Christmas Photo Spots in London

Yesterday afternoon I posted some pictures to my stories of our walk around London. It prompted quite a few responses and all with the same theme, how beautiful London was looking in its festive attire and how I capture lovely photos of Ita in London. I certainly do not have the skills to remove peopleContinue reading “Christmas Photo Spots in London”

Ita’s playhouse (The Snug from Waltons)

Over the years, I have had so many lovely and positive comments on Ita’s playhouse, especially on our seasonal makeovers. As such, I thought I would share more info on her playhouse and on how we create the little transformations. Ita has had this playhouse now for around 3 and ½ years as it wasContinue reading “Ita’s playhouse (The Snug from Waltons)”

Giving Back this Christmas, 2020

It would be fair to say that 2020 has been the weirdest year. The covid pandemic was a real shock to the world and most have been affected by it in one way or another. It changed everything we had planned but I am absolutely determined that it won’t affect Christmas. (Even if it seemsContinue reading “Giving Back this Christmas, 2020”

PJ Masks Toy Review

Items gifted for review. With Christmas fast approaching there will be many new toys coming out. I honestly find it quite overwhelming and find it difficult to determine what would make a good toy for Ita. By that I mean one she will enjoy and play with for ages, as well as learning from itContinue reading “PJ Masks Toy Review”

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”
