LEGOLAND Windsor Resort – A Review

We love to go for a day out as a family. And during these summer holidays, Mr H has had a few weeks off and we’ve been having a staycation. As part of this staycation, we woke up early one morning and piled into the car to drive to LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort. Little Miss H had been pushing to go to LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort ever since her twin besties had been earlier in the year. We were thrilled that we could…

In May, we were invited to the family theme park, Paultons Park. They were opening two new rides in Peppa Pig World and we were asked to go and review them. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to go. So when we knew we would be in Southampton for the weekend in early July, we decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to visit Paultons Park. Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World – A Review I have to admit that I…

A photograph of a little girl on a slide in Splashaway Bay on the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship Independence of the Seas - 10 Reasons Why A Royal Caribbean Cruise Would Make A Perfect Family Holiday - Mrs H's favourite things

The other week we were invited to spend turnaround day on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Independence of the Seas. The Independence of the Seas has just had a multi-million pound makeover and has some fabulous new features. Blogging has provided my family with some wonderful opportunities. But without a doubt, being able to spend a day onboard the Independence of the Seas was one of the most amazing experiences we’ve had. We got to appreciate everything that a Royal…

Our First Family Festival And Festival Essentials

On Spring Bank Holiday weekend, Little Miss H and I headed to Pippingford Park in Uckfield to attend our first family festival. Our visit had been arranged by Auntie B who was also coming too. She’d suggested that we join up with some of her friends and attend Elderflower Fields Festival. Apparently, Elderflower Fields is the ideal festival for small children. And a brilliant starter festival. I have to admit that I was quite anxious before we went. I was worried…

This is a collaborative post.  My family and I moved to Bristol when I was four years old. But when we moved our house was still being built. So we lived in a hotel for a month – the Unicorn Hotel. It was very exciting. We finally moved to our new house on my fifth birthday. And I always believed that our new house was my birthday present. We only lived there for five years but I was devastated when…

This is a collaborative post. Back in May 2012, when I was pregnant with our first baby, Mr H and I went on a babymoon to Rhodes. It was our last chance to have a holiday before we became parents. So we saved up our money and went to an amazing hotel and had a room with a private swimming pool. It was heaven. And the perfect way to relax before the pressures of parenthood began. Is your first child…

7 Things To Do In Tuscany

A photograph of a beautiful Tuscan landscape - 7 Things To Do In Tuscany - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a sponsored post. Italy has always fascinated me. I studied Classical Civilisation and Ancient History at university. And it was the Roman culture and history that intrigued me the most. Yet until Mr H and I went to Florence in 2006, my only time in Italy had been a brief journey through the Mont Blanc Tunnel when I was a child.  But from the moment that Mr H and I stepped foot in Florence, I fell in love with…

Away From The Beach: Amazing City Holidays For Families

A photograph of Brooklyn Bridge in New York at night - Away From The Beach: Amazing City Holidays For Families - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post.  Sure, there’s nothing wrong with beach holidays, but they can begin to feel a bit samey after a while, right? That’s why it’s always a good idea to mix up the type of holiday we go on, including with our families. If you’ve been visiting the same old spot for years on end, it’s time to mix it up – and perhaps visit a city instead of a beach. There’s no shortage of excellent city…
