Our first visit to Drusillas zoo was in 2017. It was quickly decided that it is, hands down, our favourite family day out. You can imagine, as a large family with children ranging from under two to twelve years old, finding somewhere that offers something for everyone is hard and this is exactly why we … Continue reading Drusillas Zoo and the Rainforest Carousel
I really didn't expect to have to deal with my children being influenced from an outside source as young as eleven years old. We haven't even started high school. Yet, here I am, trying to tackle my son, who, up until five moths ago was a polite, calm, laid back kid who's biggest problem was … Continue reading Life with an eleven year old 'gamer'

Its been a while since I wrote a totally self centred blog post with no point to it at all. A post that is completly unhelpful, except to let me use it as a diary...so that when I look back one day will be able to remember that week in November 2017.

As usual, nothing … Continue reading Tulley Farm – Pumpkin and Spookfest

I am starting to wonder if, as well as pure ignorance, has political correctness contributed to Racism. Obama is right, so at what age do you start noticing and worrying … Continue reading Do kids see race?
We have been fortunate to visit a few special attractions around the South of England this Summer. When I have asked the kids which one stands out, Drusilla's Park won hands down. It has been so long since I have been to Drusillas It is nothing more than a vague memory to me. So when I was asked to … Continue reading Our Day at Drusillas
Well, what an experience this was!! On paper, this weekend was my idea of absolute hell. Six children (two babies), a tent, rain....lots of rain, mud....lots of mud and not a tiled roof in sight! Somehow, amongst the damp and filth, we dug deep into our British souls and managed to have a fantastic weekend … Continue reading CampBestival 2017
