Family Camping Essentials and Tips

This year we’re planning our very first camping trip. It’s something we’re all very excited about! I have fond memories of camping from when I was a child. It’s something we used to do fairly often. Our twins are seven years old and we’re yet to take them camping, but that’s all about to change this year! The thing is though, I know nothing about camping other than we’ll need a tent, sleeping bags, something to cook on and that’s about it! I recently turned to the blogging community to ask them for their help! In particular I wanted to… [Read More]

Getting the family outdoors

This summer my husband and I have decided that we’d like to try and make a really big effort to spend more time outdoors as a family. There are so many benefits to spending time outdoors such as better mental health and reduced stress levels. We have so many ideas as to how we can encourage the whole family outdoors. The first thing we’re doing is ditching the car on the school run when we can and walking instead. Naturally this is better for the environment for lots of different reasons, but it’s also better for us. It means we… [Read More]

2019: The Year of Family Camping Holidays

As per the title of this post, 2019 is going to be the year that we as a family will embrace camping! I have fond memories of camping when I was a child. I remember my parents having a practise run in the garden of putting the tent up, taking it down and packing it all away again. In all fairness it was a lovely big tent.

All I want for 2018 is….

Every new year brings a new start. It’s a time for people to make resolutions, reflect on the year gone by, and think about what the new year will bring. As I wrote earlier this month, I’ve decided not to make any new years resolutions. This decision was made because I’m actually very happy with where my life is right now. 2017 saw me loosing two stone in weight. I ran my first half marathon, and I have a very positive outlook on life. My children are happy and settled in school, and although I accepted redundancy from the company… [Read More]

Camping Memories with Mum

I like to think that my childhood was a good one. My sister and I didn’t really want for anything. We had nice holidays, nice things and never went without. One of my fondest memories was when my mum took my sister and I camping with her friend and her daughter. We went to the Gower Peninsula. Three Cliffs Bay Caravan Park to be precise. It was beautiful. The view of the sandy beach with the three pointed cliffs, and the sound of the sea was very serene. It was like an adventure! When we arrived the first thing we… [Read More]
