours.

Being a mum is a wonderful thing, but not an easy job. It takes a lot of strength to sacrifice all your dreams and pay attention to your baby unconditionally. What if you don’t really have to pick a side? What if you are given the opportunity to earn from home and do what you like without depending on anyone?
