The Marriott Regents Park Hotel Staycation (With Elmer the Patchwork Elephant)

Press Visit It’s no secret that this year has scuppered our travel plans. We were really fortunate to have gone to Dubai in January but our dream holiday to Disneyworld was cancelled and our ‘make up for it’ trip to Disneyland Paris was also vetoed. The thing about holidays and breaks away is that theyContinue reading “The Marriott Regents Park Hotel Staycation (With Elmer the Patchwork Elephant)”

Halloween Festival, Marsh Farm Essex

(Press Trip) We have just returned home from a brilliant day at Marsh Farm and all I want to do it talk about it! As always, the theme is eccentric and detailed and we had such a ghoulishly fun day. At the moment, you can buy tickets to either the pumpkin patch or the halloweenContinue reading “Halloween Festival, Marsh Farm Essex”

Winnifred Sanderson (Hocus Pocus) DIY Costume

After posting this photo of Ita as Winnifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus, I was blown away by the response. Mostly because we all know Ita isn’t the biggest Halloween fan, so this was the only character she wanted to be… and because buying this costume in the UK is completely unattainable, I put this togetherContinue reading “Winnifred Sanderson (Hocus Pocus) DIY Costume”

Peter Pan Afternoon Tea, The Shard

Nothing will make up for the fact that we have cancelled 2 Disney trips this year, but we do feel Ita’s disappointment and so when we heard that The Shard would be doing a themed Peter Pan tea, we booked as soon as we could. The afternoon tea takes place on the 31st floor. ForContinue reading “Peter Pan Afternoon Tea, The Shard”

The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire

In March (before the Covid19 lockdown), we were invited to The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire for a 2 hour session of skiing. None of us have ever skied before, so myself and my husband were nervous and didn’t know what to expect, whereas Ita was so excited and couldn’t wait to get herContinue reading “The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire”

Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea, Brigit’s Bakery London

Yesterday was a day we won’t forget in a hurry! That’s because yesterday was the day we boarded an old route-master, decked out in Peppa Pig galore, and ate cakes and treats as we were driven around some of the most famous landmarks in London including Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, HydeContinue reading “Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea, Brigit’s Bakery London”

Ice Cream Making at The Avenue Cookery School, London

Press Visit We were kindly offered the opportunity to take part in the Kids Ice Cream Making Class with The Avenue Cookery School in Wandsworth in South London. As a family we are always trying to do and experience new things, and we thought this would be an ideal example of this. We arrived aContinue reading “Ice Cream Making at The Avenue Cookery School, London”
